For over 25 years, S&W Kitchens has designed and installed fine custom cabinetry.
Along with being proud members of the National Kitchen & Bath Association and the Central Florida Home Builders Association we have been strong supporters of the Master Custom Builders Council since inception. We offer a "one-stop" shopping facility featuring all of the latest cabinetry, counter-tops, and accessories available. As an extra, our Longwood showroom provides you with a look at the latest in appliances. Milcarsky's Appliance Center and S&W Kitchens share a unique relationship in helping you design your special room without having to shop around. We provide a wide selection of materials in various quality and price ranges. Our two showrooms contan life-size models of both traditional and contemporary cabinetry. We have built a strong relationship with home builders by holding one-on-one meetings with their clients and representatives. Depending on how far along construction is, S&W will make professional recommendations as to possible structural changes, such as plumbing and window placement. This approach helps to make your space as aesthetically pleasing and functional as possible.
Please stop by and look around or call and make an appointment with one of our design specialists.
Our one-piece doors, raised-panel designs are routed into melamine-backed MDF blanks, previously cut to size on one of the company's Selco panel saws from Biesse Group America. Our Bar-code labels provide the company's Biesse machining centers with the appropriate routing instructions programmed in a remote office.
The dimensioned parts are then moved into the company's "clean room" where they are sprayed with adhesive. After the glue dries, the blanks are loosely covered with the foil material. Finally, the parts, positioned on boards that are smaller all the way around to allow the foil to drape over all four edges, are shuttled into the company's Almex press. Heat reactivates the glue the addition of pressure helps bond the vinyl to the panel. After the pressing cycle is complete, the parts exit the machine, the bond is inspected and the excess foil is trimmed by hand.
Our doors and drawer fronts with veneered raised panels are built and finished a couple of miles away in the company's original production facility. At this facility, particleboard panel parts are shaped and then veneered on both sides in an Almex press. The profiled centerpieces are inserted into frames made of solid wood stiles and rails, and assembled using either mitered or mortise-and-tenon construction. The completed doors and fronts are then sanded, stained, sealed, re-sanded and top coated with catalyzed conversion varnish. The finishing operation features four spray booths and a drying oven.
Our top of the line cabinets feature doors and drawer fronts with solid wood panels that we produce right here at Designer's Choice, but we also obtain some of our doors and drawer fronts from Imperial Woodcraft. All of the solid wood and veneer species and finishes have matching melamine counterparts, used to finish the exposed sides of the melamine casework, as well as matching PVC edgebanding. Plywood is available as an optional construction material; it too, is laminated. The plywood comes from Inland Plywood, which also supplies all of the cut-to-size veneers used for door and drawer panels.
