“Why custom cabinetry” is a common question from homeowners, and it’s a fair one. Custom cabinetry is more expensive than the two alternatives:
- Ready-made, pre-manufactured stock cabinetry, which can not be customized.
- Semi-custom work, which allows for a limited amount of customization, primarily in sizing.
Both have their strong points and their value, depending on what you want to spend and how you want your cabinetry to look or fit based on needs and aesthetics.
Custom Cabinetry Means Just That
Like a fine handmade suit, custom cabinetry is made to order, per your designs and specifications. With custom work, there are no iron-clad rules about standard sizes or shapes, the wood you choose, finishes, or hardware.
At Midland, we fabricate cabinets and all our wood products exactly as you or your architect / designer want them done. We literally make it yours, in all respects, using the latest computerized machinery and calling on the best craftsmen.
Midland: A Custom Shop Since 1965
Midland Cabinet Company, family-owned and operated, has been a custom shop for more than 50 years. Over the decades we have designed and fabricated every style and design imaginable: contemporary, traditional, transitional, and the truly personal.
Beyond experience, another compelling reason for choosing Midland for your custom cabinetry is that we make it locally at our San Carlos headquarters, and we make it in California.
What’s So Special About Being ‘Local’?
The first — locally made in San Carlos — means your cabinetry isn’t shipped to you from out of state or out of the country. It’s made on location, which allows you to work one-on-one with Midland, even to watch the progress of your product: Clients are welcome to drop by our fabrication shop. We also install all our cabinetry: From the beginning of the process to its completion, we ensure quality.
The second — made in California — means that your cabinetry is free from a range of noxious, toxic chemicals that California has banned. Our cabinetry is formaldehyde-free. We work with you on choosing a range of fine wood that is Forest Stewardship Council-certified. We use low-VOC (volatile organic compound) glues, finishes, and stains.
In Short . . .
Midland does not carry an inventory of pre-cut cabinetry. We take the designs and blueprints from your architect and render them as drawn.
Midland is a turnkey Design + Build + Install company. We do it all, and we guarantee our work. As founder and owner Rob Boynton assures, Midland stands behind its products “and we service our customers for the lifetime of their cabinetry.”
