Designing your kitchen can be fun and exciting when you have a kitchen designer on your team. Watching your ideas and vision come to life is rewarding!

When you include custom cabinets as part of your kitchen renovation or remodel, your kitchen will have a modern, contemporary, and personalized look.

Your home should be where you feel comfortable, peaceful, and confident. Adding your individuality and style to your kitchen will give you that vibe.

A kitchen should be a place where families and friends can share food, laughs, and make memories. It’s much easier to have these experiences with your loved ones in a clean, functional, and enjoyable environment.

Investing in a customized kitchen and custom cabinets can even help your house sell one day, making it a wise investment. Most buyers look for homes with customizations that will help their houses stand out.

What types of cabinets are available?

There are three types of cabinets: custom cabinets, semi-custom cabinets, and stock cabinets.

The cabinets you choose for your kitchen can make or break the look you’re trying to achieve, as cabinets are often a room’s focal point.

Custom cabinets

Custom cabinets are made to fit your unique personality, lifestyle, storage needs, preferences, and uniquely shaped kitchen.

If your kitchen is shaped abnormally, or you need extra tall cabinetry, custom cabinets can meet your expectations.

Stock cabinets

Stock cabinets are premade and ready to ship when ordered.

You will not have the option to customize stock cabinets, as they are premanufactured and based on standard cabinet sizes.

Semi-custom cabinets

Semi-custom cabinets are similar to stock cabinets, except that you can customize some elements of them.

Since you can customize things like the size of drawers or change the dimensions, they will take slightly longer to receive than stock cabinets.

If you have a standard kitchen and standard-sized cabinets that will do the job, these could be an acceptable choice.

Benefits of custom cabinets

There are various advantages to having custom cabinets built for your kitchen. You have endless options for what type of wood, material, style, hardware, and finish you want.

Your cabinets can be made smaller or larger than stock cabinets and help you maximize your space. You may wish for your cabinets to extend to the ceiling, giving you as much storage space as possible.

The more storage you have in your kitchen, the more organized your kitchen will be, and the more places you have to hide your cookware and appliances.

A sleek, clean, clutter-free kitchen gives it a minimalist and modern look.

Custom cabinets will also give your kitchen a personalized look, allowing you to express your style and taste.

When you purchase stock cabinets, you have no say in what type of material they are made of, and since they are mass-produced, they’re likely not environmentally friendly.

With custom cabinets, you can choose non-toxic renewable sources that are better for the environment and your health.

Finally, custom cabinets are made of high-quality materials meaning they will be more durable and last longer.

So, while you may initially pay more to have custom cabinets built, you will save yourself money in the long run by not having to repair or fix them as quickly.

Why hire a kitchen designer to select and design your custom cabinets

If you want beautiful, functional, personalized cabinets, you will need to hire a kitchen designer.

A kitchen designer’s expertise and a keen eye can ensure your cabinets are built to your expectations while helping you stick to your budget.

Kitchen designers are also familiar with products, materials, designs, and layouts that will help them visualize your ideas and turn them into reality.

It’s easy to make mistakes when you’re inexperienced, which is why many people opt for designers when they renovate their kitchens.

Even the most minor mistake can cost you time, peace of mind, and money. Your kitchen designer can ensure that your cabinets are made correctly, will fit in even the most unusual spaces, and are made of only the best materials and hardware.

Adding a designer to your team is essential for a stress-free kitchen remodel.

On top of helping you select and design your cabinets, a kitchen designer can act as a team leader and communicate with other contractors to ensure your remodel is done quickly and correctly.
