With 2018 proving to be the year of “personalization,” home owners are turning to placing lights beneath their cabinets for more atmosphere. If you decide to go that route, here are a few things to keep in mind to get the best effect without creating problems. LEDs are the best option for under-cabinet lighting for a number of reasons. They produce the least amount of heat, provide good lighting for activities and come in a variety of colors. Traditionally more expensive, costs have come down considerably recently. This, along with their long life makes LEDs a good choice for the long term. Fluorescent lights are almost as energy efficient as LEDs but they do produce more heat. Another option is Xenon lights that emit some heat but they can be dimmed to create an attractive, warm glow. Halogen lights are still possible but the heat they throw off can affect food or drinks stored above them. When selecting lights to go under your cabinets, determine what kind of effect you want but keep in mind what you plan to store in each of those...
Recently, “less is better” has taken interior design by storm. As a simple, streamlined style it creates a sense of order and calm, especially to hard-working rooms like kitchens. It’s also adaptable to a wide range of decorative styles when it comes to cabinetry. Usually shaker cabinets come to mind and the materials you choose can range from industrial chic to mid-century modern. Currently one of the strongest trends is to work with luxury woods and finishes. Whichever way you go, complete your kitchen by selecting high quality appliances, lighting and hardware. The bare-bones look of minimalism shines a spotlight on every component of the space. That’s why it’s critical to make sure each element can withstand the scrutiny. It may require more thought and planning than other decorative styles and we’re here to help! Renovation projects offer the best opportunity to create a minimalist design that reveals the intrinsic beauty of spaces, materials and furnishing, by stripping away unessential elements. We design kitchens that function best while preserving the cool and serene atmosphere that people desire these days. ...

Thank you for your patience with us. Most of all thank you for the sharing of your experience and design knowledge. I know that centering the sink is great! Not buying the silverware insert saved us money.
I was very impressed with the customer service with Chris Boulton with Cornerstone Cabinets. He went above and beyond to help me even with a small request I had.
Our new counters and cabinets are gorgeous! They came up with an awesome layout that fit our needs and delivered on every promise. If you are doing a kitchen remodel I highly recommend you give Mark a call.
We had a relatively small job - replacing toe kicks in the bathroom. Oak Craft Cabinets, who supplied the cabinets, recommended Cornerstone, who is one of their dealers. Chris [owner] agreed to do it despite its small size. Several issues cropped up pre-installation which were successfully resolved. The installer, Tim, did a beautiful job and solved some major unforeseen installation issues. The price was very fair. I recommend Cornerstone without reservation.
Cornerstone Cabinets came to my home in Scottsdale and performed a full kitchen remodel. This included a full kitchen cabinet makeover, along with brand new Marlam granite countertops. I was incredibly impressed with their cleanliness and friendly crew. I would highly recommend Cornerstone Cabinets to anyone in Scottsdale looking for a kitchen remodel in the future.
I have known Chris and used his company multiple times over the past decade. He most recently installed custom Oakcraft cabinets in my Gilbert, AZ home and did an excellent job. I absolutely love my new kitchen remodel! His crew was super friendly, courteous, and worked cleanly and efficiently! Anyone looking for a bathroom remodel or a kitchen remodel in Phoenix AZ should use Cornerstone Cabinets, you will LOVE them, I promise!
As a General Contractor Cornerstone Cabinets has gone above and beyond to make my customers happy. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They truly do stand behind their product. They have always been a pleasure to work with. Jim - HANbuilt Construction.
