You’ve looked everywhere: department and home furnishing stores, DIY-style hardware depots, office outfitters, specialty outlets, and even several antique shops, but you still can’t find just the right combination storage, display and shelving unit that you want for your home. Do you simply give up and settle for a second-rate alternative?
There is a solution, and it doesn’t mean compromising on good design or accepting sub-par quality for an item that doesn’t fit your exact needs or blend well into your existing décor. An experienced builder with a team of craftsmen skilled in the art of high-end carpentry can create the perfect custom cabinetry and built-in furniture —in any style, design or wood finish you want—to suit your precise needs and personal taste.
Examples of Custom Cabinetry Finishes:
- European cottage and Country-style
- Faux finishes
- Tea staining and Oiled
- Distressed wood and Vintage
- Wood veneer – an astounding array of veneer is available, both domestic and exotic
As the term implies, no two custom cabinets are alike. Each piece is cut to fit a design conceived expressly for your surroundings. The components of the finished product are never mass-produced, with the utmost guarantee that the finished product will have no equal anywhere else.
What is Marquetry, By the Way?
Marquetry is a technique where pieces of different wood veneers are fitted together to create a picture or pattern. This is truly a specialty craft that can turn a plain piece of furniture or cabinet into an absolute work of art. The use of marquetry isn’t limited to the façade and sides of cabinetry, as this detailed work can also be featured in cabinet divisions and supports.
Endless Possibilities in Esthetics and Functionality
Do you want compact cabinetry for a tricky corner, a series of discreet overhead cupboards and shelves in the front entrance or an entire, built-in home entertainment unit to house your every gadget and gizmo for movies and music? Do you dream about finally jazzing up that walk-in closet with some elegantly decorated drawers and dedicated niches for everything from suits and sweaters to summer shorts and shoes? Or take it up another notch with an elaborate armoire with French-inspired marquetry. The right custom cabinetry team will take pains to achieve precisely the look and utility you’re imagining, with results that will amaze you.
