Cabinet colors and specs

Door and drawer front materials

We offer three basic categories of door and drawer front (and finished end) materials:

  • Thermo-fused laminate (TFL). Unlike laminate that is glued onto the surface of the door and drawer fronts, TFLs are heat and pressure bonded onto the substrate. The process adds a slight texture to the surface making the wood tones hard to distinguish from actual wood. TFLs have become very popular for cabinet door fronts due to the lower cost and high durability. We offer Wilsonart Lujo, Egger, Salt, AGT and CLEAF.
  • High-pressure laminate. We offer high-pressure laminate options from Wilsonart, Formica,   Matte textures are available for most.
  • Pre-finished wood veneer. We offer Shinnoki.

Door style

All doors come as slab or shaker.

Cabinet specifications

Silicon Valley Cabinets gives you a choice of materials that allow you can design a durable, attractive cabinet at a price that suits your budget.

Cabinet box: Euro-style construction, .75 pre-finished maple or .75 industrial-grade white melamine furniture board (your choice). FYI - the furniture board is not your grandmother's particle board. It is industrial grade - very dense and heavy. Almost all commercial jobs use this melamine-coated high-density melamine panel.

Edgeband. The edgeband matches the door color and is made of PVC.

Door styles: slab or shaker.

Cabinet doors and drawer front materials: High pressure laminate or pre-finished wood veneer.

Applied finished ends. Where the end of a cabinet is visible it is common to use the door material. This can be applied as a separate panel or "integral" as part of the cabinet. Applied finished ends "capture" the back of the doors; they add .75 to the cabinet width. See the "how to" page for more on this.How it works

Drawer boxes: .5" Russian birch ply or .5" white melamine furniture board

Hinges: Euro-style cabinet hinges

Drawer slides: Full-extension undermount soft-close

Drawer pulls: Jamison bar pulls standard (or, bring your own and we will install them)

Installation: We can install your cabinets or you can use your own contractor.

Keep in mind: Once you begin designing your cabinets there are some details you will want to keep in mind:

  • The height of the cabinet includes the 4" toe kick. A 34" tall cabinet is 30" of box, 4" of legs.
  • Cabinet interiors are white or pre-finished maple, depending on the box material you choose. The box is then edgebanded to match your door front color.
  • Applied or integral finished ends. The finished end is a color that matches your doors - you need them where the exterior end of the cabinet is visible (not against a wall or another cabinet). An applied finished end adds .75 to the width of the cabinet.
  • The depth of the cabinet is the box only! The cabinet depth does not include 7/8" (.875") for the doors. Standard base cabinet depth is 24" + 7/8" doors = 24-7/8".
  • Shaker doors cost more.
