How to Choose the Right Custom Cabinet Company

Posted April 23, 2024

Selecting the right custom cabinet company is a crucial step in achieving the dream interior you envision. Whether you're planning a kitchen renovation, a bathroom upgrade or looking to add custom storage solutions to various spaces in your home, the choice of cabinet company plays a pivotal role.

Woodhaven has a wide variety of top brands and styles to choose from that suit your taste and budget. Let’s learn more about our process and how we can help you choose the best cabinets for your home remodeling project.

Assess Your Needs and Preferences

The first step in choosing a cabinet company is to assess your needs and preferences. This goes beyond, “I want white cabinets,” and includes specific information about the types of cabinets you want, their construction, materials, finishes, hardware and accessories.

For example, import and stock cabinets may have a more attractive price tag, but you’ll be limited in your choices, and the materials may be of lesser quality. Here at Woodhaven, we also work with brands that custom build their cabinets and use premium materials and components, such as dovetailed or doweled joints, undermount soft close drawer glides, quality soft close hinges, and have customizability with modification and accessories, etc. → this add needs to be better written!

Start by making a list and write down the features you must have, as well as the features that would be nice to have. This will make it easier to narrow down the brands that will best meet your needs and expectations.

Schedule an In-Home Consultation

The next step is to schedule an in-home consultation. The benefit in working with Woodhaven is that we carry different brands and styles, giving you a diverse selection to choose from based on your needs and budget. You’ll receive personalized attention during the visit along with tailored recommendations depending on the size and layout of your kitchen. We can also take accurate measurements during this time.

Be sure to have your list of wants and preferences on hand, as this will guide our suggestions. With semi-custom and full-custom solutions, our team can even recommend cabinets that will fit awkward spaces and corners in your kitchen. Let’s make these functional! Our clients are always surprised to see just how many options are out there to make their everyday lives easier and stylish —built-in drawer dividers, pullout tray inserts, glass doors, open shelves, carousels and more. (glass doors and open shelves don’t make life easier but they are nice to look at!)

Visit One of Our Showrooms

While it’s convenient to have a professional come to your home, take measurements and explore your options, it’s even more helpful to see things in person. Woodhaven encourages our clients to browse our online gallery for inspiration, as well as stop into one of our showrooms located in New Jersey.

When you see things up close and in person, you get to envision how your kitchen will come together with different brands of cabinets. This can be especially helpful if you require unique features, such as cabinets that can withstand the outdoor elements or textured or matte finishes. Plus, it’s easier to imagine how a specific color will look in your kitchen when you see it firsthand. Colors online and in magazines can be deceiving.

Make Your Selection

Woodhaven carries cabinets from top brands such as Medallion, Omega, Plato, 21st Century, HomeCrest, Fabuwood, Open Air and Kraftmaid. Based on your wants and preferences, we can suggest the cabinets that we think will best meet your needs and budget.

Seeing the cabinets in person also allows you to pick the best styles, finishes and hardware for your space. We are also happy to provide you with more specific information related to each brand, including their warranties and timelines. We try to make the process as seamless as possible so that you can enjoy the process of choosing a cabinet company—not dread it.

Woodhaven’s professional team is here to help you find the cabinetry that speaks to you! Contact our team today to schedule an appointment. We look forward to helping you design a kitchen that exceeds your highest expectations. Anything is possible with Woodhaven!
