Frequently Asked Questions
Who is DesignArt Studios?
We are a full service firm. Our team consists of licensed architects, certified interior designers and licensed building contractors who understand the building process. We will work with you to keep your projects on schedule and ensure a beautiful finished product that you can be proud of.
You can take advantage of our full design services, or we can work with you a la carte, the decision is up to you. We can help you from preliminary design, all the way to the construction and development, or we can customize our services to fit your needs.
Why should we spec our cabinets from a design studio shop when a local cabinet builder can offer better pricing?
While our products may not be the least expensive, we provide a high quality product and unique design that sets your project apart from others.
Ease of Doing Business
Our cabinetry comes ready to install, eliminating the need for additional customization and finishing in the field. You have one point of accountability for follow-up and completion of the job. We stand by our reputation as a professional design firm and will work with you until you are satisfied. We strive to simplify your life by offering quality products and a simplified business process that meets your needs.
Finishes- Quality, Durability and Consistency
Even skilled carpenters and cabinet makers are unfortunately limited by strict California EPA laws. This means that the finishes they provide are often weak and and can fade and wear off after install. Our Cabinetry is sourced outside of California, in a controlled manufacturing environment, resulting in a stronger, more durable finish.
Factory finishes are also more consistent. We provide you with door samples, prior to ordering, that will be consistent with the finish on the cabinets you receive. There is no guesswork and no need to repaint or refinish your cabinets.
Environmentally Friendly Product
One or more of our cabinet lines is a recyclable and sustainable product. Zero VOC's in the stains, paints sealers etc. 100% recycled hardware made completely of metal and polymers, no plastic. PureBond Plywood Construction, less weight, 100% FSC (Forestry Stewardship Council), higher resistance and reduces field failures than MDF and regular plywood.
Our cabinet lines offer a lifetime warranty on factory parts and finishes. Many local cabinet makers and painters do not offer a warranty on parts or finishes.
