Project Overview

This new build cottage home is located in Rapid City, Michigan, and our client wanted cabinetry for their kitchen, laundry room, and bathrooms. We designed Shaker-style maple cabinets finished with Sherwin Williams Illusive Green paint and solid gold handles. The end result was cool-toned cabinets, which complemented the cottage-style exterior and interior.

Project Features

Included in this project was a Knotty Walnut island designed with flush/inset mount doors and drawers (Shaker-style finished ends).

The coffee/micro station included metal mesh and pocket doors (first picture below).

The Range Hood (3rd picture below) was created from stained Knotty Walnut to match the island.

Other features included spice and utensil pullouts, a paneled fridge, a Knotty Walnut banquette/bench, nickel gap panel island back, a farm sink, and a built-in knotty walnut liquor cabinet.

Project Overview

Located in Fremont, Michigan, our client needed a kitchen and bathroom cabinet remodel. We used maple wood to design Shaker-style cabinets and doors for this project. The simplicity and brightness of these hand-painted white cabinets added a classic touch to each room.

In the end, the ceiling-height cabinets brightened the kitchen, making it appear more open while also adding more space for a coffee bar, storage, and food prep.

Project Features

This cabinet project included partial-overlay Shaker-style doors and drawers, fitted with black handles to contrast the white painted finish.

Other features were a built-in wall oven, cabinets above the fridge, and glass doors to accent the minimalistic design.

The extra large pantry incorporates a coffee bar, while the island adds a cooktop, a spice rack, and a double 35-quart recycle/trash drawer.

Adding the finishing touch to your kitchen and bathroom cabinets means finding the right accent pieces.

And finding the right accent pieces means investing in cabinet hardware you can trust.

At Maple Valley Cabinets, we provide the cabinet hardware options you need to complete your home (and impress your guests).

Designed for your kitchen, bath, laundry room, and beyond, let’s discuss the advantages that Rev-A-Shelf, Richelieu, and Berenson cabinet hardware bring to your home.

Rev-A-Shelf Cabinet Accessories

Rev-A-Shelf combines the best of cabinetry and accessories.

They supply Blind Corner Accessories, Base Cabinet Accessories, and Lazy Susans.

Plus, in each category, Rev-A-Shelf’s products are made to optimize your space.

Rev-A-Shelf Blind Corner Accessories

For instance, within Blind Corner Accessories, you can find Optimizers and Half Moon shelves.

These two accessories add more shelving space to your cabinet, while remaining discreet.

Cabinet optimizers come in two-tiered setups, which give easy access to hard-to-reach corners.

Pots, pans, containers, or other kitchenware slide out with these mounted wire or solid-bottom shelves.

Think chrome or stainless floating shelves that you can move in and out of your cabinets.

Half Moon cabinet shelving takes up less space than optimizers, but still holds mixers, canned goods, ceramics, containers, spices, and more.

These shelves hold true to their name, styled like a circle cut in half.

Color options include white or almond polymer, maple and different sizes fit anywhere from 42” to 45” corner cabinets.

Rev-A-Shelf Base Cabinet Accessories

With Rev-A-Shelf, Base Cabinet Accessories include anything from Cookware Organizers to Mixer Lifts.

A quick rundown of all cabinet Base Accessories looks like:

If you need better cabinet storage options, Base Cabinet Accessories are the way to go.

Introducing organized pots and pans, baking sheets, utensils, and other cookware for good!

Style options include Maple, Walnut, Chrome, and Steel in Gray or Orion Gray.

All accessories can fit both face frame and full access cabinets.

Plus, Rev-a-Shelf accessories can mount to cabinet floors, doors, side walls, floor and side walls, and even between cabinets.

Choose from spice drawers, trash bag holders, swing out pantries, container organizers, and countless other options for your cabinets!

Rev-A-Shelf Lazy Susans

Despite the name, Lazy Susans are quite industrious.

Rev-A-Shelf offers five variations for all your cabinet storage needs—D-Shape, Pie Shape, Full Circle, Half Moon, and Kidney Shaped shelves.

The names are self-explanatory, and these swivel shelves come in white and almond polymer, Maple, Chrome, and Gray or Orion Gray Steel.

Once again, these Lazy Susan cabinet shelves provide flexible storage options for food items, pots and pans, spices, and so much more.

Richelieu Hardware

Here’s another “R” manufacturer—Richelieu!

But unlike Rev-A-Shelf, Richelieu provides handles and slides for kitchen or bathroom doors and drawers.

Richelieu Knobs and Pulls

Modern, traditional, transitional, eclectic, and functional are all words that describe cabinet hardware styles Richelieu can bring to your home.

Richelieu cabinet knobs and pulls come in eight color groups:

Browse through a variety of cabinet handles to find the ones that fit your style.

Richelieu Drawer Slides

Slides from Richelieu fit under, on the side, or the middle of cabinet drawers.

