About Us


Company Background

Highlands Designs, LLC was established in 2006 to provide customers with a quick and easy way of buying customizable unfinished or finished cabinets, furniture and bookcases online. We have served over 4,000 customers with orders both large and small who wanted to take charge of their own home remodeling project. We know how tedious it is to go to a large design center or home improvement store such as Home Depot or Lowes, sit down with a designer for several hours, and end up paying more than necessary or not being able to get the sizes or styles you want. So, we created a site where you can shop for everything online without the hassle.

Not only is our selection of cabinets and furniture of the highest quality, we also strive to provide them at the best prices you will find anywhere. They are made by Woodcraft Industries, Arthur W. BrownCanyon Creek, and Aristokraft using solid wood and furniture-grade plywood, NOT particleboard or MDF like some brand-name manufacturers use. Most items are available in Maple, Oak or Cherry, with other types of wood available from Canyon Creek and Aristokraft.

All Woodcraft products are now available either unfinished or finished in one of 26 different stains and paints and all Arthur W. Brown products are available in 9 stains or 3 paint colors. For even more options, Canyon Creek cabinets are available in 27 stain colors, thousands of custom paint colors, and many more distressing options. If you can't wait for semi-custom products to be built, we now offer Aristokraft stock cabinets, available in 10 stain and 2 paint colors within three weeks.

To contact us, please send an email to: or fax to: 480-287-9966. Email is preferred. To keep our overhead and prices low, we do not have someone on call to answer the phone. So, if you need to speak to someone, please send us an email with your phone number or leave a voicemail at: 410-878-6289 and we will call you back.

Customer Testimonials

Highlands Designs in Columbia, MD on Houzz

"So far everything that I have purchased from you is great. You are the first place I go when I look for cabinets. Keep up the great customer support."
- N. Porochnia, New York 

"We stained the cabinets yesterday and are absolutely thrilled with the results! The quality of workmanship is superb, hardly needed any sanding to ready them for staining, and the units are so solid and sturdy, we can't wait to install them. In a time when most manufacturing is being done in foreign countries, and American workmanship is disappointing, it is fantastic to find an American company where quality and value mean something. Thank you so much!!!"

- J. Shade, Pennsylvania

"Pleased with the clean simplicity and nice quality!"

- N. Eichacker, Maryland

"Thank you for the excellent bookcases.  They are now installed and look quite good.  Each bookcase is exactly 27 1/4 wide as requested, each of the units had the same dimensions and was well squared, which made attaching three of them together much easier. Also, the moldings are nicely made of thick well finished wood. The delivery was quick and smartly done. Doing business with you has been a pleasure and I wholeheartedly recommend both your products and sales staff."

- P. Winterfeldt, District of Columbia
