Custom Cabinets Vs. Stock Cabinets
So, you’re thinking about remodeling your kitchen and aren’t sure whether to go with custom or stock cabinets. Well we at HDF are here to help with some information to consider when you are choosing. Many factors will come into play when deciding. Factors like budget, design, and time-line.
You will want to make sure that when you are setting up your kitchen budget a big amount will have to be allocated to the cabinets. Cabinets are the heart and soul of your kitchen, so you will want to get the best that you can afford in the style that is fitting to your kitchen style.
Stock cabinets are made to common sizes and configurations, so if your kitchen is oddly shaped you may not be able to use the stock cabinets. Although they are usually more affordable than custom cabinets they can sometimes end up being quite expensive. Another feature for buying stock is the delivery time. Most of the time stock cabinets are ready for immediate delivery. You will also notice when looking through these cabinets, the selection is limited and they can be hard to assemble and install.
Custom cabinets are the ideal choice for a kitchen remodel or new build. They allow full customization of size, design, shape, hardware and any special features you may want with your cabinetry. They can fit any kitchen’s size, even the oddly shaped ones. Of course, custom cabinets are more expensive than custom, but if you can afford them they are well-worth it. Custom cabinets are also designed and installed by professionals, so you are guaranteed a perfect outcome once you place your order. A drawback to custom cabinetry is that because they are custom they will take much longer to be delivered than stock.
When making your choice of whether to buy custom or stock, you need to keep in mind your budget, design and time-line to finish. This will help you decide which will be best for your new kitchen.
