Cabinetry, by definition is; the craft of making furniture (especially furniture of high quality), which means cabinetry design requires a lot of responsibility. We will try to help you avoid costly mistakes. You will know what we know; our knowledge has been tried-and-proven.

Some Basic Cabinetry Design Principles (General Advice)

Cabinetry design and engineering go hand-in-hand to insure a trouble free cabinet project (especially with increased complexity like a kitchen). Building the job without engineering can cause you to sacrifice both quality and profit.

We would like to share our system called, Engineered by Design. It will provide you with a guide to insure clear communication during the construction process. Following our system will keep the operation profitable and efficient.

Planning system with Engineered Design

For the simplified communication between services we are numbering parts on the floor-plan and walls' elevation (projection drawings). Walls, windows, doors, cabinets, columns, etc., are all numbered as much as possible. Everyone involved will receive identical drawings, this includes owners of the project.

For example if the owner is asked by the electrician, "where do I put the output wires for the under-cabinet lighting?" The answer will be, under cabinet № 16. Here is another example: the plumber accidently damaged panel № 56, but the good news is the cabinet maker already knows everything about this panel. This eliminated an unnecessary visit to the site.

We are working on more pages to explore Engineered by Design System specifically for cabinet designers and cabinet makers.

Facing the Problems with Custom Cabinetry Design

Cabinetry design ideas smart planning

What does custom mean to you? - Does it mean a 3D computer image of your project? Or, does it mean I get exactly what I want: color, size, style, and function. When designing a custom project, it is imperative from the onset to have the proper team in place. In a perfect scenario, Designer, Engineer, Manufacturer and Installer, would hash out any perceived problems before any manufacturing process began; ink is less costly than wood.

In the real world, the installer lays blame at the feet of the designer, the designer lays blame on the installer, and the customer's project suffers. With everything on the same page, everyone knows what's expected and the consumers get what they desire - a smooth flowing, hassle free job that fits the bill perfectly. No surprises; everyone is happy.

Any changes in design must be done before ordering materials, parts, or components to maximize your value and keep you from needless cost overruns.

Good designers will provide all necessary specifics for ordering, manufacturing, and installation. In any other scenario, a whole bunch of questions will fly between parties with final answer that usually no one will agree on - let's try to be sure that all concerns are addressed before the machines fire up.

The Challenge of Crafting a Good Cabinetry Design before Building

Cabinetry design smart plans

No matter who you are; savvy pro in cabinetry industry, handyman, or home owner... your final goal will be to finish your cabinet project on time and in budget. Like building a structure, quality starts with the concept and must carry through until the final piece of hardware or trim is in place. The quality and cost must be predicted before the project begins. We assume you would like to go through the process with minimum frustrations and cost overruns.

Somebody has to be in charge; with this system it will be you with personal control, with your own assurance that you are getting the best product from your investment.

Good and beautiful kitchen cabinetry design

A good cabinetry design, especially for custom built cabinets, will provide a 3D clear vision of the construction process with simple communication language for all partie's involved. What you see on your drawings must be easily explainable to you, the manufacturer, and the installer. Requesting a construction specification from the cabinet provider - (definitely a plus) puts you in charge and allows you to spend your money wisely.
