Why Opt for Custom Cabinetry in a New or Remodeled Home?

custom cabinetryCreate a custom cabinetry wish list. If you’re remodeling your existing home, take a minute to consider what you like and don’t like about the cabinetry you currently have. What elements would you like to keep and what would you change or add? The same exercise works for a brand new home project, too, as you always have a sense of what cabinetry concepts you have been pleased or dissatisfied with in the past. Providing your custom cabinetry specialists with lots of information up front will go a long way towards the creation of exactly what you want this time around.

If you are fortunate enough to have home construction specialists who also have in-house expertise in custom cabinetry, you’re already saving in so many ways. All designs and plans can incorporate the specifics of your custom cabinetry right from the initial concept. No secondary company will be needed to subcontract and come in, measure up, design and create cabinetry on a piecemeal basis offsite. You also won’t have to deal with separate or additional delivery and installation schedules and charges, as your custom cabinetry will be accommodated right from the start as part of the overall project.

Stock vs. Custom Cabinets

Stock cabinets are ready-made products purchased from large home improvement centers.  Usually, they are machine-fabricated, and follow standard measurements, which may not fit with your new or home remodel design. Usually, filler cabinets are used to close unsightly gaps left by stock cabinets, but the end result is never flawless.

Custom cabinetry, on the other hand, offers a lot more options for you as a homeowner, as it can be made to fit in any particular part of your living space. When expert craftsmen design and assemble your custom cabinetry from scratch, there is no room for disappointment. When comparing customized cabinets with their stock counterparts, you will immediately see their refinement and overall superiority, ensuring that you get real value for your money.

Custom Cabinetry Gives You Just What You Want

custom cabinetryMost stock cabinets will not fit the overall theme or feel of your home, and can compromise the design flow and unified look you want to achieve. Customization lets you plan wisely, incorporating cabinets and maximizing storage wherever you want. Install handy drawers and built-in shelves, even in the slimmest of spaces.

Why settle for prefab when there’s the opportunity to go tailor made? Opting for custom cabinetry also allows you the luxury of choosing the materials to be used, right down to the finishes and additional decorative details. Impressive custom cabinetry may be one of the best decisions you will ever make in enhancing the value of your home.

With custom cabinetry, talented craftsmen make your vision come to life through the use of quality materials for all cabinets and trim. The results will be stunning, long-lasting and absolutely ideal for your needs, plus the perfect match for your architectural and décor style.
