Our Focus on Quality

Whether you choose face frame cabinets that feature inset doors and look like furniture or sleek Euro-style cabinets, your custom-designed cabinets will be made of real wood — premium options such as figured maple, cherry, wenge, African mahogany, and other exotic hardwoods. Other quality features of our cabinetry include:

  • We only use Forest Stewardship Council certified plywood. The FSC is the leading forest-certification program ensuring that wood has been harvested in an environmentally friendly manner.
  • A unique soft-close system for doors and drawers are put together using dovetail joinery, provides the ultimate convenience and increases your cabinets’ longevity. This innovative mechanism prevents your cabinets from forcefully shutting
  • A design that maximizes the available space, using any size, shape and configuration that works.
  • Seamless finishing touches that reflect our distinctive craftsmanship, including wood staining, specialty painting, tinted clear coats, conversion varnish, hand glazes and durable polyurethane coatings.
  • Hardware personally selected by our in-house interior designer to complement your cabinets’ style.
