Whether your home is a new build or decades old, chances are there are some things you’d like to change. One of the biggest complaints of homeowners is that they lack storage space in their property in Wichita. Custom closets and custom cabinets are a great solution to this problem, and perhaps one you’ve considered before. However, there’s a preconceived notion that quality custom cabinetry is for wealthy homeowners only. Cinema has contributed to this understanding, as many films spanning decades have featured awe-inspired girl-next-door types who find themselves witnessing their wealthy acquaintance’s custom walk-in closet filled with designer handbags.

Believe it or not, you too can have custom closets and custom cabinets in Wichita, KS for less than you might think. Plus, custom cabinetry may appeal to prospective buyers and make your home stand out. Not all handymen are experienced enough in carpentry to do this kind of work, but our Wichita handyman team isn’t your average handyman. To discuss your custom cabinetry needs, call us today, or continue reading below to learn more about what you can expect from our Wichita custom closet service.

Reasons You Need Our Wichita Custom Closets and Cabinets Service

If you’re like most Wichita homeowners, you didn’t design your home from the ground up. Maybe you’re the second or even fifth owner of your current home, or maybe you purchased your home before it was built, but had a choice between a handful of predesigned layouts. Regardless, unless you purchased the lot and hired an architect to design your living space according to your exact specifications, you probably didn’t choose every feature of your home from top to bottom.

Remodeling and renovation services are popular for this reason, but in addition to converting your bathroom’s tub to a shower and replacing your carpeted living room with luxury vinyl plank flooring, you should also consider the benefits of custom storage solutions.

There are many reasons why custom carpentry is worth it in Wichita. Custom closets in your bedroom and custom cabinets in your kitchen can of course increase the amount of storage space that you have, but they can also make your existing storage space more efficient and effective. If you’ve ever gotten ready for work in the morning and found yourself running out of time for breakfast because you spent too much time searching for that blouse you wanted to wear, you need our Wichita custom closet service. Custom storage solutions make your belongings so much easier to find, put away and keep organized.

Another major benefit of custom cabinetry is that it is tailored to meet your unique needs. Maybe you have a ton of sports equipment that needs dedicated storage space to keep your garage organized. Or maybe you love to cook and need more storage space for your many specialized small kitchen appliances. If you’ve ever thought to yourself, “I wish there was a better place I could store this item,” you may benefit from our Wichita custom closets and custom cabinets services.

Our Wichita Custom Closets Service, Step-By-Step

At Mr. Handyman of the Wichita Metro Area, we aim to make all of our services as simple and straightforward as possible for our customers. Any investment in home improvements can be a big leap, and we want you to have peace of mind throughout the entire process. Our Wichita custom closets and cabinetry service may be broken down into two main steps: the initial consultation and the installation.


The initial design consultation is where the magic happens. When you first contact us about your custom cabinet needs, we’ll set up an in-person appointment. While we can occasionally provide quotes over the phone for our most basic services, you can probably understand that we’ll need to meet in person to provide you with pricing for your custom carpentry project. By seeing your space firsthand and talking through the possible options for your project, we’ll be able to provide an accurate estimate, as well as ensure we’re on the same page when it comes to the design.

Though most of our clients request custom closets and custom kitchen cabinets as part of a kitchen remodel, we can build quality cabinets and shelving for any space in your home. Some projects our custom cabinet makers have done in the past include:

  • Entertainment centers
  • Bathroom cabinets
  • Basement cabinets
  • Wine cabinets
  • Under-stair shelving and storage
  • Nook storage
  • Garage storage
  • And more!

We also offer a ton of different cabinet door styles, cabinet sizes, and types of storage, including soft-close drawer guides, open shelving, and pull-out shelving. With so many options available, it’s impossible to list them all here. We encourage you to give us a call to set up your free consultation, as this is the best way to find out about and discuss all the possible options for your space.


Following your consultation, if you decide to use our Wichita custom closets and custom cabinets service, we’ll book you in for an installation appointment to bring your vision to life. The bulk of the carpentry work will be done off-site. This minimizes interruption to your day-to-day life and allows our professional carpentry team to take all the time they need to create beautiful custom wood features according to their high standards for quality craftsmanship.

Once all the wood components have been completed, we’ll load them into our company vehicle and arrive at your property on time for your pre-scheduled service appointment. Upon arrival, we’ll go over the installation process with you and get to work. Our carpentry professionals will keep you updated on the progress of the installation and let you know if any obstacles come up.

When the installation is complete, your expert carpenter will show you the completed project. If you have any concerns or questions, that would be a great time to bring them up. Otherwise, if you’re happy with the result, the team will clean up thoroughly after themselves and leave you to enjoy your new custom cabinets.

  • Do I need more storage space than I currently have? If your current kitchen cabinets or closet space aren’t big enough, you may need a solution that makes more use of the vertical space in your home to increase the amount of storage you have.
  • What are my biggest complaints about my existing storage? Are your cabinets so deep that you can’t see what’s in the back of them? Do you lack drawers? Are your shelves spaced too far apart vertically, resulting in dead space? Though you may not know how to solve these issues, making a list of the challenges you’re currently facing can help your carpentry expert make recommendations.
  • Do I like the look of my existing storage? The appearance of your custom cabinets is important too. What is your interior design style? Would you prefer a more traditional look or something with clean, simple lines?

It can also be helpful to find some images of storage solutions that you like. Pick as many photos as you’d like at first, and then narrow them down to a handful. Show these to your carpentry expert during your consultation.
