High-tech melamine


Melamine has come a long way. Today's "thermo fused laminates" (TFL) melamines are durable and the colors and textures are better than many expensive laminates. And, TFL price points are much lower! Textured melamines look great, are very durable and competitively priced. Doors come in modern slab and traditional shaker styles.

Beautiful cabinets


Beauty and durability are important qualities in cabinets and countertops. Choosing quality components can give a lifetime of functional millwork that always look great. Check out our cabinet specifications (materials).

Many colors and textures



Silicon Valley Cabinets are built with quality materials and feature doors and drawer fronts by Wilsonart. Click here to see the beautiful melamine colors and textures of the Wilsonart Lujo series for your doors, drawer fronts, edges and finished ends. We even offer matching colors for base trim and crown moldings.

Panel processing 


We offer panel processing (aka component manufacture) for cabinet shops, closet installers and panel providers. Please visit our panel processing site to learn more about ways we can reduce your costs and simplify your next job.
