Now that our kitchens have becomethe heart of our homes, we're increasingly looking for high-end cabinetry with the look and durability of fine furniture.

It's a development that's been gathering pace over the last decade or so, says Steve Pfister, director of sales and marketing for Mouser Custom Cabinetry.

The other change is toward kitchens with more work space and appliances, as home chefs encourage family and friends to join them while they prepare a meal.

"Multiple sinks, preparation areas and ovens are more common, along with commercial cooktops, undercounter microwaves and warming drawers," he says. "Homeowners are also looking for two or three places to gather and eat together, such as around the kitchen island and at a dining table nearby."

Mouser Custom Cabinetry produces handcrafted cabinetry in one of ten wood selections, and five glazing choices.

"Maple and cherry are still our mainstays, but select alder and knotty alder, and quarter-sawn white oak, are gaining in popularity," he says.

The company offers many options, with 75 door styles and hundreds of finishes in solid colors, stains and glazes.

"Our designers guide homeowners through the whole process, finding out what's important to them, what's missing in their current kitchen and what appliances they need," says Pfister. "As experienced professionals, they can advise on the best color tiles for the backsplash, or the most suitable appliances."
