More often than not people wonder what is the difference between a cabinetmaker and a carpenter.
A cabinet maker has a much more intricate type of work. They have attention to detail while working with finer materials and intricate constructions.
Carpenters deal with wood for large structural projects. House frames and decking.
Our team commits to quality, accuracy and efficiency. We are responsible for creating bespoke furniture from scratch.
Assembling and installing furniture is part of our service. Our staff have decades of experience before they begin working with us.
Our team handles ordering materials, design and customer care to build your dream furniture. We will help you bring your ideas to life and meet your personal requirements quickly with ease.

We are extremely happy with the service provided from start to finish. Derek, Alan, Vanessa and Declan were very thorough and accomodating with all our requirements and provided an extremely professional service. It was a delight to work with Vanessa. She is an extremely good designed and very accomodating. We have plans to get a few more things done and I will definitely be going back to Custom Made in the near future.
I am delighted with the service provided by Custom Made. They designed and made two built-in wardrobes and an alcove unit for me. In each case I was delighted with the difference made to the rooms: they feel brighter and more spacious now. The process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble and the standard of craftsmanship and service was excellent. I would highly recommend them.
Custom made previously provided stunning alcove cabinets for our new home. This year we gave them the difficult job of exactly replicating those units after we had extensive flood damage to our home. Vanessa and the team did an amazing job and now our sitting room feels just like home again. It was a pleasure to deal with custom made throughout the whole process from design to installation. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautifully finished custom carpentry.
We cannot recommend Custom Made enough! From the moment I first spoke with Vanessa their attention to detail was incredible. Derek dropped in to discuss our requirements and measured up, then we received emailed drawings of our units for our approval. Eoin, their cabinet installer, was an absolute gentleman, very polite and professional. We are delighted with our finished cabinets!
We are thrilled with the quality of work and customer service we received from Custom Made. They designed and built a big kitchen unit and a desk that fit our needs perfectly. We asked for the unit to match the colour and design of our kitchen and they did it to perfection. The installation team were neat and efficient, and were happy to make any changes we requested. We cannot recommend Custom Made highly enough.
I found the team very professional and helpful throughout. In particular, Vanessa was fantastic to deal with — and the main reason we went with Custom Made in the first place. The end product (built in shelving units and floating shelves) was spot on. Couldn't be happier and would highly recommend.
Delighted that we selected Custom Made to work on our new furniture. Thanks to their invaluable help at the design stage (thank you so much Vanessa!) we can enjoy our bespoke furniture which we absolutely love. It has been a great experience from the design stage to installation; they are very professional, the quality of work is second to none and they are such a pleasure to deal with. We have a few more rooms to fill and will definitely use Custom Made's services again.
Custom Made are a very professional outfit! They made and installed a walk in wardrobe with revolving floor to ceiling shoe racks for us as per our design and we absolutely LOVE IT. Many many thanks to Vanessa (best of luck in your new home!), she was extremely helpful and patient, always in good humour while dealing with us, such a lovely person to deal with. Thank you!
Simply brilliant to work with. We went with Custom Made because of their strong reviews — So glad we did! Vanessa designed the pieces and worked with me to adjust the designs until they were perfect, being super-responsive and patient all the way through. She kept us up to date about installation dates, and the team arrived on the date promised. The result is delightful - we're so happy with the two units! Highly recommend them!
We installed alcove units with floating shelves in our living room and were delighted with the finished product. Our house is old so it wasn't a straight forward job but the team did an outstanding job fitting the units to such a high standard on the day. Vanessa is fantastic to work with. She was prompt with answers to any questions we had and was happy to help with every step of the process. I would happily use Custom Made again for work in our house.
We had wardrobes built by Custom Made recently and couldn't be happier with them. We had some ideas but Vanessa's suggestions were invaluable, they were also flexible about what we wanted to do unlike some other companies we had approached. The team were great and we are delighted with the finished product. Highly recommend!
Furniture That You Should Get Made to Order
- Bespoke Alcove Units
Filling your alcoves with bespoke units is a quick way to add more storage and refresh the feel of your room. You can design your alcove units with different feature like floating shelves, open shelving and cabinets. Our woodworker team offers finishing your units with a colour of your choice. Our carpenters will fit them into your home. Check our our Alcove Units projects for ideas and inspiration.
- Custom Cabinet Maker
By adapting your ideas in making perfect kitchen cabinets in our cabinet making workshop we can help you open up your visual space, increase functionality and make sure all your kitchen appliances are neatly organised. Most people don't go down the path of getting custom made dining tables, since there is a huge variety of dining tables ready for immediate purchase, but other pieces of furniture in your kitchen make most sense to be made to order. We offer units with glass doors both frosted and clear, open shelving and cabinets that extend all the way up to the ceiling.
- Made to Order Cabinets
Bathroom cupboards of various styles, whether they are floating cabinets or freestanding we will help make your bathroom look unique. Our designer will help you compile your ideas into a your own custom design that will be aesthetically pleasing and functional making the most of your available space.
- Wall Paneling
Wall paneling needs to be built by a cabinet maker and fitted by a carpenter. A good worker could do both. The reason why wall paneling is something that you should get custom made is that off-the-shelf wall panels never fit perfectly.This is especially true in old houses where the walls are not perfectly straight. You can see some of our wall paneling styles and get yours custom made and fitted by us.
Get Inspired by Different Cabinetry Styles
To get inspired by different custom made styles we recommend to search for lots of examples.
Using Pinterest boards can help to determine the style of furniture you prefer. Pinning everything you like can show you and our designers what you like.
Pinterest boards our team recommend you to check out:
- Kitchen Cabinets by Brandi Hardy
- Bathroom Cabinets by Daniel Henry
- Alcove Units by Katya Koliban
- Built in Wardrobes by Gayle Laverty
- Find your own inspiration on Pinterest
This approach will aid us to meet your expectations when designing the sketches. There are no rules when it comes to style. Mixing styles is more common than it has ever been before.
For example contemporary and traditional styles work well together. Our designers will give you guide you through stylistic features and combinations.
This approach may draw your attention to elements you weren't able to see before and ignite ideas. For example you can design a kitchen with hardware free. Cut out handles will add a personal touch creating a clean and authentic look.
Another example would be choosing a type of finish for furniture. Kitchen cabinets that have a high gloss finish will look modern.
High gloss will reflect the light making the space look bigger.
Pre-made furniture will always have an option of different designs and finishes. The price range will allow you to choose the most suitable option based on the quality of material.
Custom made furniture for the large part of it is handmade. A CNC router which is a cutting machine will produce some pieces of furniture. Bespoke furniture will cater to specific needs, utilising the entire available space.
For the most part custom made furniture is handmade to accommodate specific needs. It will suit spaces like kitchens with unusual and both limited and unlimited space.
Custom made furniture is designed to distribute weigh evenly throughout the cabinets.
Cabinet Maker Dublin
A skilled woodworker will use sturdy joinery which will prolong the life of the units.

