5 Reasons Custom Cabinets Are Worth the Investment

Posted in Design Advice

When renovating your home, there are many decisions to make, and one of the most important is choosing the right cabinetry. Custom cabinets may seem like an expensive investment at first, but they are well worth it in the long run. Not convinced? Let us break it down for you and go over what custom cabinetry is and why it is worth the investment. 

What is Custom Cabinetry? 

Custom cabinetry refers to cabinets that are built specifically for a particular space and are designed and constructed to meet the unique requirements and preferences of the homeowner. Custom cabinetry offers a high level of customization and allows homeowners to have cabinets that are tailor-made to their exact specifications in terms of design, size, materials, finishes, and features. 
When it comes to options for cabinetry, there are generally three main categories: stock, semi-custom, and custom.  

Stock Cabinetry: 

Stock cabinets are pre-made and mass-produced in standard sizes and designs. They are readily available for purchase off the shelf or online, and they tend to be the most affordable option. However, stock cabinets may have limited design options and may not fit perfectly in every space, as they are not built to order.  

Semi-Custom Cabinetry:  

Semi-custom cabinets are a blend of stock and custom cabinetry. They are also pre-made but offer more customization options compared to stock cabinets. Semi-custom cabinets typically come in standard sizes, but homeowners have the flexibility to make some modifications to the design, such as selecting from a wider range of finishes, door styles, hardware, and storage options.  

Custom Cabinetry:  

Custom cabinets are built from scratch, typically made by skilled craftsmen, to meet the specific requirements of the homeowner. They offer the highest level of customization, allowing homeowners to have complete control over the design, materials, finishes, hardware, and features. When it comes to custom cabinets, there are no limits.

Are Custom Cabinets worth it? 

After learning about the three different options for cabinetry, you may be asking yourself, “Are custom cabinets worth it?” Let us run you through 5 reasons why custom cabinets are worth your investment.  

1. Maximize your Space with Custom Cabinetry 

Custom cabinetry allows you to maximize the space in your kitchen allowing you to store everything you need without wasting any valuable real estate. There are no limits to cabinet sizes, which means you can utilize every inch of your kitchen and minimize wasted space or large fillers with custom kitchen cabinets. This not only makes your kitchen more functional but also makes it look more polished and organized. From tray dividers to a corner bank of drawers, to two-tier cutlery drawers, the customization opportunities to maximize your space and functionality are endless.
