Custom Cabinets: Custom cabinets allow homeowners to fully customize the size, shape, design, hardware, and any special features that you would like your cabinets to have. These cabinets can be created to fit into any kitchen, no matter the shape or size. This makes them an ideal choice for rooms that have an irregular shape, unusual storage needs, or specific design requirements. Most cabinetry professionals use high quality materials and construct their cabinets with the utmost care and concern. Better materials and craftsmanship means that your cabinets will add value to your home and will withstand many years of use.
Beginning with base corner cabinets, we have: (1) the symmetrical easy reach -- this cabinet is the same length on each side of the corner and contains either shelves along its rear walls or a carousel with shelves "pie-cut" to accommodate the doors (a center hinge allows opening either the first door or both); (2) the asymmetircal easy reach -- this cabinet is a little shorter on one leg (if it includes a carousel, that diameter will be the length of the cabinets shorter leg); (3) the revolving -- this cabinet is like cabinet #1 but its doors revolve with the carousel shelves; (4) the diagonal-front -- this cabinet allows a full-circle carousel; and (5) the blind -- this cabinet looks like a straight-run cabinet but it extends into the corner along the side of an adjoining cabinet, structure, or appliance thus making its "buried" shelves accessible only from the front door (to allow better use of the "blind" corner cabinet, some manufacturers have cleverly created a cabinet with a first section which, on opening the door, pulls out and pivots to the side to expose roll-out trays which can then move forward to present their contents). Finally, there is a sink base corner cabinet that can be either an "L-shaped" cabinet to hold a butterfly sink or a diagonal-front cabinet with a regular straight-line sink -- a caveat whenever a corner sink cabinet is used: be sure that adequate standing area (for loading and unloading the dishwasher) is created by placing a 12-inch wide regular cabinet between the dishwasher and the corner cabinets side.
Special Order Cabinets The upgrade from store cabinets would be ordering them from your local home improvement store or local lumberyard. Quality will be much noticeably higher than stock cabinets, but your options are still somewhat limited as to what you can order. Expect to see laminated interiors in either white or maple color, solid wood drawers and doors, and upgrades such as soft close hinges or soft close drawer slides. These cabinets will come finished and ready to install. Typically, these will be offered in all 3" increments, usually ranging from 12 inches wide to 36 or even 48 inches wide. Doors and drawer fronts may be somewhat customizable in terms of styles and colors, but options are still limited. Still expect 1/2" thick carcasses (the box part of the cabinets) and 1/8" to 1/4" thick cabinet backs.
Varieties of Bathroom Linen Cabinets These cabinets are available in various designs and sizes to fit your bathrooms. For those who wish to give their bathrooms a modern look, smaller cabinets with more space is available and for those who prefer traditional lifestyle and choose not to make the place look stuffy antique style cabinets are available. You can store more than just linens with proper cabinets that are functional. There are a few linen cabinets that could fit in narrow places such as hallway and passages leading to the bathrooms with no extra space.
