Nowak Cabinets

   Designed to be noticed®

  Just a few of our happy customers...

I wanted to write and let you know how much I love my house.  Your suggestions were priceless in making it all come together.

In my kitchen, your arrangement of the cabinets is stunning.  The island with the butcher block countertop is beautiful and we get lots of compliments on it.  I do like the contrast of color between the island and the rest of the cabinets.

Our powder room sink with cabinet makes a small look very classy.  The cabinet legs set it off and make a statement.  With the crystal and silver sconces on each side of the mirror, the marble sink looks elegant.

The upstairs bath cabinet matches

the gray tile perfectly.

Throughout all our meetings you were very conscious of trying to keep me in budget and I appreciate it.  Although I went over, it was worth every penny!

Appreciate all your help,
Cathy Walle

Hi Tracey,

I wanted to send you a few pictures!  We are almost moved back in!  What a beautiful kitchen!  Thank you for all your input, hard work and suggestions!

I love this kitchen!  It is so big!  Unbelievable how it has changed for the better!

Thanks again!



  Thanks again for all you did for Ken and I when building our new home and your great help at making our house a home.

While in the process of building our new home in Traverse City we had familiarity with Nowak Cabinets from past work in Midland. This brought us into the Nowak Cabinets in Elk Rapids, Michigan and we are glad we chose Nowak.

Our experience working with Erica Siejutt of Nowak was outstanding. We purchased cabinets for our entire home; kitchen, four bathrooms, laundry room, and bar area. Beginning with design and selection of cabinets and colors, to coordination with our builder and granite supplier, through installation, Erica made the process a professional and enjoyable experience.

Erica even turned what could have been a frustration into a positive experience when we needed to match trim boards to the color of the cabinets selected for the island in our kitchen.

The process used by the manufacturer for painting the cabinets was different than that used for painting the trim boards. There was a shade difference between the two and Erica made sure it was corrected. "It took a few trips to the house by Erica and we would try different lighting and angles until we got a perfect match", said home owner Ellen Kaufman.

The service and support we received from Erica and Nowak was excellent and we would recommend them to others because they are customer oriented and stand behind their work. They made the entire process a great one.

It has been a real pleasure to have had the opportunity to work with Tracey Nowak and Nowak Cabinets. We recently had a new home built for us. We worked with Tracey on all the cabinetry in the home- Kitchen, Master Bath, Guest Bath, Laundry Room and Lower Level Bistro area.

The space and the budgets in the overall home design were particularly challenging for the Kitchen and the Lower Level Bistro. Tracey listened carefully to our "wants" list and created absolutely beautiful and extremely functional designs for us. We love all of the cabinetry in our home and receive raves from guests seeing our home for the first time--particularly when they see the kitchen and Lower Level Bistro. They definitely have the WOW factor! We would highly recommend Nowak Cabinets to anyone.

Thank you Tracey for your wonderful professionalism and creativity with our project!

Hi Tracey,  Now that we have had a full summer in our new home, I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with all our cabinetry. It certainly was a pleasure to work with you. From our first meeting to the finished product, it was a seamless process. You were especially helpful in putting our vision for our kitchen into reality. Because of your design knowledge & expertise, we have our "dream kitchen," which is the highlight of our home. Your recommendations resulted in a beautiful space that is truly functional for us as well. We appreciate your attention to the small details that make a big impact on the design.

Thank you for listening to our wishes & making the experience so enjoyable.

"We had such a great experience with Nowak Cabinets and Erica Siejutt in particular with designing our custom kitchen, bathrooms, laundry room, mud room, and closets.

 Erica was very patient with us, spending all the time we needed to review pricing, design options, colors and finishes.  This was a very overwhelming aspect of building our new home and Erica was there to help us all along the way, she was either a phone call or email away.  Nowak Cabinets has very high standards for quality and craftsmanship, and even after we were content with our granite counter tops, they did not accept the job until it was done right!  We couldn't be happier with our new custom kitchen and every person that comes into our new home comments on it.

 We would highly recommend Nowak Cabinets to anyone looking to design a custom kitchen or any other room with cabinets and counter tops!  Also, it made us happy to be able to use a local company and contrary to popular belief, they were able to compete with and even beat the prices of the big box stores."

"Nowak worked with us to find the charm, elegance, and proper set up for the space.  They added ideas and creativity to  make our kitchen, and baths lovely..."

Dear Joe,Tracey and Erica;

 We can’t tell you how happy we are with all of our cabinetry throughout our new house! From the initial design, to the high quality of the cabinets, to the incredible installation, we couldn't be happier!

 After 8 months of living in the house, we are even more SO appreciative of all the details that you helped us develop and work through in the initial design phase. Items such as: the hidden pantry door, the hidden cat box bench, the amazing powder room vanity, the customized medicine cabinet, the knife drawer, the oversized wrapping paper drawer in the laundry room, the custom wine rack in the basement, the custom glass shelving in the master bath, and the overall master closet design, just to name a few!

 Choosing cabinetry from scratch for an entire house is huge task. Your patience and encouragement with us to work through all the designs, styles and hardware was wonderful. Thanks Tracey for all your thoughtfulness each and every time we were there!

     Really enjoyed working with the team at Nowak Cabinets on recent custom home here in Traverse City.  Erica was my primary point of contact and did an excellent job on developing outstanding designs and procuring high quality cabinets for the Kitchen, Baths, and Laundry.  I really appreciated having all the details & materials in writing and signed-off on prior to placing the order. 

The entire team of hard working, professional, and personable folks at Nowak Cabinets were a pleasure to work with and will be my first choice on my next project.

A huge "Thank You" to Tracey Nowak and Nowak Cabinets for helping us design and execute a beautiful kitchen renovation. We wanted the space to look and feel comfortably rustic in our older home. Tracey's design expertise and patience brought our vision to life. She was sensitive to our needs and wants while being conscience of our budget. Tracey's knack for customer care and communication kept the project moving smoothly and without delay. Every aspect of working with Nowak Cabinets was enjoyable; from design and product selections, to installation by skillful and precise Kevin. The project was completed in a timely manner and now we have the welcoming, comfortable kitchen we dreamed of. It has become a gathering place for family and friends. Without hesitation, we recommend Nowak Cabinets and their design team for projects of any size or complexity.

We had the pleasure of working with Nowak on our kitchen counter tops.  We were so impressed with the workmanship, the attention to detail and the kindness of everyone.

With an addition to our home in the near future, we knew without a second thought, where we would be going.

Addition came and the planning begun.  Nowak walked through every detail.  Many things we would not have even considered.  We even challenged them with some custom cabinets and they came through better than we hoped.

We are so very pleased with our new bathrooms, entertainment center, kitchenette, craft room and man cave.
