A cabinet makers role in a shopfitting project

When you hear the word ‘cabinet maker’, you immediately assume it’s someone that makes kitchens and bathrooms, but believe it or not, a cabinet maker is so much more, especially in the field of shopfitting and fitouts. Their job includes a wide range of activities, and when their work is done, the results are impressive.

In this article, I will give you a little bit of an incite as to what our team of cabinet makers do for us on our shopfitting and fitout projects and I will explain their capabilities.

The projects a shopfitting company undertake are varied and can be either defined as shopfitting; which is generally reserved more so for retail shops, supermarkets and pharmacies etc., and fitouts; which is generally used to define projects such as hotels, bars, restaurants, cafes, offices, and even residential projects. Regardless of whether it is a shopfitting project, or a fitout, cabinet makers are essential.

Creating an ideal business environment is important. It should reflect the business and the brand, and it should make a strong impression on your clients. This isn’t an easy task, especially if there are dimensional limitations. No matter how complicated a task may seem, cabinet makers always have the right solution, and they are a vital part of the team.

Here at Xtreme Shopfitting and Joinery, our cabinet makers turn our customers’ wishes into reality. They can create a wide range of furniture pieces, display cabinets, storage, fitting rooms, and more, which is why they have a very important role in every shopfitting project. They combine their creativity with their knowledge and practical skills. They pay attention to every detail, no matter how small it is. Their work includes many different activities, from drawing, cutting and shaping materials, to fixing the parts, and finishing the piece with lacquer or polish, depending on the piece. Often, they need to find a solution for small spaces, and create functional pieces.

When it comes to retail shops, cabinet makers are required to make the checkout counter and fitting rooms. The checkout counter is the point where your team members will interact with your customers, which means it is the central point of the shop. When it’s appealing, it is the key for an impulsive purchase. Fitting rooms should be spacious, and clients should feel comfortable. As you may notice, cabinet makers work on the store’s essentials. For supermarkets it may be the cash register aisles and even some shelving. For pharmacies it would also be the cash register, but also the chemist/prescription area generally located at the back or the pharmacy. If you think about it for a second, a pharmacy wouldn’t be much if it didn’t have these areas.

Cabinet makers create reception desks for hotels. For bars, it may be the restroom cabinets and the bar. For restaurants and cafes, it would be the restaurant kitchen and pass-over, and restrooms. When it comes to offices, cabinet makers create all the workstations, cubicles, boardroom, restrooms, reception areas and more. They also work on the residential projects, such as kitchens, bathrooms, custom entertainment cabinets.

Cabinetry is what makes certain areas warm, appealing and special. With custom cabinetry solutions, you will add a personal touch to any space you want.
