Project: Target Field ~ Bat & Barrel // Minneapolis, MN // Architect: Populous // General Contractor: Mortenson Construction


I have personally worked with Distinctive Cabinet Design on several Casino/Hotel projects over the past 7 years. The projects have ranged in various sizes. The two largest projects have been Omak Resort & Casino in Omak, Washington and Shoshone Casino in Lander, Wyoming. Both projects were extremely high-end millwork packages with a combination of wood, laminate, stone, acrylic and metals. The millwork provided by Distinctive Cabinet Design was of impeccable quality and the casinos were stunning when complete.

It is my pleasure to recommend Distinctive Cabinet Design. I have worked with Distinctive Cabinet Design for the past four years, during which time they have grown to be a preferred casework vendor with our company.

Mission Construction and Distinctive Cabinet Design have done multiple projects over the last four years of all shapes and sizes. Ranging from large office renovations, breakroom and kitchen remodels, specialty fixtures and trim work. They have become one of our preferred vendors by delivering top notch quality products, competitive pricing, prompt client service responses and outstanding problem solvers.

Distinctive has a complete team of Managers, Estimators, Project Managers/Assistants and Carpenters that are extremely skilled and responsive.

Working with Distinctive Cabinet Design is a class A experience. From the beginning, with budgeting and estimating for your project, through the project management & production experience, is a worry free ride. The quality that comes out of it all, compares to know one. I can always trust that when dealing with Distinctive Cabinet, it will be an honest and quality experience.

Distinctive Cabinet Design has been an important part of our successful site buildouts and site renovations. With their expertise, they help guide the contractors and myself to fully understand each and every install with complete, timely and very detailed elevation drawings. Their availability and willingness to help ensure job completion is superb.

Where others have failed over my 5+ years with Genoa, Distinctive Cabinet Design has come through by supplying millwork, or answers in a very swift manner, and has great relationships with freight delivery specialist that get our millwork all over the U.S., making every delivery on time or even early.

With Distinctive Cabinet Design’s attention to detail and positive attitude when something needs changed, combines with quality product we put in our stores, I’m absolutely certain that they would be able to help any company in need of a trustworthy millwork supplier.

The Joseph Salon in Albertville couldn’t have been happier with the team of professionals at Distinctive Cabinet Design. From the first meeting with John, they took care of every detail. They set and followed a timeline that supported our opening date, gave us best pricing for our multiple projects, delivered on time, their set up crew was fabulous, friendly and detailed down to the clean up! We recommend Distinctive Cabinet Design to everyone, they are great craftsman and have their eye on delivering excellence!

We have had a long standing relationship with John at Distinctive Cabinet Design. We use several types of fixtures and cabinetry at our warehouse and retail stores. We love the look and functionality of our fixtures and cabinetry at each of our locations. As we grow, Distinctive Cabinet Design has helped us furnish our new locations in a timely manner by designing, building, and delivering in a timely manner. We really appreciate their work and look forward to future projects!

I have enjoyed working with Distinctive Cabinet Design since 2013. I enjoy the technical aspect of designing spaces & helping clients make the most of their space while bringing everything together to look aesthetically pleasing. We work with a wide range of clients whose style and budget differ with each project we take on. No two spaces or projects are the same. I enjoy the challenge of working on a project giving clients ideas of ways to incorporate items they may have not thought about before.

I have grown leaps and bounds with DCD. Coming from a previous kitchen showroom that worked with only box cabinets, I’ve learn to think outside the “box” and see more than one way to accomplish the task at hand. It amazes me to see the projects that come out of the shop on both the commercial and residential end. We don’t just build square boxes all the time.

I would recommend working for DCD because they care & support you both professionally and personally. Since working for DCD I feel my professional growth has been tremendous. Constantly learning every day. I have been excited to be a part of this business’ growth over the last 5+ years and appreciate all of the opportunities I have been given while here at DCD.


Distinctive Cabinet Design is a fun and challenging place to work. I have had the opportunity to do several different jobs within the company and have learned a lot. They are always looking to promote from within the company. I like the fast paced environment, it make the time fly by. Also I like the ability to move up within the company.

I cannot imagine a better environment to continue my career path. Distinctive Cabinet Design has been a first class company that harbors a family atmosphere despite its’ enormity. The company has given me enormous opportunity to advance professionally and economically.


Joanie and the Distinctive Team are just that…distinctive. Joanie listened to our ideas for function and design, then developed a beautiful plan for our kitchen, office and three bath remodel plus closets. The team then produced a fantastic end product. They never said “we can’t do that”. If a challenge arose they came to the table with ideas on solutions to keep us close to our original ideas. We are so happy with how our cabinets and closets turned out.

Laura & Jason

Thank you so much for all your prompt service, kindness and outstanding design and cabinets! It was a blessing to work with all of you! You went beyond the call of duty for us. If you ever need to show your end results to others, you are more than welcome to “show” our house! People walk in here and are amazed! Thanks again.

Rich & Josie B.

Thank you for continued support as we work through the final details here at the end of the project. It has been a pleasure working with all the people involved in the project. I felt like both you and C&D Granite kept my best interests in mind at all times which created a kitchen that I really love. And a special thank you for successfully picking up the project mid-stream and quickly assessing the situation and proposing changes to keep the project on schedule. Please pass on my appreciation to all those that contributed to the beautiful cabinets and the successful project. The cabinets are truly a work of art that I am proud to display in my home.

As we had discussed, I will measure the existing bathroom cabinet and take a few digital pictures of both the existing cabinet and what I had in mind. I look forward to working with you again and will stay in touch to schedule the final change to the oven cabinet.

Thank you so much for the countertop. It makes such a nice improvement to my laundry room. Thanks also for sending someone out right away to make the necessary adjustments so the plumber could continue to install the sink.

You’re great people to work with and you do a fantastic job!

Just a quick message to say ‘the cabinets look very nice.’ The guys were very efficient and did a fine job as we’re sure you knew they would. We sure appreciate your expertise. THANK YOU for enduring our slow pace and indecisiveness. Thanks again!

Just a quick note to thank you: The bathroom vanity and cabinet that you made for me look beautiful! I’m looking forward to the day they are installed. Our remodeler, Mike Groebner, recommended you to us and I’m really happy he did!
