The Benefits of Custom Cabinetry

When doing a kitchen or bath remodel, one major decision you’ll have to make will be whether you plan to go with off-the-shelf cabinetry or custom cabinets or perhaps a combination of the two. While pre-made cabinets will cost less, they also offer less flexibility in terms of matching exactly what you want to achieve from your remodel. The following are a few benefits of custom-built cabinets and reasons why you may want to go this route for your remodeling project.

1) Superior Appearance

One major reason that you would remodel a room in the first place is to get it looking a certain way. This is much harder to accomplish with off-the-shelf cabinets from a store. Your kitchen and bath are unique in certain ways, and you want the cabinetry in these rooms to match and reflect this uniqueness. If you have a special trim or a certain type of countertops, custom-built cabinets can be made to visually complement the color and shape you want.

2) Fitting Unusual Spaces

You may find it hard to locate pre-made cabinets that perfectly fill the row of available space for cabinets in your kitchen. This is probably even more likely if your home is older than most. You may end up having to put awkward spacers between cabinets to have them fill the horizontal space over counters and appliances that’s made for fitting your cabinetry. Custom-built cabinets solve this problem perfectly since they can be made to whatever width that will assure a smooth, uninterrupted row of cabinets across the entire available space, which should have the effect of maximizing your kitchen’s storage area.

3) Adding Personal Flair to Your Kitchen or Bath

Chances are, you’re not going to the trouble and expense of replacing cabinetry or doing an extensive remodeling of your kitchen or bath in order to make it look like everyone else’s. Off-the-shelf cabinets, make it more difficult to truly add a personal touch to your home. Perhaps you’re a wine connoisseur and want a cabinet that incorporates a wine rack. The aspiring or accomplished chef in you may want one that incorporates a spice rack and perhaps a couple of others with glass doors that show off some particularly nice china you own. With custom cabinets, your options truly are limitless.

4) The Importance of Professional Craftsmanship

When you have custom cabinetry made, you want it to last as long as possible. Most people will only do a major remodel once or maybe twice in their life. You want the job done right, so you’re enjoying your custom cabinets every time you enter the room they’re in.
