3D pre-finished wood veneer kitchen

Shinnoki pre-finished wood veneer

By David Wright | March 17, 2023

This kitchen is being designed using Shinnoki pre-finished wood veneer. Shinnoki costs less than traditional wood veneer because it comes already finished. When this kitchen is complete we will post actual images.

3D Kitchen

By David Wright | March 17, 2023

This kitchen is about to get a lot more efficient with a new design and custom TFL cabinets. TFL stands for thermofused laminate and has become very popular for cabinet doors due to the incredible wood tones, texture and low price point. Notice the dimension view that shows cabinet sizes in detail.

Silicon Valley ADU

By David Wright | March 2, 2022

This beautiful Silicon Valley ADU uses thermofused laminate (TFL) for the cabinet door and drawer fronts. TFL is similar to traditional laminate but with more texture and literally heat fused onto the surface of the substrate. The price and durability can’t be beat and it’s nearly impossible to tell it from wood.

Cleaf Noce Daniella TFL goes to the beach!

By David Wright | February 14, 2022

Homeowner-designed Modern thermofused laminates (TFL) can give stunning results. This Aptos kitchen uses Cleaf Noce Daniella TFL for a rich, wood tone with a subtle texture. TFL is a form of melamine that is baked onto the substrate and put under high pressure with textured plates. It’s nearly impossible to tell it isn’t wood yet…

Two-tone kitchen

By David Wright | January 27, 2022

This house has some very nice design features, beginning with a diagonal floor orientation that points right to the cabinets! This is good design because the cabinets are Wilsonart Lujo White Cypress, uppers and Phantom Charcoal for the base cabinets. These cabinets are waiting on countertops and appliances but, in the meantime… beautiful!

shaker cabinets

A Santa Cruz Mountain kitchen!

By David Wright | November 11, 2021

This kitchen was the result of good design and material choices and Silicon Valley Cabinets! The shaker-style, painted doors give a traditional feel, with quartz counter tops for excellent form and function. Thanks to the homeowner for sharing these photos.

Kitchen at the beach!

By David Wright | September 8, 2021

This kitchen is designed to take advantage of windows that look out over the Monterey Bay. The home is tiny so good storage is essential. Check back soon – we hope to share photos of the real thing once it’s installed.
