As we move into April our excitement over KBIS—the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, being held April 19-21 in New Orleans—is really starting to grow. There is a lot to look forward to at KBIS, and we are looking forward to bringing back fresh new ideas for our clients.
Our friends at Wood-Mode Fine Custom Cabinetry have recently updated their website and we think it looks absolutely fabulous! The new layout is gorgeous, and the navigation is even more intuitive and user-friendly than the previous version. We love that Wood-Mode’s commitment to high-quality customer service and flawless design extends even to their own website, and we would love to give you a mini-tour of their “new look.”
We wanted to take a brief moment to welcome the newest member to our design team at Cabinets & Designs. Bill Currier is a Houston native who attained certification as a Certified Kitchen Designer, (CKD) in 1984.
We hope you enjoyed last weeks’ blog on reorganizing your kitchen, and that you will find this week’s topic—reorganizing your bathroom—just as useful.
The next best thing to a total kitchen makeover is a reorganization of your kitchen; reorganization makes your kitchen feel new, but can be done on a smaller budget. Making small changes can yield big results, so let’s take a look at some of our favorite ways to get more out of what you already have in your kitchen.
Their outstanding reputation and longevity speaks for itself. By moving with the times, all the while remaining rooted in their core values, Wood-Mode has been a trusted name in cabinetry for over sixty years.
There are things you want every bathroom to be: practical, because of course it must function; relaxing, because we spend time bathing, or getting ready, or freshening up in a bathroom; tasteful, because it should reflect something about you, while also feeling like an extension of your house.
White kitchens have surged and resurged since the dawn of kitchen design. Kitchens became the “heart of the home” in the 1920’s and have only continued to grow as the most used room in the home. Over the years, white kitchens have gained and seemingly lost popularity only to regain it a few years later. I believe they have established themselves on the list of lifelong trends. If done right, a white kitchen is classic and timeless.
Have you decided to renovate your kitchen, but you don’t know where to start? Perhaps you are on a budget, and you need to prioritize a list of projects to be completed over time. Kitchen remodeling remains high on the list of best return-on-investment projects for your home; they can earn you an 80 percent or better ROI on resale value. Deciding the order in which to complete a long list of renovations is often determined by constraints such as budget and time, but it is also important to consider how one step in the process will affect the next step.
Social media is such a great way to share design ideas and find new inspiration. Here at Cabinets & Designs, we love using social media to connect with our clients and potential clients; have you liked our Facebook page, followed us on Twitter, and checked out our YouTube channel? We love to hear from you via these channels to answer your design and renovation questions, and to share information with you about what is going on in the industry, as well as in our showroom.
This is the time of year when people start thinking, “Boy, it would be great to have a brand new kitchen to entertain in during the holidays!” If you start now, you may have the finished product in time to show it off at a New Year’s Eve or Super Bowl party!
David Steffan, Sr., is the founder and president of Cabinets & Designs. Mr. Steffan sat down with his daughter, Maria, and asked him to reflect on the last forty years in the kitchen and bath industry. In this interview David Steffan—affectionately known as “Senior”—shares the story of how he got his start in the kitchen and bath industry, and how that led him to open Cabinets & Designs some forty years ago.
This month Cabinets & Designs is celebrating our 40th anniversary. We are so honored that so many Houstonians chose us—decade after decade after decade after decade!—to make their homes more beautiful and functional.
It’s no secret that many of our favorite countertop products come from Silestone by Cosentino, and we always look forward to what they will bring to the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show (KBIS) each year. Silestone products are the perfect combination of form and function. Silestone is created by using natural quartz, which is intrinsically hard and resilient. As the only countertop with bacteriostatic protection a Silestone by Cosentino countertop guarantees maximum hygiene on its surfaces. Silestone is the only countertop to feature the combination of the following:• Built-in Microban protection• National Sanitation Foundation Certification• GREENGUARD Indoor Air Quality Certification
Just like the laundry room, your closet is a hidden room in your house but one where organization isincredibly important. Often times we overlook our closets because they are out of sight. When clients
Are you inspired by nature? Do you spend as much time enjoying the great outdoors as possible? You can translate your love of nature into interior décor that is both rustic and elegant. Whether you are implementing these changes during a major renovation, or making small, cosmetic changes to bring natural enhancement to your home, your home’s interior design can reflect an outdoor look while remaining comfortable for your friends and family.
