Cliff Anderson


A classic tale of starting from the ground up; I began working in the cabinet business in 1998 for a local company helping out with deliveries. As I became interested in learning the differences in the cabinet sizes and door styles/finishes, I also became very interested in learning how they transform from concepts to installations. For the next several years, I assisted with numerous installations and attended various design classes offered through cabinet manufacturers. Over the course of many years, I became proficient in both designing and cabinet installations. Designing kitchens and baths come naturally when you know exactly how they can be installed.

While continuing to design and install, I moved on to management and helped build a successful business. After building many great relationships with homeowners and builders of Manatee County, I decided it was time for me to launch my own business. My real strength and passion is my attention to detail. I pride myself on my reputation for following through and doing a great job. When not working, I enjoy various forms of exercise and love to do family activities with my beautiful wife and two daughters.

Dave Clary

Showroom Manager & Creative Director

Dave has almost 20 years in the cabinetry industry, starting his career with Lowe’s Home Improvement in Illinois. While working full-time as a cabinet specialist, Dave also worked toward a degree in biology. Once he graduated, Dave moved to Florida to pursue a career using his BS degree. However, Dave decided that kitchen and bath design was what he really loved doing.

After 10 years with Lowe’s, Dave embarked upon a new journey with a local cabinet dealer as a designer, which is where he met Cliff. Over the next 6 years, Dave honed his skills in all aspects of cabinetry from initial concepts to installation. Dave was then given an opportunity to spread his wings and began working with international clients in Bermuda, the Caribbean, and even South Korea for their cabinetry, appliances, plumbing, flooring, and countertop needs – really anything that was needed to build or remodel their homes. After 3 ½ years, Dave realized he missed working face-to-face with his clients in the showroom and in their homes as opposed to phone and internet-based communication. ​Dave is excited to be back working with Cliff and assisting him to continue building his business.
