Kitchen Design Ideas
Our custom cabinet design and craftsmanship expertise includes woodwork spanning the range of complete interior build-outs to free standing pieces to exclusive private meeting rooms, wine racks, tables, bars, and entertainment centers, as well as kitchen, bathroom vanities, laundry and garage units and interior office cabinetry is just a few examples we specialize in.
We work closely with architects and contractors together with customers to provide an artistic touch to both commercial and residential custom cabinetry projects for ALL OF Southern California. To ensure that our designs satisfy the customer’s vision and specific requirements, each piece is made with the highest quality craftsmanship that we have currently in some of the most prestigious homes in Orange County.
The design of our custom cabinets is based on the very best woodworking techniques. Additionally, most pieces are built using the finest solid wood species including Cherry, Walnut, Mahogany, Oak, Maple, Teak, as well as some exotic woods such as Zebra, and EBONY etc..
Wood selection provides a critical first step towards achieving the important cabinet design goals of excellence, wide appeal and lasting quality. This allows us to achieve the highest level of perfection each time we create a cabinet.
The guiding principle of universal design is simple – a space should be comfortable and easy to use for anyone, regardless of age or ability.Take into account the age, height and needs of everyone in the household as you make kitchen design plans. This is also a time to consider future needs that will enable you or others to “age in place” at home, such as lower-height counters, easy-access storage and organization cabinets, and simple-to-use hardware for the cabinet doors.
Consider whether to incorporate a workspace into your kitchen where you can use laptop to check email, research recipes or take care of paperwork. Use cabinetry to tuck in a small work desk with storage cubbies for organizing school notes, papers and small items. Incorporate a charging station for the family’s phones and other electronic devices.
Add more functionality and beauty to your kitchen design by creating a kitchen island. Our vast array of cabinetry options enables you to add an additional sink, special cabinets for storage and organization, extra seating for entertaining or use during mealtime, and much, much more. An island can also be used as an artistic element through the use of contrasting kitchen cabinet styles and finishes.
Installing open shelving not only provides additional storage, but it enables you to showcase decorative items or collectibles that can enhance your kitchen design. Open shelving can also be used for basket storage to add texture and visual interest to your kitchen design, while keeping clutter cleverly contained.
The way you light your kitchen can have a dramatic impact on its beauty and functionality. For example, in addition to installing lighting in traditional areas such as over the stove and sink, use under-cabinet and over-cabinet light to create a cozy look. Or showcase your beautiful glassware or china by installing cabinets with glass inserts and interior cabinet lighting
