Choosing The Look For The Biggest Part Of A Kitchen

“What’s next on the list?” asks Melissa.

John looks down at the piece of paper between his arms. “After kitchen remodeling cost, the next on our remodeling checklist is kitchen cabinets. We need to first look at the different types of cabinets.”

Melissa nods. “Perfect. We should also look up the best type of kitchen cabinet. We can use it as a measurement for the ones we want. Unless what we want is the best.”

“Then let’s get to Googling,” says John. “Then we can get this kitchen planning done and start on the actual building.” Jessica smiles as they get to digging.

The 3 Different Types Of Cabinets

The 3 types of cabinets are stock, semi-custom, and custom. A type is a particular group or kind of something. This points to the 3 types listed here. Styles of cabinets would be a distinct appearance such as recessed panel, raised panel, slab, and more.

Stock Cabinets

Stock cabinets are the most basic type of cabinet.

You have a limited number of styles, designs, colors, and sizes to use. This means they can only really work in standard kitchens. They’re also not as durable. They can also be made out of a cheaper material than hardwood.

But, all of this makes them quicker and easier to replace than the other cabinet types. It also makes them the cheapest cabinet type.

Semi-Custom Cabinets

Semi-custom cabinets are how you can get a more personal, unique look for your kitchen without breaking the bank.

They have more variety when it comes to style, design, color, and size. They’re less expensive than fully-customized cabinets. You can also choose better materials.

But, they’re pricier than stock cabinets and don’t have as many choices as custom.

Custom Cabinets

You can get the exact look you want and it won’t be in any other home.

With custom cabinets, the sky is basically the limit when it comes to style, design, color, size, and even material. This means they can fit into any kitchen design and look better for longer.

But, you’ll have to pay more for this personalization and durability. Installation times are also longer because they’re being made custom.

Custom vs Semi-Custom Cabinets

The main differences are:

Cost. Custom cabinets tend to cost more because you can fully customize them. This means they take more time and skilled labor to build.

Choices. You have more choices when it comes to custom cabinets involving style, color, size, and more.
