Have you ever bought kitchen units and were not satisfied with the choice of box wholesalers and cabinet importers? Now you may need to take a closer look at considering custom carpentry services as an option for your kitchen remodelling project.
Types of kitchen cabinets
Warehouse kitchen cabinet
What is a warehouse kitchen cabinet? Warehouse kitchen cabinets are cabinets that are pre-assembled to a specific size and then sold by a cabinet seller. Storage cabinets are usually produced in 2-inch increments. With some basic kitchen layouts, such as an L-shaped kitchen, you can place cabinets without much difficulty. But what do you do when you put lockers between two walls? Ideally, in this case, the cabinet dealer can supply you with pieces of padding to remove any large holes that eventually occur when using cabinets built within 2-inch steps. These cabinet fillers can be cut to fit the rest of the space quite well. The main disadvantage of warehouse kitchen cabinets is the already mentioned incremental dimension, but also quality. Although anything, low to medium cost storage cabinets are usually made of thinner materials and have economy hardware such as cabinet doors and sliding drawers.
The use of storage cabinets has several advantages, the first thing that comes to mind is the price. Because cabinets are in stock, they can be very cheap. Another advantage is the speed, in most cases, the sellers have access to larger warehouses where the cabinets are stored, and you can order your warehouse cabinet in a few short weeks or a few days.
Custom kitchen units
Custom kitchen cabinets are cabinets made exactly to suit your kitchen, design, taste, and needs. Conventional kitchen cabinets can be easily built to fit between two walls or meet special angles, which kitchen cabinets cannot. There are many benefits to conventional cabinets that are not available in storage cabinets. The benefits at the top of the list are a selection. Since your new kitchen cabinets will be made to measure by a carpenter, you can create them in every conceivable style. You can also make cabinets that are in a unique or different wood. You can also have a wider selection of cabinet doors and drawer fronts. Some custom cabinet makers choose to outsource their doors and drawer fronts, in which case they usually have a very large door catalog to choose from.
For custom cabinets, you can choose the type of fittings, such as cabinet doors or drawers. Most now choose hinges and drawer pull-outs with soft side closures. Not only is it very popular, but I would not be surprised if it became the standard in the coming years.
Tailor-made cabinet price
Most people want to know how much a custom cabinet compares to storage cabinets. It is almost impossible to answer with any level of accuracy. The real fact is that custom cabinets are more expensive than the bottom rows of the same storage cabinets. But we see that conventional cabinets are more competitive in medium to tall cabinets. Despite the higher price, classic kitchens almost always pay extra. Cabinets are designed in a much more durable way because most conventional cabinet manufacturers use material-inch-thick material on cabinets, not much stronger. All cabinet stores have different prices, so for the most accurate estimate, we recommend always comparing the same exact kitchen design from store to store.
