Cabinet Design Process

Every project begins with a consultation about what the customer envisions. The true beauty of customization is that we are able to fulfill both your needs and your aesthetic without compromising. We can offer suggestions for materials and design that will best suit the function and style you have in mind. Whether you have young children to accommodate, supplies to organize, or a work area that needs flow, we can build cabinets that beautifully make the best use of your space.

We will use the information gathered from our consultation to create a 3-D drawing of the proposed project and will then review it with you. Once we have gained your approval of the design, cabinet construction will begin.

Cabinet Building Process

Deer Mountain Cabinetry has done a great deal of research into materials and techniques to be sure we are producing quality cabinetry. Our cabinet boxes are constructed primarily of prefinished plywood rather than with the particle board/paper veneers typically used on box store cabinets. Our cabinet drawer boxes are made using dovetail joinery, and our cabinets include high-quality, soft-close drawer slides and hinges. We build all of our cabinet boxes in-house at our shop here in Butte-Silver Bow and source out our doors and drawers to Walzcraft, a U.S. company that builds premium quality products for custom cabinet makers. We use Walzcraft because they offer more than 500 door styles, over 100 species/grades of wood, and 60 plus stains/finishes to choose from. Working with them, we can build cabinets as simple or as detailed as you choose. Click the link here or go to our Links tab to learn more.

Cabinet Installation Process

The final step is the installation of your cabinetry. We take pride in making sure your cabinets are set level to create a solid base for your countertops. Our crew is courteous and conscientious while working in your home or business. Most of our tools can be hooked up to HEPA dust extractors to keep dust to an absolute minimum.  After installation is complete, we do a final cleaning of the insides and outsides of your cabinets as well as our workspace. All we will leave behind are your beautiful cabinets.

Countertop Building Process

Deer Mountain Cabinetry also specializes in fabricating solid-surface countertops. Sold surface is a great choice for countertops due to its strength and easy-care properties. Solid surface is low maintenance and can be refinished down the road to make it look brand new years after installation. Deer Mountain Cabinetry carries LX Hausys HI-MACS Solid Surface in over 130 color options. Click the link here or go to our Links tab to learn more.
