Custom Cupboards Our History Fine Quality Kitchen Cabinets Bathroom Cabinets Office Cabinets

Exceptional Service. Distinctive Style. Impeccable Craftsmanship.

When Wichita brothers Dan and Ron Henry founded Custom Cupboards in 1981, they had no idea it would grow as rapidly as it did. Their business plan was simple: build quality cabinets, and people are going to want to buy them. They didn’t even quit their day jobs at first, but worked in the evenings to fill the orders that started trickling in from local builders. Word spread quickly though, and soon they had enough business to keep them busy as full-time cabinetmakers.


The company outgrew the original 3000-square-foot building after two short years, and outgrew its second building a few years after that. In early 1994, Custom Cupboards built its present location at 3738 S. Norman, with over 200,000 square feet and adjacent land for future planned expansions. There were now 104 employees working multiple shifts, and annual sales had grown to more than $5 million. Custom Cupboards was even ranked in Inc. Magazine as one of the fastest-growing companies in the United States.

Today, Custom Cupboards employs over 190 skilled workers. We provide cabinets to a national network of over 200 business partners in 36 states. This means that finding a distinctive style for your kitchen, bath, office, or home has never been easier. Custom Cupboards offers you over half a million possibilities, with 9 wood choices, 100 door styles, and 400 colors to choose from. Our website makes it easy to find the wood, door, and color that best expresses your style. Once you have found it, simply print it off and take it in to your nearest retail location. They will help to turn your design into reality.

We make a lot more cabinets now than we did in 1981, but our business plan hasn’t changed much: we still build quality cabinets, and people still want to buy them. Let Custom Cupboards build your next set of cabinetry and discover exceptional service, distinctive style, and impeccable craftsmanship.
