Merit Kitchens Is Proud to Present Our

50th Commemorative Colour Collection

true white

“The designer’s dream; truly a way to counter those West Coast winter grey skies while highlighting your colourful design elements and décor.”

country lane green

This is for those of us who don’t love green but love this amazing green-grey hue that feels totally country, no matter what your style of kitchen. Looks particularly great with mid-tones of oak and fruit woods, and creamy or off-black counters.”

old stone

“Call it ‘the new white.’ This subtle neutral carries the patina of age and the freshness of now. It works perfectly with all the colours in the Merit palette and all the wood tones of your natural doors, especially light and mid-toned oak doors.”

pacific slate

“A natural colour that celebrates the dusky tones of West Coast ocean pools. Deep, moody and perfect for both modern and country schemes.”

morning fog

“I had a hard time letting go of this colour. It’s a wonderful mid-toned neutral that will work well with creamy white or dark slate counters.”

blue haze

“This deep bronzy blue has depth and character, and looks wonderful with bleached white oak, natural oak and mid-tones of wood. Perfect on beadboard cabinets, V- groove and solid panel doors.”

french grey

“This colour reminds me of Paris: the ancient buildings, dusky skies and French griege that’s in the stonework on the streets and old walls of the city. A sublime, sophisticated colour that looks great on both plain cabinet doors and V-groove country-style doors.”

new black

“Is it possible to have an even better black? Yes, it is! This black has rich brown undertones and a warmth that saves it from seeming stark, yet it brings all the drama of true black. It looks stunning with your palest white oak doors and married with either black or creamy white stone counters.”

— Lynda Reeves

Merit Kitchens 50th Anniversary

Merit Kitchens was founded in 1971 by fine craftsmen in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. They provided Western Canada with high-quality made to order cabinets.

On the Related Merits of Strength & Beauty, we have since grown into a world-class supplier of stunning cabinetry, representing excellence and extraordinary value, while maintaining the time-honoured tradition of hand-finishing.

The WESTCOAST FIVE–O Anniversary Door


An Homage to Our Roots: This plank style cabinet is a modern take on the 1970’s country kitchen, taking us back to MERIT’s beginnings. The plank or v-groove design has wound through centuries and across the globe a few times over. It speaks to history and continues to blend into many contemporary styles.
