Custom Cabinets vs Stock Cabinets

What are the advantages?

Your kitchen cabinets are like permanent furniture. They dominate the look and feel of the space, and you want them to last a long time. They are truly an investment. So as you shop for kitchen cabinets, you may wonder about the differences between custom cabinets vs stock cabinets. What’s the best option for your new kitchen or kitchen renovation?

Custom Cabinets vs Stock Cabinets: 4 Key Considerations

Cabinets are essentially boxes and doors with shelves and drawers. A cabinet seems like a simple thing, yet there are many factors that make the difference between a quality cabinet and one that’s basically disappointment in a box.

The manufacturing process determines the design, style, functionality, cost, and quality of your kitchen cabinets. Let’s look at 4 key elements of a cabinet to compare custom cabinets with stock cabinets. 

  1. Materials
  2. Joints
  3. Hardware
  4. Selection

Your kitchen cabinets are like permanent furniture. They dominate the look and feel of the space, and you want them to last a long time. They are truly an investment. So as you shop for kitchen cabinets, you may wonder about the differences between custom cabinets vs stock cabinets. What’s the best option for your new kitchen or kitchen renovation?

Custom Cabinets

Custom cabinets offer limitless design and style options, a perfect fit, and superior quality construction. Made to order with sturdy joints and reinforced corners, they’re also fully assembled prior to delivery.

Stock Cabinets

Stock cabinets have the benefits of cost and convenience, but are mass produced with inferior quality materials, and are only available in predetermined styles and sizes. They often require assembly.

6 Advantages of Custom Cabinets

1. Limitless Options

You get endless possibilities with the freedom, flexibility, and extra features of custom cabinets. Tailor-made to any specification, you can choose from any colour, finish, size, shape, combination, hardware, and material. Every detail is made to suit your style and the functionality that works best for your family.

2. Perfect Fit

With stock cabinets, your kitchen design and layout is determined by the specifications of existing cabinets. But with custom cabinets, you get to design your kitchen how you want it and order the cabinets to fit. This allows you to create the perfect kitchen for your space rather than merely “working with what you’ve got.”

3. Legacy Quality

Custom cabinets are hand-built with pride, using high quality materials and first-rate manufacturing techniques designed for long-lasting durability. Small details make a big difference, and custom cabinet makers are obsessed with details.

4. Increased Property Value

The durability and quality of custom cabinets, combined with the customization of functionality and style, make custom cabinets a better value than stock cabinets when you consider the value of your home. Custom cabinets will give you a greater return on your investment.

5. No Assembly Required

Custom cabinets arrive at your home fully assembled. Not only is this a huge time-saver (and stress-reducer), it indicates the quality of the cabinets, the attention to detail, and the craftsmanship that went into building them. 

6. Less Environmental Impact

A local custom cabinet supplier allows you to choose from domestic hardwoods. Custom cabinets are built to order, which means there’s no wasted manufacturing. And local custom cabinets require less shipping than brand name stock cabinets.

9 Ways to Organize Your Kitchen to Make Eating Healthy Easier

It’s the first week of a new year, so you fill your fridge with healthy options and the best of intentions. A week later, you’re dutifully preparing a healthy snack and notice an unpleasant smell from the fridge. Your hands wade through the abundant fruits and vegetables, and land on a mushy bunch of rotting spinach. Ew.  Another week goes by and, once again, you open the fridge looking for a snack – healthy or not. You notice the contents are drastically different from two weeks ago. Gone is the colourful cornucopia of good-for-you options. In its place are takeout
