Wondering if custom cabinetry is the right option for your home remodeling project? Your cabinets take up significant visual space in any room they’re in – just look around your kitchen as an example. Making sure you’re choosing the right cabinets can make a big impact on the overall look and feel of the entire space, so it’s important to understand and consider your cabinet options carefully.
When it comes to cabinetry, your options can be categorized into one of two options: stock cabinets or custom cabinets. Stock cabinets are pre-built and ready to be installed as they are. Meanwhile, custom cabinets are made to order. This means you’ll be able to pick and choose the design elements you want and then your new cabinets will be made to your specifications. There are pros and cons to each type of cabinetry solution that you’ll want to be aware of.
Pros and Cons of Stock Cabinets
As mentioned, stock cabinets are pre-built and typically in stock at a cabinet store or their warehouse. This allows for faster availability. If you’re on a tight deadline to complete your remodeling project or simply don’t want to wait, in-stock cabinets will be your best option. The downside is that you’ll be limited in your choice of colors, styles, and designs to just a handful of options. Additionally, stock cabinets come in predetermined dimensions that may or may not work well for the space you’re remodeling.
Pros and Cons of Custom Cabinetry
On the other hand, custom cabinetry will take longer because the cabinets are built after they’re ordered. However, if you’re planning ahead and have enough time for custom cabinetry, this is a far better option to consider. Not only will you have complete control over the aesthetics of the cabinetry, including the wood species, stain or paint color, door profiles, hardware, and more, but you’ll also be able to ensure a perfect fit for your home. Custom cabinetry allows for more flexibility in the dimensions of each cabinet so that you’ll be able to maximize the storage space you get from them.
Another Custom Cabinetry Option
There is another category of custom cabinetry that you should be aware of as well. This is cabinet refacing. As opposed to a cabinet replacement project in which you design your cabinets and have them installed from the ground up, cabinet refacing works with what you already have. This process involves leaving your cabinet boxes intact and installing completely custom cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and finishing elements to provide a brand-new, yet cohesive look for your cabinets. What’s more, when you choose a company like Reborn Cabinets to complete your cabinet refacing project, you can enjoy these stunning results in just three days. This faster and simpler process offers all of the benefits of completely custom cabinetry but at a fraction of the price of a complete cabinet tear-out and replacement.
