This is the second time that John and his team designed and installed a kitchen for us. We were so happy the first time that when we bought a new house we called them first thing to redo their magic.
Richard Furst
Dean Cabinet was an exceptionally professional experience with our new home. From design consultations with Jenny to installation and follow-up. Quality is excellent and installations were scheduled and done on time. I would highly recommend Dean Cabinet to anyone, new home or renovation.
Dave Coyle
We contracted with Dean Cabinetry for our kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Our experience from start to finish was outstanding. Their knowledgeable staff guided us through the entire process, from design to installation. We found them to be creative problem solvers who were highly professional and responsive to our needs. We couldn’t be happier with the final results and would highly recommend them to anyone in the market for high quality cabinetry.
Kitti OConnell
Dean Cabinetry designed and installed our Kitchen as well as the master Bath and Closet cabinetry in our new construction house. The design team extensively have gone through every detail and need to costumize our cabinets and style. I highly recommend Dean Cabinetry for custom cabinets design.
Rich Sitnik
Dean Cabinetry was great to work with from start to finish. We had a vision and budget in mind for our kitchen and it was easy to work with their whole team. Dean provided options in different price ranges that were identified before we got started with design. There was a lot of back and forth on the design which we appreciated since each pass brought new ideas and refinements. We were notified when the cabinets would arrive, dates they would be installed and what to expect at each step, with very informative emails. The workmanship of the installation was done very professionally with cleanup done at the end of every day. Overall I rate service and follow-up very high and would recommend anyone looking for cabinets to contact Dean Cabinetry.

