Local designers win big at B.C. Awards

Island cabinetmaker crafts spectacular solutions for all your storage needs

Competing against the best in BC, Parksville’s Mid Island Cabinets has earned the distinction of creating one of the best kitchens in the province last year!

The custom cabinet company’s Vanessa Wagemaker teamed up with Heidi Schumann of Design Details Inc. to create National Kitchen and Bath Association B.C.’s Best Large Contemporary Kitchen – a stunning walnut and white gloss space in a contemporary home on Fairwinds golf course.

Highlighting the breadth of Mid Island’s services, the team crafted both custom cabinets and walnut ceiling panels to anchor the space and integrate creative lighting features.

“We’re a full beginning-to-end process,” says Karen Petraschuk, Sales Manager at Mid Island Cabinets. In addition to the kitchen, Mid Island built three vanities, two bar areas, cabinets and countertop for the laundry room, and cabinetry for the home office, pantry, and mudroom.

With everything handled in-house, from your first design consultation through manufacturing and installation, you can rest assured your vision will be completed with care.

In this most recent award-winning kitchen, the design incorporated the home’s spectacular west coast views, balanced bright natural light and rich earth tones, and pulled in practical solutions to make the space both functional user-friendly. The kitchen’s three faucets certainly make the space more efficient, with a stylish pot filler over the range that makes spaghetti night a cinch.

Hands-on collaboration in-house

Reach out to Mid Island Cabinets today to turn your dreams into reality.

“We encourage customers to be involved, and work with them to help refine their ideas,” Petraschuk says.

Where other companies might fire off an email with 3-D computer sketches, Mid Island Cabinets sits down with clients to ensure they understand what’s going to be installed.

“We take the time to really hear what our customers are saying.”

And the attention to detail doesn’t stop there. With a Parksville custom shop that handles everything from boxes and drawers to paints, stains and mill-work, you’re sure to notice the hands-on, collaborative approach and custom touches.

Whether you’re a first-time homeowner who doesn’t know a laminate from an oak tree or a seasoned builder with specific ideas of chocolate-plum stains, Mid Island Cabinets will sculpt your ideas from rough sketches to award-winning style. Want help visualizing materials, costs and processes? Already have a solid plan of attack? Mid Island Cabinets is happy to work with you no matter your skill level.

So what’s it going to be? Re-imagine your walk-in closet? Simplify the storage in your laundry room? Fully outfit a photo-worthy wine cellar? Custom cabinets are more affordable than you think, and are built to last. Reach out to Mid Island Cabinets at 250-954-1789 in Parksville and 250-585-2118 in Nanaimo or visit for more details.
