Brent Lanz on the present and future of cabinetry

Designing contemporary urban kitchens with Gen Y in mind requires a knowledge of emerging products and a global perspective. In a Surface and Panel article (see pages 12-14), Brent Lanz, President of Lanz Cabinets, and our own Leta Falk, Marketing Director at KML designer finishes, shared their insights on the present and future of urban kitchen design.

The article, written by Leah Wheeler, traced the impact of European influences on kitchen cabinetry, including the emergence of textured TFL panels as a way to get the look and feel of wood while improving its cost, durability, consistency, stain resistance, and eco-friendliness. Citing Lanz, she noted how textured TFL gave him a customization option in multi-family structures, including millennial-friendly urban high rises.

From the unique look of textured TFL, to its Euro-chic roots, to its eco-friendly cache, textured TFL looks to have a bright future in urban kitchen cabinet design.