Carolyn Williams
Website is great for inspiration and shows a lot of the completed projects. Staff was quick to respond and great to deal with.
Alison McPherson
My husband and I recently worked with Dean Cabinetry to update our kitchen, two bathrooms and mudroom. From start to finish, our experience with Dean Cabinetry was exceptional. They are true masters of their craft, and their customer service is excellent. The designer we worked with for custom cabinetry was extremely knowledgeable and responsive, and we are so happy with the layout and functionality of our updated spaces. The installer did a beautiful job, and was always willing to adjust or touch up anything we may have concerns about. We had damage done to the cabinets by our contractor, and Dean Cabinetry was able and willing to fix it for us which was hugely appreciated. They frequently touched base to make sure all our needs were met. We cannot speak highly enough of Dean Cabinetry and would whole heartedly recommend them. They were the best part of our renovation experience and we are so thankful we worked with them. Thank you Dean Cabinetry team!
Stephen Szymanski
Dean Cabinetry just installed beautiful new cabinets at my home. This is the second kitchen project I have used them for. There are a lot of other companies out there but they are the best I have ever dealt with in terms of professionalism, responsiveness, and quality of workmanship. Their entire team was top notch throughout the discovery, design, and installation process, and they stand behind their work. I would recommend them to anyone who wants an excellent final result, regardless of their budget.
Karen Harvey
WONDERFUL experience!! Great team of people from design to installation. From day 1 excellent communication and availability to answer questions and work out any concerns. Honest folks. No surprises as far as cost; right up front at the get go. These guys do some big expensive gorgeous kitchens. Our kitchen and budget was modest. I was a bit concerned that we would be an after thoughts…..Nope!! They treated us like gold ☺️. LOVE, Love…love 💗our new kitchen from Dean!! These guys were a home run!!
Matthew Getz
Dean Cabinetry surpassed our expectations for service, quality, and craftsmanship! We worked with them from start to finish of our kitchen remodel, from designing the cabinet layout to fabrication, customization, and install. They offer three levels of cabinetry and we couldn't be more happy with their Connecticut-built, extremely well-crafted custom product. We have a 110+ year old house and the installation team was able to make on-site adjustments to match the cabinets perfectly fit into the "not totally level or square" space. There's nothing better than working with a local small business for great service!
Renee Marques
I had an amazing experience with Dean's cabinetry.The moment you walk into their beautiful showroom you are warmly welcomed. Jennifer was so informative and helped with my initial design. Sean gave me some great ideas and turned my project into a beautiful creation. I could tell that everyone involved in my project from initial consultation, to design and pick up really cared about my project and were not pushy sale people. When my project was complete Eric and Marcia made the pickup run seamlessly. Marcia went out of her way to make sure I had everything I needed to complete my project.I would highly recommend Dean's cabinetry for their quality, expertise and overall fantastic experience.
Kristen Soter
We visited and priced out cabinets with several well known companies before going to Dean's Cabinetry. From the very first visit to the last installation visit they were all professional and made the whole experience of a complete kitchen remodel much easier. We are extremely happy with the quality and installation. We absolutely love our beautiful kitchen and we would definitely recommend Dean's Cabinetry.
M LaBelle
When my son was ready to renovate his condo’s small and very old kitchen, he chose Dean Cabinetry on the recommendation of his contractor. I was involved with most of his design choices and both of us were really impressed with Dean’s professionalism, quality and ability to deliver the cabinets he wanted at an affordable price point. Their detailed, sequential process clarified all the decisions we had to make at each phase of the planning. This process also meant there were no surprises in terms of cost. We also had quick access to a single individual responsible for answering all of our questions, dealing with any concerns and keeping our project on track. Dean’s focus on quality was especially impressive. Shortly after choosing our semi-custom cabinetry, we were informed that the cabinet company we chose was slipping in terms of Dean’s quality standards and their relationship was being discontinued. As a result, we were asked to look at several other options. The one we picked had similar finishes and designs and worked out very well. The installation was on schedule and all of the minor items on our punch list were handled promptly. We were assured that should anything come up in the future, Dean would guarantee our satisfaction. Finally, I have to say that I love the fact that Dean is a family business. They obviously take great pride in their workmanship, service and reputation. All in all, while my son’s kitchen was probably much smaller in scale and scope than most of Dean’s other projects, I’m sure we received the same care and attention. I would recommend Dean Cabinetry without hesitation.
Kelly Morris
I needed a paint match to cabinets not even purchased via dean cabinetry. Called them up and they send me the perfect match to my cabinets. Very professional and cheerful. I will definitely Reach out to them for my next project! 😃
Cathy Shea
Of the many aspects to building our new home, the experience we had with Dean Cabinetry was one of the best. We sat down with the designer, Sean, who walked us through the process, helped to make sure there was a home for everything in our kitchen and that the cabinets would fit our particular aesthetics. We toured the shop and saw the craftmanship and attention to detail that Dean offers. Our cabinets were delivered and installed exactly when our builder was ready for them and they are not only beautiful to look at, but really functional as well. I wish I had known about Dean Cabinetry 15 years ago when we remodeled the kitchen in our old house. We could have saved a lot of money and gotten a nicer product. I highly recommend checking out Dean if you are considering a new kitchen!
Jake Gibbs
Very good cabinet company to work with. There attention to detail is unbelievable.
Jody Cormack
We had an absolutely fantastic experience working with Dean Cabinetry! Being a family-owned and operated business, they work very hard to ensure that their customers receive the best possible guidance and quality of service. We had an idea for our kitchen that took quite a lot of planning and finessing, dealing with a large space that allowed for ease-of-movement and accommodated simultaneous cooking activities. We also wanted to make the most of the view and not have cabinetry getting in the way of any of that. AND, I wanted a desk to sit at where I could see if the milk was boiling over or the frying pan was on fire! In my mind it was all a pretty tall order, and in the end Dean Cabinetry put together a perfect space for us. And lest I forget, they made a gorgeous bathroom cabinet for under the big long mirror and sinks. There aren't pictures for that here, but we get many "Oooo's" and "Ahhh's"! Thank you to Laura and Paul (who worked worked directly on the design with us) and everybody at Dean's!!!
Benny Nordahl
Craftsmanship, trust, communication, and reliability– these work and service qualities are hard to come by when doing any type of renovation. It’s especially rare to find all these qualities in one business. Dean Cabinetry and Kevin’s remarkable team embody all these qualities and were, hands down, the best part of our renovation experience this year. Finding people you can trust is difficult. It’s also challenging to find a company you can trust to keep on budget when you really need to stick to it. I’m also a firm believer that praise is for those who go above and beyond what they are asked to do and not for those who just get it done.Design & Planning:It’s easy to get lost in the many cabinet brands and styles offered in Dean’s showroom in Bolton. Since our budget didn’t allow us to do custom kitchen cabinets, we wanted a brand and style that was known for its stock’s quality and style at a price we could afford. Paul, Designer at Dean Cab, helped us decide on stock cabinets from Fabuwood. Galaxy is Fabuwood’s Shaker-style version which we chose in their new Indigo (dark blue) color for our kitchen island and Frost (white) for our wall cabinets and semi-custom pantry. Paul was great. There was no upselling or trying to get us to add on and upgrade to fancier or more expensive items. He understood what we wanted to achieve in our kitchen renovation and helped us design and plan a wonderful layout. This was not an easy task because our kitchen has 3 large windows, 2 interior door openings, and an exterior door which didn’t leave much space for wall cabinets. We also got our cabinets faster than we had expected.Installation:Mike handled the installation. My wife and I have done many renovations over the past twenty years, including a historic rehabilitation of a 7,000 sq. ft. Federal style home (c. 1832), and know that Mike is that rare, dedicated craftsman who takes real pride in his work. He drove several hours (sometimes 3-1/2 hours with traffic) to our house and worked diligently and skillfully to assemble all the cabinet pieces together. He had a critical eye and quickly noted some cabinet items that he thought did not meet their standards and therefore needed to be replaced. Dean Cabinetry installed those replacements in no time. He and Paul also worked together to help resolve on-site challenges. One time, I gave Mike some last-minute punch list items I wanted to be completed the next time he came back. Instead of waiting until the next time he was scheduled to come back to our house, Mike stayed late and made sure every single one of my concerns was resolved before he went home.Summary:From design, planning, installation, and coming back several times to get the job done, Kevin and his team really went above and beyond our expectations. We worked with an array of contractors and subcontractors during our renovation. I’m not sure if it’s the COVID era or inflation that made our experiences with many of them disappointing and, with a few, a real nightmare. It’s expensive to do a kitchen reno or any type of reno these days with price gauging and sloppy work more a common experience than not. It seems we were really lucky to find Dean Cabinetry.(Photos coming soon.)

