A LaRue County cabinet business takes pride in their creativity and attention to detail as they create original products for their customers.

Walters Cabinets is a custom cabinet shop that specializes in designing, making and installing cabinets for kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas of a home or business. They also design and create a variety of other items including bookcases, wet bars, entertainment centers and much more.

Owner Robbie Walters said cabinetry has been in his family for several generations as his grandfather Marshall Walters built cabinets and passed the trade on to his uncle Jim Walters who opened up Walters Cabinets in 1972. He said Walters Cabinets is what he calls a “true customer shop” as they do everything in house out of a 25,000 sq. ft. cabinet and woodworking shop located behind their showroom.

“We visit the customer’s home and we design everything to fit. We then create everything from scratch out of raw wood and then we install it for them,” Walters said. “We are very visual. One of the things that has always driven me in life is creating something from scratch or taking something and making it better. It’s rewarding to turn a normal kitchen into something gorgeous.”

Walters went on to say that they have installed cabinets throughout Kentucky and in several other states. He said in LaRue and Hardin County alone, they have installed over 11,000 sets of cabinets since opening the business.

“We try to keep the majority of our work within a 100 mile radius of Hodgenville, but we have done a lot of work outside of that as well,” Walters said. “To create something for someone is rewarding and to see how pleased the customer is with it is very rewarding. That is what I love about this business.”

Walters Cabinets is located on 4405 Old Elizabethtown Road in Hodgenville. Their hours are from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Fridays and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. Walters Cabinets also has a second location in Owensboro on 3115 Commonwealth Court Building B, suite 6. Their hours are from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
