Many colors and textures

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.

Kitchen design: the basics

By David Wright | February 16, 2021

In the mid-80’s, Ortho Books published a series of hardback construction books. One titled “Basic Remodeling Techniques,” published by Robert J. Dolezal, did a very good job of identifying basic design concepts that can be applied to most kitchens. Here is an excerpt you may find useful. “Arrange the various activity centers to provide the…

The back of a cabinet can tell you a lot

By David Wright | February 8, 2021

The back of this cabinet shows us the thickness of the box material – .75″ white melamine (aka industrial grade particle board), as well as the .5″ nailers and the cabinet back. The box can also be made of .75″ Russian plywood where the preference is for a wood interior instead of white.

Euro-style cabinets, hinges and full overlay doors

By David Wright | February 8, 2021

European style cabinets don’t have face frames. This clean, efficient look is standard in commercial and modern residential settings. We use Blum hinges with .75″ thick doors with a full overlay (meaning the doors cover the edge of the cabinet box). A small reveal (meaning the box is visibly wider than the doors and drawers)…

Flush pulls: form meets function

By David Wright | February 8, 2021

These flush pulls are great for garages and other applications where space is at a premium or protruding pulls are impractical. These are not available in the software right now but we can add them for you when we review your design together.

How do the toe kicks work?

By David Wright | January 21, 2021

One of the tricky parts of installing cabinets is getting them level. To simplify this process, we use adjustable leg levelers with a “snap on” toe kick cover. The cover snaps onto the leg levelers once you have them set just right. To turn this feature on, go to “Room” settings (left nav > 3D…