It’s no secret that we are huge fans of Wood-Mode fine custom cabinetry, and as Houston’s #1 Wood-Mode Exclusive Lifestyle Designs Showroom we always look forward to seeing their latest innovations. Wood-Mode recently introduced walnut into their family of cabinetry options, and we could not be more pleased. Walnut is a popular finish, and for good reason; walnut is a strong, durable wood that is also lightweight—perfect for cabinetry. In addition, walnut has great finishing and woodworking qualities which finish nicely. Prized for veneer panels, furniture, doors, and cabinetry, walnut lends warmth and richness to any room.
If you are building a new home, or remodeling an existing one, you will sooner or later be confronted with options on whether or not to upgrade various materials that are specified in your project. When budgets are a consideration it is extremely important that you make the right choices. Aside from your own personal pleasure or comfort, we believe decisions should be based on how certain upgrades could affect the future value and sale-ability of your home should you desire to sell it.
You may have noticed a bit of a theme running through our blog posts this month. We’ve talked about the importance and impact of buying American, and learned more about how to find green products and environmentally-conscious companies that make them. The same concept underlies both of these previous topics, and that concept is quality. Specifically, we know that our clients are seeking the highest quality craftsmanship when it comes to achieving the home of their dreams. We respond to that desire by giving our clients access to high-quality products made by responsible, established companies.
Opaque paints are growing in popularity among homeowners who are remodeling their kitchens. Our line of Brookhaven cabinetry gives you the most beautiful, varied options in paint colors; in addition, the paint is applied and the cabinets finished in an intensive, multi-step finishing process which results in more durable wear.
Our clients are knowledgeable, stylish, and up on all of the latest trends, and we take notice when they ask questions. In addition to growing inquiries about products made in America, we are hearing more questions from clients about green products. Environmentally conscious homeowners want products sourced and manufactured in a responsible, earth-friendly way. This week’s blog is dedicated to exploring products that can help your next renovation ‘go green.’
We have noticed a trend among both our new clients, and our repeat customers: the desire to buy American. More than ever before our clients are coming in to start projects, and asking how they can invest in their homes while also investing in American-made products. These people know that when we buy products made in America we are supporting manufacturing, and manufacturing is the cornerstone of a solid economy. Part of being an educated consumer is knowing the impact of what we buy on our economy, from the local to the national level, and making informed decisions that benefit our lives, our home, and our country.
Describe your background info and how you got into your current position? I grew up in the kitchen business & went to work for my dad in 1975 (he was the Wood-Mode rep before me). I was lucky to have my dad as my mentor since he was a pioneer in the sales & design of custom manufactured kitchens. I started out servicing builder business and eventually got involved in the retail kitchen business before taking over the rep territory in 1992.
war * ran * ty – noun: a usually written guarantee of the integrity of a product and of the maker’s responsibility for the repair or replacement of defective parts.The warranty is an important part of product guarantees, but when we make big purchases we don’t always read the fine print as carefully as we should. Anytime you endeavor to make a major purchase—be it cabinetry, appliances, or other household goods—it is important to determine what warranties are offered and what they require for you to implement them should you experience loss or damage. Most job-site cabinetry offers a one-year warranty, while factory cabinetry offers a warranty between three and ten years. Our lines of Wood-Mode and Brookhaven Cabinetry offer a Limited Lifetime Warranty, which offers you extensive, comprehensive protection from damages or loss.
Are you itching to give your kitchen, bathroom, or bedroom a new look? If you don’t have the time or the budget to start a major remodeling project right now, you can still achieve a big impact by making small changes. Here are a few of our favorite tips for freshening up any room of your house with small, relatively inexpensive changes.
