Paint-grade shaker-style

Over the past few years, the number of paint-grade projects has risen dramatically, many using a white and gray palette. This recently-completed kitchen follows that pattern.

Total House Remodel

For this project, the contractor stripped the water-front home to the bare studs, reframed the roof to create vaulted interior spaces where flat 8-foot ceilings previously existed and asked us to provide new select alder cabinetry.   And here is the finished product!

Faceframe or Frameless?

There are two general ways to build kitchen cabinets; with a faceframe or frameless.    Most custom shops do one or the other because the equipment needs for each are a little different.   Our shop builds faceframe cabinets, but occasionally, we are asked for a sleek european look that suggests frameless.   To meet the desires of those customers, we build a modified faceframe cabinet where the stiles and rails are minimized giving the cabinet the look of a frameless cabinet.   Here is a recently completed example in clear finished maple of this type of cabinet:

Rustic Cabin

Range Hood with Walnut Inlays

Here is an attractive kitchen, in stained cherry, with an interesting range hood.   The most obvious fact is that there is a backlit piece of stained glass that matches the island pendant lights.   Secondly, the hood has a walnut inlay that complements the customer’s dining room table design.