When we remodeled our lake house, we wanted a bright clean look. Dean Cabinetry did an excellent job providing a good looking, functional kitchen. We were able to modify as needed until we got the look we liked, and then Dean Cabinetry performed the installation very quickly. When we then added some features a few years later, our plans were still on file and the additions were added seamlessly. The kitchen still looks great and we're thankful that we used Dean Cabinetry. Great job by their entire team.
Sean Heald
Excellent company to work with they helped us put our dream kitchen together. Installation went smoothly and they came out to install extra shelving without hesitation highly recommend.
Laine Vontell
We first used Dean Cabinetry in 2013 when they made us a custom bathroom vanity. It surpassed our expectations, and it became the "favorite bathroom" of every person who saw it. We knew Dean would do our dream kitchen one day, which was completed in 2022. They built our custom cabinets which included inset/fully integrated paneling for our SubZero and Cove appliances and also a dry bar and pantries in the adjoining room. Every detail that I imagined, they could do. From start to finish, they became our partners and our friends, making sure every bit was handled and that we were taken care of. The installation was the highest quality possible and they will be there until every inch is exactly right. Integrity is the core of their business and they are one of a small handful of names we would recommend in the industry. We could not be happier - thank you to the entire team! I wish I had another kitchen to do! 🙂
Lauren Greenspoon
We highly recommend Dean Cabinetry. They are very easy to work with and pay close attention to every detail. Their designers were endlessly patient as we went through several revisions of our original plans. They have a beautiful showroom in Bolton, CT, with many samples available for viewing. The installation went very smoothly, and the team made sure that everything looked great.We used a stock cabinet manufactured by Fabuwood. It is of very good quality and looks beautiful. When we had an issue with the paint on one door and one drawer cracking, they ordered replacements immediately and returned to install them promptly. Additionally, when our microwave broke 16 months later, and we had to remove some of the cabinet trim in order to install the new one, we called Dean Cabinetry, and, over the telephone, they instructed the appliance installer as to how to remove the trim without cracking it. Dean Cabinetry then returned to re-install the trim at no cost to us, even though they had finished our kitchen over a year earlier. We are extremely pleased with our kitchen cabinets and with Dean Cabinetry.
Camilla Stroud
Working with Dean Cabinetry was a pleasure. Our designer, Sean, made just some minor changes in the kitchen layout, but they resulted in a room that seems so much more open and spacious.
Cynthia Marshall
During installation, Keaton reached out to me on two separate occasions. First to confirm on the placement of the island based on where it was shown to be in the plans which was not the placement I wanted. Secondly, on the drawer pulls because he thought I would be unhappy with the size of them. He was right. The attention to detail and customer service was so appreciated so that the final product was what I wanted. There was one issue with the lazy susan that came up quite a bit after installation and they came out immediately and addressed it. Definitely recommend Dean Cabinetry!!
Teresa Turner
Thank you, Leah and team Dean!!!Clearly the most important secret ingredient to every great recipe success is starting with the perfect kitchen design by Dean Cabinetry!!!!Our beautiful kitchen works just perfectly for us! Your design advice was spot on and we are so happy we took your advice about the layout. Always trust the experts!!!! Thank you, also, for your periotic follow ups to be sure everything is working as we hoped. Every member of your team was just fabulous. The level of pride in the quality of their service and your team's ownership of the project details really sets your business apart from others we have worked with!Every person who walks through our front door is awed by that pretty kitchen that we get to enjoy every day! But even more importantly, this kitchen is FUN to use!!! Our first friendly cake bake-off challenge was hilariously fun even for those of us who didn't win! Plenty of room for multiple chefs...and even those who just like pretending to be chefs!Again, THANK YOU!!!
Dan Prokop
We used Dean Cabinetry to design and install a new kitchen within an addition project at our home. They exceeded our expectations at every step. They have a very specific process in place that really insured a smooth experience from start to finish. We ordered our cabinets during the height of Covid when lead times were very long and chose to order our cabinets before our addition was even framed. Our designer Paul’s expertise gave us the confidence to take this risk and everything worked out perfectly. Communication during the entire process was great. We got multiple updates on the status of our cabinet order and Kevin was in touch along the way to coordinate our install well ahead of the cabinets being ready. We had multiple delays on our end and Kevin was able to accommodate us and get our kitchen complete for us to host Christmas. Any issues on the punch list were addressed and Kevin and his install team went above and beyond to make sure that we were 200% satisfied. I feel very confident that they will be there for us if we have any issues with our cabinets down the road. I highly recommend choosing Dean Cabinetry- you get all the benefits of dealing with a local family owned business that is large enough and has been around long enough to deliver a great customer experience.
Beth Morav
We had a wonderful experience with Dean Cabinetry and highly recommend them for kitchen, bathroom, mudroom, built-ins, and any other cabinetry project. Dean Cabinetry helped bring an amateur concept that we created to life with a design that was functional and simplistic but comprehensive and stunning. From our initial interview with Jenny to being placed with Paul for the design and construction to the delivery and install team, we were very well cared for. Being unfamiliar with construction and remodeling, we had many questions that ranged from budget to install to technical terms. They were patient and understanding and helped us to understand each stage without ever rushing us or making adjustments to the cost. They walked through the semi and custom levels with us to make sure we understood all our options and at each price point. When we were not able to find the door design we wanted, they created it and it is simply perfect. Paul was tremendously supportive in his efforts to make sure our new kitchen worked for our family's day-to-day life. He found a way to incorporate our "wants" with our "needs" so that our kitchen, which is open but not necessarily large, is a space we enjoy and use effectively. Our installer, Leandro, and install coordinator, Matt, were patient and thoughtful with explaining on-site decisions such as door adjustments and hardware placement. They also helped rework a challenging situation with a downdraft vent that was incorrectly measured and made sure our design's integrity was not compromised. The Dean team are true professionals that carry out the value of independent businesses who truly put customers first. They were on time, thorough, problem-solved when issues arrived, and supported us through the largest and most challenging project we have taken on. They are also incredibly sweet and friendly and it is obvious that they genuinely love the work they do and care for their employees. We would highly recommend them and hope to see their business continue to grow.
Kathryn Monroe
18 years ago we used Dean Cabinetry to design and install our kitchen cabinets. They have held up wonderfully and look as good as they did at installation. After 18 years of significant wear and tear we finally had our first drawer break. I contacted Dean and they sent out a repair team quickly. The drawer is good as new and such and easy experience. Would highly recommend!!
Mariane Hart
We couldn’t be more pleased with our new kitchen and the overall experience with Dean Cabinetry. Their custom cabinets are a gorgeous, quality product which look fantastic in the photos, but even better in person. As a local business they very accessible. The entire staff made us feel special from start to finish. We highly recommend Dean Cabinetry!
Debbie Burnham
We love our new cabinets from Dean Cabinetry! They were professional, friendly and went above and beyond making sure everything was done to our satisfaction. I would highly recommend them.

