About Our Cabinet Designers

Michael Phillips

Have you ever noticed that people do better work when their work is their passion? That is me. I create cabinet designs for your home or office and I very much enjoy designing. Designing spaces for you!

My father started me in his cabinet business during the summer of 1963 in Savannah, Georgia. I have watched the kitchen and bath industry change from mom and pop shops to a mature business of highly skilled professionals.

Kitchen design now requires more than just placing wooden boxes on a wall. It requires skill, finesse, and knowledge of how a kitchen or other spaces should function. Let’s not forget that they have to look good as well!

I have been a cabinetmaker, a kitchen designer, a sales representative for two major cabinet manufacturers, a business owner, a showroom manager, and student of the business.

This has given me vast knowledge about the processes involved in building custom and semi-custom cabinets. I have dedicated myself to properly applying design principles to every room I design. I know what makes a cabinet quality, what designs are functional, and what people expect from their rooms.

My cabinetry is as far north as Laconia, New Hampshire, as far south as Key West Florida and as far west as St. Louis, Missouri. I even have my designs in southeast Idaho.

I am happy to now be in Asheville and proud be a part of an outstanding firm such as Asheville Custom Cabinetry and Woodworking.

Please come by today to experience the difference! Experience Asheville Custom Cabinetry!
