Cabinet Shopping? 5 Can’t-Miss Spots in the Hudson Valley

Providing an essential storage solution that stretches coherently across a multitude of surfaces and acts as a beaconing backdrop behind it all, cabinets play a central role in the experience of an interior, and especially of a kitchen. As such, many important considerations come into play when choosing case goods and cabinetry. From form and style to hardware and decorative elements, moldings, and a spectrum of surface veneers and finishes, many factors are at play in such design decisions, and small details can deliver a large impact.

Hudson Valley homeowners, builders, interior designers, and architects alike benefit from the abundance of cabinetry makers and retailers located throughout the region, which offer a wide array of design and sourcing options—including cabinets made from sustainable materials, a bevy of bespoke built-ins, cohesive forms and clean lines, and contemporary takes on traditional millwork. If you’re getting ready to build your dream home from scratch or remodel your existing kitchen, this list of locally owned and operated Hudson Valley cabinetry businesses will be your best friend, building on the broad appeal of contemporary design.
