The Home Office Trend Is To Customize Space For The Entire Family There was a time when the ‘home office’ applied solely to corporate executives. Traditionally defined by wood-paneled walls, large oak desks and leather-bound chairs; this space was dedicated to the head of the household as his “office away from the office.” With the explosion of remote employees and work-from-home businesses, this once ‘exclusive’ room is now used by any family member. More than employment, it’s the family place to do everything from paying monthly bills to homework assignments. Custom cabinetry is the best option to increase both safety and efficiency. Let me explain… Safe and Secure, or Open to All? The business office: How cabinets are placed for security is more important than ever. They may need to be high enough to stay of children’s reach, or come equipped with locks for sensitive documents and files. To maximize efficiency, office cabinets can be customized with built-in file dividers and holders…and have as many drawers as needed for whatever ‘tools’ the work requires. The family office: Where the home office is multi-functional; parents and kids may share the same space. Here’s where cabinets with open shelves, glass-paned doors and bins keep the kids items separate and away from what parents need in order to take care of business. Questions To Ask When It’s Time To Re-Model “What’s the objective?” “Who needs it and how will they use it?” “Why do it now?” Just as we convert laundry rooms to multi-purpose space; the same holds true for the home office.

As stated in our previous blog about Shaker cabinets, the trend in cabinet design continues to lean towards beauty, simplicity, and functionality – a perfect formula for this style. Around since the 1800’s, the Shaker profile stays true to its generations-old simplicity. Not surprisingly, it’s as popular as ever today. But what if your client doesn’t follow the crowd? Not everybody wants the same as everyone else. Therefore, we adapt these cabinets to fit modern tastes with some twists. Whether your clients prefer country, contemporary, even an industrial look – the squared off shape easily adjusts to changes using different cuts, finishes and hardware. It starts with the characteristics and styles of the cabinetry itself. Shaker cabinets offer a number of options. Due to the frame and panel profile (also known as rail and style construction), pure Shaker style cabinetry is very plain. Adding a slight beveled finish keeps the cabinets simple, yet gives them an elegant touch. Larger units can be divided into sections with pieces known as mid-rails, mid-stiles…or strips of wood or metal known as muntins. Some clients need lots of storage and using rows of big drawers maximizes storage space. For added flourish, we can include design features such as beaded or raised panels. How to differentiate Shaker cabinets with finishes. Before the introduction of various finishes, cabinet craftsmen relied on the quality of wood…like maple, birch and chestnut. The various characteristics of the grain defined the cabinet’s beauty. In addition, we offer woods like cherry and walnut for an even richer look. When it comes to an antique or simply unique version, we can...

Thank you for your patience with us. Most of all thank you for the sharing of your experience and design knowledge. I know that centering the sink is great! Not buying the silverware insert saved us money.
I was very impressed with the customer service with Chris Boulton with Cornerstone Cabinets. He went above and beyond to help me even with a small request I had.
Our new counters and cabinets are gorgeous! They came up with an awesome layout that fit our needs and delivered on every promise. If you are doing a kitchen remodel I highly recommend you give Mark a call.
We had a relatively small job - replacing toe kicks in the bathroom. Oak Craft Cabinets, who supplied the cabinets, recommended Cornerstone, who is one of their dealers. Chris [owner] agreed to do it despite its small size. Several issues cropped up pre-installation which were successfully resolved. The installer, Tim, did a beautiful job and solved some major unforeseen installation issues. The price was very fair. I recommend Cornerstone without reservation.
Cornerstone Cabinets came to my home in Scottsdale and performed a full kitchen remodel. This included a full kitchen cabinet makeover, along with brand new Marlam granite countertops. I was incredibly impressed with their cleanliness and friendly crew. I would highly recommend Cornerstone Cabinets to anyone in Scottsdale looking for a kitchen remodel in the future.
I have known Chris and used his company multiple times over the past decade. He most recently installed custom Oakcraft cabinets in my Gilbert, AZ home and did an excellent job. I absolutely love my new kitchen remodel! His crew was super friendly, courteous, and worked cleanly and efficiently! Anyone looking for a bathroom remodel or a kitchen remodel in Phoenix AZ should use Cornerstone Cabinets, you will LOVE them, I promise!
As a General Contractor Cornerstone Cabinets has gone above and beyond to make my customers happy. I would highly recommend them to anyone. They truly do stand behind their product. They have always been a pleasure to work with. Jim - HANbuilt Construction.
