Because custom cabinets are made from scratch, you will need to allow plenty of time for them to be created and installed. Homeowners who want their cabinets replaced quickly should make a different choice. Also, these cabinets are generally more expensive than other options. The high quality and customization of this cabinetry can make them much more expensive than other stock or semi-custom cabinets. Stock Cabinets: The biggest advantage of stock cabinets is that they are readily available for installation. Many home improvement stores and big box retailers sell stock cabinets that can be picked up or delivered within a week or two. Manufacturers of these cabinets offer a variety of styles and colors that will match your home décor and compliment your style. Homeowners like these cabinets because they are very affordable and easy to find.
Once the sub-bases for the lower cabinets are set, I recommend that you install the upper cabinets next as it is just plain easier. Once the wider base cabinets are installed it is harder to work on the narrower upper cabinets. Just measure up from the sub-base to get the top of the cabinets, add the counter thickness, add the space you want between the lower and upper cabinets (typically eighteen inches) and make a pencil mark. That is the bottom of your upper cabinets. Since your sub-base is level, just transfer the upper cabinet mark all along the run and you will have mark to set the bottom of each upper cabinet. Next locate all the wall studs and make a vertical mark using your level that will protrude both above and below the cabinets.
Secondly selection of the cabinets depends upon what you wish to store. If you do not intend to store too much of linen, opt for the towel racks style which can be rotated. Whatever the style be the materials used to make these cabinets are durable and can withstand the rough conditions of any bathroom. You get to choose from a wide option of metal, steel, glass and wood for a touch of modernism, but just be assured that they are rust free. The doors of the cabinet are one of the most important aspects to consider when buying a cabinet for your bathroom. Free standing ones have an option of opaque wood and glass doors. While the glass doors suit accessories like perfumes, lotions, creams and other antique items used in the bath, things like bath towels, linens, kids toys and wash clothes look better stored in cabinets with wooden doors.
Since stock cabinets are mass produced they can be quite affordable. Another advantage is speed, in most cases dealers have access to larger warehouses where the cabinets are stored, and you can have your stock cabinet order within a few short weeks or in some cases days. Custom Kitchen Cabinets Custom kitchen cabinets are cabinets that are built just for your kitchen layout, design taste and needs. Custom kitchen cabinetry can easily be built to fit between two walls or to match odd angles, something not possible with stock kitchen cabinets. There are many advantages with custom cabinets that can not be had with stock cabinetry. The advantages that are at the top of the list are selection.
