Whether you are building a new home or remodeling the kitchen of your existing home, it’s important to find kitchen cabinets that will give your kitchen the style and feel that makes it your own. While there may be a few advantages to premade cabinets, you will never regret taking the time to design and order custom cabinets.
There is a common misconception that custom cabinets cost significantly more than premade cabinets. However, if you compare high-end, quality premade cabinets with custom cabinets, you will quickly discover that the cost is very similar. If you compare lower-end premade cabinets with custom cabinets, the savings you will see are from the use of lower quality materials and hardware. A good carpenter, who makes quality kitchen cabinets, would not be likely to settle for cheap materials. Therefore, the only fair comparison is between high-end premade cabinets and custom cabinets.
One of the biggest advantages to custom cabinets is the ability to fit your cabinets to the space you have without wasting space with filler boards. You have the ability to add spice racks, a garbage and recycling drawer, cupboards with sliding shelves and more. You are really only limited by the scope of your imagination.
Another advantage to custom cabinets is the wide selection of wood you can choose from. Premade cabinets usually come in three or four colors and woods that are most popular at the time of purchase. If you want anything different, custom is the way to go. You can choose the wood and the stain you like without having to compromise your design.
Using custom built kitchen cabinets gives you the ability to design you kitchen in a way that will fit your needs. It also gives you the ability to select from a wider variety of woods, stains and hardware, ensuring your cabinets fit your style. All of that, along with the knowledge that you are getting a quality product that will last a lifetime, makes choosing custom cabinets an easy decision to make.
