Frameless Cabinets will have the doors meeting the other door and will have drawers against other drawers. Looking at the front of the cabinet, you will see only the door or the drawer not the cabinet box itself. 10 x 10 Standard is just that a standard measure meaning 10 foot of base cabinets and 10 foot of wall cabinets. Manufacturers have used this calculation for their standard kitchen cabinets. You can still change this to meet your footage requirements but they will be a special order instead of than the standard measurements.
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.
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.
Find a room in your house or the basement to assemble them. Make sure that once these cabinets are assembled that you can still get them through the door and back into the kitchen. When they are assembled, they are going to be big, bulky items to move around. Youre going to need several people to move them too. Stock Cabinets or Factory-Assembled RTA has been fully assembled by the factory and are shipped to the dealer. These are a quick assembly process. If you dont have time or talent for assembling things, or dont have an assembly area, this may be best. The dealer will provide a crew or arrange for their installation.
