Wesley Ellen Design & Millwork
Timeless, traditional cabinetry never goes out of style, especially white kitchens. At least that’s what Wesley Ellen Design & Millwork has found to be true.
Designers and cabinetmakers, partners and husband and wife, Ronald Wesley and Marilyn Ellen Isaak have been serving clients in Alberta and British Columbia for over ten years, specializing in flush inset, face-frame cabinetry.
“Typically, we work directly with homeowners right from the design stage,” says Marilyn. “We never know where the next call will come from. Most of the time people find our website and after going through our galleries they realize that what we offer is exactly what they’ve been looking for.”
A woodworker since his youth, Ron admits, “Our clients are very clear on the look and quality they are after. They want cabinets and built- ins that look more like furniture than cabinets; they want dovetailed drawer boxes with full extension, and soft closing concealed slides. Ultimately, they want to feel confident they are working with someone with experience they can trust. And they definitely don’t want particle board; they want plywood interiors.”
Not surprisingly, all of this comes standard with Wesley Ellen cabinets. This level of craftsmanship is shown here, a custom home built by a Lethbridge builder Cal De Jager of Touchstone Homes.
The main and butler’s kitchen and the old English-style library all feature Wesley Ellen’s custom beaded, inset cabinets. The clients chose exposed barrel hinges and wrought iron cup pulls and knobs. A large, apron front sink affords country charm and is right at home in this family-friendly, traditional kitchen. The spacious, two-story custom library, featuring five window seats and a vaulted ceiling, is built in stained white oak.
