Typically, stocked cabinets are offered in extremely limited sizes, and while most cabinets are offered in 3" increments, some stock cabinets may only be available in 6" increments. This is important when it comes to the overall layout of your kitchen remodel, because stock cabinets are mass-produced to the same size and specifications with no regards as to where they go. You will usually need fillers and end panels to create a finished look when using stock cabinets. The end of each cabinet that is exposed, on both the upper and the base cabinets, will need to be finished to match the front of the cabinets. This will include cutting and fitting finished panels onto the cabinet carcass itself. Keep in mind that if you are running your cabinets wall to wall, then finishing the ends is not important since the wall will hide the ends.
But what do you do when you are fitting cabinets between two walls? Well in this case the cabinet dealer can supply you with filler pieces to take up any large gaps that will eventually occur by using cabinets that are built within 2 inch increments. These cabinet filler pieces can be cut to fit the remaining gap relatively well. The main disadvantage with stock kitchen cabinets is the aforementioned incremental sizing but also the quality. Although as with anything the lower to mid range priced stock cabinets are typically made from thinner materials and have economy hardware such as cabinet door hinges and drawer slides. There are a few advantages with using stock cabinetry the very first one that comes to mind is cost.
Why do you need a bathroom linen cabinet? It is not possible for all of us to construct huge bathrooms in our houses. It is in fact the smallest room of the house. Most of the space is consumed by a wash basin, bath tub, toilet commode, pipes and taps. In such situations bathroom linen cabinets help in holding bulky stuff such as bath towels, linens and wash clothes. Many people also use these cabinets to keep hair dryers, bathroom reading books, newspapers, lotions and creams. They are not just a decorative piece of every bathroom but also help in keeping the things set and managed well.
Wall corner cabinets include: (1) the diagonal-front -- this cabinet has a modified pentagon shape (this is the one most frequently chosen for this position); (2) the easy reach -- this cabinet appears to be two adjoining wall cabinets (it has a center hinge to allow opening the first door or both and allows direct access to the contents on the shelves); and the blind -- half of this cabinet is buried in the corner itself and can be accessed only by the front door of the cabinet -- this cabinet is the unfortunate choice in instances where structure or an appliance allows no other option. In conclusion then, when choosing cabinets in general and wall or base corner cabinets in particular, your best choices will depend on the size and shape of available space, your budget and the items that you plan to store there. Additionally, you really should make every effort to: (a) be as fully informed as possible about your cabinet options and (b) carefully review all of your decisions before ordering any cabinets -- whether or not you have bottomless pockets.
