Two Tone Modern Kitchen Remodel (Before & After)

This photo album below features a full set of before and after pictures of the kitchen remodel. In this project, we had shifted the front entrance from the foyer to the center of the kitchen wall.  This allowed for a set of full depth cabinets (24″) on both sides of the room.  Further, we have taken down the partition wall between the dining room and the kitchen to connect the two spaces for an open style living, and making it easier to entertain guests and having conversations.  The contractor reinforced ceiling in this area with a header, 4×4′s on the sides, and new...

Custom Color Paints!

Ever wanted to be different?  This customer (name kept private, let’s call her Stacey) certainly did.  This project was done in Fremont, CA, and Stacey here told me she wanted a set of green cabinets.  While all three of my product lines had a couple options of green, none of them had the exact shade of green Stacey wanted. Hmm, dilemma you say?  Well not exactly.  Both Sollera Cabinets and Plato Woodwork offer a custom color program.  While Plato’s offering is more extensive and customers are able to send in samples to the factory for a match, Sollera offers the ability for...

Wall Mount Vanity

Here’s a touch of modern with a floating vanity from Sollera Cabinets.  Our customer (name kept private, let’s call him Lance) Lance wanted something decently sleek looking to go with the beautiful tile color scheme in the shower, and this espresso colored, Hartford (shaker door) maple cabinet seems to do the job. The cabinets are essentially just shorter base cabinets with full height doors, and we voided the toe kick section.  That’s the easy part.  The important part is recognize now that the cabinet is not sitting on the floor on its toe kick, how will we secure it? We...

Classic Painted Inset Cabinets

White painted cabinets are in, there’s no doubt about that.  Just open any magazine, or look on Houzz.com and I’m sure you’ll find plenty of photos to support that statement.  The inset construction though, to me it adds another layer of sophistication that is uncommon with the average price point vendors. Traditional American cabinets are made with a face frame, and many of the old school furniture makers used to make their doors smaller to fit within the frame of the cabinet.  Therefore, it is called “inset” because the doors are flushed with the face of the...

Beauty of Natural Walnut

Late in 2011, Sollera added walnut as part of their product offerings, and it has been very well received.  Walnut can be very versatile for designs.  Back when we had a showroom, we would receive many compliments on our walnut two tone display.  Walnut on its own though, has its own elegance, and here we did a kitchen in a simple, natural walnut finish across the board. Folks who like walnut tend to enjoy the wide variance of color within the natural wood, hence most of the orders I see are for natural finish (without any stains, just a clear top coat).  In this picture, you can see that...
