#1. High-End Finishes & Materials

We recognize that the heart and soul of any cabinetry design lies in the choice of finishes and design materials. These not only accentuate the look and feel of your space but serve as a true reflection of your taste and style.  

From stainless steel and acrylic to high gloss painted cabinetry, we can make your space shine!

Remember, a great cabinetry design is only as good as its finishes and the quality of materials used. Here at C & C Cabinets, top-of-the-line finishes and materials aren't just options—they're the standard.

If you are someone who adores color, then you're in the right place. Color is our second language—we absolutely adore it! Whether it's a bold, striking tone or a subtler, softer hue, we're enthusiastic about adding a contemporary touch to your home. Bring us your color inspiration or let us suggest a palette that pops at a consultation.

#2. Flat Panel Doors

Flat panel, European style doors are popular due to their sleek and minimalist aesthetic. These doors feature a simple, flat surface without any raised or recessed details, creating a clean and modern look. This style is especially favored in custom kitchens and bathrooms where a clean, streamlined design is desired.  

Using contrasting materials such as wood or metal accents creates a striking visual effect that adds depth and interest to the overall design. The best part? The simplicity of flat panel doors allows for customization through various finishes and colors, making them a very versatile option that can blend styles.

#3. Minimalist Hardware

Minimalist hardware is more than just a design trend; it adds a modern touch to your cabinets that won’t overwhelm your space. Think less is more, as the focus here is on simplicity and clean lines.  

Minimalist hardware is the perfect way to give your custom cabinets a luxurious feel while maintaining a sleek look.

The beauty of minimalist hardware lies in subtly enhancing the appeal of your cabinetry, a secret ingredient that blends into the background until needed. Now, isn't that luxury redefined?

Secrets from the Shop: Contemporary cabinetry doesn’t even need hardware - sometimes the chicest option is to have modern handholds, cutouts, or push to open doors so you have a clean & stunning style throughout your residence.

#3. Ambient Lighting

Ambient LED lights within cabinetry can create a warm and inviting atmosphere that enhances the overall appeal of the space. These subtle lights not only highlight the beauty of the cabinetry itself but also illuminate the surrounding area, making it easier to navigate and access items stored inside.

One innovative way ambient lighting is utilized in contemporary cabinetry is through motion sensor technology. This cutting-edge feature allows lights to automatically turn on when the cabinet doors are opened, providing convenient visibility without the need for manual switches.  

You can also integrate color-changing LEDs to your toe kicks and under open shelving. These luxe lights have gained popularity in recent years, offering homeowners the flexibility to adjust the ambiance according to their mood while amplifying design.
