Our Story

From sweeping floors as a teenager to sweeping clients off their feet after seeing their custom cabinets, Rick Kalem has taken designing cabinets to another level.

Rick’s uncle, Rex, emigrated from Greece and worked alongside his relative, Steve, at a small cabinet shop in 1960.  While working there he was often ridiculed for being an immigrant.  Rather than let it get the best of him Rex worked even harder and learned the trade and became the best.  He was a natural at the art of fine cabinetry.  Soon Rex’s hard work and craftsmanship paid off and he took Rex Custom Cabinets under his leadership.

Rick Kalem brings more than 50 years of design and cabinetry experience to assure each client receives superior quality and the best value.  Rick has strong listening and problem solving skills that enable him to establish trust and build lasting relationships. This compliments his highly regarded professional skills.  As a result he provides exceptional cabinetry design service. Rex’s Cabinets offers many techniques to complete any cabinetry project, big or small.  Worn cabinets to be renovated, a kitchen to be remodeled or even a bathroom that needs to be updated we can help you complete your project on time and within budget.

Our professional and courteous staff can help you choose a look and design that will improve the value and beauty of your home.  We also will work from plans and specifications provided by you, the client.  Our knowledgeable staff and state of the art tools and equipment allow us to take on each project with confidence.  We have built our reputation on our commitment to provide personal service and quality results.