Great company! Beautiful cabinets, superb installation & excellent customer service. They have a wonderful process and are so easy to work with.
Robert Deane
Quality products and service. They were on time with the installation of our kitchen and bathroom cabinetry in our new home. They were the first tradespeople to check back to make sure everything was working properly. I would not hesitate to recommend them.
Papale Amy
Dean Cabinetry was amazing! Top quality cabinetry and attention to detail every step of the way, from design to installation! We have received SO many compliments on our new kitchen!
Dennis Platt
We would highly recommend Dean Cabinetry. They worked with us to fine tune our kitchen design, suggested design alternatives that improved the design, made great cabinets and matched the wood species / stain that we wanted. The process from design to installation was easy, they were quick to respond and worked well with our builder.
Jon Laing
“Hmmm … if we were to completely gut and rebuild our kitchen, who can we trust to help turn our vision into reality?” When we asked this question of our contractor, without hesitation he suggested Dean Cabinetry. His logic was that the quality of their materials, the craftsmanship of their installers, and their overall Customer Service was 2nd to none. He was right.
Dean cabinetry installed our beautiful custom kitchen cabinets. Working with them was a pleasure. From the design to the installation it all seemed flawless. Any questions or issues that came up were immediately taken care of. I still wake up amazed at how beautiful and functional our kitchen is! Thank you Brooke, Leah, John, Kevin and Keaton
Emily Turker
I went to Dean Cabinetry on the recommendation of my contractor. It was well worth the 38 year wait to remodel my kitchen! i went in with the thought of just doing a small redo and after listening to my ideas Leah Dean said “she could certainly do what I had asked but to be perfectly honest I don’t think you’re going to be happy.” And boy was she right! All the features I was dreaming of could not be achieved with its current layout. So With Leah’s help and designer Paul, Dean Cabinetry transformed my 1986 kitchen into something I could never have imagined! It has changed the entire look and feel of the first floor into a light, bright welcoming space with tons of storage (I especially love my mixer lift) function and detail. I can’t say enough about the entire Dean team. They go above and beyond to make sure you love the entire process including the end result and the price.
Kristin Pettazzoni
Dean Cabinetry helped design my kitchen, transform my vision into reality as well as install our kitchen cabinetry. Upon walking in the showroom I knew we were on the right place, greeted by owner Leah, designed by Sean, installed by Mike and followed up by Kevin every step of the process was professional, timely and accommodating. As a Real Estate agent during Covid my office has been my dining roomTable and my office. I love the design, quality and installation. I highly recommend these professionals!
Georgie Aronson
If you want cabinets and great service this is the place to go! From Kevin the overall coordinator, Paul my salesperson, to Nate and Leandro the cabinet installers I could not have asked for better service and people who care about their work. Even the men who delivered the cabinets were careful and cared. The follow up by Leah was also a sign that they cared about their business!
Melissa Sutyla
Our experience with Dean Cabinetry was wonderful! Every person we dealt with was super helpful and very detail oriented which made the entire process run smoothly. We couldn't be any happier with the look and quality of our kitchen. Would highly recommend this company to anyone!
Susan Keegan
I cannot say enough positive things about the team at Dean Cabinetry. Everyone on the team was extremely professional and worked tirelessly to ensure that the vision for my custom kitchen remodel was perfect. At our first meeting John came to my house to see the space and floor plan. He asked questions, truly listened to what was important to me and made suggestions to maximize the functionality of the space. Paul and Brooke were fabulous with the design - ensuring all the features and customizations were there to make the kitchen exactly what I wanted. The install team did an amazing job ensuring the cabinets were perfect, setting up the drawers, shelves, and hardware and answering all my questions. I was so pleased with my kitchen that Dean Cabinetry also created a vanity for my master bath remodel. Their positive, can-do attitude, attention to detail and focus on customer satisfaction made every member of the team a pleasure to work with. I am so thankful for everyone at Dean Cabinetry that I cannot recommend them enough.
Valarie Simpson
This was by far the best experience in the home renovation that we did. The kitchen cabinets were measured to perfection, when they were installed they went into the space without any adjustments needing to be made. The quality and the craftsmanship of the cabinets were excellent. It would recommend Dean Cabinetry to anyone.Sincerely,Val
Erin Taylor
They helped us throughout the entire process, clearly explained the different options available at different price points. We had a vision and they helped us execute it beyond our expectations. They recommended a general contractor they were comfortable with and he was a perfect fit for us. We only recommend Dean Cabinetry to our friends and family.
Rick Butler
My husband and I worked with Dean Cabinetry in Bolton, CT during the construction of our new home. From our first meeting with owner and designer, Leah Dean, it was clear that our project would be in good hands. Leah was prepared, professional, and knowledgeable. She was ready with the layout of our kitchen and bathrooms so the process went very smoothly. In addition, Leah met with us post installation to discuss the finished project. Of all the vendors we worked with--Dean Cabinetry stood out above all the others. We would highly recommend Dean Cabinetry for all your cabinet needs.
Anne Mormina
I am not sure there are enough words to convey how much we absolutely love the cabinets we received from Dean Cabinetry. From start to finish they helped us turn our West Hartford house into our forever home!We were first introduced to Dean by our contractor Jason Levesque who recommended them over all other cabinet companies in the area. After our first meeting with Leah we knew this was who we wanted to go with. She listened to all of our wants/needs and took the time to really understand the look we were going for as well as the budget we had in mind. She then led us to Paul who helped us with the design of our kitchen. We went with a semi-custom Kith-Eudora cabinet for our renovation. ( full kitchen and 2 baths) Paul was able to help us get that custom feel without breaking the bank or making us feel that we needed to spend more in order to get what we wanted. He even went above and beyond a month after we had placed our order when we decided we wanted to add a small pantry cabinet that he was able to order and get in on time with the rest of the cabinetry. There was never a "that can't happen" attitude, it was always a "let me see how we can make that happen" attitude. He truly went above and beyond to make our cabinets everything we could have wanted.After designing and ordering with Paul, we then were introduced to Kevin with the install team. He explained exactly how the install would happen and all the details of what we needed to know and have in order for the install to take place. He was always readily available to answer any questions. On the day of install Keaton and his partner were beyond professional and very thorough, any issues that they saw they fixed right away or made sure to make note so that they could come back and fix it at a later date. There were so many little details that I would have missed if it were not for both of them noticing and taking pride to make sure that everything was perfect. Lastly, after the final punch list was reviewed and everything was fixed I was emailed by Kevin to make sure I was happy with everything and to also check up about a special partition I had mentioned to Keaton about in one of the cabinets. It was a little extra something that I didn't know if it was even possible to do, but Kevin asked me what I was looking for and said it was no issue and could have someone out there that day to make my dream kitchen complete.The whole team at Dean cabinetry is really just amazing from start to finish. They listen to their clients and truly take pride in all of their work. We are beyond happy with how everything turned out and can't wait to host the team for cocktails at our new 9 foot island! Thank you again to you and your team for being a part of creating our forever home!~Anne and Joey Mormina
Melissa Bauman
Everyone on the team at Dean Cabinetry, from owner to designer to installer, was wonderful to work with. I initially chose to use them when John looked around my house and picked up on my design aesthetic and used that to help with the design of the kitchen. He listened and observed and helped the rest of the team design my dream kitchen. Leah and Paul happily worked out all of the finishing details with me, and Jay and the rest of the installation crew always showed up with smiles. I’m planning on hiring them again to build new cabinetry for my bathrooms!
Mark Winzler
I always tend to use businesses where I know the people. Such was the case with Dean Cabinetry. A little over a decade ago, I was Superintendent of the Bolton Schools and John Dean was on the Board of Education. It was clear from my first meeting that John was honest, caring, wanting the best for the district, open and respectful. Above all, John was selfless and trustworthy.Hence, when I made the decision to remodel the main living area of my house (3 rooms into one large open room) and "gut" the kitchen, I knew automatically that I wanted Dean Cabinetry to take care of everything associated with the cabinets.For me, the cost and price were irrelevant. What mattered was that I knew that I was going to be working with someone who would stand behind the project.Every single interaction I had with John, his wife Leah and others who work for Dean Cabinetry was positive and professional. Cabinetry is far from my area of expertise and hence I totally relied on the knowledge, professionalism and work of the Dean Cabinetry team. To say the least, they did not disappoint!Just a short time ago Leah Dean came over and met with me to check in about how things went, asked how things could improve, etc. Tell me, how many other businesses so that? That alone sets them apart from others.Dean Cabinetry received my most enthusiastic recommendation, without reservation or qualification. They are, in fact, the "real deal". I urge you to contact them. You will not be disappointed! I would use them again in a heartbeat!

