1. Custom Cabinet Construction

You probably already have a set of cabinets in your kitchen, and possibly other rooms as well—but are they optimized to meet your needs? If you find yourself constantly needing more storage space, it probably feels like there's no effective solution—after all, you can't make the room any bigger—but a clever design created specifically to address how you like to use your kitchen can give you the additional storage you need in the space you have available.

Have you ever wished your cabinets went all the way to the ceiling, or you had a better way to manage pots and pans, or even that your cutlery drawer was closer to your dishwasher? Custom cabinetry is your chance to change all those problems and get your dream kitchen that will function perfectly for your cooking style.

Here are some custom carpentry options for your kitchen cabinets:

  • Location, number, and size of cabinets

  • Pantry cupboard for storing dry goods

  • Whether cabinets have doors or drawers

  • Cabinet finish (Paint or wood stain? Glossy or matte?)

  • Handles & drawer knobs

  • Type of hinges (For example, soft-close hinges so the doors can't be slammed)

  • Relocate or add a kitchen island

  • Table that folds up on the wall for an eat-in kitchen in a limited space

Of course, your kitchen isn't the only place that can use custom cabinets. Your laundry room, mud room, garage, study, and basement can all benefit from using custom carpentry services to create special cabinets—a place for everything, and everything in its place!

2. Deck & Porch Improvements

In recent times, outdoor living spaces have taken center stage as the ideal location for socializing with friends and family. From grilling dinner and soaking up the sun on the backyard deck to sitting out on your front porch just watching the world go by, they're among the best ways to enjoy warm weather—and Arlington custom carpentry services could make them even better.

Naturally, it's important that your deck and porch are in good condition. But exterior Arlington carpentry projects go beyond just basic repairs. You could use local carpentry services to complete refinishing and improvement projects that will really boost curb appeal and property value—not to mention make your outdoor space the envy of your neighborhood.

Need some inspiration? Here are a few ideas for Arlington custom carpentry services that can take your deck and porch from “just fine” to your favorite parts of the house:

  • Porch screen to keep bugs out and let fresh breezes in

  • TV mounted on an exterior wall so you can watch the game outside

  • Built-in seating around the perimeter of your deck

  • Unique flower boxes and planters

  • Countertop by the grill for an outdoor kitchen area

  • Connect a gazebo or shed to the deck with a raised wooden walkway

  • Multi-level deck with access points on two or three stories of your home

3. Wainscoting & Wall Paneling Installation

When you think of wood wall paneling, does an image of your grandmother's basement remodel circa 1970 come to mind? Let that vision go—Arlington carpentry has come a long way since then. Our carpenters can create wall paneling and wainscoting that will give your home the sophisticated, luxurious vibes you're looking for. It doesn't have to be old-fashioned, either; you can choose contemporary, rustic, modern, classic, or minimalistic styles that will set your home apart and serve as a conversation piece for your friends and neighbors in Arlington. If you’ve got older crown molding or wainscoting that just needs an update, you could also get the same results from expert interior trim repair services.

All the same principles apply to decorative moldings such as chair rails, crown molding, and elaborate wooden trim as well. Those elements are among the things that we all love about historic homes, but they don't have to be left in the past. You'll be pleasantly surprised by how much a little interior trim created with Arlington carpentry services can impact the look and style of your home.

4. Mantel Installation

Your fireplace is a major feature in your home, and it deserves a mantel to frame and enhance it. Whether you're going for a simple, clean style or an elaborate, historically-inspired design, it's surprising how much substance a beautifully-made mantel can add to a room—and it’s easy to make one with the help of Arlington carpentry services.

Don't have a fireplace? That doesn't mean you don't need a mantel! For example, you could add a mantelpiece over the master bed, or over the "modern fireplace"—also known as the television. It may sound unconventional, but it'll blend in a lot more seamlessly than you may think and provide the perfect place to showcase your most interesting and striking decor pieces—as well as your home’s stunning custom carpentry.

5. Custom Shelving & Bookcase Construction

Shelving units and bookcases tend to fade into the background in most Arlington homes—it's the stuff that's on them that matters, not the actual shelves. But with the right choices in the right location, they could actually become a room-defining feature. For example, imagine your study with wall-to-ceiling bookcases. If you have a high enough ceiling, you could even add a ladder on rails for the ultimate book-lover's dream library. With the help of our Arlington carpentry services, your shelves and bookcases could be as stunning as what you put on them.

Want to reduce clutter in a room with a modern style? Floating shelves will replace end tables and bedside tables to keep the room sleek and minimalist, and free up some extra floor space as well. Or consider a built-in china cabinet or trophy case to display your precious items and greatest achievements. There are many options for optimizing your home’s storage with carpentry services in Arlington.

6. Entertainment Center Installation

Cords, cables, consoles, and controllers everywhere! If you love your movies, video games, and music, your entertainment center is probably bursting at the seams—or maybe it's an awkward size or shape that doesn't quite fit in your available space. A custom-designed option will have the perfect space to fit all your audio and video equipment, and all your equipment's equipment as well! Our carpentry experts are here to build the perfect entertainment center for your home. Don't forget to complement it with your comfiest chair, front and center for the optimal entertainment experience.

7. Custom Play Space Improvements

Children are small, but the volume of stuff they manage to accumulate in just a few short years is anything but small. If you haven't seen the floor in the play room in months, there are carpentry services to help make their play space clean and tidy.

From cubbyhole shelves that make tidying up easy enough that a kid could (and should) do it, to cozy bench seats that just happen to have a hinged toy box underneath, our handymen will use their carpentry skills to create an organized, inviting space that everyone in the family will want to use.
