VIP Cabinet Experience
Bill & Elaine stopped into our showroom one day on a whim, after shopping for cabinets at a nearby big box hardware store. They were extremely frustrated with the experience that they had just had. They had to wait for a long period of time. The person that helped them didn't seem to know what they were doing, seemed rushed and was very impatient. They had seen our sign many times and figured that custom cabinetry would be much more expensive than the cabinets they would get at Home Depot or Lowe's, but after two terrible experiences, they figured it was worth seeing how much more expensive it would be to go with a custom shop like New Leaf Cabinets & Counters.
Our showroom and expert cabinet designers provided a vastly different cabinet shopping experience. Even with out an appointment, they were immediatley helped and had a far more enjoyable experience learning about our different cabinet and countertop options. When our price came back nearly 20% lower than both of their previous quotes they were shocked.
Better Cabinets, Lower Prices
Bill had taken the time to sketch out the measurements of his kitchen (see our how to measure your kitchen page for instructions), so Shane was able to quickly work up a cabinet layout and provide them with a quote. Bill was most impressed with the quality of the Yorktowne Cabinetry which features dovetailed hardwood drawer boxes with soft closing full extension drawer guides as a standard feature. Elaine loved the amount of custom accessories that due to the lower price, she could now afford. Because they were "getting up there" (her words not mine), they added roll out shelving to all of the lower cabinets so that they would not have to bend over or get on their hands and knees to access items on the lower shelves or back of the cabinets. She also added a tilt down tray in front of the sink to store sponges and scrub pads.
Deep Rich Stained Maple
They opted to go with a maple face frame and full overlay maple door with a rich and beautiful Rumberry stain. As with all cabinets made by Yorktowne, the finish carries a Lifetime warranty.
Like most people shopping for solid surface countertops in todays market, Bill & Elain wanted something beautiful, long lasting, scratch resistant, stain resistant, and most importantly maintenance free. They're previous countertops were a molded solid surface that had an extremely high resin and plastic content. Although they were stain free, they scratched very easily. After listening to their needs and wants, I was able to quickly determine that quartz would be the best product for their countertops. Because quartz counters are 93% natural stone and 7% epoxy based resin and coloring, they offer many of the benefits of granite countertops such as durability and scratch resistance, but because of that resin content, are also highly stain resistant and never require any sealing or other maintenance.
