Very good experience. Quality cabinets and very affordable. Many options available, which we couldn’t find at other places. Paige was wonderful to work with. My family’s dream kitchen was built thanks to her and her team.Highly recommended!
My husband and I were planning to remodel our master bathroom and needed cabinets and countertops. I found SCW while searching for a local business that sells Waypoint cabinets. I can’t say enough nice things about Paige. She is friendly and very focused on good customer service. She patiently answered my questions, but never tried to pressure me or “up sell” me. She shared her product knowledge with me, but respectfully deferred to my personal design choices. Would absolutely use Paige again! Call her. You will be glad you did!
I was in contact with the owner Paige. She was extremely helpful with the design and very informative when it came to the different cabinet makes. I will be getting all my future projects from here regardless of the distance

I spoke with several cabinet companies about my kitchen remodeling project and Stone Cabinet Works was by far the most helpful, affordable and best quality for the price. Owners Paige and Alan, and designer Tracy attended to every detail and answered every question I had throughout the project. In addition to being a pleasure to work with, they saved me a significant amount of time and money by also providing referrals for countertop installation, backsplash tile and hardware. Everyone raves about my beautiful new kitchen, especially me!
Great place for your new kitchen / cabinets. Very good selection of designs, colors and styles. Prices are very competitive. Owners and staff are very friendly, smiley and helpful. Recommend it!!
Paige Han was very accommodating and helpful with her suggestions. She made a promise to have the cabinets I ordered delivered on a certain date and because I was traveling the previous week and would be again the following week it was very important that they arrive on time. This was due to the installer for the cabinets, then the countertop installer, and finally the plumber all being lined up in a timely way. Anyway, the work is complete, the kitchen looks 10 times better than before, and I appreciate working with Paige and would most certainly recommend SCW to anyone
