MCM Cabinet Makers
MCM Cabinet Makers combines old-fashioned attention to detail with up-to-the-minute
design techniques to deliver beautiful, functional kitchens.
By working closely with clients, MCM
Cabinet Makers is able to make them feel
part of the project and ensure they get
exactly what they're after. It's an approach that
has worked well for Geoff Armstrong since he
established MCM Cabinet Makers in 1992.
Originally trained in antique reproduction, Geoff
learnt his techniques the old-fashioned way. As a
result, clients can expect a quality of craftsmanship
that is hard to come across in today's marketplace.
RED AND WHITE KITCHEN, DIANELLA
e owner favoured a minimalist style of kitchen
and asked that it be modern and spacious with lots
of storage. He was also keen to avoid the closed-in
feeling that floor-to-ceiling cabinets can create.
Geoff Armstrong of MCM Cabinet Makers
designed the kitchen in conjunction with the
owner, and took care of its construction. is
entailed knocking out a bricked-in pantry and
wall oven and repairing the ceiling.
While the cabinets are built to the ceiling on
one side, Geoff purposely left a gap above the
cabinets on the other side to make the space
appear bigger than it really is.
A white colour scheme was chosen to create a
minimalist, yet spacious, feel, while the owner's
adventurous side is evident in a red splashback.
e owner was eager to display glasses and
knick-knacks, so Geoff interspersed the ultra-
gloss Createc cabinets with glass-front doors.
e hardware is by renowned Austrian brand
Blum and the silver handles tie in the cupboards
with the blinds, appliances and power points.
An appliance cupboard with a roller shutter
door was built for the microwave, and while the
owner doesn't have a dishwasher, a removable
cabinet was constructed under the sink should he
wish to install one in the future.
