Defining Your Style with Cabinetry

There are many ways you can dress your home to create your dream space. Your home is a reflection on you through your style and what makes you feel happy. When you have guests, you want everyone to feel welcomed, relaxed and just as happy as you are to be there.

Cabinets aren’t just for the kitchen anymore.

Before you start the project, hire an expert; someone to guide and assist you throughout the entire process. We have talented designers on staff here at Kitchen Views. Their knowledge of products is unparalleled and their foresight into potential issues makes them extremely valuable to have on your remodeling team. Once you have a designer you are comfortable with, you can then begin to weigh out your options and start creating your budget and timeline. The most prominent style defining item in your new space will be your cabinetry.  With so many options available, whether they are custom made, semi-custom or stock cabinetry, you have the opportunity to create your dream home. Working with your designer, you will determine which option will be the best fit for your budget, timeline, and most importantly, your home. Below we summarize the differences between these types of cabinets.

The most economical option is to use stock cabinets. They come in standard sizes and finish colors, and offer little to no modifications. There are options available to spruce up their functionality such as pull out baskets to hide the trash receptacle, or pull out shelving to keep items like spices neatly organized. These cabinets are usually readily available, making it easier to keep your remodel timeline on track.

If you want to tailor your space closer to your own style, you may look into adding semi-custom or custom cabinets. The addition of semi-custom products allows you to add more personal touches to make your kitchen more unique to fit your lifestyle. Features such as soft close doors and large drawers for storage can be included. You will find more door styles and color options, and the finish on these is better than the finish on a standard stock cabinet. If you choose to use semi-custom cabinetry, you’ll want to plan your timeline accordingly as these may take 4-8 weeks to be delivered.

Sometimes, the most desirable option for your particular remodel would be the choice of having your cabinets’ custom made, whether it is a custom size or finish. In this category you will get the most impeccable quality of cabinet. There are more wood species to choose from. You have the ability to choose the color, the finish and finish techniques to ultimately define your space your way. Some manufacturers even have color matching ability to give you exactly what color you are looking for. The cabinet can be created in any size and to fit any configuration. Choosing this option is the most expensive, and extends the timeline, because these cabinets can take anywhere from 6-12 weeks to deliver.

    Great article! Sometimes it can be easy to forget how prominent a feature your cabinetry is all around your home. It’s great to reexamine exactly what you’ve got and what style you’re going for. Thanks for the rundown on the differences between stock and custom too!
