Cabinet Door and Drawer Front Finishing

Cabinet Door and Drawer Front Finishing

Cabinet door and drawer box making is a true Cabinetmaker art form. The ability to transform blah, uninspiring kitchen cabinet doors into a homeowner’s dream takes many years of experience, an eye for detail, and the right products and tools.

At Decore-ative Specialties we understand that cabinet makers are always striving to do their utmost to please their demanding customers. We also understand that it takes a lot of precious time and effort for cabinet makers to keep their customers happy. That is why we have worked hard on our end to design and craft products such as cabinet doors, drawer fronts and drawer boxes that can not only live up to a cabinet maker’s expectations, but also take some of the burden of creation off of their hands.

Cabinet Door Finishing and Drawer Front Finishing

Although we know that cabinet makers typically do their own cabinet door finishing and drawer front finishing, we also know that these jobs can consume a lot of their job time. So we offer our lovingly crafted cabinet doors and drawer fronts in many finished versions, as well as our more traditional unfinished cabinet doors and drawer fronts. By offering cabinet door finishing and drawer front finishing for our cabinet makers, we believe we can help substantially reduce our valuable customer’s work load.

You will find that very few other cabinet door manufacturers offer finished cabinet doors and finished drawer fronts for sale. That is because most cabinet door manufacturers do not want to take on the sometimes substantial additional cost of operating a finishing plant. Most other manufacturers also don’t want to deal with all of the rules and regulations that come with operating such a facility, especially in states like California.

Professional Cabinet Makers

Yes, we know that it would be far easier for our company to follow suit and to not operate a finishing plant, but we believe that this is a valuable service that many of our customers will appreciate, and so we believe it is worth the added aggravation. Just like you, the professional cabinet maker, we at Decore-ative Specialties realize that this extra step is what a lot of our clients are looking for, and so we strive to please our customers, just as you try to please your customers.

Because Decore-ative Specialties has been in business since 1965 and because we are a leader in our industry, we carry all of the materials necessary to create these finished cabinet doors and finished drawer fronts, and we can pride ourselves on being able to craft products that should exactly match your creations.

We offer a variety of finishes, including glazes that allow the beauty of the natural wood to peek through, as well as our Elite Choice paint-based finishes that can completely coat the wood. The Elite Choice finishes creates a sleek no grain look that looks especially fantastic in modern kitchens.

So matter your customer’s preference, colonial, modern or country chic, we believe that our expert and experienced craftsmen can provide just the right finished cabinet door fronts and finished drawer fronts for your projects. We know you take pride in your work, and so we craft our drawer fronts and cabinet doors to meet your high expectations.

Custom Design Series – The Beauty of Custom Cabinet Doors

Custom Design Series – The Beauty of Custom Cabinet Doors

Kitchen and bathroom cabinet door remodeling jobs typically require a big investment of time and money from a homeowner, so it is important that the project be done correctly the first time. Unfortunately, too many homeowners have a tendency to get caught up in the short term cost of a remodeling project rather than looking at the long-term benefits of their finished project. As the dollar signs add up, they rashly cut back on items that may seem unnecessary at the time, but could potentially be the difference of whether they will be happy with their kitchen or bathroom or whether they will have to invest in another remodeling project later on down the line.

One of the biggest mistakes that homeowners tend to make in terms of bathroom and kitchen cabinet door remodeling projects is to assume that just replacing their current cabinet doors and drawer fronts with new but basic stock versions will be good enough. These homeowners may have already invested more than they expected into counters or appliances and so they then decide that new boring stock cabinetry will have to suffice.

Down the road, these very same homeowners may sadly realize that those stock cabinets doors and drawer fronts just look frumpy and out of place in their newly updated kitchen and will kick themselves for not adding the beauty of custom cabinet doors when they had the chance. This is especially unfortunate as cabinet doors and drawer fronts are usually the first things that catch a person’s eye as they enter a room.

Custom Wood Cabinet Doors

Sadly, many homeowners aren’t aware that they can get the rich beauty of custom wood cabinet doors for not much more than the cost of generic stock cabinet doors. Because of this reason, it is important that cabinetmakers give their clients an idea of the choices in cabinet doors and drawer fronts that are available to them today. Without some outside guidance, homeowners will frequently only think in terms of the kitchen and bathroom cabinet styles that they were raised with and so may have a hard time envisioning newer or more fashionable styles.

