Why built to order cabinets?

Firstly, the word “custom” is used loosly in the cabinet industry to describe just about any cabinet line. But at McMillan, we believe the word “custom” means more than a few choices. That’s why we prefer to call the work we do “built to order”

Also, as a built to order cabinetmaker, we can offer a nearly limitless variety of woods, finishes, and detailing. Each of our projects is unique, created to fit a client’s needs and taste as perfectly as it fits the space.

We work with the finest materials

We source hardwood lumber from responsibly managed domestic sources, and select it for grain, color, and stability. Our plywood and sheet materials and adhesives are formaldehyde-free. We use recycled cores whenever practical. We assemble cabinets one at a time, and hand-fit each door and drawer. In short, we build cabinets the right way.

McMillan cabinets are hand built using high quality materials, so not surprisingly, they are not the cheapest cabinets on the market. But our pricing is actually quite competitive with the better factory-made cabinet lines, even though we’re making them one at a time. We sell our cabinets directly to you or your builder, avoiding the extra layer of expense built in to the dealer showroom system. Meaning, when you buy from McMillan Cabinetmakers, more of your cabinet dollar will go directly into the cost of producing your cabinets, and less into the cost of selling them to you.
