Miseno Cabinetry is an online design service selling American made, hand-crafted custom cabinetry at a great value exclusively to Build.com customers through Build.com. Our exclusive patented methodology allows you to work with us remotely to design your dream kitchen or bath from anywhere in the country, knowing that your measurements and design will always be accurate. Miseno is our cabinet brand. Miseno Cabinetry is the exclusive dealer of Miseno Cabinetry, and Build.com is the only place to find Miseno Cabinetry.
Simply put: quality, service and value. Unlike local dealers, or online Chinese cabinet vendors, we only offer a fully-loaded, high quality product. We offer standard features like 3/4" plywood and top quality soft-close hardware. Our finishes are hand-applied and oven cured with quality stains and varnishes that will last a lifetime. We should know, we've been building these cabinets for over 35 years, and, with lifetimes of experience at our factory, our seasoned craftspeople will build your custom kitchen to the highest quality standards.
While designing your kitchen, you will be guided from start to finish and informed by experts who can answer your questions and help you make the tough design decisions. Of course, our partnership with Build.com means that you will receive the level of post-purchase customer service that you expect, at a value that can't be beaten. The real question is: Why wouldn't I buy my cabinets from Build.com and Miseno Cabinetry?
We have a simple, three step design process to help you get the kitchen or bath of your dreams:
Step 1: Fill out the Project Planner , and be sure to attach your initial measurement documents. One of our Design Coordinators will get in touch with you to confirm your details.
Step 2: We design your kitchen, bath, or other space based on this information and send you a complimentary 3D design and cabinetry quote. Once you’ve reviewed your quote, please call us to schedule an appointment with an expert designer and order cabinetry samples to help make your selections.
Step 3: You work one-on-one with the personal designer, on the phone and by way of virtual meetings, where you will add input to the design, and view the changes in real-time. They will get your measurement confirmation, either by having you double-check your own, or by using our Digital Photogrammetry technology. They will then help you finalize your order and pay through Build.com.
Although we do not visit your home, we have the ability to design, measure, and show you the quality of our products through our website, sample program, virtual design and digital photo measuring. We can design and provide cabinetry for kitchens, bathrooms, offices, entertainment centers, mud rooms—you name it!
We do not offer installation, but our cabinetry does come fully assembled, unless specified by your personal designer, and ready to install with a guided floor plan and installation guide. We also have a customer service team that can speak with you or your cabinet installer to answer any and all questions about your cabinetry or design. If you don't have an installer, your designer may be able to assist you in finding one.
We do recommend a licensed professional to install Miseno cabinets. It's important that the cabinets are installed secure and level. Cutting fillers and mitering moldings is also common and can be complicated even for an experienced installer.
Miseno Cabinetry has no minimum order requirement. We will do any full remodel job for a Kitchen, Bathroom, Mudroom, Laundry Room or other cabinetry project. We will not attempt to match, contrast, or compliment our cabinetry with your existing cabinetry. We do not design kitchen island-only requests as we will only design kitchen islands as part of a full kitchen remodel. Of course, Miseno Cabinetry can provide cabinetry for new construction as well!
Absolutely! You can send us a 3x3 color sample on your desired wood species or we can match any Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore color- all you have to do is tell us the color name and number! Our factory will then produce a sample door on the style of your choice for your approval to ensure that we produce your cabinetry exactly as you're expecting! Because we are formulating a finish specifically for you, a custom color overlay door sample is $250 and a custom inset door sample is $350. Your designer will deduct all sample purchases from your final cabinetry purchase.
Miseno Cabinetry will design and sell you beautiful cabinetry, but you should speak to your Build.com representative to get the best deals on the best appliances, hardware and all of your other building needs.
We do not offer cabinetry refacing and do not sell door and drawer fronts only.
Custom cabinetry means that we offer over 10,000 skus that can be upgraded and modified 550 different ways. We can also change the height, width and depth of our cabinetry up to 1/16 of an inch for an upcharge. Custom cabinetry also means that every item is built and finished to order specifically as you selected! For this reason, Miseno cabinets are not returnable.
Nomenclature is a term used in the cabinet industry that describes the cabinet, molding or component. It is typically a code. For example, a butt door cabinet that is 36" wide x 42" high has a nomenclature 2W3642.
No- you'll never pay a design fee! The design process is a complimentary service we offer to all Build.com customers who display interest in Miseno Cabinetry and who submit the required information to receive a quote. We quote prices based on the design, so it is also a necessary step in order to purchase cabinetry through us. Even when you’re working with your personal designer there is still no obligation to buy and you will not be charged for our design services.
