Brian Yahn on Custom Cabinets for Your Kitchen, Bathroom, or Any Room in Your Home
Today, an interview with Brian Yahn. Brian's the guy you want advising you on custom cabinets for your home. As Sales Manager at Plain & Fancy Custom Cabinetry, he focuses on research & development and marketing.
Over his almost thirty years with the company - in order engineering, customer service, and office management - Brian has learned more than a little about custom cabinetry.
"When considering your new kitchen remodel, you need to literally think outside the “box”. How you like to cook and what you need to store should drive your cabinet choices and design."

Brian's #1 Truth
"When considering your new kitchen remodel, you need to literally think outside the “box”. How you like to cook and what you need to store should drive your cabinet choices and design.
Using custom cabinetry allows you to create the “boxes” you need to meet your specific desires. Do you have a favorite Le Creuset Dutch oven or saucepan, a favorite utensil or perhaps your go-to small appliance? With custom cabinetry you can create the perfect home for all of your favorite things!"
Brian's #2 Truth
"As you begin discussions with your builder/remodeler, you will undoubtedly have many, many questions. If cabinetry is required for your project you may be presented with many options.
Ask your construction manager if they work with any designers or custom cabinet manufacturers. A true custom cabinet manufacturer can provide cabinetry (and panels, moldings, etc.) for any room of your home. Whether it’s a wet bar, mudroom, hutch, laundry room, whatever, a custom cabinet manufacturer can give you all the options you need for any room of your home."
Why Brian does what he does
"It is a thrill to take peoples dreams, desires, and designs and turn them into reality. To see people's faces when they proudly show you their home and that “thing” they have always wanted, well, that’s a great feeling!"
