Cabinet makers are in a distinct profession - a subset of the carpentry industry and a specialty branch of woodworking known as furniture makers.

When choosing a custom cabinet maker, it is advised to have in mind the following factors to discuss with the service provider.

  • Size expectations, especially if space is limited such as in a kitchen.
  • The type of construction, such as exposed or hidden joints, surface roughness, and final stain or gloss.
  • Preferred wood material from warm to dark colored woods, hard or soft densities, subtle or highly irregular grains - the options are limitless!
  • Desired design style that is suitable for your decor and your family's usage.

When to Hire a Cabinet Maker

There are times when off-the-shelf cabinetry is not the best solution for home decorating and storage needs. When upgrading your home, often the mass produced, in-store options are of an inferior quality using veneer panels adhered to particle board or inferior wood stocks, are limited in wood types and grain patterns, and simply do not fulfill the storage needs for your family's lifestyle. Consider hiring a cabinet maker for the following home enhancements that require a truly professional and uniquely personal style:

  • Unique Kitchen/Bathroom Cabinetry - for one-of-a-kind professional remodels
  • Custom Library or Theatre Room - entertainment centers, full-height bookshelves - especially when recessed into wall space
  • Heirloom Furniture - to be passed down for generations
  • Private Collection Displays - curio cabinets, china hutch, gun racks
  • Custom Storage Solutions - from basement to garage to in-home needs
  • Luxury Baby Furniture - solid construction with baby's safety in mind
  • Custom Wooden Desk - as an architectural focal point to home office
  • Home Arts Studio - requires durable and unique storage solutions

Considerations When Selecting a Cabinet Maker

  • Cabinet Material - includes the wood type and hardware selection.
  • Design Considerations - entails deciding on cabinetry size and placement of storage cubicles and drawers, along with the wood detailing.
  • Green Options - be sure to discuss any green options important to your family, such as using reclaimed wood, non-toxic varnishes and stains, use of certified sustainable forest materials, and certainly avoiding off-gassing chemicals (VOCs such as formaldehyde).
