Frequently Asked Questions About Charleston Cabinet Installation


Suppose your Charleston cabinet installation is part of a larger project like a bathroom or kitchen remodel; plus, there will also be a new floor installed. In that case, you're probably trying to work out the right order to get everything done for maximum efficiency. While Charleston cabinet installation service can be done without disturbing your flooring material, if it's being ripped out anyway, it makes the most sense to take care of the cabinetry before the flooring is installed. Of course, it'll be necessary to have flooring joists and the subfloor in place, so your cabinet installers have something to support the installation.


Suppose you like the layout and configuration of your current cabinetry, but the style is outdated, and you're ready for a new look, or your doors and drawer fronts are looking really beat up after years of wear and tear damage. In that case, it may not be necessary to do a complete replacement. We have expert finish carpenters who take care of the refinishing or refacing job. Refinishing may be all it takes to get a modern, fresh appearance that can transform the entire room, as long as the cabinet boxes are still sturdy and in decently good condition. Refinishing involves sanding down cabinet doors and drawer fronts to remove scratches and dirt and applying fresh coats of wood stain or paint. Refacing, on the other hand, is when we put on new doors and drawer fronts while leaving the boxes as-is. That's a good choice if you want an entirely new style


That really depends on your preferences. One big advantage of a custom installation is that it can be made to suit your needs. If your household members are shorter or taller than average, it may make sense to adjust the base cabinet height, so your countertop is at a height that's most comfortable for you to use. But if you want to stick to the standards, it'll be around 36 inches high for base cabinets, and upper cabinets begin about 18 inches above the countertop.


We certainly do because we understand that certain kitchen walls and ceilings are oddly shaped and need personalized, custom furniture to make specific spaces more efficient. In order to make your custom cabinet installation special, we’ll help you source your preferred lumber locally and ensure your solid wood is made of quality material. When choosing our expert carpenters, you can rest easy knowing that they’re trained professionals who are able to meet your requirements. High-quality materials will be acquired locally and sustainably.


That's up to you. It used to be standard for upper wall cabinets to stop a foot or two below the ceiling, but it's increasingly popular for a kitchen cabinet installation to go all the way up. That gives you some additional storage space inside the systems, and it also means you don't have to climb the counters to dust all the way up there.
