Kitchen Cabinets Mackay
Custom cabinetry for new kitchens & renovations in mackay
As we all know, kitchens are more than just a place to prepare your meals. Over the years they have become the hub of the home where families congregate and spend time making memories.
At Mackay Cabinetmaking Service, we are kitchen specialists who can handle the whole process for you. We’ll work with you on designs for both new builds and renovations.
If you’re renovating or building a new kitchen, it’s important to remember that they also act as a selling point for many homes. So, choosing the right cabinetry is paramount for any project. The look, design and functionality of your cabinets must appeal to the potential homeowner, which is where we come in.
To create the best kitchen for you, our team will begin the process by sitting down and going through all aspects of your design.
In every design we create, we do our best to incorporate the triangle rule, where the stove, sink and refrigerator are all in proximity. This rule ensures the kitchens we create are highly functional.
No matter your style preferences, we’re confident we can offer a service that will suit your needs and budget. We believe that a good design is never affected by the budget. We also want you to remember that while style and trends will change, functionality will remain timeless.
We have a range of finishes to choose from including 2-pac polyurethane, laminate and granite. Read more about our finishes here.
For accurate quoting on kitchen designs we advise to know the appliance dimensions beforehand, so we can work to exact requirements.

Frequently Asked Questions
Typically, a custom kitchen project can take anywhere from a few weeks to several months. However, the duration can vary significantly based on the project’s complexity, scope and the efficiency of the builders.
If the kitchen is part of a larger home renovation, coordination with other ongoing projects could potentially extend the timeline. Also, unexpected issues such as shipping delays or unforeseen structural problems can add time to the project. Therefore, it’s important to plan for flexibility in your schedule.
Choosing a kitchen cabinet finish involves considering both aesthetic preferences and practical considerations. Here are factors to consider:
- Aesthetics: The finish you select will significantly impact the look and feel of your kitchen. Consider the style you’re aiming for—modern, rustic, traditional or something else—and select a finish that complements it.
- Durability: Kitchens are high-traffic areas subject to spills, splatters and touch. Therefore, choosing a finish that is easy to clean and can withstand wear and tear over time is important.
- Colour: The colour of your cabinets can influence the mood of your kitchen. Lighter finishes can make a space feel larger and brighter, while darker tones can add warmth and richness.
- Maintenance: Certain finishes require more maintenance than others. For instance, painted finishes may need to be retouched over time, while stained finishes can be more durable but may require a sealant.
- Cost: It’s important to consider your budget when making your choice.
Absolutely. At Mackay Cabinetmaking Service, our goal is to create a kitchen that works for you. During the design phase, we’ll discuss your specific storage needs to build cabinetry that accommodates your unique storage needs. If you have additional appliances or specific items that require specialised storage, those can be accommodated as well.
The kitchen layout largely depends on the space available, your lifestyle and personal preferences. When determining your kitchen layout, consider the following:
- The work triangle: Consider the optimal distance between your sink, stove and refrigerator for efficiency and ease of movement.
- The available space and shape of your kitchen: This might limit or dictate what layouts are possible.
- Your lifestyle and cooking habits: If you often cook large meals, a spacious kitchen and a central island may be ideal.
- Storage needs: Evaluate what you need to store, from small utensils to large appliances, to ensure your kitchen design includes enough cabinetry and storage spaces.
- Traffic flow: Consider the pattern of movement within your kitchen to avoid unnecessary obstructions and create a seamless cooking and dining experience.
The lifespan of kitchen cabinets can vary based on their construction, material and how well they’re maintained. However, well-built cabinets can often last 30 to 50 years. Common reasons for replacing cabinets before this may include aesthetic updates, functionality improvements or major kitchen remodelling. Regular maintenance, like cleaning and minor repairs, can help extend the life of your cabinets.