John and Leah are wonderful to work with. From the design process, creative ideas, and the installation process. They do the little things well which is most important: they care about their clients, provide high quality cabinets, and even better support. Throughout the planning and installation they were there to help with ideas that we had to make sure our dream kitchen became a reality. I work with a lot of businesses in real estate and I am confident enough to put my name on Dean Cabinetry and recommend them further. Keep up the great work!-Scott Hollister
Donna Baker
During some recent renovations in our office Dean Cabinetry help us to create and build a custom kitchen space and custom work stations with storage areas. The custom builds are beautiful and durable for our office space. Loved working with all their staff.
Joe C
We had a fantastic experience working with Dean Cabinetry. Dean took care of all the custom cabinetry for our kitchen and mudroom renovation. Dean’s process is great. From initial contact, to design meetings, to installation, you know exactly what to expect at each step. Dean’s years of experience in the industry is clear. I recommend them highly.
Thomas Monahan
Outstanding showroom. Very professional staff.

I recently dealt with Dean Cabinetry at the recommendation of my contractor. I was highly impressed with their professionalism and their willingness to work with me on changes I made during the project. They were honest about the wait time (everything is delayed in these days of Covid) but it arrived when they said it would.Dean Cabinetry was extremely pleasant and responsive to deal with and I would highly recommend them for any projects that require cabinets.
Thomas Hartzog
My wife and I remodeled our entire kitchen with new cabinets and a center bar area with Dean cabinetry and would highly recommend them.After meeting with Paul and Leah and expressing our needs, they designed the entire space with functionality and maximized our limited space with great style. Any issues that came up were dealt with immediately and we were very satisfied with the attention we received. The quality and cost of the remodeling was very reasonable and we give Dean Cabinetry and there team 5 stars! If available, please see the before and after pictures. Outstanding!Sincerely, Tom and Maureen Hartzog
2021 Update: 3 + years later I contacted Leah at Dean Cabinetry with a question. Leah had Kevin from the installation team reach out to me and he offered up a perfect solution. What excellent customer service, highly recommend Dean Cabinetry. Thank you Leah and Kevin.2017 - When building a new house our builder sent us to Dean Cabinetry for our kitchen and bathroom choices. Our first impression was the appearance of their showroom, very neat, so organized and displayed a substantial variety from which to choose from. Then we met Leah with whom we worked with throughout the whole process. Leah is very professional and knowledgeable and worked with us in creating the kitchen and bathrooms we wanted, making suggestions along the way with no pressure whatsoever. Leah listen to what we wanted and helped us get the designs we requested. We would definitely recommend visiting Dean Cabinetry if you are looking for great service and professionalism throughout your experience.

I just wanted to take time to write you and say how amazing it’s been working with them! With Covid we’ve had a lot of issues getting things on time communicating with people and just working with companies in general. In almost every situation we have felt like even know we were hiring these ppl and companies to do things for us, we ended up fixing problems they made or holding their hand through the process because people dropped the ball, but you all were the exception to that and that was extremely amazing at such a stressful time. I was able to know I could count on the timeframes I was given and plan around them accordingly and that was so refreshing after everything we had been told from any other cabinet companies.To start, you were a great introduction and set the tone for the project! The beginning phone call was super helpful and informative and I loved the email you guys sent and the discovery phase. I felt like we were always on the same page from the beginning to the end and I never had to question for more than a couple hours any thing that came to mind because your whole team was so on top of their game.Shawn is amazing at what he does and has great attention for detail! Any question I had big or small was answered, always the same day, if not within a few hours and any request I had was never a silly one. He was happy to give his opinion based on experiences and help me figure out anything I was unsure of. It was such an enjoyable experience to design the kitchen with him.Kevin was great at setting up delivery and working with us to set up dates based on our tight dates. Especially working with all the snow, as well as hvac needing to coordinate on dates as well! Also as the team was installing their was a lot of back and forth and changes on my end for my arrival and hvac and he kept everyone on the same page which was great!Lastly, Mike and Ben were great with install! We realized their was an issue with how the window was framed on our end shortly after I arrived and mike quickly came up with a solution. He also worked seamlessly with the electrician and hvac to make sure everything that needed to work and go in certain places, did! Again any question I had was answered and any suggestion I had was never a silly one. The cabinets looked great when they were all set and having the counters installed just made it all come to together! It was an amazing experience through and through.

