When Jack Lansford Sr. opened Decore-ative Specialties in 1965, it was the first custom cabinet company in Southern California to manufacture raised custom cabinet panel doors. Since then, Decore-ative Specialties’ reputation as a trendsetter in the custom cabinet components industry remains strong, with its commitment to lean and sustainable custom cabinet manufacturing. “The secret to our success is simple,” says Jack Lansford Jr. “We give customers a quality product, shipped on time and for a decent price.”
Responsible Forest Management
Decore-ative Specialties commitment to green is highlighted in an easy reference tool for custom cabinet customers. The “Green, Greener, Greenest” program categorizes the company’s custom cabinet products/capabilities into three tier levels, ranging from Green (sustainable wood materials/responsible forest management, including custom cabinet bamboo, custom cabinet European steamed beech and custom cabinet MDF), to Greenest (FSC-certified products, no-added urea formaldehyde panels, and components used for projects seeking LEED certification.).

Spraying Shaders with Pure Colors Finishes
Pre-fabricated and stock cabinetry is manufactured using per-determined dimensions and built to be used in a variety of generic kitchen styles.
The Problem With Pre-Fab Kitchen Cabinets
The problem this causes is that when a pre-fab or stock kitchen is installed, more times than not there will be dead space because the pieces won’t fit your specific custom cabinet kitchen layout exactly. When this happens, fillers are used to cover up any areas where the dead space exists. Many kitchens can lose as much as one square foot or more of useable cabinet space when fillers are used. Custom cabinetry allows you to use the maximum available space for your remodeling project.
Using custom cabinetry also gives you the highest quality product and the exact design and layout you are looking for.
