DESIGN & ORDER CABINETS ONLINE
Professional installers as well as DIY’ers can now conveniently order cabinets online. The EHT staff spoke to Bill Johnson of Flex Cabinets about the process.
EHT: What services does Flex Cabinets offers to the kitchen remodeling industry. Johnson: FlexCabinets.com wants to be your One Stop Source for all your cabinet needs. With over 10,000 products offered on www.flexcabinets.com, there is no need to go to multiple places to find everything you need for your kitchen. Cabinets, molding, lazy susans, drawers and more—we have it all, saving you both time and money.
EHT: What are some common mistakes homeowners make when designing their new kitchen cabinets? Johnson: Always measure twice, and design once. When it comes to kitchen design, every inch counts. In fact, every 1/16 in. counts! Inaccurate measurements are one of the most common design mistakes. If you don't double-check your measurements, it's possible that your cabinets, appliances or even the sink will not fit when you're ready to install. Inaccurate measurements can cause delays to the project
as well as unforeseen expenses. Flex Cabinets supplies a Design Team to make sure all concerns in your cabinet design are addressed at the beginning of your project. Also—storage, storage, storage! When designing a new kitchen, it's important to consider where small appliances will be stored and used, because there’s a tendency for appliances to accumulate, taking up precious counter space. Add storage solutions near your work area to organize the small appliances.
EHT: What are some common installation mistakes you’ve seen from inexperienced cabinet installers? Johnson: Once again, the biggest mistake comes from inaccu- rate measurements. Another common mistake is forgetting to leave room for the crown molding to be installed on top of the cabinets, as well as allowing proper distance around doors and windows. Let our Design Team make sure the kitchen design will look fabulous.
EHT: What are some of the newest trends in kitchen cabinet design? Johnson: Design is always an evolution, but whites, grays and natural wood colors are always leading the way in customer preference.
EHT: Anything else you’d like to add? Johnson: I'd like to stress that when Flex Cabinets says "best pricing," we mean it. For years, Flex Cabinets has been supply- ing builders, remodelers, builder developers, and multi-family builders of town homes and condos with a tremendous volume of cabinets. Orders of 50 or 100 or 200 kitchens are not unusual for Flex Cabinets. Because of this huge volume, www.flexcabinets.com has tremendous buying power, which translates to extremely low pricing on our website. We also have pricing for every budget and offer “buyer’s choices” from manufacturers at every price point. (Good, Better, Best).