At Cabinets & Designs we do so much more than kitchens and baths! We can help you transform any room of your home into something special. One of our most exciting projects recently has been the creation of a custom gun room for a client in Hockley, TX. New cabinet installations can help you repurpose any space in your home to make that space more useful and enjoyable for you and your family.
Vertical space is often unused space. Take a slow walk around your house; observe the vertical space available in each room, including bathrooms and closets. Think about each room, and take note of places where you think the room could benefit from additional storage using the available vertical space. What does each room need, or how could each room benefit, from the increased use of space? Using vertical space is great for spaces like high rises or small kitchens, where going “up” with cabinetry is beneficial for additional storage, particularly if you do not have a lot of closet space, or a basement, attic, or garage.

Her experience, talent and attention to detail make her an asset to the team. Grace took some time to answer a few questions so that you could get to know her better. Enjoy!
Most of us don’t do much in our laundry room besides the laundry, right? Even if it is a combined space—like a laundry/sewing room or laundry/bathroom—most of us think of the laundry as a work area; like most work areas, a few thoughtful updates can make that area work for you.
In last week’s blog we talked about some of the latest interior features for cabinetry. This week we’re talking about pantries: styles, features, options and the specialized storage and organization they can offer you when designing--or redesigning--your kitchen.
A beautiful new exterior isn’t the only design improvement you get when upgrading cabinetry; advancements in interior design features have improved efficiency, organization and accessibility for interior cabinet spaces. From kitchen remodels to home offices and media rooms, modern cabinetry can offer you improved space utilization in just about any room in your house. In the Bedroom
Cabinets & Designs is going to feature a member of our team once a month in a blog. We chose to start with the legend himself, the founder and owner of Cabinets & Designs, David Steffan, Sr.
All finishes are not created equal. Multiple hand and machine sanding and oven-baked drying operations are used on every finish to insure long-lasting quality and durability. Wood-Mode/Brookhaven use a process of wetting the wood to raise the grain, along with one-and two-step hand staining, producing deep colors with enhanced wood grain and beauty. Uniform color in the wood is achieved with toning and spray staining applications. Catalyzed sealer, hand-sealer sanding, spec distressing and catalyzed matte or standard sheen varnish spray operations are used to create lifetime durability and beauty on our stained custom cabinet wood products. Wood-Mode’s catalyzed oven-baked varnish top coat with ultraviolet screen inhibitors provides maximum resistance to scuffing, dents, moisture, UV fade and most household chemicals. The opaque finishes receive high quality sealer, primer and catalyzed color coats to insure beauty and lifetime durability. An extensive hand-sanding operation is performed between each spray application. A multi-step hand-buffing process creates the smoothest, richest patina imaginable.
Are you thinking about an office remodel, or are you getting ready to build a new office facility? If you are embarking on a commercial project that requires installing new cabinetry we would love to help you! Our designers can help you choose the right cabinets for your project, as well as create an attractive and functional design for your offices. When in doubt we always recommend you Ask An Expert!
A media room is a place in your home that could benefit from the addition of cabinetry. Are you ready to dedicate an entire room to an entertainment area? Or are you looking to make your current family room/media room hybrid a more functional space? Either way, we offer design and cabinetry solutions that will make a difference. Like the kitchen, a media room is a space where we are likely to spend a lot of our time when we are at home, so installing cabinets serves to both organize the space and provide aesthetic appeal. After all a media room is full of equipment, right? DVDs and CDs (and their cases), wires and chargers, books and manuals, not to mention all of the high-tech toys themselves: gaming consoles and controllers, media players and remote controls, speakers...the list goes on and on. Looking for ideas? Read on!
We have received so many great questions on our ASK THE EXPERT page on our website that we thought we would share them with you. We figured if one person had a question, surely someone else would be wondering the same thing. We hope you find our answers helpful and informative.

