Barker Modern is a spin off of Barker Cabinets (barkercabinets.com). Using a similar construction method, but focusing on a modern look for the doors and drawer fronts allows us to offer a quick lead time, unrivaled modern style, and a huge amount of customizations that add substantial value to your project. Barker Cabinets has been building cabinets since 1978 and has focused on high end custom cabinetry until the recession in 2008, when business became slow and we had to adapt...
During the early 2000s, we had been developing a frame-less construction method to use to supply our cabinets in Hawaii. Importing into Hawaii - as we all can imagine - was difficult, as shipping large containers was cost prohibitive. Research ensued to create a cabinet product that could be shipped "flat packed", thus eliminating the full container charge associated with shipping to Hawaii. We had to do this, yet still offer the quality that multi million dollar, high end homes in Lanai, Maui, Hawaii, and Kauai were demanding. Working closely with our Italian machinery experts, American material suppliers, and Austrian hardware suppliers, we were able to develop an award winning full overlay, ready to assemble cabinet that has become the benchmark standard for high end custom cabinets in today's marketplace.
The recession forced us to become different in order to stand out in today's marketplace. All of Barker Cabinet's products represent a constant drive toward perfection in a constantly changing world. Barker Modern is here to provide the next step in this perpetual evolution.
Overall, we are able offer fully custom sizes, the best quality materials, the highest grade finishes, the finest dovetailed drawer boxes, extreme customization of sizes (to reduce fillers and maximize storage space), and all of this for a fraction of the price of full custom cabinets. Enjoy tried and true construction, and enduring quality that will last for decades.
