In The News


There was a time in the cabinet industry when DIY meant a trip to the lumberyard to buy plywood, drawer guides, and a can of stain, so you could “Do It Yourself”.  Today, it has a different meaning.  DIY, here at Kent Moore Cabinets, means ‘Design It Yourself’, with a little help from KMC, of course.

Cabinets are no longer just boxes with doors.  They are an extension of ourselves.  We don’t have to adapt ourselves to our kitchens; our kitchens are designed, and tailored to our needs and our lifestyles.  Individual client input is crucial to the design process, and to the level of satisfaction our customers demand.

When our customers sit down with us to DIY, what follows is a process. It is the evolution of ideas and wishes into the reality of a design for the individual, not the masses.  Each of our customers is unique in their tastes, and the functionality requirements of their kitchens.  To some, cooking is a necessary evil, to others, it is a passion.  A chef must function with his or her kitchen, not in spite of it.  That marriage of function and style is at the heart of DIY.

There are many more resources available today then there were some years ago when design flexibility meant getting to pick where you wanted to locate a bank of drawers.  The internet holds a wealth of design information, and more hardware possibilities than the average mind can comprehend.  If you can think of it, chances are someone already makes it.  So, you don’t need an advanced degree in calculus to DIY.  You just need the right cabinet company working with you to make your vision a reality.

So, some DIY, or ‘Design It Yourself’ questions to ask of your cabinet company:

Do you offer total design flexibility that keeps me from having to buy a ‘package’ with ten things just to get the two I’m looking for?

We do.

Do you have a showroom where I can look at, touch, and experience your products? 

Actually, we have five, with a sixth on the way.  Link to Showrooms

What do I do if something happens to my cabinets after they are installed?

We have a fully-staffed service and warranty department.  We understand that accidents happen.  Should one happen to you, a replacement part, manufactured right here in Texas, will be available to you along with the service support necessary.

Now you have all of the tools, and the information you need to DIY.  So, when your passion for a new kitchen drives you to take the next step, we’ll be here to guide you through the process.
