who we are

A Team of Talented Craftsmen

We’re an experienced team with a passion for woodworking on a mission to produce the best custom cabinetry in the industry.

Our story

Engineered by Experts, Built by Craftsmen

Founded in 2001, Distinctive Cabinetry & Designs was built by hard work, sweat, and sawdust.

From our humble start in a garage with a single table saw to our top-of-the-line facility in Golden, Colorado, it’s our people who have made Distinctive Cabinetry & Designs what it is today.

Our Core Values


Solving creative challenges fuels our passion for custom cabinetry. Whether matching existing finishes or designing for unusual spaces, our expert drafters and skilled benchmen craft unique solutions that capture your vision.


True craftsmanship is concerned with not only how something is made, but why it’s made the way it is. We go above and beyond to ensure our clients receive not only the highest-quality product, but one that is engineered for both optimal functionality and design.


You can count on us to get the job done right, the first time. Our streamlined process ensures designs are precise and measurements are accurate, all while providing clear, consistent communication every step of the way.

"If you want a great cabinet shop that is local, look no further!"

I am a contractor in the golden area and found DC&D through another contractor in the area. He highly recommended them. I will not use another cabinet shop.

"The drawings were perfect and the quality of the cabinets was top notch."

This company is first class. We worked with DC&D to build custom cabinets for our kitchen remodel. We were so pleased with the quality and excellence we received. I highly recommend this company if you are in the market for excellent cabinets at a great price.
