Custom Cabinet Cost Most people want to know how much more custom cabinetry will cost as compared to stock cabinets. This is almost impossible to answer with any degree of accuracy. The real truth of the matter is that custom cabinets are going to cost more that the lower lines of comparable stock cabinetry. But we have seen custom cabinets be very competitive with the mid to higher range stock cabinets. Despite the higher prices of custom kitchen cabinets it is almost always worth the extra cost. The cabinets are built in a much more solid fashion as well as most custom cabinetmakers will use a ¾ inch thick cabinet case material, it doesnt get much more solid than that. All cabinet shops will have varying prices, so we do recommend you always compare the same exact kitchen design from shop to shop for the most accurate estimations.
Stock, or store cabinets, are what you see if you go to a large home improvement store. Each store will typically have a very basic, unfinished cabinet line that is stocked in store and ready to purchase and take home that day. These are usually your cheapest option, but selections are very limited. Most of the time these will need to be finished either by you or by a contractor. Dont expect anything spectacular, these are usually cabinets in their most basic form. Drawer fronts are typically made from glued up strips of wood instead of one single piece of wood. Doors are usually paneled doors instead of raised wood panel doors. The carcasses of the cabinets will typically be cut from particle board, and if there is a back panel it is usually 1/8" hard-board. Countertop fastening brackets will be small, plastic corner brackets with a single screw hole for attaching to the counter.
Stock cabinets are already manufactured as for samples for the customers in standard sizes so that they get an idea about what designs are available and how the stock cabinets look. If we speak about the thickness of the stock cabinets, they are nine inches wide. Height of these cabinets is about thirty to thirty-three inches. These cabinets are built as samples for the customers to have an idea about the stock variety available at the shop. For the manufacturing of these cabinets, plywood and melamine is used. Each part of the cabinet is made accurately and efficiently and when all the pieces are built then they are finally joined together to form a full fledge cabinet. Custom Cabinets Now comes the turn of the custom kitchen cabinets. These cabinets are made according to the customers specifications and requirements.
What is your choice? For those who like to add a touch of tradition to their bathrooms cabinet towers made of wood with carvings and designs are available. The accurate carvings used in such cabinets offer a royal look. Short cabinets that can be accommodated either below the sinks or the wash basins consume the least space. Though the ideal cabinet for any bathroom would be the narrow, long ones which can be placed either in the corners or mounted, the smaller ones fit to the size of the room and the budget too. The wooden cabinets are usually coated with special varnish that can withstand the wet and humid conditions of the bathroom and infestation of insects and bugs.