For instance, homeowners may not be aware that they can get very detailed and beautiful French Lite cabinet doors and drawer fronts that boast stylist decorative cut-out details in the panels. Glass or other inserts can then be added to the cut out areas for a stunning, sophisticated and one-of-a-kind look.

Custom cabinet doors with glass fronts are another beautiful option that really adds refinement and class to any kitchen or bathroom in which they are used. Homes boasting French Lite doors or glass-front cabinet doors and drawer fronts really make a lasting impression on visitors.

French Lite Doors

It is very important for homeowners to choose the right company to create their custom cabinet doors and drawer fronts. An experienced company like Decore-ative Specialties that has been in business since 1965 will not only carry all of the materials and hardware necessary to craft gorgeous custom cabinet doors and drawer fronts, it will also have the talented artisans on hand who can create the cabinet doors and drawer fronts of a homeowner’s dreams.

When it comes to intricate pieces such as French Lite doors, it is, of course, even more important that a homeowner’s custom cabinet doors and drawer fronts are made by experienced craftsmen, such as those at Decore-ative Specialties.

In the end, investing in custom cabinet doors and drawer fronts is really a no-brainer. These pieces will add refinement and sophistication to your home while you are living in it, and will also add value to your house if or when you ever decide to sell it.

Whether you are just starting out as a cabinet maker or installer or you have been in business for years, developing and maintaining an excellent reputation is the only way you will ever be successful. Building a great reputation is not an overnight process. It takes time and it means never taking shortcuts.

It also means never relying on cheaply made drawer boxes, 5 piece cabinet doors or poor quality materials in your jobs. Why is it so important to use only top quality drawer boxes and cabinet doors? It’s because these are frequently used and also high visibility items that can make or break your project.

It is also important to stay far, far away from fly-by-night manufacturers whose products have the potential of failing or breaking. The last thing you need is for a homeowner’s 5 piece cabinet doors to crack, warp or fade over time because chances are your unhappy customer is going to lay the blame on you — the cabinet maker or installer — for a less than perfect kitchen, bathroom or closet.

High-Quality Cabinet Doors Your Customers Desire

No cabinet maker or installer wants to put their sweat and best effort into a job, only to have his reputation attacked because he made a mistake when choosing an inexperienced manufacturer for his 5 piece cabinet doors or drawer boxes.

Comforting and Welcoming Country Kitchens

Comforting and Welcoming Country Kitchens

When a homeowner decides to remodel her kitchen, she often decides to change its styles, as well. One of the most popular styles of kitchens is Country because it is not only casually beautiful, but it is also very welcoming and friendly, as well.

Although most people think mainly of American Country when they think of this cabinet door and matching drawer box style, there are actually two others. There is Country French, which is a charming and comfortable look that marries the rustic features of a French farmhouse with hints of Old World elegance. Guests in this style of kitchen should feel as if the French countryside and a garden full of fresh herbs await them just outside the door.

Cabinet Doors and Drawer Boxes

English Country is another popular look for today’s kitchens. This is an earthy, attractive style that often incorporates stone or brick and lots of bare or white-painted wood. A properly done English Country kitchen should give a person the impression that at any moment a few fox hunters fresh from a morning’s ride might pop on by, looking for a bite to eat.

Then, of course, there is the American style of Country kitchen, which is warm and welcoming and beautiful in an unpretentious way. It’s not surprising that so many people choose this casually elegant design for their kitchen.

Changing your kitchen to one of these popular Country styles is not difficult. The most important step to changing the appearance of a kitchen is to replace all of the existing cabinet doors, drawer boxes and hardware with Country style ones. Cabinet doors and drawer boxes take up such a large percentage of the kitchen that they are really the “face” of a kitchen. They are what give a kitchen its identity.

The Perfect Cabinet Doors

Homeowners should work closely with their kitchen cabinet installer or remodeling contractor to ensure that the cabinet doors and drawer boxes they choose exude the right Country feel for their home. They should also make sure that the cabinet doors and drawer boxes that are being purchased are of the highest quality and from a manufacturer that has been in business for a long time, such as Decore-ative Specialties, which has been crafting these items since 1965.

