Timberlake Cabinetry featured in three Builder Magazine Concept Homes at International Builders’ Show

Builder Concept Home 2012 Boomer Kitchen

The 2012 Builder Concept Home designed for the Baby Boomer generation, features Timberlake Sierra Vista Painted Maple Hazelnut cabinets throughout the kitchen.

Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, demonstrates the role cabinetry plays in defining the home styles of the three fastest growing generations of homebuyers as part of the Builder magazine Concept Homes in Eagle Creek, a master plan community located in Lake Nona in Southeast Orlando. Built in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show, the three show homes represent the unique lifestyles of Generation X, Generation Y and Baby Boomers. The Concept Homes are open to builders, remodelers, architects and designers February 8-11, 2012, during the International Builders’ Show as a means to showcase important shifts in home design, building products and community development.

“With Timberlake® cabinetry, the designers were able to use stock cabinets to create a custom look that clearly captures – and shapes – the lives of the very different generations who live in them,” said Laura-Jo Boynton, Brand Marketing for Timberlake. Adds Peter Osterman, Vice President of Operations for Centerline Homes, who built the homes, “For most customers, kitchens tend to be the most important room of a house and cabinets are one of the main elements that help set the tone.”

Gen Y kitchen: Sonoma Maple Espresso

Gen X kitchen: Lausanne Cherry Bordeaux

The Gen Y home features an open floorplan and uses a single Timberlake cabinetry style and color to maximize the space with clean design unity. The sleek look of the Shaker style Sonoma® line is featured in a deep maple espresso in the kitchen and baths. For the tech-savvy Gen Y’ers, the cabinetry is used to create a built-in media center in the office. It also shapes a kitchenette in the guest suite, blending usability and furniture-style looks.

In the Gen X home, functionality is as important as fashion in the busy lives of young families. Two contemporary cabinetry collections, both in warm cherry finishes, set the look in 15 rooms of the show home. The open kitchen features the sleek lines of the Lausanne collection’s slab door. Interior organization features, such as cabinet pull-outs and cutlery drawer dividers, add convenience for on-the-go X’ers. In the guest suite, Lausanne cabinetry creates a built-in wardrobe and chest that provides storage, as well as defining the room’s architecture. The mission-style design of New Haven greets visitors at the home’s handy “drop zone” and beautifully eliminates clutter in the bath.

The Boomer home features a variety of cabinetry style and color combinations, reflecting the eclectic tastes the older group has developed over a lifetime. In the kitchen, the light look of Timberlake’s Sierra Vista® Painted Maple with a Hazelnut glaze creates a sense of openness, while a deeper Cherry Chocolate finish warms the study. The well-appointed guest suite uses Rushmore® cabinetry in Maple Auburn to form a storage unit and desk that maximizes living space. Says builder Osterman, “The built-in cabinets allowed us to fit all of the comforts of a home into 300 square feet.”

“Homebuilders have always chosen Timberlake for the styles and colors that can differentiate their homes,” concludes Timberlake’s Boynton. “Today, they’re also using Timberlake cabinetry in innovative ways, like built-in media centers, drop zones and room dividers, to create a custom-feel extras at every budget level. It’s the difference that can close the deal with discerning homebuyers.”

Timberlake Cabinetry showcased in the New American Home 2011

Timberlake Cabinetry, a leading supplier to the new construction market, is the featured cabinetry provider for The New American Home (TNAH), the annual showcase house of National Association of Home Builders (NAHB) presented in conjunction with the International Builders’ Show in Orlando, FL, January 12-15, 2011. TNAH is considered the premier venue for new design trends, products and technology for builders, remodelers, architects and designers.

Timberlake Cabinetry is featured in nine rooms of the 11,200 square-foot home, which is designed in the American Empire style with Greek revival elements. Timberlake Rushmore® Cherry Java is seen in the kitchen, prep kitchen, master bedroom and bath, library. The in-law suite kitchen and living areas features Yellowstone® Maple Coffee Glaze. In the kitchen, the dark-hued Cherry Java is paired with the lighter Rushmore® Maple Hazelnut Glaze.

The two designer-selected cabinetry finishes are among the newest in the Timberlake line. Cherry Java is Timberlake’s darkest cherry finish, imparting a depth of color to the furniture-style cabinetry. Maple Hazelnut Glaze, made by wiping a rich, brown glaze over white-painted hardwood maple, creates a warm, dramatic contrast.

Timberlake will be hosting a customer/media event and guided tour celebrating the completion of the home on January 12, 2011. Customers and members of the media will have the chance to tour the home and meet with Timberlake executives and staff.

Continental Homes and Interiors, the husband-and-wife builder and interior design duo for TNAH, worked closely with Timberlake to achieve their desired results. Said builder Keith Clarke, “I’d never worked with Timberlake before The New American Home, but it was like they belonged there from the start.” Added interior designer Kate Clarke, “We worked closely with them on design. It was just superb.” Clarke even turned to Timberlake’s team to help her turn a design challenge into a designer focal point in the master bedroom. “I wanted to float the bed in the middle of the room,” she explains “but I didn’t want to see the back of a headboard.” The Timberlake team created a single furniture-quality headboard with built-in night tables on each side and bookcases on the back.

In line with the growing interest in energy-conscious homes, TNAH 2011 is being built to attain “Emerald” status of the National Green Building Standard, the highest of four levels. Timberlake is the first cabinet supplier to achieve green-approved status under the National Association of Home Builders National Green Building Standard. All Timberlake products are certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association (KCMA) Environmental Stewardship Program. To further promote the use of responsible environmental and business practices, 100% of Timberlake wood doors, drawer fronts and cabinet frames are sourced from sustainable forests within the United States.

“Custom-look cabinetry, eco-friendly products, and builder-focused service are the hallmarks of Timberlake,” says Laura-Jo Boynton, Brand Marketing for Timberlake. “The New American Home is a striking example of the difference we can make to homebuilders and buyers.”

The New American Home 2011 is being constructed on an infill building site in an older neighborhood near downtown Orlando. Located on the South side of Lake Davis, the home has panoramic views of the Orlando sky line. Unlike most previous editions, it was built for specific buyers and was designed to integrate their preferences for elegant style and warm livability.

Sponsored by the National Council of the Housing Industry, the Leading Suppliers of NAHB and Builder Magazine, this marks the 28th year The New American Home has been featured alongside the International Builders’ Show.
