It’s All About The Details – Custom Cabinetry

When it comes to cabinetry, there are so many opportunities to customize your own project. Here at Copperstone, we like to work with custom cabinetry if our clients have the budget. Custom cabinets allow us to squeeze in additional storage (we always need more storage, right?), or simply to get the exact look we’re going for.

Benefits to Using Custom Cabinetry

There are so many benefits to having a custom fit. You can see examples of how we’ve used custom cabinetry in the photos below.

1. Sizing to Avoid Wasted Space

We can order cabinetry in any size we want – up to 1/16th of an inch. This means less wasted space in fillers and is particularly helpful if your space is an odd shape or on the small side.

2. Colours

We have hundreds of standard stain and paint colours and we can even colour match a Benjamin Moore paint colour to find just the right shade.

3. Wood Varieties

We have different wood species that we work with and can specify things like what direction we want the woodgrain to run.

4. The Biggie – Storage

There are a plethora of storage solutions that require very specific cabinetry specs. We can source and pair the right solutions for you:

  • Corner cabinet pullouts
  • Garbage/recycling solutions
  • Vegetable bins
  • Tray storage
  • Concealed knife blocks
  • Concealed lighting
  • Pull-down, pull-up, and slide-out mechanisms … and many more!

The options we have at Copperstone with custom cabinetry means we can create something unique and just for you. This will manifest both in aesthetic design as well as functional storage that will work well for however YOU use your space.

Using Custom Cabinetry to Solve Design Problems…Or Just Because They Look Great

Here are a few examples of how we’ve used custom cabinetry in our design solutions for our clients.

Moorcroft Project – A series of magazine/book shelves gave us an opportunity to take an awkward edge and create an ever-changing point of interest. It became a central communication point for the family, who use this area to drop off bills and to leave messages for each other. To see more of this kitchen click Here

It’s All in the Details

Sometimes it’s a little tweak to the design to create visual balance on each side of the room or choosing a cabinetry colour that’s a shade darker that can make all the difference to a final design.

No matter what type of renovation project you have in mind, working with a designer that has an eye for detail can make all the difference in the final result.

To create something exceptional, your mindset must be relentlessly focused on the smallest detail.