Because cabinet doors and drawer boxes are used many times every day, it would be a huge mistake to try and save money by purchasing cheaply made ones from a fly-by-night manufacturer. Installers and contractors also must be careful not to let their customers talk them into buying cheap cabinet doors and drawer boxes because, in the end, if these should break or cause a homeowner grief, it is the contractor or installer who will be blamed.

Another bonus of using an experienced cabinet door maker like Decore-ative Specialties is that it can offer a large variety of Country cabinet door styles, including ones with glass fronts and ones made from every available species of wood. In fact, no matter what style a homeowner decides on, French, English or good old-fashioned American Country, Decore-ative Specialties has the perfect cabinet doors and drawers to transform a kitchen into the one of her dreams.

Refacing Your Kitchen For a New Look

Refacing Your Kitchen For a New Look

Whether your kitchen cabinets and drawer fronts look worn or outdated or you are just simply in the mood to transform the appearance of your kitchen, refacing your existing cabinets is a more affordable and quicker way to achieve your goal than installing completely new units.

So what is refacing? It is a technique in which the existing cabinet boxes are left in place, but new cabinet doors, drawer fronts and hardware are installed in place of the old features. To complete the look, matching high-quality laminate veneers, such as DecoLam, are installed onto the side panels of your cabinet boxes so that they exactly match the new doors and drawer fronts. If a refacing job is done properly, your guests will be under the impression that you purchased all new cabinets.

Refacing Your Existing Kitchen Cabinets

Before making a decision on whether to install completely new cabinets or to reface your existing ones, you will need to consider several factors. First, are you planning on completely changing your existing floor plan and moving cabinets around? If not and your cabinet boxes are still in good condition, then refacing your cabinets may be a good money and time saving option for you.

Second, are you on a tight budget or just prefer to save money whenever possible? Purchasing new cabinets can eat up to 50 percent of your kitchen remodeling budget. Refacing your existing kitchen cabinets will cut your costs substantially, but still give you the updated, new appearance that you are seeking.

Third, do you hate having your life disrupted for long periods of time? A typical refacing job can usually be completed in three to five days. In addition, your kitchen is still usable, to some extent, as your appliances will remain in place. Of course, it’s probably best not to try cooking when your contractors are trying to install your doors.

A full kitchen remodeling project, on the other hand, can take much longer, possibly even months, and your kitchen will be pretty much off limits to you during this time. Most people find it rough living without a usable kitchen for a long period of time.

Beautiful Drawer Fronts

Refacing is not a good idea, however, if your cabinets are in terrible condition or are of cheap construction. Putting beautiful drawer fronts and doors onto cheaply built cabinet boxes is like putting lipstick on a pig.

On the other hand, if you do have good quality cabinets and decide to reface for an entirely new look or just to refresh your kitchen, you will probably be stunned by the beauty of your refaced cabinets, especially if you choose to use high-quality cabinet doors and drawer fronts from Decore-ative Specialties. Because this company also offers its DecoLam veneers to match its cabinet doors and drawer fronts, your refaced kitchen cabinets will have a seamless, finished appearance.

Decore-ative Specialties also offers many different styles of doors, including ones with stylish glass fronts. Decore’s cabinet doors are also crafted in every available species of wood.

If you want the look of a brand-new kitchen, but don’t want to invest huge amounts of money or time, then you should definitely look into refacing your cabinets versus installing new units.

Cabinet Doors Can Make or Break a Kitchen Remodel

Cabinet Doors Can Make or Break a Kitchen Remodel

In most houses, the kitchen is the heart of the home. It is also where most gatherings, formal and informal, occur. Even when a party has been carefully planned to occur in the living room or basement, people always seem to migrate naturally to the kitchen, so it’s especially important that this room is welcoming and attractive. A beautiful kitchen with all the bells and whistles is also one of the first things that home buyers look for when searching for a new house.

If your kitchen is outdated, changing the cabinet doors can make a huge difference in the appearance of this room. Nothing else, not even brand new granite counters or shiny, new appliances, will transform the look of your kitchen more than the addition of beautifully made custom cabinet doors. This is especially true if your current kitchen cabinet doors are cheap builder-quality laminates that are peeling or are chipped.

