As founder and principal architect of a design/build company, Vince Petrarca depends on high-quality products that he can provide for clients at a fair price. Thanks to smart shopping, he was able to design and build a house for his sister for just $150 a square foot. Petrarca likes AyA cabinets for their budget-friendly cost, variety of style options, and durability. For his sister’s house, he selected the flat-panel Manhattan door in natural maple. The cost of the cabinets includes installation, and that really helps Petrarca’s bottom line. “Everything is well-made from shelves to hardware,” he says.