The folks at Dean Cabinetry were a pleasure to work with during my kitchen remodeling project, and I can't say enough about how happy I was with my experience from beginning to end. They listened carefully to what I hoped to achieve, and made recommendations that fit my budget and vision. Every appointment was on time, and the design, delivery and installation process all proceeded without a hitch. A few minor finishing touches needed after the job were attended to cheerfully and promptly. I recommend them without hesitation.

The professionals at Dean Cabinetry made the remodel of our kitchen absolutely stress free. The process was 100% positive from start to finish. We remodeled to ready our home for resale and it turned out amazing. We will be selling soon as we just purchased our new home. Dean cabinetry are the first people I called to build me another dream kitchen. I am so looking forward to working with their team again.

Dean was recommended by a friend who had used them for a bigger and more expensive project. I went in , was very impressed, and liked their approach to my kitchen project. Worked with Paul who was very knowledgeable and helpful. From start to finish they were attentive, thorough , and dependable. Installation went great and they just finished off a small punch list delayed months due to new appliance delays. I heartily recommend them to those considering kitchen remodeling.
Teri Mitchell
We would highly recommend Dean Cabinetry. John Dean is very professional, knowledgeable and easy to work with. We had a unique space to work with and changed the layout in the kitchen a few times. The cabinets came out beautiful, as well as the master bath vanity.

The best decision my wife and I made when remodeling our kitchen was to go to Dean Cabinetry before using a big box store or other specialty cabinet place. Not only is the quality above anything we would have received from one of the other stores, but the price for Dean's custom cabinet's came in lower. John Dean and his team were on time, on budget, professional and provided top notch customer service. Very happy with them and we are using them for mudroom cabinets!
Jerry Porter
I came to see Leah based on my architect's recommendation after some disappointment with my original pick for custom cabinet design, construction, and installation. I have been extremely pleased with Dean's service, attention to detail, and quality workmanship. My kitchen turned out even better than I had envisioned it, substantially because of the magic Leah and Paul performed turning our conversations and my less than articulate description of what I was hoping for into a wonderful quartersawn oak reality. I am only sorry I have but one kitchen to remodel!

As a do-it-yourself-er I worked with a local kitchen designer near me to help me with my kitchen design & renovation. This process actually went very well however they didn’t offer residential installations. After the cabinets arrived I was a bit overwhelmed with the aspect of doing the installation myself; hanging boxes, leveling, crown moldings, base moldings, light rails, handles and door pulls and of course having all the right tools. It was my good fortune to find Dean Cabinetry located in Bolton, CT as they offer installation only services. I spoke with their staff, sent them my design and they quickly responded that they could do the installation for me. I can’t say enough about how well the installation went. Keaton was on time, had a trailer that could have been seen on This Old House and was well-equipped with all the necessary tools of the trade. Even better he was polite and professional. In less than a work day the installation was completed without a single issue and was installed as if it was his kitchen. I would definitely recommend you reach out to Dean Cabinetry before you take on this installation task yourself. You will likely be pleasantly surprised with the cost and the outcome.

My wife and I are delighted with the results of our 2020 kitchen renovation project, and a large part of the credit is due to the involvement of Dean Cabinetry.This is the second house in which I have renovated the kitchen. For the first renovation project, I purchased cabinets from one of the big Home Center stores. The major benefit I experienced between working with Dean Cabinetry and what I would expect my experience would be working with a Home Center again is in the amount of kitchen design assistance that Dean provided.Getting the design right is clearly very important. We had a general idea of what we wanted to do, but the design needs to be detailed. We met with Leah Dean four or five times over a two month period, and made changes to the design several times. An early design used a free standing range, but later we decided we would rather make room for a wall oven with a separate cook top. The dining area adjacent to the kitchen would be too tight for an occasional dinner with many guests, so we wanted an island with wheels so that it could be moved to allow more seating. Dean’s designer, Lauren, provided dimensioned layouts and 3D renderings of each of the design iterations. The 3D renderings were particularly helpful in deciding to choose a blue color for the base cabinets with white wall cabinets.The cabinet quality and installation was very good. I do woodworking as a hobby, and have built some cabinets over the years. The close fit of the doors and drawers on the frameless cabinets we chose is quite impressive to me. Everything works as it supposed to.Dean also helpfully suggested some suppliers for counter tops, flooring, and appliances that they knew some of their other customers had good experiences with. For each of these items, we ended up using one of the recommended suppliers.We have been living with our new kitchen for several months now, and have not found anything that we wished was done differently. One drawer needed to be adjusted almost immediately, and Dan, one of the installers came back and took care of it. Our complete experience working with Dean Cabinetry has been excellent, and I recommend them for a kitchen renovation project.
Marcus Brennan
We highly recommend the Dean Cabinetry team! Our kitchen remodel was executed beautifully! Leah and Brooke were attentive to our vision; and Jay elevated our design, worked efficiently and quickly with the overall installation. Additionally, the pricing options were straight forward and everyone communicated consistently, and well! We couldn’t be more thrilled with our end results!

