Extended Stile or Rail, and Flush Side Options

Cabinets can be made with an extended stile or rail. The stile is the vertical side of the face frame, which is normally 1.5"W, but can be made up to 6"W such that it extends up to 4.5 additional inches to the side. The rail is the horizontal top piece of the face frame, which is normally also 1.5"H, but can be made up to 6"H such that it extends up to 4.5 additional inches downward. Cabinet sides normally have a 1/4" recessed area to make sure that two cabinets placed together do not have a problem fitting together, but they can be made flush. These options are not listed, so please ask if you need any of these options.

Extended Stile Option

The following options are available for selection on the web site:

Remove Center Stile

The stile is the vertical strip of wood that separates two doors and their compartments. If it is removed, the doors will be widened so that there will be no visible gap between them. The two drawers (or drawer fronts) will also be converted to a single drawer (or drawer front). This option will allow you to place larger objects inside the cabinet opening.

Single Door Options

For cabinets with only one door, you need to specify where to place the hinge. Alternately, you can replace it with two smaller doors. However, cabinets that are smaller than 12 inches in width will have solid-wood doors (i.e., no raised panel, beadboard, glass, or louver designs) since there will be no space for a panel in between the left and right frames.

Blind Options

A blind cabinet is one that will be placed in a comer and will be partially covered by an adjoining cabinet. The portion that will be covered will not have any doors and is called the blind side. The exposed portion of the cabinet will have a door or doors. You need to specify whether the blind portion will be on the right or the left side of the cabinet. The following photo is of a blind right cabinet:

Combo Options

Combination vanity cabinets come with a panel of drawers on one side and a door on the other. You need to specify the side on which the door will be located.

Finished Sides

Standard cabinets come with Pine, Maple, Oak, or Cherry solid wood face frames and Birch plywood sides. However, if one or both ends of a cabinet will be exposed and you plan to stain the exposed side, you should upgrade it to a "finished side," which will replace the Birch with a higher grade of Pine, Maple, Oak, or Cherry plywood. "Finished side" refers to a side that is of sufficient quality to accept a quality finish, but it is still unfinished (i.e. not pre-stained or painted).

Custom Dimensions

Cabinets will be built to your exact order, so you can specify virtually any size you desire. However, they can generally only be modified in two dimensions at a time (e.g. height and width, width and depth, or height and depth). Simply choose the next larger size cabinet and indicate the smaller size. The fee for each dimension that is changed covers the additional time and effort required when building your cabinet. Diagonal shaped corner cabinets can only be changed in height. If you need a cabinet in a height or width larger than the largest cabinet available, there will be a 25% fee for each dimension that is changed. If you need to increase the depth of a cabinet, there will be a fee of 10% per additional inch. The maximum depth is 24 inches. If the option to increase the depth or height is not available for a product, please contact us to place a special order.

Drawer Glides

Drawers with 3/4-extension slides do not pull all the way out of the opening and stop with about 4" of space inside the cabinet. Full-extension glides can support 75 lbs and allow the drawer to pull all the way out. Premium grade cabinets can have 3/4-extension undermount self-closing slides or full-extension slides. Soft-close full-extension glides are an optional upgrade. Below is a photo of a standard full-extension drawer slide.

Tilt-Out Trays

Sink and sink-front cabinets come with false panels at the top where the sink will go. To make use of this space, you can install your own tilt-out trays for storage of small items, but we can no longer install them for you. We recommend using the following link to buy tilt-out trays from Rockler.com.

Towel Racks

A towel rack can be added to a kitchen base cabinet door that is at least 14 inches wide. Generally, this means they can be installed on single-door cabinets that are at least 17 inches wide and on double-door cabinets that are at least 32 inches wide. We can no longer install these for you, but you can buy them in the accessories section.

Wire Baskets

Wire baskets can be installed on doors that are at least 14 inches wide. Generally, this means they can be installed on single-door cabinets that are at least 17 inches wide and on double-door cabinets that are at least 32 inches wide. We can no longer install these for you, but you can buy them in the accessories section.

Pull-Out Trays

Pull-out trays can be installed in standard depth base cabinets. Please indicate where you want your pull-out tray installed if there is a choice of left or right side or the bottom or middle of the opening. If you remove the center stile from a cabinet, the pull-out tray will be much wider than normal and will not be able to support as much weight.

Door Hinges

Kitchen and vanity cabinets come standard with hidden Euro-style hinges that allow the door to open 110 degrees and require a 1/2-inch overlay (the amount by which the door overlaps the opening). You can select the option to use semi-concealed "knife" hinges that are used on bookcases and furniture, which allow the door to open 180 degrees, but they are partially visible from the front and require that a cut be made into the door edge. Kitchen and vanity doors come pre-installed with a hidden-profile hinge. The old style 180-degree opening low-profile "knife" hinge is used on bookcases and other furniture
