Welcome to Planning Your Project Part 2 of 2. If you have not completed part 1 of 1, please go back to here
In part 1 of 2, we discussed the different cabinet types, dimensions, pricing differences and basic terminology. We gathered the measurements for your project, chosen the cabinet look/style and discussed Color Scheme. It's time to move on to other items to choose and information to gather before making your appointment with us. So, let's get back to the mission...Let's Go!
You need to choose the style of door and drawer fronts that you like
Doors and Drawer Front Style
Okay, now let's discuss the door and drawer front style. In reality the door and drawer front style has already been 99% chosen for you. Remember when we discussed "Cabinet Style" in part 1 ? Well, you pretty much made up your mind for the styles of doors and drawer fronts at that time. Now all you have to do is choose which of the various styles that are in the category of the Cabinet Style you chose. That was easy, now wasn't it?...What?....Where are the door styles located? We got you covered on that one.
We order our doors from a wholesale manufacturer of high quality cabinet doors. Conestoga Wood Specialties is the leading custom wood cabinet door and components manufacturer in the world. They have been manufacturing quality wood doors and components since 1964. It is no wonder that with our high quality casework standards that we chose to partner with them to manufacture all the doors and drawer fronts used in our casework.
At Conestoga Wood Specialties you can search by styles and wood specie to find just what you like. So what are you waiting for, let's go over there and see what they have and more importantly, see what you like.
Oh, I forgot...If you are using Internet Explorer or Firefox, ignore the "scripts" warning if they appear...You are safe.
Got your door and drawer front style chosen? Ok, let's move on to the next step....Appliances, etc.
Appliances, Sinks, Fixtures and other items
You are almost done, we need to address the items that will be incorporated into your design and cabinets.
What is a kitchen or vanity cabinets without a sink or appliances, right? Well for proper placement of cabinets and openings of any cabinets, we need to know what you are going to put in and around them. So, let's address this now.
You will need to choose your kitchen, bath or other items that will need to be addressed during design and estimation. Now we can post links all day long to these items, but you know what you want and what brands you like and you don't need us to tell you that. If however you'd like to discuss any of these with us, please call or email us your questions. We have seen just about every item out there, so we are more than happy to help you if needed.
When choosing your items, don't forget to get the model number and manufacturer of the items. These are very important when doing a design and making sure that everything is built to the right clearances. Bring these with you when you visit us or we visit you. If you are going to email us all of the aforementioned information, don't forget to include this section.
