We had an incredible experience with working with Leah Dean and her team at Dean Cabinetry. Their professionalism, craftsmanship, exceptional execution and customer service made an unexpected renovation project seamless and easy. I highly recommend them to anyone!
Tracy Watson
We couldn't be more pleased with Dean Cabinetry from start to finish. The time they put in for our project was above and beyond what I could ever had expected. Exceptional service and absolutely beautiful craftmanship! Thank you to the entire Dean community!
Julie Shive
Excellent communication and quality service. Five years into our new kitchen and one of our appliance handles popped off (we are a family of 7 so lots of wear and tear!) Dean Cabinetry was able to send someone quickly to fix it while accommodating our busy schedules. Service was prompt and Keaton did a great job! Nice to know they are only a phone call away for those little touch up jobs.
Melanie Fahey
Deans Cabinetry were incredibly methodical, professional, timely and so friendly to deal with. They take the time to work with you on your vision and help create the perfect space to your budget. They run an impressive operation and have attention to detail like no other. I would thoroughly recommend them in any renovation or build scenario where you need Kitchen, Bar, Laundry or Bathroom cabinetry.
Noah Fleming
I LOVE my new kitchen. The process from start to finish could not have been more perfect. The Dean Cabinetry team worked with me every step of the way and was quick to respond to every question I had. They met my needs but also made amazing suggestion on how to layout the cabinets throughout my kitchen. Their input could not have been any better. They kept me in the loop during the development with news and updates. Paul was an amazing help as he delivered very fast responses with great feedback and suggestions. They really do care. When installing our kitchen, it did not take long at all. Not even 3 days for an entirely new kitchen! The finish is outstanding and the attention to detail is second to none. I could not be happier. This kitchen has completely changed my family’s lives. Not only with my own wants and needs for my kitchen (which Dean Cabinetry delivered on), but also using their own knowledge and experience. My kitchen flows incredibly smooth. The spice drawer they made is incredible with everything fitting in exactly how it should. I would choose the Dean Cabinetry team to do my kitchen in every life. My kitchen is perfect, EXACTLY the way I imagined.
Jared Piccolo
Great family owned company. They did a nice job on our kitchen cabinets.
Diane Shenberger
We had a great experience with Dean cabinetry for our kitchen and family room built-ins. They had good suggestions on the design side and they were on time!! The painted finish is beautiful and communication was excellent. Their installers were efficient and left the job site clean making it a pleasant experience! They have high standards and made sure every piece met these standards. I would definitely recommend them.
nicole steiner
The entire process went so well and we were very pleased with the results. I needed an installer for a small project in my home and after a web search, selected Dean Cabinetry based on reviews. My initial contact with Kevin was great because of his professionalism and integrity. His quote was very fair, he followed up several times (which is unheard of) because the shipment of our cabinetry was significantly delayed. The installer was punctual and the installation looks excellent. We would absolutely work with them again, and would be happy to refer this company!
Bill ottani
We had these beautifully crafted corner bench seats made at Dean Cabinetry. We needed to make the best use of our small kitchen and that's were Dean came in. They worked closely with us and we came up with a plan. The bench seats are twenty four inches high to accommodate the table that will be counter hieght. The seats themselves have four tops that open for storage.Keaton, our installer from Dean did an outstanding job and is a true craftsman.
Hill Newsom
The reviews are true. Excellent customer service. Our kitchen designer, Paul, was amazing to work with. Kevin from the install team was great as well. I recommend this company without hesitation.
Margaret Levasseur
We have had a great experience with Dean Cabinets. Great communication, ideas, product, install, follow up, timeframe and price too. The whole package! We highly recommend Dean.