It can take anywhere from 3-4 business days from the time your information has been verified by one of our design coordinators to the time you receive your quote via e-mail. You will receive 3D renders along with your quote – this will represent a working design. From there, a design coordinator can schedule a phone or virtual appointment with you to meet your personal designer who can go over every detail and make changes if necessary.
We require wall measurements, window and door measurements and their location. Please also be sure to include any obstacles, such as soffits, beams, bump outs, radiators, baseboards etc. Submitting pictures with your floorplan will also help our team create an accurate design which will ultimately result in a successful kitchen remodel!
Our digital photogrammetry is used for verifying measurements for a final design only, and not for measuring a kitchen to get an initial quote.
We require at least the widths of the appliances you intend to use in your new kitchen to provide an accurate initial quote. During the design process, they can be changed if need be. We also need some idea of where they’ll be placed – it should be apparent on any design or floor plan you submit to us. If it is completely up to us, please indicate this. When we finalize your design, we will need all of the model numbers for your appliances. This is to ensure that the cabinets you are buying will indeed fit with your exact appliances.
Our design process is different from many show rooms or big box stores, where you’ll be handed a plan and tasked with figuring most of it out for yourself. We design with you, virtually. Once you’ve received your initial quote, if you like the price and what you see, you can work with a designer here on staff to refine your design. At this point, you’ll be seeing the plan on their computer screens in two and three dimensions. We feel that this is a much more exciting and informative way to digest the information in your design.
Everything we do is personalized, and to do it properly takes time. The possibilities with our cabinetry are endless, and this makes it impossible to give individualized pricing.
Of course not! We can provide an initial design for the largest cabinet project, most likely the kitchen, and if you like what you see, your personal designer will provide designs for all other rooms.
Don't worry if you can't finish your design request in a single session. When you return to the site and select "Request Design," entering your name and e-mail again will bring up your Project Planner exactly where you left off!
A linear foot estimate is just that – an estimate. We deal in quotes, not estimates. When you receive your quote from us based on your initial design that is a working quote. You could place the order that day if you so chose, and receive exactly the cabinets which make up that design and pay exactly what's quoted.
This differs from an estimate in two appreciable ways: One, an estimate isn’t a guarantee of price. It’s a number to draw you in – if you’ve heard the term “lowball estimate,” then you understand that estimates are often low on purpose to get you interested. Our quotes are for exactly what you see – there is no lowballing. Two, an estimate doesn’t give you any idea of what you would or wouldn’t get. Our quotes are complete designs tailored to your specific space and requests.
A Miseno Cabinetry personal designer will assist you with your cabinetry layout and selections answering any questions or concerns you may have. You will work with them through virtual appointment, phone conferences and e-mail communication. They will also update your design and price along the way so that you can rest assure you've made all the right choices at the time of closing.
Plan to work with a designer for about three weeks. This could be longer or shorter depending on your pace and preparedness, but most customers will want to see a few design revisions before finalizing on their designs.
Your designer will send you a virtual meeting link. You can log-in from any computer or mobile device, but we recommend a large viewing screen. Your designer will also give you a phone call. Once you're logged in, you'll see your designer's computer screen and can navigate through your design in real time. You'll be able to request and view changes to your floor plan, as well as see elevations and perspective drawings of all of your changes.
Phone appointments usually take no more than an hour. Virtual design appointments are scheduled for two hours, but seldom run that long. Finalizing virtual appointments take between 1-4 hours depending on the intricacy of your design.
After you've received your initial design and quote, all you have to do is call or e-mail us, it's that easy! A design coordinator can assist you.
No, our process requires you to have an initial design and quote. Filling out your Project Planner is easy - just click on the "Request Design" button at the top of this page.
While your personal designer will provide you with detailed floor plans and elevations at the time of closing, they will not provide template square footage for countertops, backsplashes or hardware count for cabinetry.
To avoid any confusion, we recommend being 100% sure at the time of order placement that your design, appliances and style selections are accurate. However, you have three days to cancel or change your order. After those three days, your order will release into the production phase and cannot be changed or cancelled for any reason as it is custom built just for you.
While you are browsing door styles, you can order a sample by clicking on the "Order Sample" cart. The default selection is a Natural Maple finish. You can change your finish selection by choosing a color under the choose color menu, underneath the door's description.
It usually takes about 10 business days to ship a door sample to your home from our factory. This is because each door sample is crafted to order. Color samples, on the other hand, usually ship to your home in 3-5 business days.
There is no charge for our complimentary, solid wood color chips and a door sample is only $30. Your designer will also deduct all sample purchases from your final cabinetry purchase.
