Why Custom Cabinetry?

You have pride in your home. You've invested your time, dreams, and money into your haven, the headquarters of your life. Your home harbors you, your family, and your belongings. You deserve to have the look and functionality you want. Custom cabinetry gives you exactly that.

Stock cabinets are mass-produced in standard sizes, making them the most affordale and least customizable option. There are a limited variety of styles available with several door styles and a few color choices within each style. Standard cabinet widths come in three inch increments from nine to forty-eight inches. Filler strips are used between cabinets to make up for width disparities creating cabinets that are not symmetrically balanced and have wasted space. Accessory options are limited. In most cases they are finished by machine, which can result in missing stain, light stain patterns, or light hallow patterns where the frame meets the center panel, most noticeable on darker doors. Because of this, it is important to inspect each door before purchase. Stock cabinets have the advantage of immediate off-the-shelf availability, and they satisfy basic home-improvement requirements. But they also come with a lot of compromises.

Custom cabinets are built-to-order to detailed specifications. Complex layouts and unusual measurements can be accomodated. The precise design desired, wood species, color, features, and sizes are all crafted together in flawless quality. Limitless storage options make the most of your available space. Hand applied finishes produce a brilliant furniture grade appearance. Custom cabinets can even match the existing furniture or molding within your home. Unlimited flexibility in sizes, finishes, and hardware make the designs you envision into a unique, beautiful, and enduring reality.
