Custom Cabinets Deliver Endless Options
Honey Beech? Maple? Dark Cherry? Expresso? White Oak? Ready-made? Custom? Solid wood face frames and doors or engineered MDF flat panel-style doors and frames? Dove-tailed drawers, soft-closing hardware…a seemingly infinite amount of details and decisions to think about when selecting your kitchen cabinets or bathroom cabinets.
And yet this undertaking doesn’t scare away the savvy homeowner because of all the good reasons to put yourself through a kitchen remodel. When planning renovations to your home there’s not much better to bring up your property value than a custom kitchen. It’s hard to argue with that. Whatever your budget, whatever your style, kitchen remodeling will improve your life since the kitchen has traditionally been considered the Heart-of-the-Home. If you upgrade your old kitchen cabinetry to a new customized kitchen, those other improvements you make to your home may pale to this one. It’s that important.
Cabinetry selection is one of the more overwhelming choices one makes when you take on the endeavor to remodel your kitchen. Getting some good advice from experts is a great start and will help you wade through the choices. You don’t want to frustrate yourself and run out of steam while planning the kitchen renovations and you sure don’t want to find yourself confused at the array of choices. To make it easy, rely upon the team of design professionals that work with your kitchen contractor. Doing this will make the renovation to your home as peaceful and reliable as possible. Stress-free design, selections, installation and finishing is an important process to go through.
Something you may not consider as a homeowner is the measurement and functionality details involved in designing your kitchen layout and how your cabinets will function in this new layout. After all if you are spending the money to remodel your kitchen, you should ensure it’s designed to your liking and an expert has measured your space to give you the best configuration available. Expert designers also know all the handy inserts, tools, and gadgets you may have not considered or even know is available in cabinetry. Roll out drawers, refrigerated drawers, freezer drawers, motion sensor lights in cabinets, utensil roll outs, custom spice racks masked by beautiful cabinetry right where you want it, and more.
You can take a look at the details involved in the cabinet design below and the steps we take to ensure you are able to visualize what you are about to invest in before spending the money. Often times, changes are made at this stage and save clients thousands of dollars. Each cabinet below has a unique number on it to identify the custom cabinet being ordered. It’s our job to make sure these all add up and are in the right place at the right time.

This is the stage where clients recognize accent colors or detailed moldings they may want to change. This is also where you may decide you want more storage drawers rather than a beverage center or wine fridge. Or vice versa. You may decide your designer was right and that a microwave drawer is much more visually appealing than one over your stove.
