There are a few advantages with using stock cabinetry the very first one that comes to mind is cost. Since inventory cabinets are mass manufactured they can be quite affordable.
´Custom´ Kitchen Cabinets
Custom kitchen‐cabinets are cabinets that are built just for your kitchen layout, design taste and needs. Custom kitchen cabinetry can easily be built to fit between two walls or to match odd angles, something not possible with stock kitchen―cabinets. There are multiple advantages with custom cabinets that can't be had with stock cabinetry. The advantages that are at the top of the list are selection.

You can also have them produce cabinets that are in rare or exotic woods. You can also have a much larger selection of cabinet doors plus drawer fronts. Some custom cabinet producer do opt to outsource their doors also drawer fronts, in this case they will usually have a very large catalog of doors for you to make your selection.

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.
