About Nowak Cabinets

Nowak Cabinets was founded in 1990 as a family business.  Since 2018, when the business was purchased by Brent and Shannon Boncher, it has grown without losing that family touch, expert knowledge, or unwavering integrity. Uncompromising customer service through experienced and detailed master designers continues to be the hallmark of the business. That caliber of work explains why Nowak Cabinets is the premier kitchen and bath design studio for lakefront homes throughout Northern Michigan. We look forward to earning your business and showing you what we can do!
