Benefits of custom cabinetry
ESTIMATED READING TIME: 3 MINUTES
You may think cabinets are just boxes with shelves, drawers and doors, designed to hide your clutter and provide storage for your ever-growing collection of kitchen gadgets, but they are a part of your kitchen’s appeal. Think of your cabinetry as furniture — it should be built to last and created with the homeowner in mind.
While cabinets from a big box store may be less expensive, the value just isn’t there. Custom cabinetry has benefits that you won’t get from generic pre-fabricated versions and when you consider the value in those features, you will understand why putting custom cabinetry in your kitchen will be the best decision you can make during your renovation.
Everything you need and nothing you don’t
The best part of investing in a custom kitchen renovation is the ability to work with your kitchen designer to choose the features that work best for you and your family. You don’t have to work within the confines of average dimensions. You can adjust countertop heights to meet your needs if that is important to you. Select unique cabinet and drawer combinations that make using your kitchen easy and efficient.
Once you have selected a kitchen designer and signed on the dotted line, allow her into your home to observe exactly how you use your kitchen, what you store in your cabinets and what you don’t use in your existing space. This will ensure your custom kitchen design gives you everything you need, and nothing you don’t.
If you are concerned about the impact of your custom kitchen remodel on the environment or even your local economy, custom-made cabinets can put your mind at ease. Embarking on a custom kitchen renovation in Niagara is easy when you work with a local designer.

And if you are concerned about the origin of the wood used for your cabinets, custom cabinetry is for you. You have a wider range of options when it comes to woods and finishing, so you can make sure you invest in cabinets made from local or domestic hardwoods, lessening your impact on the environment.
The sky’s the limit
When you look at generic stock cabinetry, you will be told about the “hundreds of combinations” that are available. But when you stop and think about what is truly available, you are still limited. Custom cabinets allow you to choose from a personally customized selection of wood, style, finish and hardware to make sure your kitchen is the beautiful and functional space you’ve been dreaming of.
Big box store cabinetry is made in batched in an assembly line, which means you may end up with finishes that match, but are not identical. When you order custom-made cabinetry specifically fr your space, it is made per order. That means everything will be hand selected and completed together giving you a uniform and cohesive look.
Cabinets built to last
We only work with skilled cabinet makers who take pride in their work and use quality materials — after all your custom cabinets should be a work of art. Your cabinets should be built to last featuring plywood instead of particle board, dovetailing or dowel instead of glue and hidden undermounts instead of side slide brackets. You may think those stock cabinets seem sturdy now, but your kitchen is one of the most used rooms in your home, and you don’t want to lose the money invested in your renovation because you chose discount prices over craftsmanship.
When you find the right custom kitchen designer in Niagara to work on your renovation, you will know that you are getting the quality, beauty and functionality you deserve in your kitchen. You will very quickly see the value custom cabinetry brings into your home.
