Remodeling a kitchen is an exciting but stressful time. One of the biggest expenses in a kitchen renovation are the cabinets and finding the right cabinet solution provider is important. Having a seamless cabinetry experience—from purchase through to install—helps ensure your home renovation project is free of delays, confusion, additional cost, and stress. That’s where The Cabinetry Lab comes in.
The Cabinetry Lab was created by Slate, a full-service remodeling firm. We are an end to end cabinet solution company and provide cabinetry to remodelers, home builders, designers, and real estate investors across the US.
Unlike other cabinet dealers, who simply facilitate the purchasing of cabinets, The Cabinetry Lab is run by home remodeling experts. This means we have everything installers and homeowners need throughout a kitchen renovation:
In the home improvement market today, there are plenty of cabinet dealers. The problem? Not all those cabinet dealers have specific remodeling experience. In fact, many of them have zero experience with home improvement, renovation, or remodeling. Because the dealers and the installers aren’t “speaking the same language,” this ends up hurting both the cabinet installers and the homeowners. It often makes for a slower, more costly, more anxiety-riddled build.
When the cabinet dealers don’t have remodeling experience or expertise, it can lead to massive project delays. If the cabinetry is improperly designed in the first place, this can lead to a homeowner’s worst-case scenario: reordering.
Especially with post-COVID-19 lead times, any material reorder can cause major disruptions to the project’s schedule.
When cabinet dealers aren’t aware of the ins and outs of the home remodeling industry, it creates a potentially confusing, frustrating project.
If the cabinet installers have questions but the cabinet dealers don’t have satisfactory answers, that leaves the installers to figure it out alone. That’s extra stress for the installers, but those repercussions hit the homeowners as well.
When an installer’s uncertainty leads to mistakes, project delays, or extra costs, that’s when homeowners feel the negative effects of working with a company that’s solely a cabinet dealer. You avoid that problem working with The Cabinetry Lab.
If part or all of a cabinet order needs to be repurchased because of improper design, that causes two major problems. One, it slows down the entire project. Two, it can mean extra costs for the installer, the homeowner, or both.
Project delays can mean anything from extra labor hours to more costs associated with a half-finished remodel.
Say, for example, a kitchen renovation is delayed. For a homeowner, that’s more nights spent eating out at restaurants or even potentially more nights in a hotel or other accommodation. These kinds of peripheral costs and stresses quickly add up.
Cabinet dealers are often great at selling cabinets but not always the right cabinets.
Once it goes to the install phase, though, problems can start emerging.
With The Cabinetry Lab:
When you work with a cabinet dealer who has specific renovation experience and knowledge, you get a partner throughout the entire cabinetry process.
You’re covered from initial purchase all the way through final installation. That continuity results in smoother, quicker, less costly home improvement projects.
