Why You Need Custom Kitchen Cabinets

5 Benefits of Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Cabinets are the focal point of a kitchen. Although they may appear as just simple storage solutions, they should be built to last with a design that represents the owner’s personal aesthetic.

Cabinets from big box stores are cheaper, but lack the value that custom cabinets provide. Here are some of the reasons to choose custom cabinetry over prefabricated:

1. Built to Last

Custom cabinets are made by skilled cabinet makers by hand – not on assembly lines. Cabinet makers take pride in creating beautiful works of art. Furthermore, custom cabinets are quality construction that’s built to last.

2. Local Sourcing

Custom cabinetry uses only the finest quality local woods. You have a much broader choice of wood for your project including using local or domestic hardwoods that lessen the impact on the environment.


3. Design Specific to your needs

You can choose the elements that work best for you. You don’t have to settle for prefabricated dimensions, allowing your kitchen workspace to accommodate all heights within a kitchen, short or tall. Whether you need a specific cutlery cabinet, trash drawer, wine rack, pullout cutting boards, or more, custom cabinetry design can meet any demand.


4. Best Material Selection

Stock cabinets are manufactured in different settings at different times, limiting the quality and finish of the wood. Custom sourcing, however, guarantees customized selection of wood, style, finish, and hardware to address your goals and needs.


5. Built to Order

Unlike stock cabinets, custom cabinetry can fit to any kitchen layout or floor plan. Stock cabinets are at a disadvantage when it comes to traditional layouts, as they can only fit standard kitchen dimensions. This can lead gaps and spaces between cabinets, creating an unseemly look. Only customized cabinetry can fit unusual kitchen designs.
