#1 What is wrong with your current cabinets?

Think about what you don’t like about your cabinets.

  • Do you hate the color?

  • Are your cabinets worn out?

  • Is the style outdated?

  • Are your cabinets squeaky or hard to open?

  • Are they not closing properly?

Whether you want better looking, or better working cabinets, new custom cabinets will solve both of these issues.


#2 What do you like about your current cabinets?

  • Do you like the current size of your cabinets?

  • How is the height of your cabinets? You can customize them for any tall or small individuals.

  • Are your cabinets in a location you like?

If you don’t like much about your current cabinets, that is perfectly okay! It may be helpful to look on Pinterest for cabinets you do like, so you have an idea before your first meeting. Most custom cabinet companies have showrooms, so you can get a better idea of what you like.