Your Kitchen Cabinet Installer

Because the right cabinet doors can make the difference between having a ho-hum, average kitchen and a spectacular one that wows your guests, it is important to discuss with a cabinet installer or your remodeling contractor what your vision is for your kitchen, as well as your budget. Do you love the look of frosted glass doors, or are you disorganized and the last thing you want is for people to be able to see into your messy cabinets? Are you striving for a modern, traditional, country or upscale look? Are you interested in getting designer cabinet doors? These are just a few of the questions you will need to ask yourself and then discuss with your remodeling contractor or closet installer before starting your kitchen renovation.

Once, you’ve decided the look that you want for your new kitchen, it is time to get down to details. For the best results, your kitchen cabinet installer or remodeling contractor should be working with an experienced cabinet door manufacturer, such as Decore-ative Specialties, which has been in business since 1965. This company offers over 250 different styles of doors and can also create cabinet doors out of any available wood species. Decore-ative Specialties also carries an extensive selection of hardware and accessories from which you can choose to further customize the doors to your taste.

Choosing Your Cabinet Door Manufacturer

When choosing your cabinet door manufacturer, it is also important to find out the company’s production capabilities. Remodeling can be very disruptive to your lifestyle, so the last thing you want is to have your renovation project stalled while you are waiting for your custom cabinet doors to be completed. Here, too, a company like Decore-ative Specialties has a leg up on its competitors. This cabinet specialist has five manufacturing facilities, which means faster production and delivery of your doors.

Once your kitchen remodeling project is completed, don’t forget to change the cabinet doors in the other rooms, of your house to match. Having bathroom cabinet doors and closet cabinet doors that match the ones in your kitchen will give your home a beautifully finished appearance. This is especially true for bathrooms, which tend to have the most cabinet doors of any room besides the kitchen.

Custom Kitchen Cabinets Should Be Carefully Planned

Custom Kitchen Cabinets Should Be Carefully Planned

Custom cabinets will help to organize and maximize the available space in your kitchen. They will also give the kitchen a face lift and achieve a new look for the whole room without completely remodeling the entire kitchen. When done right new kitchen cabinets can add value to a house that will pay off if and when the house is sold.

There are many cabinet makers in the U.S. Finding one to custom make the cabinets you want should not be difficult. Designing cabinetry is relatively easy these days, with the help of computer software. You can design your own or have the cabinet maker design them with your input to get exactly what you want and need.

Local Cabinet Maker

Unless you have a local cabinet maker come to your house and measure the space available for the cabinets you will need to do the measuring yourself. If you order custom made cabinets from a remote source you will need to provide the measurements so they will know the size of the cabinets to build. When you decide on a design the cabinet maker can scale the design to fit the space available.

The best approach is to find a local cabinet maker who can come to your house. This will provide a feel for the overall environment and help with designing of the cabinets. The cabinet maker can give suggestions based on the overall environment and expert experience. Using a remote cabinet maker means you will pick a design for the cabinet maker to build without any expert design suggestions related to the overall environment

Custom Cabinets

There are a lot of choices when it comes to new cabinets. There are different door styles, finishes, pull-out pantries, built-in spice racks, wine racks and many more options to choose from. But custom cabinets can be expensive, so you should focus on quality materials as well as good looks. Pay special attention to the types of hinges and other hardware, and the pieces that hold the cabinets together. Some on the less visible aspects of the cabinets are what makes them last a long time or fall apart relatively soon. Make sure you understand the quality that you are getting for your money. Sometimes it makes sense to spend a little more to get higher quality; after all new cabinets are a long term item for most homeowners.

Custom cabinets can go as high as you want depending on the materials and the design. If the design calls for a lot of fancy and elaborate carpentry work you will pay for it. But you get what you pay for and having high quality cabinets can add value when it comes time to sell the house. So, at least in theory you should be able to re-coop all or part of the investment later when the house is sold. On the other hand if you skimp on the quality of the cabinets you may find yourself re-doing them again in order to be able to sell the house, in which case the cabinets will end up costing much more in the long run. It is important to carefully plan the purchase of kitchen cabinets and to think long term when doing so.
