    “The cabinet and drawers are all wonderful.  We are so happy with them and with you.  Thank you so much!”

    Marilyn L., Homeowner

    “It has been such a pleasure working with Vision Woodworks.  The quality and craftsmanship of your cabinetry are exceptional.  The family room desk is both beautiful and functional.  It’s so nice to have a central location for the boys to study and do their homework.  The cabinetry and woodwork in the master bedroom and bathroom are the focal points of each room and have helped create the tranquil and soothing atmosphere we were trying to achieve.  We love it all!”

    Kristine F., Homeowner

News & Events

EDUCATE YOURSELF ON CABINETRY

This month’s newsletter is extremely practical for anyone considering new cabinetry.  Learn the difference between truly custom cabinetry versus semi-custom or box cabinetry, and what you get with each.  You’ll find the cost difference will surprise you.

We recently spoke at 2 community events about maximizing your space and style with custom cabinetry. One of the things we did was educate people on the difference between truly custom, semi-custom and box cabinetry.

The word “custom” is a highly used word. It’s used by truly custom cabinetry shops, as well as semi-custom and box cabinet shops. With true custom your space dictates their system. Semi-custom and box cabinetry force your space work within their system.

With truly custom cabinetry, the initial price will almost always look higher.  We’ve had multiple contractors come back to us after their clients chose to go with semi-custom or box cabinetry and tell us that the cost difference between our cabinets and the ones they got were negligible once the installers and finishers billed for their time to monkey with the cabinets to get them to fit the space properly.

When all is said and done, what do you get with each?

Custom Semi-custom/box
Wood ¾” Thick plywood Particle board or melamine
Hardware High-quality to last Low to mid quality, to cut cost
Drawers Full-extension 21”-22” deep Full-extension 18” deep to cut cost
Ease of installation Easy; perfect fit Requires hours of manipulation.
Measure To nearest 1/16th inch To nearest 3”
Space used Maximized Wasted space
Initial price Usually higher Usually lower
Net price Usually negligible to semi-custom and box cabinetry Usually negligible to custom, minus the features that come with custom

COMPUTER RENDERED DRAWINGS: Using Technology to Accurately Show Possibilities

View this month’s newsletter on computer rendered drawings, and learn how this technology is helping homeowners visualize their dream space on paper.

Computer rendered drawings are extremely helpful in showing homeowners how their “dream space” will actually look.  It’s one thing to spout off ideas as you enter their bathroom, and it’s quite another to give them a futuristic picture of all those ideas on paper.

At Vision Woodworks, we have the advantage of not only showing how ceiling-height cabinets will look in a kitchen, we can show you specifically what dark-stained Cherry cabinets would look like, and how that compliments the black granite you’ve just picked out.  It’s a technology that we’ve worked hard to master, and are quite pleased with the results.

This was a beautiful linear bathroom we did in Seattle. Double sliding doors open from the hallway, exposing this lovely double-sink vanity. On one side is the glass enclosed shower, and on the other side is the commode.

HOW WOULD THIS LOOK IN YOUR HOUSE?

Our first stop in our most recent round of photo shoots was to a wonderful couple in North Seattle. Like a lot of people, they filled this space with whatever furniture they could find that would fit there. The result was a somewhat functional area with no “wow” factor.

 

Then came the built-in entertainment center and fireplace surround. Notice how the cabinet perfectly fills the space (the beauty of custom), and blends with the fireplace. There is plenty of storage, with shelves to display beautiful pieces of work. The result was a stunning area, and very happy customers
