Take a tour of this designer kitchen built using CliqStudios cabinets and featured on 

When blogger Kate Riley of CentsationalStyle.com bought her house, she knew a remodel was in her future. It started with the removal of the outdated cabinets, wallpaper, fluorescent light and flooring. Next came CliqStudios kitchen cabinets.

Kate chose the style Dayton in a two-tone design of Harbor and White to brighten the space and add a modern twist. Glass insert cabinets were used for displaying dishes. Additionally, she added a pantry to her dining room to create a new storage area. The final space is lighter and more modern.

Because they have plywood sides and a full back, soft close drawers, nickel-plated steel hinges, and smooth enamel paint, the cabinets are excellent quality. 


Any kitchen can be beautiful with vision and quality materials.

Ordering new kitchen cabinets is not like a quick refresh with paint or toss pillows. No, the decisions are so FINAL… so you’ve got to think it through. I wanted light and bright since the kitchen has no windows, so white cabinets with glass inserts were the starting point.”

The new cabinets look much more modern thanks to the elevation drawn up by my CliqStudios kitchen designer...
