A Family Commitment That Spans Across Generations Celebrating 55 Years

Wellborn Cabinet, Inc. is celebrating 55 years since Paul Wellborn first opened the doors to Wellborn Cabinet Shop in Ashland, AL in 1961.  The company started in a 3,200 square foot building that Paul and his wife, Betty, eventually expanded into a 1.8 million square foot vertically integrated manufacturing plant.  The Wellborn family expanded right along with the business with 5 children who now all hold various management positions within the company.  The oldest, Tammy, is manager over the Credit Department, next in line is Angela who is Director of Marketing & Advertising, then John who is the Customer Relations Manager, followed by Stephen who is the Director of Product & Research Development, ending with the youngest, Jason, who is the Display Manager.  Now, Mr. Paul has another generation of the Wellborn family beginning their professional career with 3 of his 15 grandchildren working full time in various positions at the Ashland plant.

For years our company has remained true to our commitments to quality, environmental stewardship, and devotion to our customers. With expansion in the works and applications welcomed, our company has decided to add a new edition to our Ashland location, coming in 2017, in the form of our new frameless line, Aspire Cabinetry. We will have an entire new line of paints, stains and door styles to choose from. Without all of the care and love from our employees, we would not have been able to get where we are today, and the Wellborn Family is so thankful.

On-Trend Transformations

 

Although they’re often the smallest rooms in the house, they’re also among the most essential and most commonly remodeled spaces. When you approach design with both function and style in mind, you can elevate your bathroom to be much more than an afterthought.

While the bathroom is a space where function matters greatly, that’s no reason to skip adding personal touches to the space. From fixtures and decor that reflect your personality to accessories and features that fit your lifestyle, you can incorporate details that make your bathroom as much about you as the rest of your home.

The focal point of many bathrooms is the cabinetry, and the array of products available today make it possible to create nearly any look you can imagine. With an option such as Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s Elegant Bath Collection, the possibilities are endless. The extensive collection of designer vanity suites, basic vanities and accessories fits a broad range of design aesthetics with an array of popular door styles and finishes.

If a remodel is in your plans, consider these in-the-now design trends to help create a bathroom retreat that blends your individual style with everyday luxury.

Contemporary style

Whether it’s a desire to capture the classic Zen spa style at home or simply a growing penchant for modern interiors, the bathroom is no exception for those who gravitate toward contemporary design. Cabinetry featuring clean styles, sleek hardware and full overlay doors lend well to a contemporary look. Add complementary lighting and fixtures, and keep accessories and decor simple and clutter-free to round out the look.

Painted cabinetry

Many a bathroom has fallen victim to monochromatic monotony. Fortunately, these days more bathrooms are getting a fresh look filled with colorful expression. If you’ve considered the cabinetry off-limits before, now is the time to brighten up your bathroom and make a statement with boldly hued woodwork. For a more subtle look, glazed richly toned stains may be the answer. Take another step toward this color-friendly style with neutral painted finishes and paints with glazes. Or go all-in with fully custom painted cabinetry, with Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s ColorInspire program, that draws from the broad selection of shades from the extensive paint programs of well-known brands such as Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore and Valspar.

Floating vanities

In keeping with the trend toward modern motifs, floating vanities provide a clean, minimalistic appearance in a contemporary design. Particularly in a smaller room, this open, airy look is a stylish alternative to the pedestal sink as it lends an illusion of space while bringing expanded flooring into view. Paired with the proper cabinetry and color scheme, the floating vanity can work equally well in a transitional design.

Storage solutions

From pull-outs, tilt-ups and roll-outs to hidden outlets, simplified storage is in big demand, according to the National Kitchen & Bath Association’s 2016 Design Trends Report. Keeping clutter off the counter is easier than ever with clever storage solutions such as Wellborn Cabinet Inc.’s accessory base pullouts or toe kick drawers that create an extra place to stow your bath essentials in the space below the cabinet. Another solution to a common problem, the U-shaped sliding shelf wraps around the sink plumbing to hold towels, soaps and hair accessories, providing easy access to stored items while maximizing storage space inside your vanity.

Choose Your Door Design

The type of door overlay you choose for your bathroom cabinetry can make a big difference in the overall look of the room. Determine which door style fits best with your design:

Full overlay doors span over the frame and have a concealed hinge for a clean look.

Traditional overlay doors reveal some of the frame for a classic design.

Inset doors are placed inside the cabinet frame. Some brands, such as Wellborn Cabinet, Inc., offer options like beaded or non-beaded face frames.

Pacific Northwest CabinetryMilwaukie, Oregon 

This is the 3rd project we were asked to do for this couple. We had helped them with their kitchen – and
now their pantry was in dire need of help. It had become a catch all for various items that didn’t quite have
a place in the main kitchen and consequently had become almost useless. We were tasked with cleaning out
and organizing the space, adding storage and function to this underutilized space

before

Problems/Challenges: 
-Very cluttered, everything was shoved into place and very visible
-They wanted this to be an area that could house a microwave and second oven for overflow cooking during
the holidays
-Wanted an area to house his espresso maker and accoutrement since it didn’t fit in the kitchen
-Wanted a sink for quick access to water and an extra place to clean up
-Wanted a space for bottle storage up and out of the way
-Lacked any kind of countertop space at all so no real work could be done in the space
-Didn’t want it to look too dark or heavy
-Their existing door swung into the pantry, making it hard to maneuver inside

after

Solutions:
-Added enclosed cabinet storage with Wellborn’s Prairie Maple Painted in the Divinity finish. Giving the
pantry a bright feel overall
-Bookcases that sit on the countertop provide open storage for a tight space. Clear mason jars provide an
attractive and functional way to store them
-A sink was added at the end of the pantry under the window, right next to the espresso and coffee makers
-An unused chimney was removed and recessed in the space we installed a new convection microwave and
second oven. Giving them plenty of extra cook space and getting it out of the way and off the countertop
-A shelf was added running along the kitchen wall to house their bottle storage where it won’t take up space
used by everyday items
-Added granite that matched their kitchen for a cohesive look
-Changed the door to a pocket door and added glass for a more open look and more light