When you’re comparison shopping for new cabinets, one consideration should be the warranty. Obviously, various manufacturers will offer different warranties. However, manufacturers may also offer different warranties for their various product lines. Typically, the higher the quality of the cabinetry line, the better the warranty. Since your cabinets are meant to last, make sure your warranty will, too. The first thing to consider when comparing warranties is the coverage period. Most warranties fall into one of three categories: one year, five year, or lifetime. High quality cabinets should always come with a lifetime warranty. If a manufacturer is not willing to stand behind its product, you should be leery. However, not all lifetime warranties are created equal. Some manufacturers consider 10 years a lifetime. Unless you are planning on moving or remodeling in 10 years, it is probably not what you would consider a lifetime. Instead, look for a warranty that covers the cabinets for the full period of time you will live with them. Both the Wood-Mode and Brookhaven Cabinetry lines offer limited lifetime warranties that cover your cabinets for as long as you own your home.If the period of coverage is only limited by how long you own the cabinets, the next consideration is what exactly is covered by the warranty. It is standard to cover defects in workmanship or materials for the original owner at the original installation site. Some manufacturers will cover drawer slides and hinges, as well. Generally, any defects arising from misuse, neglect or modification of the product will not be covered by a standard warranty. Since even lifetime warranties differ on what will or will not be covered, you should carefully review the options with your sales person before deciding on your cabinets. As some warranties vary by state, your sales professional should also be able to tell you which exclusions apply where you live. Ideally, you won’t have any claims. However, you need to make sure you know what compensation you will receive if you do make a claim. Most companies provide repair or replacement of the defective part. While the cost of replacement may be covered, additional costs may ensue if the workmen need to remove countertops or appliances during the repair. Always check with your dealer so you know their policies ahead of time.Your manufacturer’s warranty is only as good as the company ensuring it. Should you need to make a claim, you’ll have to go through the company who initially installed the cabinets. Therefore, you should start by choosing a reputable, established dealer in your area. Make sure to ask as many questions of your salesperson to feel comfortable with the terms of your warranty and the people backing it. If your warranty is for a lifetime, you should want a relationship with the company to last as long.
As Father’s Day approaches, pictures of Dad grilling steaks while drinking a beer with his buddies spring to mind. However, newer generations may be replacing this quintessential image with a more sophisticated version of Dad: placing the finishing touches on a Boeuf Bourguignon while sipping a wine from the accompanying region. We’ve noticed that men have become more involved in their kitchen makeovers, and think it’s because they are spending more time in the kitchen. We have a few theories as to why:The kitchen has become the heart of the home. Contrary to popular belief this has not always been the case. In the early and mid-twentieth century, kitchens had a utilitarian function and design, serving as a “work-place” for stay at home moms. When the work was done, the family gathered in a separate, aptly named, “family room.” However, as women entered the workforce and household chores became divided more equally between the couple, kitchens grew to accommodate families working together. The kitchens became large enough for two or more cooks, enabling men to help their wives prepare the family meal. In addition, the once separate family room became integrated into the kitchen design, allowing children more time with their busy parents. In modern constructions, a large percentage of space is dedicated to these multi-functioning kitchen/dining/family rooms; and an equally large percentage of time is spent there. It’s no wonder Dad feels more comfortable in the kitchen.Men love gadgets. As a result of the expanded size and function of the kitchen, they became more technologically advanced. Large screen TVs, easily viewed while cooking, mean Dad never has to miss the big game while helping out. Computers integrated into the front of the fridge or in the cabinetry allow him to follow along with a cooking demonstration in real time, anytime. While performing these tasks on large, professional-grade ranges from names like Wolf, make him feel like a professional chef.Men follow trends. Let’s face it, men want to be cool. The rise of cooking shows and macho celebrity chefs probably has much to do with men hitting the gourmet aisles in the supermarket. The panache of the Galloping Gourmet has been replaced by the bravado of Gordon Ramsey coupled with the excitement of game shows. Shows like Iron Chef have turned cooking into a sport, a competition, and men do love sports. Many of these shows, such as Top Chef, emphasize the pairing of food and wine, and restaurants often have pairings on their menus. Cigar bars have given way to wine bars, and men have followed suit. Instead of humidors filled with Monte Cristos, men have begun collecting rare wines, housed in refrigerated storage units from Sub-Zero. Keeping up with the Joneses means keeping up with their wine collection.Of course, the reason may be as simple as women love men who can cook. So, this Father’s Day encourage Dad’s love of fine food and wine; but, remember, even the best chefs like a night out.
