Designing Custom Cabinets for Usability

Kitchen Remodel


Opening and closing a cabinet door may seem like a mindless task. After all, most homeowners spend a vast amount of time in their kitchen, sorting through drawers, rifling through shelves, and reorganizing impossibly deep cabinets. Even those who aren’t currently in love with their kitchen cabinets may no longer give a second thought to the small annoyances they face every day when storing, sorting, and using their cabinet space. However, imagine for a moment that your kitchen cabinetry works seamlessly in your space, not only providing an element of design that ties your entire home together, but was effortless to use with everything stored in an ideal location of your kitchen. With the help of our cabinet experts at Euro Design Build, we can turn what felt impossible into a reality.

Why Choose Custom Cabinetry?

There’s truly no wonder why so many homeowners tire of the typical builder grade (built by a local cabinet shop) and outdated cabinets turning to custom design and built cabinetry instead. Cabinets that no longer fit your needs or design aesthetics not only keep a kitchen from feeling cohesive, but keeps you from enjoying such an integral area of a home, the kitchen after all is the heart of any home and used more often than any other room in your house. Our design team believes that even the smallest detail or element can enhance the experiences you have in your kitchen, and the reverse of that is truer still. It’s difficult to strike an ideal balance between design, form and function. We see too often the issues that happen by choosing one over the other. We’re here to help you create that balance with custom designs that are built for you, your specific home, and your lifestyle.

Simplify, Organize and Personalize your kitchen space

Yes, you can think of a cabinet as simple as a small storage container, but what if it could be more? And each corner of a space to be simplified, optimized and organized for the exact way you want to use the space as you live in your home.  By providing options that cater to your needs and simply to the standards of designs, we find ways to give you the trifecta of the look, quality, and functionality.

Custom cabinets from a quality manufacturer are built and designed specifically for your space; builder grade is not.

Most builder grade cabinets leave a kitchen space feeling disorganized, the user frustrated and not eager to go back to the kitchen to cook. The issue with builder grade cabinets is unplanned layouts, no organizational systems and plenty of unused space and poor quality of cabinet construction. This isn’t always a noticeable issue at first glance since most cabinet doors, drawer fronts and stiles are built using real wood and are finished on the spot to look great, that is until you try to use the space, and then, you find yourself in a space that feels disorganized and a challenge to use when you need it the most, when you prepare a meal.  What good is a kitchen that looks good but doesn’t function well?

The advantage of custom cabinetry is the concept of designing the kitchen space rather than just adding cabinetry that will simply fit well enough. No more wasted space, odd unfunctional corners, or unsightly gaps. The end result of a custom cabinetry in a kitchen is a seamless, fitted look and feel where every inch of a space is used with a purposeful meaning.

Manufactured Cabinets have come along way and can be customized to suit your needs.

When it comes down to it, our team takes absolute care to create designs for kitchen cabinets to be constructed of the highest standards, one’s that will perform for years to come. We take craftsmanship seriously and have a dedicated process for doing so. As homeowners ourselves, we understand that the devil is in the smallest details and most unique dedicated touches. From water-based dies, stains, and conversion varnish finishes, your cabinetry can stand as an anchor point in your kitchen while still being useful for everyday use. Whether you dream of a traditional wood cabinet with bold finishes or a modern handle-less design, in the end, crafting means creating design and functionalities that work for you.

Handcrafted for Function and Design

Through design, we analyze how best to utilize cabinet space in your kitchen. Where we optimize the best solution to store pots and pans? How might we best store dry goods and storage containers? The biggest issue that most homeowners find with stock cabinetry is the lack of organizational space. Standard cabinets rarely ever allow for simple use of space, and function rather by using open spaces with poorly planned shelving. Standard shelves in base cabinets don’t take the homeowner’s daily usage or aging in place into account. Designing custom pieces gives the homeowner the chance to think about how their kitchen space will work for them now and in the future as they age. Designing is a highly personal experience, and each homeowner deserves the chance to conceptualize inlays, rollouts, and shelving just as they’d use them now or 20 years from now. With the help of myself and our creative team, we can make your dream kitchen a reality.

We look forward to solving your biggest kitchen cabinetry problems.
