The ordering process for both semi-custom and custom cabinetry involves several key steps. For semi-custom cabinetry, clients typically begin by selecting from a range of pre-designed options, including styles, finishes, and hardware. Measurements of the space are taken, either by the client or someone on our staff, to ensure proper fitting. Working with a Dean Cabinetry designer, clients can customize certain aspects within the parameters of the pre-designed options, such as adding unique storage features or modifying dimensions to accommodate specific needs. Once the design and customization details are finalized, the order is placed, and the production process begins.
In contrast, custom cabinetry offers a higher level of personalization. The ordering process for custom cabinetry involves in-depth consultations with a Dean Cabinetry designer to discuss specific design requirements, preferences, and functional considerations. Detailed measurements are taken by our team to ensure a precise fit. Clients have the freedom to select from a wide range of materials, finishes, hardware, and design elements. The Dean Cabinetry team then crafts the cabinets from scratch, incorporating the client’s unique specifications and preferences.
It’s important to note that the timeline for custom cabinetry or top-of-the-line semi-custom cabinetry tends to be longer due to the highly tailored nature of the process. Setting realistic timelines is crucial, considering factors such as design development, material sourcing, production, and installation. Quality craftsmanship takes time, and during the production phase, skilled woodworkers at Dean Cabinetry meticulously construct and finish each piece by hand, ensuring exceptional quality and attention to detail. While the timeline may be longer, the result is a truly customized kitchen that meets the client’s exact specifications.
