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.

Drawer Boxes and Drawer Fronts Can Transform Your Home

Your home is your palace, your place of refuge and shelter. A true home – and not just a house – should be a reflection of your personality, an extension of who you are and what you love in this world.

Unfortunately, too many people live in houses with features they just tolerate, assuming that it would cost too much to change their houses to more suit their tastes and styles. Still other homeowners have watched as wear and tear has robbed their homes of their beauty and wondered if there was anything they could do to renew the appearance of their once lovely rooms.

Adding New Cabinet Doors

Adding new cabinet doors, drawer boxes and drawer fronts is one way that you can really change or freshen-up the appearance of your rooms, especially your kitchen, bathrooms and closets. Let’s say, for instance, your home currently has bland builder’s cabinet doors and drawer boxes that are functional, but – dare we say – very boring. By changing your old cabinet doors and drawer boxes in, for instance, your kitchen with country style beauties in a rustic knotty alder, this room, the heart of your home, will suddenly have a whole new look and a completely different air about it.

If country isn’t your style, then swap out your blah drawer boxes and drawer fronts for ones that have been finished with a sleek colored glaze and high-sheen hardware. This will transform your ordinary kitchen into a modern one that will look like it belongs to a movie star.

If you are ready to transform your kitchen or other rooms with new cabinet doors, drawer boxes or drawer fronts, it is important to choose quality products from an experienced manufacturer who has been in business for a number of years.

Options for Customizing Your Drawer Boxes

Options for Customizing Your Drawer Boxes

Decisions, decisions, decisions… During a remodeling job, a homeowner has to make what seems like a million decisions, including what style he wants to go with, how much he wants to spend on his project and even such small details as what type of hardware to put on his cabinet doors and drawer boxes. After a while, some homeowners feel like just throwing their hands up in the air when it comes to the smaller details and just have their remodeling contractor or installer have the final say.

Although it may be tempting for a homeowner to give up control of these small details to his remodeling contractor, it would be a big mistake for him to do so. Something like the features of a drawer box may not seem important when a homeowner is overwhelmed with making numerous decisions at the same time, but later on when he is spending every day using the item, he may come to regret not having more input into his home’s design and features.

Drawer Box Manufacturing

As mentioned earlier, drawer boxes can be one of these items that homeowners may not typically put a lot of thought into. When they walk into their kitchen or bathroom, for instance, they just take it for granted that the drawer box will glide open smoothly and then hold their items. Of course, anyone who owns drawers that slide open all on their own or have cracked bottoms know that having poor quality drawer boxes can be a daily aggravation.

Because having high quality drawers will save you from this type of aggravation and because beautiful drawer boxes can make or break the look of a home, it’s important to purchase them from a company, such as Decore-ative Specialties, that has years of experience in the cabinet door and drawer box manufacturing business. With Decore-ative Specialties, you know that you will not only be receiving top quality drawers that will last for years, but that your beautiful drawer boxes will exactly match your cabinet doors, as well.

Drawer boxes from Decore-ative Specialties can also be ordered with such important details as built-in dividers or even file notching for boxes that are intended for use in a home office.
