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.
This way you will not be searching for a stud while standing on a ladder and balancing a cabinet. It is a few minutes work well spent. Next remove all cabinet doors marking each one is marked as to which cabinets they belong too. If you are working alone, take a piece of one by two inch furring and screw it to the wall flush with the bottom of the upper cabinet mark. You will be able to rest the cabinet on the furring while you plumb the cabinet and fasten it to the wall. Starting with the first cabinet, go ahead and screw the cabinet securely to the studs using three inch drywall screws. You can countersink them or course or use screw washers depending on what you want the final appearance to be.
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.
Bathroom cabinets are sold by kitchen cabinet retailers, building supply stores, home improvement centres and a couple more. While ready to assemble ones are the cheapest ones, decide on the quality, size, design and decorative elements of the cabinet before purchasing it. Check the drawers of the cabinets. They must move in and out smoothly without any crackling noise. Also they must not sag or come out fully when pulled out completely. Not but the least check the material used to build the cabinet. Also see if the piece has a good finish and outlook, after all it is going to add good looks to your bathroom and you are paying for it. Check the doors, accessories used, the hinges and other hardware used to make it. Bathroom linen cabinets are one of the best options that offer your bathrooms and clean and tidy look.
