Custom vs. Prefabricated Cabinetry

Is your renovation plan finally moving towards the “heart of your house (your kitchen)?” Are you confused about whether you should have custom or prefabricated cabinetry? Well, cabinetry takes ample space in a kitchen. So, choosing cabinets is a big deal whether it’s a renovation or if you’re simply making a few home interior changes. What would you choose for your kitchen cabinetry?


Custom Cabinets

Custom cabinets give you the liberty to bring your idea to life. So, if your imagination lets you create custom cabinetry that compliments your kitchen’s theme, it is the way to go. Many local shops offer custom cabinetries, or you may also get custom cabinets made from a reputable company (they may charge heftily!).

Getting custom cabinets entails producing, assembling, and fixing all the elements required for a cabinet, including frames, drawers, doors, and boxes.

Features of Custom Cabinets

With custom cabinets, there are no specific limits on how you want your cabinetry to look. From the box of a cabinet to the final finish of the entire cabinetry of your kitchen, you can choose the color, material, style, etc., of your choice. 

You can choose any size and shape of the custom cabinets. You can order it, get it produced, and have it fixed inside the empty spaces of your kitchen anytime.

Custom cabinetries require job production, which in simple words is a necessity of the skills, time, and energy of an expert craftsman. Hence, fine quality is guaranteed!

Moreover, you can go for durable wood materials to maintain the durability of your kitchen cabinetry. 

Drawbacks of Custom Cabinets

Due to the added time, material, and specific instructions, custom cabinets may incur higher costs than other types of cabinetry. 

Since the cabinets are custom-made, the repairs may be expensive due to the need for specific components.

Due to specifications, custom cabinetry can take a lot of time, from choosing the material, shape, and size to production and installation in your kitchen.

Prefabricated Cabinets

Manufacturers produce prefabricated cabinets or stock cabinets in batches with standard rules, measurements, and limited styles. What’s more, stock / prefabricated cabinets are always available for purchase in large quantities.

Features of Prefabricated Cabinets

As their production occurs in batches, manufacturers tend to benefit from economies of scale. Thus, the end-user (you) pays less price.

Stock cabinets are ready-made and enable swift installations.

Manufacturers produce an extensive range of styles in their custom cabinets. Therefore, you can still opt for your favorite wood type and cabinetry style.

Drawbacks of Prefabricated Cabinets

Unlike custom cabinetry, prefabricated cabinets do not accommodate your specifications of shapes, sizes, or styles. Hence, you go with industry-standard cabinets.

Due to standard material compositions, prefabricated cabinets may not be as durable as your chosen wood-type custom cabinets.
