Custom Cabinet Design Process

Your Vision, Our Expertise

Custom Design Consultation

First, you will schedule an appointment and meet with a designer in Classic Cupboards’ showroom, located in New Orleans, Louisiana. During this appointment, we will discuss your project and review custom cabinet options.

Initial Estimate

Classic Cupboards will provide an estimate when preliminary kitchen and/or architectural plans are available. If plans are to be developed by Classic Cupboards, a design agreement will be discussed. We will then collaborate and select appliances to incorporate the specifications of the plan. Upon receipt of the design agreement, Classic Cupboards will visit the job site to confirm all dimensions.

Plan and Finalize Your Custom Design

Preliminary Classic Cupboards’ custom cabinet plans are drawn and reviewed with the client. Once cabinet finishes and styles are selected, Classic Cupboards can order door samples for the client’s approval. Cabinets are ordered once the contract and deposit are received.

Custom Cabinets are Ordered

Upon receipt of the approved contract and deposit, the custom cabinets will be ordered. Production and delivery time is approximately 7 to 12 weeks. Free delivery to local job sites and detailed installation plans for the installer are provided.

Project Completion

Once the project is complete, you can simply enjoy the custom cabinets of your dreams!

Beautiful Cabinets
We Love our Kitchen

“Our experience with Classic Cupboards was very rewarding. Not only did we love their beautiful cabinets, but their expertise in re-configuring our kitchen gave us more cabinets than we could have every imagined. Thanks Classic Cupboards for your hard work! We love our kitchen.”

Kitchen & Bar
We Couldn’t be Happier

“In the process of building our new home in Metairie, we sought the recommendations of our architect, builder and friends on the design of our kitchen and bar area. After meeting with several very qualified businesses, we decided to hire Classic Cupboards, and we couldn’t be more pleased with our decision. John and Pat of Classic Cupboards worked with us and our builder to design plans for a functional kitchen. They educated us on the options we had with respect to kitchen cabinetry, and we were never pressured to move outside of our comfort range price-wise. They were always available for Sue to work with color and finish selections, and were most helpful in coordinating the kitchen cabinetry with our marble tops and hardwood flooring. When it became time to select appliances, John was able to work with us to provide top of the line appliances at a very competitive price. The delivery of all of our cabinetry and appliances was timely, and Classic Cupboards was there throughout a very efficient installation process. We couldn’t be happier with the finished product of our kitchen and bar areas, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Classic Cupboards to anyone building a new home or substantially remodeling a kitchen or bar area.”

Kitchen Specialist
Great Care & Professionalism

“As an architect, I have designed many kitchens over the years. However, when it came time for the remodeling of my own kitchen, I sought the help of a kitchen specialist. Working with Classic Cupboards turned out to be the best decision for my project. Their staff was attentive to my design concerns and made the selection of products, equipment, and materials an enjoyable process. They efficiently presented a host of options and were eager to assist me in the decision making at every turn. Most importantly, the delivery and installation was on schedule and handled with great care and professionalism.”

Dennis Brady, Architect

New Kitchen Build
Exactly What We Wanted

“We were building a house after Katrina where the kitchen is the main area of our home. We had photos, ideas, magazine clippings, etc. and needed someone who could execute our thoughts. John and Pat were amazing. They listened, made great suggestions and the finished product is exactly what we wanted.”

Kitchen Renovation
A Beautiful Well-Planned Kitchen

“John and Pat made working on my kitchen project go smoothly. We went over every detail to make sure that the cabinets came without a hitch. I love the organizing accessories for spices and utensils as well as the roll out trays and blind corner cabinet pull out; adding functionality. Classic Cupboards gives outstanding service and I am so pleased with my beautiful, well-planned kitchen.”
