Safer Products


We use a variety of eco-friendly materials to build our custom kitchen and bath cabinetry, including:

  • Sustainably harvested wood • Our wood comes from suppliers certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) or the Sustainable Forestry Institute (SFI).
  • Safer plywood • Our standard construction material is low-formaldehyde or no urea added formaldehyde (NAUF).
  • Low-VOC finishes • We use low-VOC (volatile organic compound) finishes exclusively.
  • Better hardware • Our drawer guide and hinge supplier is ISO 14001-certified, which means they comply with a rigorous set of international standards designed to protect the environment.

At DeWils, we not only strive to build a product that is healthier for your home and the planet, but we also work to ensure that our manufacturing process is cleaner for our surrounding community:Stump1

  • Responsible packing – We use SFI-certified and recycled packaging for all our product lines.
