There are various choices to be made when remodeling your‐kitchen. From color choices, layout, style, and type of materials to be used throughout the kitchen. With so many choices to be made, you may not know where to start. To make an informed decision, its important to know the differences between the two types of cabinets.
Pre-made cabinets also known as "stock cabinets" are commonly made ahead of time as-well as stocked by a supplier ready for sale. These cabinets come in specified pre-made sizes ranging from 9" to 48" in width, usually in 3" increments. Because ready made cabinets have specified sizes, they limit the options for cabinet height, width also depth, which may limit the space available in irregular shaped kitchens. It's can make fitting in extra large appliances difficult. Also, ready made cabinets are most likely made of thinner materials as-well as lesser quality components such as the hinges, etc. These ready made or stock cabinets need to have fillers used, which are wood pieces that are similar to the color of the cabinetry, that fill in the extra space left over between the cabinets.
Custom made cabinetry allows you to utilize the space of the kitchen to the fullest extent. By having your cabinets custom made you get to choose between options that may not be available to you with ready made cabinetry. Some of these options you get to decide with custom built–cabinets are the depth, height, width, type of wood along with choice of color that fits your needs plus taste buds. Being able to choose which height, size and depth, allows you to maximize the space available to you, because the cabinetry is built with designed however you choose, giving you the features you desire, such as deeper spaces for large dishes. Also, there is no need for the use of fillers with custom cabinets, as they are made to fit exactly as needed. The higher quality construction as-well as features of custom built—cabinets means your kitchen will be enjoyed for much longer. Most likely custom built—cabinets will only be slightly more expensive. But the slight extra cost will be worth it, as you get exactly what you want.
