Best of New York 2015

Best Custom Cabinetmaker

  • MPD Design Build


    These three Pratt grads can install a kitchen’s worth of custom cabinets (from barn style to flip-up doors) in about six weeks using wood sourced from Long Island and the Bronx. The trio is used to dealing with picky architects and has installed rolling ladders to accommodate high ceilings. And while their fully custom cabinet jobs cost about $30,000 (the industry average), the “pimp my Ikea” option is more reasonable: MPD will source the hidden interior framing from Ikea and add custom doors and veneer for $18,000.
