Fine cabinetry for traditional and restoration projects demands a respect for historical design intent and a thorough understanding of modern lifestyle essentials from technology to Universal Design.
A successful design is dependent upon precise measurements and evaluating clients’ needs.
A successful installation is dependent on accurate shop drawings, an understanding of materials, adequate lead time and skillful production followed by experienced installers onsite.
- Develop and schedule the fabrication and installation of fine cabinetry.
- Compare and contrast wood, finishes, and hardware for fine cabinetry.
- Consider the end use of kitchens with such goals as ergonomics, universal design and family interaction in mind.
- Reduce the number of variables that contribute to challenging installations by following recommended best practices.
