custom kitchen cabinets

When building or remodeling a kitchen, the cabinets help add aesthetic and functional appeal. Our cabinets at E&B Granite have many design and finishing options available. Our capabilities allow you to choose your installation’s height, wood type, door design, and more. Here are six key features of our custom kitchen cabinets:

Custom Sizing and Configuration

Custom kitchen cabinets are available in any size or configuration, offering flexibility and personalization. They can be designed to fit into shapes and corners that are unique to the character of the space. This aspect helps provide a seamless and cohesive look in your kitchen. The cabinets can also be as tall or as deep as you’d like, enabling you to meet your storage needs. Custom builds are suitable for many homes, including those with ceiling pitches, curvatures, or angled walls.

High-quality Design

At E&B Granite, we use high-quality materials for our kitchen cabinets, including solid wood, durable hardware, and premium finishes. These features can help improve the appearance and durability of the finished installation. Our skilled craftsmen make sure each cabinet is constructed with precision and care, resulting in sturdy and professional-looking products. If there are imperfections in the manufacturing or installation process, they can be corrected quickly and easily so that your kitchen is exactly what you imagined.

Custom Material Selection

Different cabinet materials offer varying features, from durability to appearance. When having custom cabinets built, you have the convenient option to select the wood or material that best suits you. Here are some wood types that may be available for your kitchen cabinets:

  • Maple: Maple wood is typically a light color with a fine, consistent grain. It is strong, durable, and easy to stain or paint to achieve a desired look.
  • Oak: Oak wood is also easy to stain and has a distinct natural wood grain. It comes in two main varieties, which are white and red oak. Both options are resistant to rot and decay.
  • Cherry: Cherry wood is durable, easy to work with, and has a rich color with a smooth finish.

If you are not painting or altering the finish of your cabinets for a different look or color, the choice of wood will help determine the look and feel they bring to the kitchen. Some other possible materials include:

  • Plywood: Plywood is a manufactured wood product. It is less sturdy than solid wood but may be layered to enhance its thickness and strength.
  • Medium Density Fiberboard (MDF): MDF is durable and can be finished to look like it has a natural wood grain.

Custom Designs and Details

The design of your kitchen cabinets will influence the feel of the entire room. Custom cabinets offer various options for paneling, molding, and trim on the doors, affecting their finished appearance. These variations can determine whether a kitchen feels modern, traditional, or European. Cabinet door options range from simple to intricate, from flat or recessed to beadboard or glass.

Custom builds also allow you to choose your hardware, including the handles or pulls, hinges, and latches or locks. This aspect enables you to further personalize your cabinetry to match your aesthetic preferences and functional needs. Choose from knobs or bar pulls, concealed or exposed hinges, and magnetic or key locks.

Wide Selection of Color Options

The color of your kitchen cabinets helps set the mood of your space and may match, complement, or contrast with other decorative elements in the room. With custom cabinetry, you can set a dark and moody or a bright and airy tone. Some individuals may prefer the look of the original grainy wood. Custom options also allow you to choose whether to differ the colors between the lower and upper cabinets or have the uppers and lowers match.

Custom Functional Additions

Functional additions can be customized to enhance the usability and convenience of your kitchen cabinets. These additions are often designed to maximize storage, improve organization, and streamline kitchen tasks. They may include the following:

  • Pull-out Shelves
  • Soft-close Mechanisms
  • Lazy Susans
  • Spice Racks
  • Trash and Recycling Pull-outs

Pull-out shelves provide easy access to items stored in the back of the cabinet, reducing the need to reach or bend. They help maximize storage space and are ideal for pantry cabinets and deep base cabinets. Soft-close mechanisms minimize noise and provide a smooth, controlled closure. Lazy Susans maximize the use of corner space and are suitable for storing pots, pans, and small appliances. Custom spice racks can be installed inside cabinet doors or as pull-out units, freeing up counter space. Additional pull-outs may also be added to keep your trash and recycling bins hidden.
