A Custom Kitchen with Full Inset Cabinets painted with a high quality Low VOC Acrylic Lacquer. The kitchen was custom designed and built by Best Cabinets. The customer wanted to maximize space and therefore wrapped the cabinets around the wall and into custom bookcases. Also, the client wanted to have a larger island with a sink and dishwasher in this area. The custom kitchen was designed with many drawers, rollout trays and pantry for additional storage. The customer opted to have exposed hinges on the perimeter of the kitchen with concealed hinges on the kitchen island. Also, we custom matched the white the customer was using to paint other areas of the house. The Full Inset Cabinets are the most popular cabinets we design and build!

Located in the Ukranian Village neighborhood of Chicago, this kitchen was designed, built and installed for a local Restaurateur. The kitchen is of traditional style and made of Solid Cherry Wood Raised Panel Doors. The customer wanted to have a “Grand Island” in which we installed large decorative legs. We also installed large Corbels and Decorative Posts around the island. (Featured in “Signature Kitchen & Bath” Magazine, Summer 2010, page 34-35)

Northbrook Kitchen

A client called and was looking to update her entire kitchen but was looking for a quality contractor that could offer Custom Cabinets, Cabinet Refacing and Complete Kitchen Remodeling Services. After discussing her options, the client explained that the other design firms she was talking to wanted to replace all her Kitchen Cabinets. After further review, Dan DeWalt the Best Cabinet Designer and Builder recommended she Install a New Custom Island and reface her 8 year old cabinets that were outdated (but still in excellent condition). She was excited about the significant savings offered from this alternative and agreed to have Best Cabinets perform the work. Dan was able to create a Beautiful Custom Kitchen for the client and the end result was the client was able to get her dream kitchen. Hence Dan has called the combination of Custom Cabinets and Cabinet Refacing a "Hybrid Kitchen". Best Cabinets acted as the General Contractor and Managed the entire Remodeling Project including the Cabnets, Countertops, Plumbing, Electrical, Tile, HVAC, Drywall.

Since 1979 Best Cabinets has been offering high quality custom cabinet and custom furniture, and is one of the few companies with an in-house sawmill. Best Cabinets owns 100 acres of wooded property in Wisconsin which allows us to carefully select trees for lumber used in our custom cabinet shop.

Once our lumber has been sawn it is air dried for a precise period of time and then moved into a dehumidifier kiln and dried to approximately 6-8% humidity which is the optimum moisture content for cabinet making
