Since opening its doors in 2007, Golden Cabinets has gained a reputation for offering quality, affordable cabinetry to Hawaii’s consumers. Owner Wayne Cao noticed how expensive it had become to purchase cabinets in Hawaii and sought to bring more affordable options to residents looking to either build from scratch or remodel existing spaces.

“When we transform a client’s outdated kitchen into a new, more functional kitchen, it is most satisfying seeing their face and hearing how much their whole family enjoys this new element in their home,” Cao says.


Golden Cabinets offers a wide variety of wood selections when it comes to designing cabinetry. The Luxurious Cherry offers consumers a fine-grain wood with a smooth texture and satiny feel. The option closely resembles the coveted Koa wood appearance, and is usually finished with a medium or dark stain to bring out the wood’s mahogany-red tones. Cherry is integral to defining the Shaker, Mission and country-style cabinets offered at Golden Cabinets.

Other styles of Cherry wood offered at Golden Cabinets include the Royal Cherry — the company’s top-of-the-line wood option — as well as Golden Cherry, which offers consumers a lighter tone of wood with the same strength as its darker alternatives.

Honey Maple is another popular choice among buyers looking for a hard wood (this hard maple is also used in making hardwood floors and bowling alley lanes) that can provide the perfect combination of durability and beauty. Design consultant LauraJon “LJ” Cornel suggests utilizing White Oak as a way to brighten a room, as the wood’s white stain and lacquered finish last longer than paint, which tends to peel off at a faster rate.


Golden Cabinets also offers a wide range of cabinetry options, including 30and 40-inch wall cabinets as well as the option of including glass panels as an added artistic element. Special orders are welcomed, and Cornel says that some other possibilities include modifying office areas, adding closets or sprucing up a garage or lanai with various cabinets and storage elements.

“It feels great when you can sell someone all-plywood construction cabinets with Cherry wood doors, beautiful cabinetry, for an extremely unbelievable price,” says Cornel when describing Golden Cabinets’ ability to offer quality products and service at affordable prices. “They can upgrade their kitchen and make it nice — they don’t have to live with particleboard cabinets that are falling apart. We can help somebody do the projects that they may otherwise not be able to afford.”

According to Cao, Golden Cabinets plans on offering more door styles, wood species and cabinetry selections in the near future. “We truly appreciate each and every one of our clients who (has) given Golden Cabinets the opportunity to fulfill their cabinetry needs,” he says.
