Briefly describe your business and the type of products manufactured.
We manufacture custom, frameless cabinets for every room in the home and for all types of commercial spaces. The style of our projects span from modern to traditional and include a range of materials from solid wood, real wood veneer, acrylic, HD laminate, melamine, and the latest manufactured veneers. Many of our current projects, whether they are traditional or contemporary style, are mixing dark finishes with light finishes and mixing materials, such as wood veneer with acrylic.
What materials/species were used in this project/item?
High gloss acrylic
Stainless steel backsplash
Describe, in detail, the project/item's construction
The goal for this kitchen was to make the entire kitchen wall a contemporary feature wall in a very bright and open multi-use room (kitchen, dining, living). For this kitchen, we built frameless cabinets with full overlay doors and drawer fronts of high gloss acrylic for the wall cabinets and appliance panels and prefinished wood laminate for the base cabinets. The wall cabinets are bi-fold awning style. Cabinet pulls are a very slim profile edge pull to complement the contemporary style. The stainless steel backsplash added one more touch to making the entire wall a feature.
What is the most unusual aspect or outstanding characteristic of this entry?
This kitchen required that heating and air conditioning units that run along the wall above and parallel to the kitchen cabinets be hidden, blend with the rest of the cabinetry, and still provide access for maintenance. We accomplished this through removable, acrylic panels matching the wall cabinets and appliance front panels.
List any items that were outsourced.
Stainless steel backsplash.