There are a few general milestones involved in creating a bespoke piece of furniture:
- Designing the furniture
- Selection of materials
- Cutting the parts
- Assembling parts
- Finishing the furniture

There are endless possibilities of creating a one of a kind bespoke furniture. Trends that are past, emerging or still existing may influence our choice.
Our suggestion is to keep close to what feels right for you.
Before diving into talking about different styles always keep in mind these questions:
1. Is it practical?
2. Is it timeless?
3. Is it beautiful?

The Specialists in Cabinetry
You’ll be interested in custom made furniture if you want something unique. A custom made piece of furniture will last you a lifetime. There are two main reasons you might choose custom made furniture above all else.
- CUSTOM DESIGN MADE FOR YOU
By creating a unique design you can choose the desired shapes for storage and displays. You can hand pick the knobs, trimmings and create your own carvings. Cabinet doors, bedroom furniture or bunk beds. All of it can be designed anyway you want. The only way to create unique designs is by taking a custom approach. For example you can either choose pre-made radiator covers or create a custom frontal design assembled by an experienced cabinetmaker.
- EXPERTLY DONE FITTINGS
Custom made furniture is made to fit any available space flawlessly. Having unusual dimensions or fitting a piece of furniture into a room maximising it’s use is one of the reasons why people order furniture made to measure. We also provide finishing options like adding lights or applying the shade of colour you’re after. Having your space customised to suit your tastes and functionality is life changing.
