You've decided it's time to remodel, and you know you want something fresh and new. So how do you make it a reality? Whether you're looking at just a small section of your house, a full room or your entire home, Shamrock can help you brainstorm and design the upgrade of your dreams. Knowing how to begin can make the process a little easier.
1. Determine your needs and wants. Is this merely a style upgrade, or are you looking for additional space and functionality?
2. Develop a "look book" – many people simply tear out pages that catch their eye in home magazines. You can also print out pictures you find online, or even draw your own design. We've worked with everything from architectural blueprints to rough sketches from novices.
3. Settle on a budget. You need to feel comfortable with what you're investing in, and we can provide custom work at any price level.
4. Call Shamrock. We can either start by coming to your location, or you can visit our showroom. We'll discuss all the items above, and when you're ready to proceed we can work together to create a production schedule.
No two trees are the same, which is why no two woods are the same, and ultimately, why no two cabinets are the same. It all adds to the unique character and charm of your Shamrock product. Have some fun learning about the different types of wood we utilize, and be sure to visit our showroom to get a real feel for what's available.

Since no two trees are identical, wood can be expected to differ in both color and graining. The natural tone of fine woodwork owes most of its charm to that very dynamic. Due to these natural variations of color, density and graining in most species, plus variations in sanding, staining and finishing techniques, the final stain color will vary.
In other words – enjoy your 100% unique Shamrock product, because no one else on earth has one like it!