If you are looking for both high quality cabinets and a specialized design process that meets your exact needs at an affordable price, Dean Cabintry is the best choice bar none. No one comes close to the quality, experience and customization you will get with this company.After visiting two other retailers who specialize in kitchen remodels, my Wife and I stopped in the Dean showroom one day where Leah welcomed us. We started discussing our needs and budget. We spent time giving her our basic vision as well as picking out cabinet styles and colors. Leah took everything into consideration including the lighting, kitchen floor plan, counters, appliances and our goal. Later that week Leah emailed us different price options which were well within budget and competitive with companies that will give you lesser quality, cookie cutter cabinets. A few days later Leah designed a CAD graphic of an entire new kitchen for us that far exceeded what we thought was possible. Those drawings were even used to guide our contractor, plumber and electrician as well as the counter company which Dean referred us too and saved us more money.Several members of the Dean team made 2 visits to my house to verify measurements and help make adjustments as needed. Leah was the mastermind of the configuration and put a lot of work and time in. The installers were precicise and done in 2 days. During the install, Dean visited to ensure we were satisfied with the progress and inspected the cabinets with a fine tooth comb. Any slight blemish which there were barely any, she had replaced and made perfect right away. The installers were very nice and were able to make small adjustments and answer any questions we had.After everything was said and done including counter and appliance installation, Leah returned to do a final inspection and spend a considerable amount of time with me to review the process and get real feedback from me.Nowhere will you get the time and dedication that Dean Cabintry gives their customers. I rarely write reviews but this is one of the best customer service experiences I've had and had to share. Afterall, the Google reviews are what brought me into the showroom.Thank you again to Leah, John, Brooke, Jay and Paul for the amazing experience.
Cindy Harrigan
The team at Dean Cabinetry worked with us during our build to help make the most of our kitchen and the space we were working with. We have an open floor plan and love to entertain so fitting in the largest island possible was key. As the project unfolded they worked with us to tweek often to maximize our storage and provided advice for layout, materials and design. The on-site team that did the install were on time, courteous and detail oriented! Such an easy experience for us. We love our kitchen and had them back for adjustments after more settling and they took the time to ensure we were happy with the results! Our kitchen is the family hub. It allows many of us to be together visiting while others are preparing and cooking. What could be better? We highly recommend Dean Cabinetry!Cindy Harrigan & Steve Minicucci

We can not thank Dean Cabinetry enough for bringing our visions to life with our dream kitchen. The process was smooth, timely and the attention to detail shows in the finished product. Their entire team listened to our needs and wants and even gave additional advice/suggestions in areas we were unsure. We could not be more pleased with the outcome. Thank you so much dean cabinetry!!
Ann Azevedo
Dean Cabinetry filled in last minute when our original cabinet maker abruptly closed. Honestly, it was a blessing in disguise, because Leah and the other people at Dean were a pleasure to work with, offered many helpful suggestions, and got us quickly back on our way. The cabinets and the install were great and professionally done. Highly recommend!
Abby Kilgore
I can’t recommend these folks enough. Not only is their product top notch and at reasonable price but they are so enjoyable to work with. As a contractor I work with them all the time and every interaction leaves me smiling. They’re great people, run a great business and produce a great product. Highly recommend!
Erik H
Wonderful people, beautiful products. They have been very helpful getting our kitchen cabinets designed and ordered.
Bryan Bonadies
We experienced Dean Cabinetry for our kitchen redo years ago so choosing them for our bathroom vanity replacement was a no-brainer. Each job was done with ease from design to installation. Professionalism and quality results can be expected every time. Their attention to design details and the high quality of material and workmanship reflect the essence of custom cabinetry we have come to appreciate working with them.
Melissa Zaparanick
I was thinking the other day that its been about a year since we had our kitchen replaced. I never did write a review. Honestly, I have never spent more time in my kitchen than I have in the last 2 months and am so utterly in love with the design of the space, the color and quality of the cabinets I chose and the light that comes in since we took the wall down.  Considering the quarantine right now, we spend an enormous amount of time at the island doing school work, art projects and eating meals and I absolutely love it. Dean Cabinetry did an awesome job for us and I increasingly appreciate it every day. I appreciate all they did for us and I cannot imagine what this time would be like if we hadn't spent the time and money last year making it beautiful.
Madeline Deveran
I had an exceptional experience doing business with Dean Cabinetry. My first contact was Leah she made me feel like I never had to leave the showroom during our first visit together. Lauren designed my cabinets which was excellent and then the emails back and forth between me, my contractor and Dean Cabinetry were met in a timely manner. The finished product? Just lovely. I absolutely love my new Kitchen including the cabinets and I’m spending more time in the kitchen cooking. As a senior almost ready for meals-on-wheels that’s saying something. Thank you Dean Cabinetry, Leah and Lauren!Madeline D.
Susan Barzottini
I am happy we chose Dean Cabinetry for our recent kitchen remodel. I wanted to use a local company, and Dean came highly recommended. Dean worked with our budget and gave us several options from custom, semi-custom, to stock cabinets. They spent many hours talking with me and planning out every detail. The final result was exactly what we hoped for. Leah, Lauren, Brooke, and Paul are an awesome team who spent time on every detail of the plan and were always available to answer questions and share their ideas.
Tom Quinlan
We were impressed the minute we walked in the door. Very professional and they listened to our needs and provided their expert advice. Cabinets look Great!
Albert Levesque
We had Dean Cabinetry design custom cherry cabinets our kitchen. The project went very well from start to finish. The initial contact and follow up during the project was excellent. A high quality product was delivered at a reasonable cost. We did ask for a few special modifications including a moveable island that could be secured in place as needed. These were delivered as requested. Our total kitchen demo to completion was done in 7 weeks thanks to Dean Cabinetry. We would highly recommend them to complete other kitchen projects! Al & Bob

Updating your kitchen is one of the great things you can do for your house. In our case, it is the family and social center, but it was very outdated.I contacted Dean Cabinetry after an awful kitchen fire gutted our kitchen and porch. And though I had a very tight insurance and personal budget, Leah Dean made it immediately clear that she could work within our financial guidelines. It also became evident that she had the knowledge, imagination and project manage skills to make it happenFollowing measurements and a lot of good discussion, Dean Cabinetry came up with a design that perfectly fit our layout, needs and budget. The carpenter was excellent, the Deans’ follow up was efficient and everything came out even better than I imagined.For a lot of good reasons, My son and I call this “ Leah’s kitchen.” I’d hire them back in a snap and enthusiastically recommend them to anyone interested in making their kitchen beautiful.

