Do your homework before purchasing cabinetry. Learn the difference between stock, semi-custom and custom cabinetry. There is a quality difference. Custom cabinetry gives you greater design flexibility, construction options and long-lasting durability.
What is offered?
- You need to understand what is considered to be a standard offering, and what is considered an upgrade. If an offering is an upgrade, what is the cost? Is it standard in another line, without an upcharge?
- Review the manufacturer’s selection of standard cabinet box styles and configurations. For example, does the company offer a deep base drawer or easy-access corner units that you may want to include?
- A varied selection of standard cabinet box styles allows more flexibility in designing your space.
- Consider the options for altering the cabinet size for a perfect fit.
- Consider if universal design or ADA compliant features are available.
- Consider the door styles available and if there are options to alter the edges.
- Consider the colors available.
- Look for the availability for decorative accents such as glass front doors, legs and posts, corbels and crown moulding.
