Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Why custom cabinets?

Whether you are looking for the perfect addition to your dream home, or you want to uniquely compliment your hotel or condo development, the best way to make your project stand out is by customizing it. Each project is different and, therefore, has different needs. Let us help you build the perfect custom cabinets for your project.

What kinds of cabinets does Ernest Rust offer?

Since all of our classic, transitional, contemporary, and modern cabinets are made custom, our products can be implemented into any kind of living space. We are very experienced in producing custom kitchen cabinets, custom bathroom cabinets, custom office cabinets, custom closet cabinets, and custom modern cabinets for various other living spaces.

Does Ernest Rust provide design services?

Yes! Our process for delivering you your custom modern cabinets all starts with the design and material selection process, after which we provide you with a quote for the project.

How do I place an order?

Due to the personalized nature of our product selection, we must first begin with the design process, which includes material selection. After the design process, we will give you a quote for the project’s cost, after which an order for your custom modern cabinets can be placed.

What areas of the world does Ernest Rust service?

Our custom modern cabinets can be shipped and installed anywhere your heart can imagine. We can service even the most remote of locations: from the snowy mountaintops of Colorado, Utah, Wyoming, and Montana to the beautiful beaches of the Caribbean, Florida, California, and Hawaii, we’ve got you covered. If you are worried that we may not be able to reach your project, please Contact Us, as we have surprised many of our clients before with our remarkable flexibility and reach.

Where can I find examples of completed projects?

Our Gallery has a large collection of photos that beautifully display our custom classic and modern cabinets.

Can Ernest Rust complete large scale custom orders?

Yes! Ernest Rust’s special European manufacturing center is uniquely positioned to produce custom cabinetry in large quantities at a consistently high level of quality. This rare capacity to manufacture top-of-the-line custom cabinets is exactly why hotel and condo developers routinely work with Ernest Rust for their custom cabinetry needs. 

What materials can I choose from?

Here at Ernest Rust, we only use the finest of materials for our custom modern cabinets. Our countertops can be made with wood, veneer, laminate, steel, or glass, while our cabinets can be made with acrylic, varnish, veneer, multi-layer board, quartz sinter, leather, concrete, glass, and steel. If you decide that you would like to construct your custom cabinets with materials different from those previously listed, we are more than capable of fulfilling that request. We encourage you to visit the Materials page on our site for more in depth information on all the unique ways we can customize your modern cabinets.

How does installation work?

Ernest Rust offers three options in regards to installation. The first option is self installation, where your own team completes the installation. The second option is sending an Ernest Rust installation consultant down to the project site to guide your team through the process of installing the custom cabinets, ensuring a smooth, seamless installation process. Lastly, the third option is sending an entire Ernest Rust team of installation specialists to fully take over the installation process, taking all the work and worry off of your hands.

What architectural styles are best suited for Ernest Rust products?

Modern, contemporary and transitional architectural styles are best suited for our product line. We also have several classic architectural styles to complement more traditional residences and projects.

What is the lead time on Ernest Rust custom cabinetry?

Lead time varies for each project! Each project is completely customized to each customer’s preferences and requests. The scope of every project is quite different as well. We can give a very general lead time estimate of twelve weeks, but this can vary greatly. We recommend reviewing our entire website and getting a feel of our custom products.
