One of the biggest concerns when remodeling a kitchen is the cost. Often times, cabinetry accounts for a large portion of that renovation budget – sometimes almost half! As with most things, there is no “one size fits all”, or should we say no price fits all.
Cabinets require a lot of design, construction and labor. On top of this there are a variety of options available when it comes to materials, hardware, finish, and add-ons. All of these details can greatly affect the cost.
Stock cabinets may be a suitable solution for homeowners depending on their space. Rather than custom cabinets, stock cabinetry can be installed faster and is more affordable. However, there are some serious limitations on what is available. Styles, configurations and finishes are limited, making stock cabinets not always the best option.
Having custom kitchen cabinets installed gives you endless options. A lot of custom kitchens have unique configurations requiring a more precise fit for the cabinetry. The size of the cabinets can be customized to your desired height and depth, even extending them to the ceiling. Fine detailing and special finishes are often added to pull the space together – a level of detail not obtainable with stock cabinets. You can choose any combination of materials, styles and finishes you wish to make your kitchen totally custom to your needs.
Whatever options and styles you choose for your kitchen cabinets, remember that they will last a long time and get a lot of use. Make sure they are crafted from quality materials to suit your home and family for years to come.
