Providing Metro Detroit with Renovations Since 1985: An Interview with Millennium Handcrafted Cabinetry

By Kristen Bosse

Please describe a little bit about your company and the services you offer.

Millennium designs and manufactures custom cabinetry as well as a full service renovation company. We also offer complimentary design service to our customers.

What is your position at Millennium Handcrafted Cabinetry?

I am co-owner with my husband.

The computer graphics on your site show very impressive designs. Would you say you have a specific design style that has developed over the years?

Since we manufacture our own cabinets, we can do any design style that the customer wants. There are no restrictions to size or design.

What are some key qualities homeowners should expect from an experienced contracting business?

One of the key qualities we have is that the construction trades are our own employees, except for the plumber and the heat/cooling contractor. This ensures that the project will be done on a timely basis and the homeowners do not have to deal with individual trades. Andy runs each jobsite with a tight schedule that minimizes the construction disruption to a minimal. Each day our customers are provided with a detail list of the progress and a forecast of the next day schedule.

What are some new remodeling trends that have become popular in recent years?

For bathroom remodels, we are eliminating the shower curb and going with a curb less walk-in shower. In addition, people love the barn style sliding glass shower doors. Soffit removal remains a big part of kitchen remodels as well as the open floor plan between the kitchen and family room.

What do you say to people who claim that quality remodeling services are only available to affluent families?

Since we eliminate the middle man with our cabinet manufacturing and the in-house construction services we are able to pass the savings onto our customers.

What are some of the benefits to custom woodwork?

There are many benefits to custom cabinetry. First of all, the customers and designers get the design what they wish for. Our state-of-the art finishing department can match up any finish to an existing piece of furniture or photo. People think that the word "custom" means "cost" but really quite the contrary. Again, since we don't order our cabinets from another company or catalog we able to pass the savings to our clients.

What is the return value of custom woodwork compared to pre-made cabinets?

Well, we manufacture our cabinets quite differently than most custom or stock cabinet companies. We dowel construct the parts of the boxes together where most others staple and screw them together so ours are stronger and last longer. We also make our cabinets with full tops vs cabinets without. We take pride in the structural integrity and longevity of our cabinets.

What's the best way for people to get in contact with you?

Our phone number is 248.645.9005. They can also visit us on our website www.millenniumcabinetry.com. We also are active on Houzz, Facebook Twitter, and Pinterest.
