Our Work

DESIGN PROCESS

Custom cabinet makers in Austin, TexasThe advantage to custom cabinetry is the ability for the customer to be personally involved in the selection and design of the cabinets.  Each space is unique and the needs of each individual vary.  Because of these factors, design is a process.  The customer must decide on style, wood selection, door profiles and hinge preference.  We can help assist our clients in these choices and help guide them towards a design that reflects the client’s vision.

HJ Cabinets provides a range of custom kitchen cabinet solutions to commercial and residential clients in the following Texas areas:  Austin, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Lakeway, Pflugerville

There are typically two scenarios in designing and bidding a project

Scenario 1- The customer comes to us with a design from an architect or interior designer with dimensions, style and specifications. After an initial meeting we will take the plans, input them into our software and provide an estimate. Once drawings are agreed upon we provide a final estimate and contract.

Scenario 2- The customer has no plan just a need for cabinetry. We come alongside the customer to discuss style, function and finish preferences.  We will then take initial measurements of the space or spaces, input them into our software and then meet with the client to review drawing and discuss estimate.  Once drawings are agreed upon we provide a final estimate and contract.  All drawings are property of Heritage Joinery until the deposit is made.

Materials

Wood selection for each job is based on customer preference. We have several wood suppliers around Austin, central Texas and beyond who carry everything from basic to exotic woods. We do choose the highest quality, domestic plywood for our cabinet boxes in contrast to some of our competitors. At Heritage Joinery we feel imported plywood is unreliable and creates a compromise on the high quality we ensure for our customers. It is our promise that your cabinet’s interior quality matches its exterior.

At Heritage Joinery we also feel the components that go into the cabinets must be of a high quality. We understand function and durability are essential to the longevity of our cabinets. We not only make a product that looks good on the day it is installed but will function well for the years to come. To compromise on the nuts and bolts opens up to potential problems with sagging doors and broken hinges in the future. After years of making cabinets, we have seen how going just a step above your basic cabinet box provides you, our customers, with a product that will stand the test of time.
