Kelowna Kitchen Cabinets Need Fit and Function

Renovating Kelowna kitchen cabinets is one of the ways we use our millwork expertise to beautify homes. Our experience is that in the majority of the homes we see, the kitchen cabinetry is not working for three main reasons:

  1. The types of cabinets selected do not meet the needs of the homeowners
  2. The fit of the cabinets is poor
  3. The layout of the cabinets is not ideal for the space

Cabinet Types

Standard, off-the-shelf cabinet selections straight from the factory do not allow the homeowner to incorporate unique needs to their kitchen. Want more drawers? Need deeper drawers? You don’t have to be at the mercy of the catalogue selections.

Custom cabinet design allows you to have the exact type of cabinet you need, where you need it. There are many of the same types of things in a kitchen, but let’s face it... the items you own are not exactly the same as your neighbor’s. So it makes sense that you’ll need different types of cabinets to store them. The right cabinet choice in the kitchen makes a big difference to your satisfaction with your kitchen.

Cabinet Fit

Do you know how some cabinet installers make sure the cabinet fits? They install the cabinets and then insert filler pieces to cover the gaps. We operate differently. We measure the space and build the cabinets to fit perfectly around the appliances to make the most of the space available.

Custom cabinets allow us to make the most of the areas that typically are wasted such as the space around microwaves, refrigerators, and corners. Great fit is more appealing visually too. Kelowna kitchens often boast amazing views of the lake and mountains. The cabinetry can (and in our opinion should) be just as gorgeous. Unsightly gaps, cheap looking filler pieces or improper fit can be avoided with custom solutions.

Cabinet Layout

We don’t just have building experience, we have extensive design experience. Bringing us in at the beginning of a kitchen renovation project gives you added expertise in analyzing your space so your cabinet selections make the most of the layout of your kitchen.

Are you taller than average? Shorter? Handicapped or have other physical challenges? With custom cabinetry you are not bound by the standard cabinet heights. We can add or take away to the cabinet height so the cabinets fit your needs exactly.

Our Kelowna kitchen renovation customers are thrilled with the difference the cabinet fit and layout makes to the everyday function of their kitchens. Give us a call to set up a meeting for your next kitchen renovation project.
