We are a dealer for multiple leading cabinetry lines; each company has entry level to high-end cabinets to work with varying budgets and styles. Cabinetry varies in finishes, construction, and wood species (Alder, Walnut, Cherry, Fir, Maple, Oak, etc). We will match each project to the line that meets your style and budget.
All of our Indoor lines are manufactured in Canada, mostly in the lower mainland of Vancouver, meeting or exceeding industry standards. Our outdoor cabinet line NatureKast is Manufactured in Saint Catharines, Ontario and our other line Danver is manufactured in Connecticut in the United States.
Colours and trends are always changing and we are constantly updating our knowledge in these areas by attending the kitchen and bathroom trade shows, attending seminars and workshops. We pride ourselves on being leading edge of all styles, colours, and trends.
