Caring for your Custom Cabinetry

Custom cabinetry is a true luxury. Not only will customizing your cabinets give your room a refreshed and updated look, but it also gives you the functionality that you desire. Nothing is better than having all of your kitchen and bathroom cabinets in the size and locations you need them.


Design Build Consultants can design your perfect cabinets

Design Build Consultants Custom Cabinetry

We work with our clients design both kitchen and bathroom cabinetry. As design consultants, we help you lay out your room and plan your cabinet location and design so that your organizational goals are met. Not only are our cabinets functional, but they’re also beautiful. We work exclusively with cabinet builders Lakeside Cabinets for our kitchen cabinets or Bertch for our bathroom cabinets, and oversee that the cabinets are built to customized specifications in the design.

Designing your Custom Cabinets

As the homeowner, you have complete control of the style, layout and finish of your cabinets. We help you design the cabinets for your kitchen or bathroom, and then provide suggestions for the style and finish of the cabinets. Using our experience, we will provide recommendations based on what matches your room and aesthetic. But although we provide recommendations, you always have the final say when it comes to your custom cabinets.

How Do I care for my Custom Kitchen Cabinets?

It’s critical that you take care of your custom cabinets in your kitchen and bathrooms. Custom cabinetry is a large investment, and so we recommend following the steps to make sure your cabinets continue looking new.

  • Wipe off smoke residue, cooking vapors, or body oils with a damp cloth and a small amount of high-quality furniture cleaner.
  • Avoid placing small kitchen appliances under cabinets where heat or steam is directed onto cabinet surfaces.
  • To clean your custom cabinets, use a mild detergent or soap with warm water. Follow the grain of the wood when polishing
  • Do not use products with bleach, ammonia or abrasive additives. Never use scouring pads, steel wool or powdered cleaners.

Kitchen Remodeling Costs

They say the way to a man’s heart is through a delicious meal. And one way to a delicious meal is through a beautiful kitchen.


Beautiful Kitchens Improve Beauty and Livability; here is one of Design Build Consultants modern kitchen remodels

Kitchen remodeling is often at the top of every homeowner’s “wish list.” From the cabinets to the countertops, keeping your kitchen up-to-date not only keeps your cook happy, but it can also help you sell your house. Here are some costs to anticipate and returns to expect if you’re planning to remodel your kitchen:

Kitchen Remodeling Areas

A kitchen remodeling job involves updating the counter tops, cabinets and flooring. In addition, many homeowners purchase new appliances, change lighting fixtures and paint the walls to refresh an outdated kitchen.

A simple kitchen remodel can involve simply changing the counter tops or the flooring, and can cost under $10,000. The sky is the limit on costs depending on which projects you choose and the brands you select; so it’s important to set your budget and then prioritize which areas must be remodeled first. The appliances, flooring type, counter top selection and cabinetry can all impact your final cost when it comes to remodeling your kitchen.

Costs of Kitchen Remodeling

The cost of a kitchen remodeling job is influenced by the products. Lower-quality products will result in a cheaper kitchen, yet may not last as long as the higher-end products. In addition, you can save money by performing the demolition or painting work yourself, saving money from not having the work contracted out.

Breathe Easy in a Kitchen you Love

Tired of a kitchen with ugly cabinets and poorly designed drawers? Remodeling a kitchen will get you an outcome you desire. The kitchen is where most families spend a large amount of time. From eating, cooking and even doing homework on the bar, a kitchen should be one room of your home that’s comfortable and functional. A remodeled kitchen suited to the homeowner’s exact specifications will enhance the beauty and livability of the home.

Sell your Home with a Remodeled Kitchen

If you’re not planning on settling in your home, remodeling your kitchen will help you sell your house. Many buyers are attracted to a remodeled kitchen with fresh paint, new counter tops and updated flooring. In a market where buyers hold the power, it’s important to attract their attention and impress them with one of the most important rooms in the home.

Cambria Countertop Colors

One of our favorite steps in remodeling a kitchen is helping the homeowner choose new kitchen countertops. For homeowners who want a natural stone countertop that provides beauty AND safe food preparation, we recommend Cambria products.


Stone Countertops from Cambria are safe for food preparation

About Cambria Countertops

Cambria stone counter tops are stone countertops that offer beautiful designs and colors, durability and no maintenance. In addition, unlike granite countertops, stone countertops are safe for food prep since there are no porous spots where food and bacteria can hide.

The Benefits of using Cambria

Clients of Design Build Consultants who choose Cambria for their kitchen and bathroom countertops find several advantages.

Financing for Kitchen Countertops

We can offer our homeowners up to $45,000 in financing through Cambria when they choose to use stone countertops in the remodeled kitchen.

Fresh line of colors through Cambria

Cambria continues to keep their stone colors fresh and beautiful. Their new line of colors is a collection influenced by “the natural movement of water over stone.” These colors look natural, and add beauty and sophistication to a home. We love to see homeowners install beautiful countertops.

To Use Cambria

To learn more about Cambria or see their new line of colors, visit the Cambria website. You can even request that a sample be sent to your home.
