Custom Kitchen & FAQs
How do I start to design my one-of-a-kind , custom-designed , Inde-Art kitchen ?
First Step! You can use IKEA's free planning tool to build your lay out and forward it to us. If not just send us a sketch of the room with dimensions. Mark where windows, doors , bulkhead may be. Or any other detail which may be important. You can set up a free consultation to go over your lay-out and discuss cabinet design over the phone or in person. You can either choose cabinets in-stock or we can custom design & built as per your lay-out. Browse our kitchen & island gallery page for inspiration.
We also offer in-house and home design services ( within GTA) from furniture layout to kitchen & bathroom design. Please contact us for rates and services to meet your needs.
Do you build doors or complete cabinets ?
Both. We can build complete cabinets. However you can also buy doors and use your local cabinet maker to built boxes & drawers ( which will bring shipping cost down considerably ) or use IKEA boxes & drawers.
If I just need a facelift?
We can customize our doors to fit your existing boxes & drawers (including IKEA boxes & drawers). So if your layout works well, use our one-of-a-kind solid wood doors & drawer panels to truly redefine your existing cabinets.
Do you offer installation service for cabinets or cabinet doors?
Yes we do, within Greater Toronto Area.
Do you also do general contracting? like plumbing , dry walls, electrical , floor & back splash?.
No we do not. We recommend that you hire a local contractor or we can recommend a contractor in our area.
Do you sell counter tops?

If I live outside Greater Toronto Area how much will the shipping charges be?
Charges depends on your location and the size & number of pieces you purchase. We can provide you with a shipping quote. Usually to ship just the door, charges are nominal.
What if something shipped arrives damaged?
The only thing more important than getting your order right is making sure it arrives in mint condition. To that end, we take great care in packing everything and stand behind our shipping agents. We ask that all customers check their delivery upon arrival and notify us of any problems within 3 business days. Documenting damage is vital, so please take photos and save all packing material. Please note: all damage claims are void if not made to us within 3 business days of delivery.
Should I use cabinets or doors in stock?
We can go over with you to see if the in-stock cabinets will be a good fit or not. We can also incorporate in-stock pieces of furniture into the design rendering a one of kind kitchen.

If the stock cabinets do not fit my layout or style, can you custom build as per my layout?
If the stock inventory is not a good fit we can custom build cabinets or doors, either carved or plain, with your choice of stain or finish. Styles ranging from from old world to contemporary to rustic. Any pattern or finish seen on our website can be reproduced.

Do I have to buy complete kitchen from you?
No. You can choose to do an accent wall or mix & match base or wall cabinet with more generic cabinets. You can elevate your kitchen with a Inde-Art island which may complement the cabinetry.
