Merillat Cabinetry Unveils Shale—a New, Beautiful Paint Option

Posted by


Available in 19 door styles, Shale, Merillat Cabinetry’s new grey paint selection offers designers a beautiful new paint option adding to their already impressive collection.

ANN ARBOR—Merillat Cabinetry announced the launch of Shale, a new grey paint offering on September 21, 2015, adding to their collection of impactful color options. Shale was released following a continuously increasing demand for strong base colors from their customers.

“Grey is consistently the number one requested item by both designers and principals,” says Lori Lewandowski, Design Services Manager at Merillat Cabinetry. “We spoke with our customers. We listened to what they wanted. And we believe we have successfully fulfilled their needs with Shale.”

Grey as a base color is considered a mainstay in kitchens and bathrooms. It’s long lasting and allows for additional colors to apply to the interior design, and Shale fits a unique space within the grey spectrum. Shale is a fresh take on a rapidly growing movement that will last beyond today’s trends. It’s a beautiful neutral that makes perfect sense in today’s world of practical design, while packing a punch of individuality.

“Grey is becoming the ‘new neutral’. Shale is a soft, warm grey that pairs nicely with other neutrals and most of our stain palette. It’s clean, fresh and can be combined with several metal finishes as well,” says Lewandowski.

Merillat Cabinetry continues to listen to their customers in order to meet their needs and create products that will allow their businesses to grow. For more information on the new Shale paint offering, or Merillat Cabinetry and their compelling line of cabinetry products, visit www.merillat.com.
