Perhaps the biggest decision you’ll have to make during your kitchen remodel is what type of cabinets to install. If you want cabinets unique to your home and tastes, then custom kitchen cabinetry is certainly calling your name. Here’s some more information to get you started.
The cost of custom kitchen cabinetry can vary greatly depending on the manufacturer, type of cabinets and quality of materials, as well as the dimensions of the cabinets themselves and any structural adjustments made to your kitchen. Find a qualified cabinet installer in your area to get started.
Custom cabinetry is considered to be the most durable cabinetry option out there, because it’s made to fit the dimensions and needs of each individual kitchen. Wood species typically used are among the very toughest and beautiful-looking, lending an old-world quality and craftsmanship that is highly sought after in today’s kitchens.
The maintenance required of custom kitchen cabinetry depends on the materials used. However, most kitchen cabinets can be kept looking clean simply by wiping them down with a soft, damp cloth and using a cleaning solution of dishwashing detergent and warm water on tougher stains. It’s best to avoid abrasive cleaners, as these can strip cabinets of their finish.
When it comes to custom kitchen cabinets, you must first choose your kitchen layout. Layout is very important to the size and number of cabinets you need.
You also need to choose what material the cabinets should be made of. There are many different types of wood, and even multiple metal options. You will then need to decide whether you want the whole cabinet constructed out of solid wood, or if the interior components can be a form of particle board or melamine.
In many cases, a custom cabinet builder will be competitively priced—even comparable to the pre-built cabinets from major chains. The added convenience of being able to make changes as you go, along with having someone accessible to call back as needed makes custom-built cabinetry quite appealing.