Are you considering custom cabinetry for your kitchen? Incorporating custom cabinets can enhance the beauty of your kitchen while adding resale value to your home, since they can be customized to coordinate with your home décor. However, in order to maintain the perfect balance between beauty and durability of cabinets, you need to make sure they are built of the right species of wood for you. Here are some of the most popular woods used in custom cabinetry. Take your pick:
Kitchen cabinets add definition to your kitchen and also help in maximizing utilization of available space. This comes in handy particularly if you have a habit of keeping your kitchen chock full of supplies at all times. Cabinets will play an even bigger role in keeping your kitchen organized if you have a smaller kitchen with limited available space. There are two main kinds of cabinets that you can have in your kitchen, with face frames or frameless. Both will serve you well, but frameless cabinets have some significant advantages over cabinets with face frames. These include:
Cluttered bathroom cabinets are a frequent sight. Not only do they look bad but they can also make it difficult for you to locate required items especially when you are in a hurry. Moreover, people with cluttered bathroom cabinets sometimes repurchase items that they already have but were not able to locate. However it is not very difficult to organize a bathroom cabinet in a useful manner and keep it neat with a little conscious effort. The first step towards organizing your bathroom cabinet is to take out all the stuff and then sort them into similar categories. For example, the razor, shaving cream and after-shave would belong to the same space. Next you should scrupulously discard anything that you are not using as well as those items that are way past the expiration dates. This step would alone reduce a lot of clutter and make space for the required stuff.After you have sorted all the required items into groups you can begin the process of arranging them in the cabinet. One useful tip in this step would be to place things that you use more frequently in the lower shelves and those that you use less frequently to rarely in the upper ones. If you have under-counter storage, then you should invest in boxes or bins - whichever fits best in the available space. A three-drawer plastic unit can be very useful, as it will help you keep three groups of items neatly organized.After you have successfully organized your bathroom cabinet, you should keep in mind that in order to maintain it that way you should develop the habit of keeping items back in their designated places after using them. Also keep track of expiration dates, other than needlessly occupying space; they can also be harmful if used. When it comes time to remodel your bathroom, consider integrating organization options into your new cabinets. Our expert designers can help you find the right cabinets to fit your needs.

Media centers are a source of great joy to movie and sports buff. They provide endless hours of entertainment whether the owner wants to use them alone or share the experience with like-minded friends and family members. But behind all this fun lies the reality of a tangled mess of wires and cables and discs scattered here and there separated from their cases, or worse, placed in the wrong cases. All this can dampen the enjoyment home media centers can provide. If you are someone who is facing the problem of a disorganized media center, then you might be familiar with instances when you couldn't find the remote or the DVD that you wanted to see. The only way to prevent such undesired occurrences is to keep the media center well-organized. In order to optimally organize your home media center you would need to buy a few things. These are mostly storage boxes meant for DVDs, CDS and video games; also you can get a media rack. You would also need to purchase cable/wire tubing and ties. After you have purchased all this stuff, you can set about getting your media center organized. Begin by unplugging all wiring and cables and then untangling them. Once you have untangled the mess of wires reconnect them to the various devices and pass the wires/cables through the slit in the wire tubing. This will prevent the wires and cables from entangling in future.
The kitchen might just be among the most difficult spaces to organize, but it is certainly not unconquerable. In this article we will show you how the application of some simple strategies will transform even the most badly organized kitchens into the most well organized ones. The most important principle that one should keep in mind while organizing any space is to discard stuff that is not required. A lot of us have the tendency of keeping items that we don't use and probably never will, so even if these things are in a working condition they are effectively useless and taking up unnecessary space. It's a lot better to donate such items to people who might use them.