We provide complimentary 2nd Day Air shipping for all sample doors and color chips.
A complimentary color chip is 5.5" x 4.5". All color chips are solid wood.
An overlay door sample is 13" x 16" and an inset door sample is 16" x 26". An overlay door sample does not represent the drawer front style but an inset door will include the frame and drawer front.
We can verify your room dimensions using a state-of-the-art, patented technology called photogrammetry. Once you are working with your cabinetry designer, a Miseno Cabinetry measure tech will e-mail you a digital target and diagrams on how to take proper photos. The digital target is a standard 8 ½” x 11” piece of paper that you can print and tape flat to your walls. You then take a series of pictures of each wall following the diagrams with the digital targets visible in the photos. A Miseno Cabinetry measure tech can answer any and all questions you may have.
We guarantee that this process is accurate up to 1/8” of an inch and Miseno Cabinetry takes responsibility for the room dimensions and fit of the cabinets. To be eligible for our digital photogrammetry, you must be able to fit the entire height of your kitchen – floor-to-ceiling – in one digital photograph without using the panorama option. Spaces that are too cramped may not be eligible, as it may not be possible to obtain a clear reading.
If you or your installer can provide accurate measurements, we can use that as well. Your personal designer can assist you in obtaining the needed measurements to ensure an accurate fit.
My Dream Kitchen™ pricing allows you to gauge the price of a project based on the selections you make and an example project. On the My Dream Kitchen™ page you will the examples you can choose from. You can download floor plans and item lists, view alternate angles, and ultimately select the example which best represents the project you are considering. Then, when you are browsing door styles, the My Dream Kitchen™ pricing will update based on the door style and color selection you are currently viewing.
My Dream Kitchen™ works by comparing the styles and colors you choose (each of which has a different price point associated with it), to a project with known dimensions and scope. You select which project most closely matches your own, both in terms of level of design (how decorative or functional), and dimensions. You can read more about each project in the descriptions when you click on them. You can view their dimensions by downloading the floor plan as a PDF. While it's highly unlikely that a Dream Kitchen will exactly match your project in size and scope, you should be able to approximate if the style and color you are choosing will fit with your investment level.
The default color for each door style is Maple - Natural. If you are seeing Maple - Natural it means that the color you were just considering is not available on the door you are currently considering. Try choosing another door or changing your color.
Tinted varnish is the technical term for our painted finishes. Three tinted coats of catalyzed material are uniformly applied to Maple and Oak cabinetry. Light sanding between coats assures a smooth finish. The finish is oven cured for durability.
A specialty finish is a hand-applied technique that goes above and beyond our stains, tinted varnishes and glazes. We offer chateaux, cottage, old world distressing and villa which are available on a multitude of finishes. We also offer amaretto, bordeaux, licorice, homestead red, and homestead fog which are specific finishes.
Contrary to popular belief, glazing is not a protective top-coat that you pay extra for. A glaze is actually a second color which is applied during the finishing process and is used to accent the woodworking elements of your door. It is applied to the front of the door, and then wiped-off by hand, so that areas of heavily concentrated glaze remain in the nooks and crannies – a technical term called “hang-up.” Because of this, you may not get the full benefit of glazing from a flat slab door or a Shaker door – you’ll see a lot less of the glaze, even though the overall color is hued, because there’s nowhere for the glaze to hang up. It is a good idea to glaze a beaded or roped door, as it will highlight those woodworking features.
Like other custom cabinetry manufacturers, Miseno uses engineered hardwoods in some construction applications. Some door styles are made with MDF center panels (these are labeled “veneer recessed center panel” on the website). On the finished end panels of stained cabinets, the MDF veneer is the second-to-last veneer in the plywood, with the last (outermost) veneer being the hardwood of your choice. This prevents the telegraphing of any voids in the inner plies from showing through to the finish. For tinted varnish cabinets, the outermost veneer on cabinets with a finished end panel is MDF. This gives the cabinet finish a smooth surface to adhere to and creates a glass-like smoothness and imperfection-free painted finish. Sometimes, if your order contains 5-piece drawer fronts, we include a ¼” hardboard (Masonite) filler to ensure that the drawer front fits snuggly and securely to the drawer box. Some specialty cabinets, like our tambour doors, will be made with an engineered material as well, as it is the best available material for the given purpose. None of the stiles and rails on any of our doors come in an MDF or Particle board construction, and our face frames are always made out of the hardwood of your choice.
