Unveiling Summer's Best and Brightest!

Traditional, craftsman, contemporary... Valley Cabinet is known for one-of-a-kind, custom cabinetry creations. If you're looking for inspiration, start by browsing our designer's top selection of most popular door styles! Then work with our experts to tailor your own designs by selecting wood grain, paint, stain or other characteristics to match you and your home's unique style.



A Marriage of Modern and Vintage Design

Something that looks old, but is actually new... there's nothing borrowed and it's enhanced with blue! Completing this country-style kitchen was like the perfect wedding-careful planning and commitment resulted in beauty and enjoyment that will last a lifetime. Showcasing a union of modern design and antique inspiration, these custom cabinets feature mitered doors and a special finish achieved by staining, painting over the stain, then rubbing the edges for a worn appearance and finally glazing. Loaded with creative enhancements, the room also features multiple rollouts for easy storage and retrieval, glass-door display cases and a mantel-style hidden stove hood.

Create Your Ultimate Cottage Kitchen

Whether you're looking to remodel an existing cottage or build your dream vacation abode, these fresh and functional design tips can help you create the ideal kitchen for long days of summer fun.

  • Function first - Time spent at your vacation home should be all about relaxation and fun. It's important to build as many convenience features into your kitchen as possible making meal prep and daily activities organized and carefree.
  • Begin light and bright - Using light colors-including whites, neutrals or pastels-for the foundation of your kitchen (cabinets, walls, floors) can instantly give the room an open, airy feel.
  • Add vintage flare - A porcelain farm sink, Edison-inspired light fixtures, and antique brass hardware can bring quaint country charm to even the finest upscale vacation home.
  • Mother nature can help - Use the natural beauty of the outdoors such as fresh cut flowers, sea shells, birch bark and well-worn woods to organically enhance décor with vibrant colors and textures.