Dean Cabinetry is amazing. We didn’t just replace cabinets but redesigned our entire kitchen. Paul was extremely helpful in the redesign, he answered every question and made suggestions based on his years of experience but in the end didn’t pressure us one way or the other. Paul also visited our home to take measurement and when the cabinets arrived everything fit perfectly, way to go Paul. All of our cabinets arrived the day before the scheduled install. Keaton our installer is awesome, he single-handedly installed all the cabinets in a day and a half, what a professional. After our countertops and floors were installed, Keaton returned to complete the finishing touches and everything looks amazing. I could not be happier with Dean Cabinetry. Not only is the Dean Cabinetry team ultra professional but surprisingly affordable as well. I highly recommend speaking with Dean Cabinetry before any kitchen renovation project regardless of your budget. Bravo Dean Cabinetry!
Ryan Pereira
I had an amazing experience working with Dean Cabinetry designing and installing the kitchen on my new build home. They have an informative step by step process that keeps you informed and involved in every step of the process from measuring your space to designing and installing the cabinetry. They are professional, responsive and thorough and make sure to follow up make sure you’re happy with the product and services. I would 100% recommend Dean Cabinetry to anyone looking to build the kitchen of their dreams!
Karen Tullson
We’re been thrilled with our new kitchen. The design process was enjoyable, with our needs met at every turn. The cabinets arrived as scheduled and our contractor had everything he needed to complete the installation. So we used them again for our bathroom remodel.
Steve Rosenberger
Dean Cabinetry designed and installed a new breakfast bar / island and completely upgraded pantry in 2021. We are enjoying these new features in our kitchen. We have received many compliments on the new cabinetry from family and friends. We recently had an issue with one of the pantry doors not completely closing. I called Leah and the same week one of the installer employees (Todd) came to fix it that same week. This was 2 years after installation. Turns out there was nothing wrong with the cabinets since a food box had fallen and it was slightly blocking closure. Todd found the problem and remedied it within 10 minutes. I am very pleased with Deans product and customer service.
We contacted Dean Cabinetry for a kitchen and pantry remodel. We could not have been more pleased with the entire process. It is apparent that this a family business that takes pride in the quality of their work and ensures customer satisfaction throughout the entire project. It was a pleasure to work with everyone at Dean. We especially appreciated Sean, Kevin, and Jake. Thanks so much. We couldn't be happier with the finished product and know that Dean Cabinetry is there to stand behind their work.

Dean Cabinetry did complete custom cabinetry for our new kitchen (part of a larger home remodel). Working with an architect (John Schroeder, AIA), Dean collaborated in design and helped us to fine tune the cabinet inside structures for maximal use. Meeting with Sean & the architects about the cabinet design and options went very well, and he was able to advise on some of those finishes and functionality.Where they really shined was through the installation team. Even through some minor hiccups, Jake and his crew rolled with the punches and worked out any on-site or material or design issues with grace. The finish work on all of our cabinets and trim is impeccable thanks to his work. Image Marble and Granite was able to come in and fit our countertop flawlessly, and Dean Cabinetry provided the butcher block island top. Lilywork Tile (Old Saybrook) did a custom backsplash, and coordinated well with Dean Cabinetry's schedule.Throughout the project the whole team was great to work with and have even made improvements to workflow since our project.
Anna Stevens
We had a wonderful experience working with Dean Cabinetry from start to finish. Our house is over an hour from Bolton but they came so highly recommended that I asked to work with them sight unseen.John Dean worked through my ideas in detail with me at the beginning, using inspiration photos and providing feedback based on his experience. He and his team were flexible and amenable whenever we had to schedule something.At the end when the cabinets were installed, I was nervous because we met some surprises when we took out the old cabinets -- John's reply was "don't worry, we'll handle whatever it is," and wow, did they! John's team was AMAZING -- super professional, dedicated craftsmen who knew exactly what they were doing, open to brainstorming creative ideas. What a relief to have them on our side!And the cabinets are everything we wanted! Amazing quality, supremely beautiful.
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.
Alysia Brown
Dean Cabinetry is a wonderful business! We had the easiest time working with the computer from beginning to end. I would highly recommend them!
wendy fitzgerald
Excellent Quality of the Fabuwood cabinets that we selected for our remodeled kitchen. Our order came in within the time given to us. Workmanship is awesome!
Cindy Adams

As they worked with us to achieve the desired results they were attentive to what we were trying to achieve. The delivery and installation was on time and everything was top quality.

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 Turkowski
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!
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!!!

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.

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.
