Our Process

Working with Smith & Vallee Cabinet Makers is simple, creative and efficient from design through installation.

Our Process

We help you achieve the environment you want and bring your vision to life. If you have a completed design, click here to request a quote on your project and we will quickly provide a complimentary estimate. If you don’t have a design, schedule an appointment at our design studio in Edison, WA to conceptualize your ideas. From design through installation, our designers listen to your ideas and offer advice to help you achieve the environment you want.

Once we have created a basic design and established the scope of your project, we will provide you with a quote. Upon project approval, we visit your site, make measurements and continue the design process. We then build your project at our shop in Edison and deliver it to your home. Installation can be completed by us or by the contractor of your choice. Projects from start to finish can be completed within four to six weeks.

Smith & Vallee’s expert craftsmen build every project from scratch and install each piece with expert care. We pay attention to the little details along the way to ensure a final product that we can look upon with pride. The whole process is collaborative and easy.
