I dreamed of eventually investing in good-looking cabinets. The more I searched online, the more I began realizing that my best option would be to purchase custom cabinets. They are an essential part of a home. I wanted my home to have character and personality. I wanted my kitchen to have a unique look. I wanted the woods and finishes to match other parts of my home as well. I also wanted the highest quality of materials.
I found beautiful examples of custom made filing cabinets as well as diningroom cabinets to house my family’s china. The more I searched for custom cabinets, the more I realized I was making the right choice. Another thing, those old kitchen cabinets in my home were not even a standard size. They didn’t have common dimensions! I couldn’t go pre-fab if I wanted to!
With customized cabinets, I understand there is no wasting of space. In my book, they are worth the cost difference. Pre-fabricated cabinets usually include man-made wood products covered with vinyl. That’s not what I wanted for my home.
Another advantage of being customized is their height. Base cabinets are usually 36-inches in height. The cool thing is, they can also be customized to what you want to store in them. Think about it, if you have small appliances such as an electric blender, a coffee maker, etc. the cabinets can be designed to store them comfortably within certain heights and widths. Best of all, you are able to have lighting underneath the cabinets to give your room a cozy glow. I even saw beautiful glass doors on some cabinets.
I guess we can use our imagination as well as get the best use out of your space. When you purchase from a supply store, you get pre-built cabinets that are manufactured in an assembly line in pre-determined sizes.
