Why Custom?

Custom cabinetry offers a variety of benefits that homeowners should consider when undergoing a kitchen remodel. Custom kitchen cabinets are made for your kitchen and your vision. You select everything from the materials and colors to the layout. With stock cabinets, homeowners are limited in layout options since the cabinets are standard size. With custom cabinetry, however, you can increase your kitchen storage, improve the flow of your kitchen, and get exactly what you envision. Custom cabinets are also higher quality and have a longer shelf life than stock cabinets.

We work with a variety of custom cabinetry makers, including:

  • Wood-Mode
  • Brookhaven
  • SieMatic
  • Christiana
  • Carolina Artisan
  • Shiloh
  • Eclipse
