Our Process

After the initial contact is made, we visit your house, take measurements, ask questions, and get a sense for your vision. If you’re out of town, no problem! We'll use phone, email and text to get started.

We create a digital rendering to show your space and layout. Working with you, we make changes and finalize our plan. Once materials and finishings are selected, an official proposal is created with pricing.

A work schedule is created and our skilled craftsmen get to work on your cabinets.  Production typically takes 6 to 8 weeks.

Your new cabinets are delivered by our team. Installation is completed by contractors or construction companies but we’ll check to make sure everything is installed properly. 

Frequently Asked Questions

I don't live near Aberdeen, SD. Can you deliver my cabinets?

arrow icon

Absolutely. We can deliver cabinets anywhere. Over the years, we have sent cabinets to Alaska, California, Utah and Colorado. We have even built cabinets for a yacht!

I found a design online. Can you recreate it?

arrow icon

Yes. Many of our clients come with inspiration from Pinterest, Instagram, Google and other online sources. Since everything we do is custom built, we should have no problem making exactly what you want.

Do you install cabinets?

arrow icon

No, we work with your construction company or contractor to install the cabinets. If you do not have a contractor, we can help you find one.

What wood species are available?

arrow icon

Any and all. We can source any materials you want for your job.

Do you paint and/or stain cabinets?

arrow icon

Yes, we can paint or stain your cabinets any color.

Can you match my existing cabinets, style, stain, paint, color, etc.?

arrow icon

We can match almost anything. Older woods can be more challenging due to time and UV discoloration but we can still create a very accurate match.

How long will my project take?

arrow icon

Cabinets are typically built 6-8 weeks from the approval of your proposal. 

Do you require money down?

arrow icon

All projects require a 30% down payment before cabinet building begins.

With the help from Cabinets Dakotah our kitchen/dining room remodel went smoothly and turned out beautiful. From the quality of the cabinetry to the install, we could not have asked for better service and product.
