The distinctive warmth of custom-designed wooden kitchen and bathroom cabinetry is still without peer. Yet inefficient distribution often means such cabinetry is prohibitively priced. The key to making these products affordable usually lies in a company streamlining its arrangements with contractors and subcontractors.

Some companies, like Apex Kitchen and Bath, prefer to cut out subcontractors altogether. Owner Louis Plevritis sees this as one of the main reasons his business runs so efficiently its range of imported cabinetry, countertops and flooring goes straight to customers.

"We keep costs down by doing all the design, alteration and installation work. We have our own millwork woodshop on site, and to further streamline our business we keep only a limited inventory. Instead, we order each piece of stone and every cabinet individually, to suit the requirements of the project," says Plevritis.

Apex has certified designers who work on every project. They pride themselves on meeting their clients' design needs with creative solutions.

"Because we are the main contractor on the project, we develop a very close relationship with the client. We design the kitchen, incorporating the ideas discussed during the initial consultation, then carry out construction quickly and efficiently. The client is involved throughout the entire process, right up until the kitchen is installed by our team," Plevritis says.

For Apex Kitchen and Bath, completing a job on time is paramount. An entire kitchen remodel can usually be completed within three to four weeks.
