Dean Cabinetry takes great pride in operating as a lean company.  Lean is a business theory based on continuous improvement and the elimination of waste.  Lean is also about eliminating non-value-added activities and strictly doing activities that deliver value to our clients.  We believe that our clients will appreciate this as it allows us to use time efficiently and offer the best pricing. If you appreciate this way of thinking, Dean Cabinetry might be a great fit for you.

We work with these professionals every day and are always looking for the best in the industry. Please let us know if you’d like a contractor referral.

Is Dean Cabinetry Not for Me?


Dean Cabinetry is not a good fit for you if you want to drive the process.  We have had clients who want to work their way or the highway. Unfortunately, Dean Cabinetry does not fit well with this type of client.


Dean Cabinetry is not a good fit for you if you want us to spend a great deal of time and effort on your project before you make a commitment to us.  We are happy and excited to invest our full attention and dedication to your project. In fact, we have worked for years on a client’s design before they were ready to order their cabinetry.  However, we are unwilling to make this investment, if you as the client cannot commit to us.

Interior Design

Our specialty is cabinet layout, function, and design.  We are experts with the finishes and colors of the cabinetry, but we are not experts in the area of interior design. Our designers are happy to offer advice on items such as backsplashes, light fixtures, and flooring, but we do not have the expertise that a full-time interior designer would.  Dean Cabinetry is happy to recommend you to an interior designer, we work with many of them. If you’d like to learn more about an Interior Designer vs. a Kitchen Designer check out this article.

Leah & John Getting Feedback on Client’s Kitchen

Cheapest Price

Dean Cabinetry is not a good fit for you if you are solely concerned with price.  We firmly believe that we are primarily a service provider and secondarily a materials provider.  Many companies can manufacture and sell cabinets. Few companies can match our level of service, responsiveness, and commitment to clients.  Because of our lean process, we can offer very competitive pricing, but you will surely be able to find someone who can do it cheaper.

We hope this helped you decide if Dean Cabinetry is a great for you. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
