See What Other are Saying

We couldn’t be more pleased with the design expertise and service that Sherry and the team and Distinctive Cabinetry provided in our renovation project. We used them for 4 different cabinet solutions (kitchen, entertainment center, and two bathrooms) and everything turned out better than we could have ever imagined. Not only did Sherry help us with all of the design / planning, her customer service throughout the process to ensure they were working in lock step with our contractor was outstanding. 5 SHINY STARS for Sherry and Distinctive Cabinetry!!
Kitchen, Entertainment Center & Bathroom Client
We recently used Distinctive Cabinetry for a kitchen remodel and I cannot recommend them highly enough! Sherry was a delight to work with and she truly delivered the kitchen of our dreams. The quality of the cabinets (Starmark) exceeded expectations, as did Sherry’s creative input. Both Sherry and Steve (the owner) were always pleasant and super-responsive to our many questions, concerns and requests. If you are considering any remodel that involves cabinetry, look no further.
Starmark Cabinetry Client
Had a great experience with Sherry at Distinctive Cabinetry. She was so helpful in answering all our questions, helping us think through a an updated design for our kitchen. She made the process easy, was responsive, had great ideas, and such a pleasure to work with through the entire process. I would highly recommend Distinctive Cabinetry and Sherry!
Kitchen Cabinet Update Client
I highly, highly recommend them! I worked with Sherry Redler on my kitchen project and she helped me from the beginning to very end. She is very patient, responsive and is an expert in this field. I went back and forth on so many things and she was so kind and informative during this entire process. Being honest, I feel she was even more helpful than my contractor was in providing quality control while the job was being done. In addition to this, anytime I emailed her, she got back to me quickly and she was incredibly helpful through this entire experience. I will add photos after final completion. You can’t go wrong here.
UltraCraft Cabinet Client
Distinctive Cabinetry’s Steve Ross and Sherry Redler provided knowledgeable professional service, with warm personal care during our entire kitchen remodeling project. Their recommendation of Starmark Cabinetry was exactly what we were looking for. Delivery was timely and one little adjustment was quickly addressed by Starmark. The beauty of our new Starmark Milan cabinets in natural Cherry ultimately made our kitchen the very best it could be. Sherry Redler worked up our design measurements and specs, considered all the little nuances and made important recommendations regarding fixtures and appliances; got everything, fit and finish, just right. They helped us find a full service contractor that handled all aspects of installation, from plumbing to electrical, to floors, walls, paint, and more.

My experience with Distinctive Cabinetry couldn’t have been more positive. Sherry helped us and I very highly recommend her. She expertly guided me through all the options and had some brilliant suggestions that none of the friends and designers had thought of (and they spent a lot more time looking at our plans). The quality is there, the price is right and everything they said would happen happened at the promised time and price. Also, Sherry recommended Doug for installation and he is awesome.

Sherry at Distinctive Cabinetry showed immense patience with us while we struggled to figure out exactly what we wanted. The whole project turned out absolutely beautiful. They were easy to work with, let us take home samples and made numerous changes as we kept changing our minds on a few things. After delivery and install, they were quick to address any issues and changes we had. Highly recommend them! Oh and the total price ended up lower than expected.

We had a wonderful experience with Distinctive Cabinetry! Professional, courteous, and absolutely gorgeous cabinetry! We had an entire house done and everything came out so beautiful. We worked with Craig for many months in the planning and design phase and he is awesome!! So patient and he has so many great design ideas that make the final product beautiful and functional. Love working with him. It was the personal connection and also the unique Cherrywood Mocha stain that Distinctive Cabinetry had that sealed the deal to go with them. Our cabinets are exactly how we imagined and wanted them. Distinctive Cabinetry really went the extra mile for us in terms of timelines and installation. Highly recommend them!!!
European Style Cabinets
Distinctive Cabinetry was highly recommended to us by a friend. We were very interested in Inset Cabinets offered by Starmark Cabinetry and even more thrilled to see actual cabinet samples in their Walnut Creek Showroom. We ultimately hired Steve and his team for our entire kitchen remodel. The results are incredible. His kitchen designers were professional, knowledgable, mindful of our budget & right on schedule. I’d definitely use them again!

We worked with Craig Lutz at Distinctive Cabinetry to design our kitchen remodel. Craig did an excellent job designing the new kitchen and assisting us with choice of wood and color for the kitchen. It was a complete kitchen rebuild, from floor to ceiling and everything in between (cabinetry, appliances, countertops, lighting, flooring, and removal of a 1-foot dropped ceiling). Craig made some suggestions that added to our own vision for the kitchen, and we really appreciated the work he did on it. We love the new kitchen. I also want to mention the outstanding work done by the contractor, Larry Tonti. Larry did a great job with the rebuilding and installation.

The deeper cabinets in the laundry area are working perfectly! Now the costco bottles fit with ease and the doors close, a major improvement. We are loving our new space and cooking is so much easier with the additional counter tops and the well laid out cabinets. The pull outs are a delight and it really makes every part of the cabinets easy to access!

Craig designed the cabinetry in my award winning, handicap friendly bathroom. We spent several hours going over ideas. He listened to me. He used his computer to visually diagram the design which was essential for me as it helped me see in three D exactly what the cabinets would look like. Craig was easy to talk with; he worked closely with Robineve Cole as they discussed the pros and cons of placement of the cabinets. I would not hesitate to recommend Craig. And, after two years of use, I am still in love with my bathroom cabinetry.
Starmark Cabinetry Client
I worked with Sherry Redler at Distinctive Cabinetry for the complete remodel of a 50 year old home. New custom cabinets in a large kitchen, two bathrooms, and laundry room. It was a pleasure working with Sherry, she had such good insights, and many great suggestions during the design phase. Distinctive was quick and efficient when dealing with mistakes made in the manufacturing phase. I would definitely work with them again.

We have worked with Distinctive Cabinetry on two separate occasions. The first time was for kitchen and bath cabinetry for our vacation home in the Sierras (new construction) and the second was for a master bath remodel for our home in Walnut Creek. Our experience with this company both times was great. The owner, Steve Ross has been a pleasure to work with. Shirley was delightful to work with planning a design for our vanity cabinet. When we hit a bump in the road, the matter was dealt with quickly and with professionalism. These folks want to make their customers happy. We recommend Distinctive Cabinetry highly and will not hesitate to use them again.
