Modern Cleaf & Aluminum Cabinets In Del Mar

Custom Approach Overcomes Challenges of Renovated Space – Provides Unique, Modern Look

When these homeowners decided to renovate, they wanted to update cabinets and storage units to fit the unique angles of their existing kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room areas. Their goal was to gain greater accessibility, improve layout, and better use the space.

While the clients wanted the new cabinetry to provide a cohesive look throughout the home, they also wanted to make each respective space distinctive.

Utilizing Cleaf (a textured melamine product), we were able to achieve the kinds of unique colors and textures that would be difficult to replicate with real wood. We also opted for painted white cabinets to compliment the dark accents of the Cleaf material.

In some areas the customer wanted no handles, so we constructed the cabinets with aluminum channels, which created subtle, handle-free pulls for cabinet doors and drawers.

The clients also wanted their pantry area to look like cabinetry, so we built a pantry door to match the refrigerator, as well as custom-fitted panels for each appliance. The result was the appearance of a seamless wall of cabinets, behind which was the refrigerator, other appliances, and a walk-in pantry.
