What to Consider When You're in the Market for a Cabinet-Maker

Looking to install quality custom cabinets in your kitchen, bathrooms or laundry area? Installing custom cabinetry is an excellent way to make the most of your living space. However, the main challenge lies in identifying the right cabinet-maker for your project.

Cabinet-making is a skill that can be confusing to assess, especially if you don't have a keen eye for detail — but it's not exactly rocket science. Here are some key things to consider when looking for a custom cabinet-maker.

Previous Projects 

The best cabinet-makers aren't afraid to showcase their completed work — they usually post photos of their work on their website and social media platforms. When you are searching for a cabinet-maker, make sure you check their project portfolio so you can have a general idea about the quality of work they do.

If you like what you see, contact the company to find out if they can provide you with references of happy customers. Good cabinet-makers shouldn't have a problem with doing that. 

Level of Expertise

As already mentioned above, cabinet-making is a job based on skill, and the quality of craftsmanship varies depending on the cabinet-maker you choose. If you want the best results, you should choose a highly skilled cabinet-maker.

Pick a company that has a lot of experience in designing and making custom cabinets and that specialises in making the specific type of cabinets that you need. If you need custom cabinets for your bathroom, for example, choose a vendor that has years of experience in making bathroom cabinets.


Before agreeing to hire any cabinet-maker, you should check their reputation. Looking into the reputation of prospective cabinet-makers helps you to identify trustworthy and reliable businesses while protecting you from businesses that are notorious for failing to satisfy their customers. 

Project Costs

When you are looking for a cabinet-maker, you should always keep in mind that you get what you pay for. While looking for the vendor that offers the cheapest quote for your job might seem to be a clever thing to do, it can backfire, especially if you end up getting poor-quality cabinets.

Strive to find a cabinet-maker that offers the best blend of craftsmanship, reputation and quality at a price you can afford.

If you carefully take the above-highlighted factors into account, you should be able to identify the right custom cabinet-maker.

Renovating Your Kitchen On A Budget

Renovating a house is such a fun experience, especially when you take a very outdated room and modernise it. When I bought my first house, the kitchen was so retro '70s that I got a headache every time I walked in. Because it was my first home, I had to renovate on a budget, and now that the task is complete, I've started this blog to share my experience. My blog posts cover everything from buying kitchen hardware at sale prices to ways you can update the look without spending a fortune. I hope that my blog posts will enable you to make the renovations you need without spending a fortune.
