This blog entry features a built-in cabinetry project we just completed awhile back for a Fairfax, VA homeowner. These custom bookcases and cabinetry were designed, fabricated, and installed by Mitre Contracting, Inc.
Some of the features of these painted built-ins include:
- Solid 3/4" maple veneer plywood casework
- Solid poplar wood facings (stiles & rails)
- Recessed paneled sides throughout
- Recessed paneled doors, overlay design, all maple construction
- Adjustable shelves throughout with 1.5" beaded front edgings
- File drawers of 5/8" dovetailed finished maple on 200lb. tracks
- Straight valances and plain stiles, both with cabinet beading details
- Concealed "Blum" brand clip on adjustable hinges
These built-ins and bookcases were hand painted after the installation by R.K.M. Painting Company.
The built-in counter tops are made from 3/4" maple veneer plywood with 1.5" wood edgings with a bead profile. The built-in base cabinetry storage units are a flush toekick design wrapped with a baseboard that matches the baseboard in the home. See the picture below for a close up view of the built-in cabinetry base unit's recessed paneled sides.
This next picture shows the custom built-in file drawers, showing the dovetailed construction and the 200 lbs full extension slides. These will hold either legal or letter sized files in a lateral position. The drawer boxes are constructed from a solid 5/8" maple and come with a nice lacquered finish. They come with matching all maple recessed panel drawer fronts.
This next picture shows a close up view of the custom built-in cabinetry base unit's interior. This base cabinet comes with one full depth adjustable shelf and overlay solid maple recessed panel doors. These base unit cabinets can also come with inset style doors, raised panels, arched panels...etc. if desired.
The interiors get a couple coats of a clear polyurethane finish. The doors also come with "Blum" brand euro style hinges that clip on style and are fully adjustable.
The next two pictures below show close up views of the upper bookcase shelving units. Here you can see the built-in cabinetry's recessed panel sides, adjustable shelves, plain stiles with cabinet beading, the straight valances and crown moulding at the ceiling.
I originally designed these built-in cabinets with a shelving unit over the seating desk area, but this homeowner wanted to hang some artwork and deleted the middle section of shelves from the original design.
This next picture shows the units right after the installation before they have been painted.
The full height bookcase built-in units feature all adjustable shelves, straight valances, plain stiles, and a flush toe kick design. The bookcases are trimmed out in baseboard and crown moulding that match the homes mouldings.
