Find Inspiration For New Cabinetry With These Four Apps

We may not think about it often, but cabinets are one of the most important accessories of any home.

For many homes, cabinets end up being one of the largest single costs of any piece of furniture or accessory and are a valuable place where everyday items and supplies can be stored without the need for additional square footage.

A variety of mobile applications now exist to help individuals with just about every aspect of life, so it comes as no surprise that there are several applications that help showcase and illustrate cabinets and their importance in the home. Below, we will discuss four of these apps and how each can help you find inspiration for a new set of cabinets.


Centered around the CabinetMaker+FDM magazine, this application â?? which can be found on the iTunes App Store for free â?? provides its users with all of the news, stories, interactive features and products that are featured in the magazine on a monthly basis. Utilized by many in the cabinetmaking industry, the CabinetMaker+FDM app can be a valuable resource for those who wish to further understand the elements of cabinetmaking. Not only can you view the current edition of the magazine, but you will also be able to view past issues to find the information you need.

Cabinet Maker Professional

Those who have basic carpentry skills may wish to build cabinets for a shed or other area of the home, and the Cabinet Maker Professional app is a great way to get started. Any type of wall-mounted cabinet can be constructed via the application, with options for cabinet dimensions and the list of materials needed to complete the job. Users will be able to quickly discern just what is needed and can then calculate costs for any cabinet project.

Cabinet Maker

The last app on this list is just as helpful â?? and in many of the same ways â?? as the others previously mentioned.