We had a very positive experience working with Dean Cabinetry for kitchen cabinets, vanities, and closets during our new home construction. After ideations with a number of kitchen designers, we felt not satisfied in meeting our expectations. We then found Dean Cabinetry online. At our first visit to John and Leah’s office on our wish list and a new round of ideation, their customer focus, candor, multiple design offerings impressed us, we made rather quick decision to work with them, and selected “custom inset style” for kitchen cabinets. John communicated with us responsively during the contract drafting, and visited the construction site multiple times for measurement, color matching and problem solving. We had a common goal and worked together toward it effectively and collegially. In addition, all Dean Cabinetry staff has done excellent job in installation, post-installation adjustment and service. The finished products in our new home received praises from friends and visitors. Therefore, we have no hesitation to recommend Dean Cabinetry to whomever having the need for new cabinets or remodeling.
Alexa Biron
We are thrilled with our new kitchen and couldn't be more impressed by the Dean Cabinetry team. They patiently answered our questions and were attentive to details. It's clear that they love what they do and it's important to them that you love your kitchen. While we didn't expand the footprint of our kitchen, we have newfound extra space, because it works better for us than our original kitchen!
Nicole O'Connor
We really love the quality and look of our cabinets -- They fit perfectly in our kitchen and really help create a cozy yet open and airy space that we are so excited to share with our family and friends. The Dean Cabinetry team made it easy to design and bring our ideas to life!
Yael Marra
We are so happy with our new cabinets from dean cabinetry & working with them was such a pleasurable experience. They listened to all of wants & needs and stayed in our budget. We will absolutely use them again in the future!!
David Reale
Dean Cabinetry was a pleasure to work with when we decided it was time to replace our kitchen cabinetry. We talked to several other distributors and contractors but none of them made us feel as comfortable as the Dean Cabinetry people to work with.They worked with our budget and provided several different options for design and cabinetry products. The work they did, including re-designing the soffits in the kitchen to make our chosen design fit, was excellent, from the carpentry, cabinet installation and lighting installation. There were no surprises. There were no cost overruns. They delivered exactly what we expected and did so in a timely manner. We couldn't be happier with our new kitchen. I highly recommend this family run business for any kitchen design and installation needs.David R.- Manchester, CT
Kat Gonzalez
John Dean and company were very attentive to what I was looking for in cabinets, and exceeded my expectations, timewise and with quality. I would highly recommend.
Susan Vining
John and Leah are absolutely wonderful to work with! They really LISTEN to what you want and provide practical and creative solutions. We did not use custom cabinetry but everyone thinks we did! We are thrilled with the results and highly recommend Dean Cabinetry!
Kate Bradford
When shopping around for our kitchen remodel, we were laughed at by two other local companies when I provided our budget. Having never gone through a renovation of this size before, I assumed my only choices were to compromise on quality, or to burden ourselves with a heavy loan. Fortunately we stopped by Dean Cabinetry instead. First impressions make a big difference to me, so when we pulled in as the shop was closing, I figured this was a no deal. Paul greeted us warmly and reopened their showroom for us, I assumed just to take a number down with a rushed promise to call us back. Instead he took his time after hours to go over product samples, pictures, and most importantly, listened patiently to our ideas. Our whole experience with Dean Cabinets and their step by step process to our gorgeous new kitchen felt fluid and effortless. Leah and Brooke were prompt to return all questions we had (and we had many!) and never rushed us. We were able to stay within our budget while also adding a few extra features that I hadn’t expected to be able to afford, like our beautiful farmhouse sink. The attentiveness and quality you will receive from working with Dean Cabinetry will not disappoint, and I would recommend them to anyone who might be seeking a personalized experience with their remodel.

Dean Cabinetry created customized built-in cabinets and desk for my home office. I am over the moon. Their design services were amazing and everything was on time! Thank you very much for transforming my home! I honestly can't rave more about the service I received. The designer Karen worked with me to refine my design and came out to my home to take final measurements and make sure nothing was missing. In fact on the day of the installation, I realized there was one thing I hadn't thought of and they made the changes there on the fly. My office is so gorgeous I just love working in it. Most of all I love that they made the desk to exactly my specifications so that I don't have shoulder pain anymore after long days of working at my computer. I think it is also important to note that everything was delivered on time and exactly according to the budget!!
Karen Cimino
Had a WONDERFUL experience with the staff at Dean Cabinetry! They were very knowledgeable and helpful with the design of our kitchen. I appreciated the continuous email updates & timing of order.
Tricia Hasselman
I highly recommend Dean Cabinetry. The quality of the cabinets is second to none. And, I was able to customize cabinets for a bar and for a bathroom to my exact vision and specifications. The team is knowledgeable, consultative and customer service oriented. I worked with Karen and Paul on design. They were phenomenal. Jay did our installation. He was extremely careful and was focused on making sure we were happy. I will most definitely call Leah and John when we redo our kitchen and master bath.
Christina Lauzon
Leah & Karen & and the whole team at Dean Cabinetry did such an amazing job with my kitchen from start to finish. I was upgrading our 1960s kitchen and had a specific idea of what I wanted everything to look like. The team took my ideas and surpassed what I could have imagined. They showed me all sorts of pricing, layout and design options, and worked with me to achieve my desired look. All phone, email, and in-person communications were extremely prompt and courteous. The team kept me updated with any order issues and delays, and the installation was clean and quick. From walking in to the shop, to cabinet installation took 6 weeks and I could not be happier!!! We will definitely use again for future bathroom and laundry room project we already have planned.Thank you team!!Christina L.
