The homeowners purchased a new condo that needed renovating before move-in day. TNT Cabinetry reconfigured the space and installed cabinetry, countertops, backsplash, lighting, and flooring.

The design team showed the homeowners Cherry Dusk to complement the Heron Plume painted finish and the homeowners fell in love with it!

The cabinet colors were a perfect complement to their high-end quartzite countertops and marble backsplash.

The homeowners wanted a contemporary look while still keeping the classic elements that an inset cabinet offers and they were thrilled with the final outcome!

Everyone is wanting white kitchens today and in Naples, Florida it's understandable that the interiors stay light, bright, and airy ... being only 8 minutes from the beach. But, the design team loved how mixing some warmer wood tones in very specific areas can really change the feel without compromising the bright space.

The homeowners came highly recommended by another client. This client and the design team had completed a high-end remodeling project using Showplace Cabinetry; therefore, the current homeowners knew that they wanted to use the same cabinet line.

Naples is a very affluent area and sometimes working with customers who have "been around the block" a few times in the remodeling arena can be challenging. But the homeowners were dynamite! They were like old friends who you've known forever. They asked for help and, ultimately, allowed the design team to guide them. Since the design team tries to make suggestions, without being pushy, they ended up working very well together! What's the Golden Rule again? "Treat others the way you want to be treated". And when that's done ... everyone comes out happy in the end!


This is a beautiful kitchen. I enjoy how you framed the darker range cabinetry.

You have accomplished airy and contemporary. Everything flows well.

Double islands always provide great storage and prep space.

This kitchen needed the two-toned look. Beautiful job. Also, the darker tones in the countertops tie it all together! Great job.

I like the mixture of colors and textures here. The wood stained cabinets, painted cabinets, and quartzite countertop are rich and warm.

Love the "two tone" look.

The wood surround at the cooktop is a great design element.

The colors and finishes are beautiful.

Pleasantly surprised - very sleek and modern. Love the dark wood contrast focal point. Looks great.

Design elements are spot on. Good attention to detail by creating, visually, a space that is sleek and modern.

Good landing zones, good prep space.

The details are all very well put together here. Storage space is maxed out while keeping an open floor plan great for entertaining.
