Why Bespoke-Custom Cabinetry?

You may think cabinets are just boxes with shelves, drawers and doors, designed to hide your clutter and provide storage for your ever-growing collection of kitchen gadgets, which is true. But they much more. Cabinetry is the main portion of your kitchen’s appeal, the widest spread and most expensive investment. Think of your cabinetry as furniture or art — It can alter the entire mood of the home, bring in warmth or echo a style throughout. It should be built to last and created with the homeowner in mind…with intention.

While cabinets from a big box store may be less expensive, the value just isn’t there. Bespoke cabinetry has unmatched benefits that you won’t get from generic pre-fabricated versions of 'custom'. And, when you consider the value in those features, you will understand why putting custom cabinetry in your kitchen will be the best decision you can make during your renovation.


Everything you need and nothing you don’t

The best part of investing in a bespoke kitchen renovation is the ability to work with our kitchen designers to choose the features that work best for you and your family. You don’t have to work within the confines of average dimensions. You can adjust counter-top heights to meet your needs if that is important to you. Select unique interior components, door and drawer combinations that make using your kitchen easy and efficient.

Once you have decided to move forward, we will want to visit your home to view exactly how you use your kitchen, what you store in your cabinets and what you don’t use in your existing space. This will ensure your custom kitchen design gives you everything you need, and nothing you don’t.


The sky’s the limit with Attlea's bespoke cabinetry

When you look at generic stock cabinetry, you will be told that they are "custom", that there are “hundreds of combinations” that are available. But when you stop and think about what is truly available, you are still very limited. Real bespoke(or real 100% custom) cabinets allow you to choose from professionally customized endless selections of size, color, wood, style, finish and hardware to make sure your kitchen is the beautiful and functional space you’ve been dreaming of.

Big box store cabinetry is made in batches in an assembly line, which means you may end up with finishes that match, but are not identical. When you order custom-made cabinetry specifically for your space, it is made per each order. That means everything will be hand selected and completed together giving you a uniform and cohesive look. A 'one of a kind' piece of handcrafted art.


Cabinets built to last

From our very beginning, Attlea Inc. has upheld the integrity of only hiring skilled designers, carpenters and cabinet makers and working with trades that represent themselves and who take pride in their work. We only use quality materials (with no corners cut) and full cube design; no thin backing and no cross braces on the top of the boxes — after all your custom cabinets should be a work of art. Your cabinets should be built to last featuring the top grade in 5/8" A1 Partical Core instead of plywood, hand screwed or doweled instead of glue and hidden under-mounts instead of side slide brackets. You may think those stock cabinets seem sturdy and appealing now, but your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home, and you don’t want to lose the money invested in your renovation because you chose discount prices & quick fix solutions over craftsmanship and longevity.
