Custom Alder Beadboard Cabinets in VenturaOct. 06th

The hills above Ventura is a truly classic place to own a home.  In the 60s and 70s the builders would tuck the kitchen out of the way of the windows and put the dining room in the front of the house overlooking the town of Ventura and the Pacific Ocean.  I say this from experience because my grandparents lived in these hills.  The builders of this beautiful custom home in the Ventura hills, however, rectified that design mistake by putting the kitchen at the front of the house so the view across the kitchen island and from the sink is of the the hills, the town, and the ocean in their glory.  Today's kitchen is the center of the home metaphorically and practically.

 

The cabinets for this job are rustic Alder and stained in Hickory.  The door is a beadboard similar to the Camden but with a bit more detail.  It's not one of our standards, but it is readily available.

Custom Home with Beautiful Alder Distressed Cabinets

The combination of elements are what make the design of this kitchen (and bathrooms) really stand out:

 

  1. Black glazed alder cabinetry with our Ponderosa door and our hand distressing
  2. Solid walnut flooring that closely coordinates with our alder cabinets
  3. Gorgeous creamy green countertops
  4. Dentil Moulding
  5. The elegant addition of glass doors
  6. The stainless steel appliances and matching faucets and hardware don't hurt, of course

Fall 2010 Ventura Home ShowAug. 30th

Once again, the Home Show is coming to Ventura, and Rubottom Cabinets will be there again.  The dates are September 17-19. 

One of the great things about the show for us is that it gives people a chance to actually see and feel our cabinets.  We've created a full-sized kitchen with in-cabinet accessories such as roll-outs, spice racks, soft-close drawers, baskets, and a pantry system that defies description, granite counters (thanks to Celestine) and really fine appliances (thanks to Reid's).  It's advantageous for us to have our customers see and connect with our cabinets in real life, and it's great for our customers to clearly define their expectations for cabinets.

Here's a link to what I originally wrote about our display; its design and inception.  We will have a full-sized kitchen with some an array of built-in accessories such as pantry and spice pull-outs, drawer organizers, wine storage, and full-sized appliances courtesy of Reids.  

 

Check our Rubottom Cabinets for yourself at the Ventura show.
