Woodstock, GA (PressExposure) October 23, 2008 -- Custom Kitchens and Appliances (CKA), located right on the Cobb and Cherokee county border in Georgia, announced it is teaming with Blackstone Cabinetry to bring nationally known and respected kitchen cabinets to North Georgia. Blackstone Cabinetry specializes in the custom construction of full-access European style cabinetry.
The advantages of this frameless style of construction are both aesthetic and functional, and while it has been the standard in Europe for years, it is increasingly gaining popularity throughout the United States. The most distinguishing feature is the lack of face frame with the doors applied directly to the cabinet case, allowing complete unobstructed access to the cabinet interior.
The Blackstone brand offers two levels of value. The Blackstone Custom offers a wide range of choices, with customized and personalized styling options. The Blackstone Collection combines affordability with style.
CKA has a large kitchen showroom and meeting place where consumers, builders and designers experience the ability to really get a good feel for appliances, cabinets, countertops (granite, quartz, etc.) and the other elements of their vision of their kitchen.
The showroom contains a variety of kitchen vignettes outfitted with the latest in high performance appliances. The room also contains many large granite meeting tables where plans are created, reviewed and executed. Trained professionals are onsite to ensure that the patrons' questions are answered and needs are met.
Ken Lemal, President of CKA, was asked "Why Blackstone?" Lemal explained "To create cabinetry that is truly your own, you need choices. You need flexibility to express your personal tastes, and to fit your lifestyle. The Blackstone Collection line gives our customers the choices of species, finish, and features that give this flexibility."
"If you want a high-quality custom look that won't break the bank, semi-custom cabinets like those offered by Blackstone Cabinetry may be the best way to go. They aren't quite custom, but many modifications in sizes are available, so they can certainly come close."
Cabinets are available in cherry, hickory, maple, oak, rustic cherry and rustic hickory woods. There are dozens of door styles and finishes available to create everything from an old world to modern look.
Distinguishing features include:
â¢ More usable space inside the cabinets â¢ Larger drawers and roll-out shelves â¢ Hidden hinges and hardware â¢ Increased storage space in less room â¢ Easy to clean and maintain
With frameless cabinetry, no face frames are exposed on the cabinet, and full overlay doors on full access cabinets hinge to the inside and cover the front of the case, exposing only a small reveal. Designers often prefer a frameless look because it accentuates the key aspect and focal point of the cabinet: the door style and finish.
The absence of a face frame impeding access to the cabinet creates significantly more usable storage space inside a frameless cabinet (sometimes as much as 10% more) when compared to a same-sized framed construction.
Installation of frameless cabinetry is also a simpler process because ends and sides of cabinets are flush, allowing positioning of doors to a more exacting alignment.
"At CKA, we celebrate the good life by offering these fine cabinets to customers in North Georgia who want superior products. Our customers demand performance, reliability and versatility." concludes Lemal.
