At Cabinets To Go, we love to pay homage to the past. Lovers of more elegant times will find the charm of this kitchen irresistible. Accessorize Bordeaux shaker cabinets with retro pieces like an antique knob or a pearly white tile backsplash, to bring the ‘30s, ‘40s, and ‘50s straight into your home.
Transport yourself to another time through this two tone kitchen. Combine the swanky atmosphere of a 1940s cocktail lounge with the squeaky-clean, all-American retro kitchen.
We know the importance of the balance between aesthetic and function. The kitchen is the liveliest room in the home and the hub for entertaining. The layout of this two tone kitchen is perfect for entertaining. A large wrap-around counter with bar stools near the oven means your guests can keep you company while you prepare those delicious home cooked meals they’ve come to enjoy.

This kitchen is all about contradictions. Embrace the spirit of the 1940s and 1950s all-American with a design that combines bright and clean with dark and sultry. The only thing missing is a freshly baked apple pie.