Concealed Slides are hidden from sight and can come with a soft-closing feature.

Ball Bearing Slides are centered on the sides of the drawer and also have optional soft-close.

Standard slides fit the bottom corners of a drawer, and like Ball Bearing Slides, are visible on either side.

Specialty Slides work as Flipper Door Slides or for specific cabinet accessories like cutting boards, pantries, keyboard drawers, and more.

Berenson Handles and Knobs

Unlike Rev-A-Shelf or Richelieu, Berenson focuses completely on handles and knobs.

Driven by the latest styles, Berenson's cabinet hardware provides what consumers are looking for currently.

Whether you’re into traditional or contemporary cabinet designs, Berenson has it all.

Berenson’s three main lines are Advantage Plus by Berenson, Berenson Hardware, and R. Christensen by Berenson.

Advantage Plus by Berenson

Advantage Plus lets you choose between sharp or smooth contemporary cabinet handles. Or pick Traditional Advantage pulls to add more character to your cabinets or drawers.

Berenson Hardware

Berenson Hardware offers another four lines—Classic Comfort, Uptown Appeal, Timeless Charm, and Artisan Inspired cabinet handles.

Classic Comfort brings transitional style, like oil rubbed bronze and other classic finishes to cabinets.

Uptown Appeal gives cabinets a minimalistic, straightforward look. Handle coatings include brushed nickel, matte black, brushed gold, and more.

Timeless Charm promises farmhouse and other traditional cabinet trends that have been loved throughout the centuries.

Artisan Inspired cabinet hardware lives up to its name. These handles and knobs include etching or geometric lines plus smooth or weathered finishes.

R. Christensen by Berenson

R. Christensen by Berenson zooms in on an Art Tech Series.

Art Tech splits into 16 smaller lines, including Fluid and Mini to name two.

Fluid holds to its name and boasts smooth cabinet and drawer handles that truly look like they’re flowing.

The Mini Collection incorporates small round or square cabinet knobs in matte black, charcoal gray, soft gold, honey gold, polished chrome, and brushed nickel finishes.

Other collections involve Wave, Spiral, Square, and other artsy options.

At Maple Valley Cabinets, we use long-lasting, high-quality products.

And our finishes are no exception.

Italian-made, Sirca polyurethane is formaldehyde-free plus chemical and water-resistant.

We use clear, pigmented, and acrylic Sirca finishes—mixed and applied by hand.

Read on as we cover why Sirca coatings are our first choice for your cabinetry and furnishings.

1. Durability

Not only are Sirca coatings formaldehyde-free, but they’re also durable.

Sirca holds to our heirloom furniture policy, meaning their polyurethane and paints will protect your furnishings for more than a lifetime.

Since Sirca’s paints and polyurethane are oil-based—also called solvent-based—they’re liquid-resistant.

Plus, with zero formaldehyde, Sirca polyurethane emits a low odor compared to most conversion varnish blends.

Providing more coverage and less smell, Sirca coatings hold up to chemicals and water.

2. Flexibility

We use Sirca finishes for all our cabinetry and furnishings.

But no worries. One brand doesn’t limit your options.

You can keep long-lasting Sirca quality plus color-match your cabinets with current furnishings.

Our finish company matches countless color palettes from Sherwin-Williams or Benjamin Moore—if you provide a paint color and code.

Although we mainly use a satin finish, all our paints and polyurethane come in 10, 20, 30, and 40-sheen options.

This means you don’t have to compromise on color or shine for our coatings.

Aside from our paint options, we use a sheet of clear 2k polyurethane on top of stain or as a clear coat.

Similarly, we use clear 2k acrylic polyurethane for a clear finish. But unlike our clear polyurethane, the clear acrylic polyurethane doesn’t yellow with age.

Both clear and acrylic finishes add a layer of protection while beautifully displaying your cabinets’ wood grain.

On the other hand, our paint provides solid-colored coverage.

Whether you want the wood grain exposed or hidden, with Sirca’s options, we’ve got you covered.

3. Hand-mixed. Hand-applied

For each order of Sirca polyurethane, we mix in Sirca hardener to get the perfect coating for your cabinetry.

Our paint coatings completely hide wood grain and create a smooth finish.

We use maple wood for all painted furnishings, applying two layers of primer first, then one topcoat.

To preserve the natural feel and look of wood cabinets, we use one coat of sealer, then one topcoat for acrylic and clear polyurethane.

Every layer of sealer, primer, topcoat, and polyurethane is sprayed on by hand.

Layers dry for up to 45 minutes before applying another coat to ensure a polished result.

Hand-mixed and hand-applied, Sirca blends help retain the beauty of our handmade furnishings for years to come.

See the Sirca-difference up close!

Now that you understand the Sirca-difference, don’t wait to invest in cabinets and furnishings that shine.

Hand-applied, flexible, and durable, we stand behind our Sirca coatings. And when you receive that timeless finish, we know you will too.
