Cabinets Bay Area stands at the center of sustainability, technology, and style. We provide our clients with unique, modern, and custom designs to suit their specific needs.

Although cabinet-making is an old profession, we have been taking big steps to revolutionize it in order to make it a more sustainable and earth-friendly process.  We continue to use well-known hardwoods like Maple, Cherry, and Birch.  HEMA Design Center has been working with lumber companies in the Bay Area that seek to harvest wood from sustainable forests and forests approved by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

However, Cabinets Bat Area is committed to sustainability. We place design, style and quality on the same level as social and environmental matters. Thus, we believe that BAMBOO is the wood of the future.  Not only is BAMBOO a renewable resource, but it is also natural and absolutely beautiful.  We are designers as well as members of the green community that hope to contribute to the movement to create a more ecologically sound economy.

Cabinets Bay Area will work with our clients individually to create a look and feel that exemplifies your taste and aesthetic. With over thirty years of experience in the cabinetry business in the Bay Area, the cabinet-makers at HEMA Design Center want to fulfil your dreams of a custom kitchen that is both at the peak of sophistication and style but also completely ecologically sustainable.


All of our cabinets are made from natural, sustainable, nontoxic materials.

Why Bamboo?

The benefits of bamboo are many.  From a forestry standpoint, bamboo can be grown with no added fertilizers, pesticides or irrigation and can retain up to 70% more carbon per year than a hardwood forest. For instance, Moso bamboo, a temperate species of giant timber bamboo, has an optimal five-year growth cycle and is selectively harvested by hand, eliminating heavy equipment that can impact habitat. Bamboo can be harvested without the need to replant, as it naturally regenerates annually. Due to a rhizome root structure, bamboo has the ability to hold loose soil in place, preventing erosion. Bamboo is a rapidly renewable, readily available, and incredibly sustainable alternative source of material for cabinet making and refacing.  From its humble origins as an inexpensive raw material for building or fabrication of simple structures, furniture, tools, baskets, artistic craft and food source, bamboo now finds itself used for flooring, plywood, veneers, bicycles, fabrics and additives for both food and cosmetics. This has created new jobs in forestry, manufacturing, innovation and design, science and technology.  Bringing bamboo into the vanguard of cabinetry will place kitchen design at the forefront of ecological sustainability and sophistication.
