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.
When starting a kitchen remodeling project, you want to make sure that you are familiar with the different materials and products available. Knowing what is out there allows you to make the best possible choice for your needs and budget. Replacing your kitchen cabinets will make an impressive impact on the appearance and function of your room. Familiarizing yourself with the various options for cabinetry will help you choose kitchen cabinets that are best suited to your lifestyle, design preferences, and budget. When choosing cabinets for your home, there are a few choices available. Custom cabinets are created to specifically fit your kitchen layout and design. Stock cabinets are mass produced and available at most home improvement stores. Semi-custom cabinets are pre-made cabinets but offer a variety of modifications and style options that allow the kitchen designer much more freedom to create a layout that is tailored to the specific needs and tastes of the consumer.
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.
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.