*Effective March 18th, all maple cabinet doors and five-piece headers with a solid center panel finished in a Tinted Varnish and its variations (i.e., painted finishes and glazed painted finishes) will be upgraded to an MDF center panel. MDF is better suited to handle the changes in temperature, humidity or atmospheric pressure that cabinets experience over their lifetime which can cause the finish to crack, the doors to swell or raw wood to be exposed. MDF center panel construction will help mitigate these effects and keep your cabinetry looking pristine longer. This change does not apply to any oak doors, slab doors, stained maple doors or tinted varnish doors with a distressed finish.
The mounting screws are not included with your cabinetry and should be provided by your installer. We recommend using #8x2.5" screws and washers.
An average Miseno Custom Cabinetry kitchen costs between $12,500-$17,500, all things being equal. For example, a 10' x 15' kitchen with an 8' island in our Bridgewater door style (a simple shaker door) with a stained finish on maple would cost about $15,000 delivered. That same kitchen would cost about $25,000 in our very decorative Bellville door with a painted finish.
Your kitchen cost can vary greatly depending on the door style, wood species, decorative elements, finish, and accessories. With so many choices, we customize our design and quote just for you. To get started on receiving a quote for your project, please click "Request Design" at the top of the page.
All payments go through the Build.com payment page.
Please see Build.com for a list of accepted payment methods.
You must check out in full at time of order. However, your credit card will not be charged until the cabinets ship. In the meantime it will show as a pending charge on your credit card statement.
Shipping is included in every quote we send out. Unlike other cabinetry companies, we don’t charge different prices depending on where you live.
Door style, wood species, and finish all play a large part in determining your cabinetry price. Of course, the number of cabinets in your design as well as the presence of decorative details like moldings and decorative panels will also influence your price. You'll need a quote to get a better idea of how your kitchen will price out, but you can use My Dream Kitchen™ Pricing to understand how your door style, species and finish selections will influence your pricing.
Our Miseno cabinetry is custom built and finished to order according to your specifications. We have a factory, not a warehouse, and we can’t just pull your cabinets off of the shelf. Each and every cabinet is built specifically for you, and a quality process takes time. Before you submit your information, please be aware that the entire process – from the day you submit your design request to the day you get your cabinets will be at least two months.
Approximately 2-3 weeks after ordering, you should expect an e-mail from our service team containing your expected ship week and a cabinetry installation and care guide. Then, sometime during your cabinetry ship week, you will receive a phone call from a local delivery agent to schedule the home delivery date. Someone will need to be home to accept and sign for your cabinetry delivery.
Miseno cabinetry takes approximately 6-8 weeks to ship. Specialty items and specialty finishes, such as tempered glass or the villa finish, can extend your lead time to 8-10 weeks. Inset cabinetry ships in 10-12 weeks. Replacement parts and pieces take 2-3 weeks to produce and ship. Once your cabinetry ships, you can contact us and we will put you in touch with your local delivery agent once the cabinetry is delivered to them.
You should ensure that you have an area to securely store the cabinetry until you are ready to install. This area should be room temperature and relatively free of moisture. Since your new cabinetry is a fine woodworking product, it is susceptible to changes in temperature and humidity. Three days prior to installing your cabinets, please bring them into the space in which you intend to install them so that they may fully acclimate to the space before you install them.
Damaged, defective or missing pieces will be replaced at no charge within 3 weeks. Just call 855-402-8453 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include a picture, the cabinet nomenclature or location and a brief description of what's wrong and we'll begin production of an expedited replacement.
Miseno Cabinetry services the entire nation, including Alaska and Hawaii. However, we only ship our cabinetry within the contiguous continental United States. To ship to Alaska and Hawaii, Miseno Cabinetry will ship to a carrier location that you arrange (usually a dock), and you must arrange the final shipping from there. Usually, our designers will be able to assist you in finding a carrier, however, Miseno Cabinetry does not arrange to cover the cost of shipping from the carrier to Alaska or Hawaii. Miseno Cabinetry will also crate the cabinetry in plywood for an additional fee when shipping to Alaska and Hawaii.
We will consider this the most important factor in designing your cabinetry layout.
Our lead time will vary based on the frame construction and level of detail in your design, however the absolute soonest we can produce and ship cabinetry is approximately 6 weeks from the date of order.
Next, we're going to ask you a few simple questions about your architectural space.
We will confirm all of your appliances prior to finalizing your cabinetry purchase. This just allows our designers to get a head start on customizing for your space.
A floor plan with measurements is required for all cabinetry orders. If you don't have one at this time, you can still submit this Project Planner, but you will need to submit a floor plan by email as soon as possible to prevent delays in the design process.

* We still need you to provide us with a floor plan and photos of your space before we are able to design for you. Please send these to email@example.com when you are ready!
