Why Choose Custom Cabinetry?

Home improvement is an investment in both your home’s value and the quality of time spent living in it.  When you’re considering a remodel, it’s essential to identify your motivation.  If you’re planning to put it on the market in the next 12 months, you should know that kitchens and baths tend to be the first areas potential homeowners inspect.  Outdated, worn or poorly designed cabinetry, especially in the kitchen may be a deal-breaker.  In this instance, your investment in custom cabinetry will increase your financial return by adding that “wow” factor.  If the intention is to remain in your home for 5+ years and refresh your most used space(s), your priorities shift a bit.  Over time, our physical needs, workflow habits, and tastes change.  Custom cabinetry allows you the freedom to design your home for the life you live, and envision for the future.

If you’re balancing the idea of stock versions against custom-crafted cabinetry, there are a few vital things to consider:

Quality is a significant factor.  Stock cabinets are mostly low-quality materials assembled with screws and glue.  Custom cabinets are crafted to stand the test of time, made from high-quality material and professionally installed.

Selection is another advantage.  When you choose custom cabinetry, your options are virtually endless and personalized to the smallest detail.  Far and above what you would find with a stock version!  When you customize, you are in complete control of the style, wood, finish, and hardware. 

Say goodbye to wasted space.  Rather than trying to plug a square peg into a round hole, you have complete control of the height, depth, and width of each component.  For these reasons and more, stock cabinets cannot compete.
