10 Benefits of Custom Cabinets

10 Benefits of Custom Cabinets

  Ready-made cabinetry can be fine, but there are limited options for styles, colors and designs. These cabinets can be a good option if you are looking for something out of the box. However, there are times when ready-made cabinetry is not going to work or look right with your decor. Custom cabinetry is not just useful for hiding clutter; there are many other benefits of having custom cabinetry. Here just a few of the amazing benefits of having custom cabinetry built.   

1. Custom Cabinetry Is Built to Last

  This is not to say that ready-made cabinets do not last, but custom cabinetry is built to handle more daily use and last longer. This is because you make all the decisions about how the cabinets are built, so you pick everything including the wood, design, and color.

2. It is a Valuable Investment

 Custom cabinetry can be very expensive, especially when you compare it to ready-made cabinets that are found in the store. This is one of the most common reasons why people avoid having custom cabinetry made for them. However, the benefits of having cabinets made for your home or business make them worth the extra cost. Selecting your own materials means that you can pick the ones that are going to stand up to daily use for years. This means that you do not need to replace your cabinets every few years, which can save you a lot of money in the long run. 

3. More Choices

 We have mentioned this above, but it is one of the main reasons that more people are having custom furniture built. You have the choice of picking the materials that are used and the design of the finished piece. Some custom cabinets will be made from multiple woods to improve the durability of the shelving. The color choices that are available can make it easier to have cabinets that work in your kitchen or office. 

4. Everything You Need

 When you have custom cabinets made, they are made for your current needs and what your needs could be in the future. You may not be thinking of what your future needs are when you are buying premade cabinets. With custom cabinets, you will be asked what your needs are now and what you may need in the future. So, having custom cabinetry built can save you time because you do not need to continually add new cabinets to your storage area every few years. 

5. No Limits to Design Options

 When you look at premade cabinetry, you may find that there are not a lot of options. Even lines that have a good amount of options do not have the same amount of choices that you have with custom cabinetry. Custom cabinetry has no limits to the number of designs you can create, which means that is rare to see the same custom cabinets in other homes or businesses. 

 6. No Wasted Space

  Space is very expensive, and premade cabinets are not built to fit every space perfectly. They are made to fit most kitchen layouts, but you may not have a standard layout or are installing cabinets in other rooms. Custom cabinets can be up to 102 inches tall and as wide as you want.   Before these cabinets are made, the area is measured to make sure that the cabinets will fit and the layout will work in the space. There is no need to worry about the cabinets not fitting into a certain space because they are built specifically for that space. 

7. Modifications

  Your cabinets do not need to be cookie cutter. There hundreds of alterations that you can make to custom cabinets to make them work better for your lifestyle and aesthetics. If there is something special that you need from your cabinets, you can have them modified to make them work perfectly for you.    The better the materials that are used to make custom cabinetry means that you can also make additional adjustments after the cabinets are installed. This is great, especially if the cabinets are in an office or a busy kitchen. You can also have them made to have removable pieces, so you can easily make changes to your cabinets when you need to. 

8. Environmentally Friendly

  Wood does not only look good, but it is also non-toxic, recyclable, renewable, and biodegradable. Buying premade cabinets means that you do not have the option of picking where the wood comes from. Some companies will use press board to make cabinet shelves to cut down on costs. This affects the cabinet’s durability and could mean that you need to replace your cabinetry every few years.    Custom cabinetry can be made from salvaged, reclaimed or reused wood. This saves the builders from having to buy and use new wood. There are other materials that are environmental friendly that you can have cabinetry made from, which include recycled plastics and paper. There are also eco-friendly paints and stains that you can use to reduce your footprint. 

9. Place for Everything

  Think about all the items that you have in your kitchen or office. It is hard to know until you are taking all the items out and trying to fit them into new cabinets. This makes it hard to know how much space that you really need, and you may not get the right amount of storage space with premade cabinets.    Custom cabinets are designed with you and your items in mind. There could be thousands of items that you have and need to store. Custom cabinets can be made to hide items when they are not in use, but make it easy to get them out when an item is needed. This can lower the amount of countertop space that is taken up with your kitchen gadgets and appliances.

10. Better Shelving Design

  Shelving is important when you are using cabinets, but most people do not think about it when they are buying cabinets. Most times, it is all about the outside design until something does not fit. Custom cabinets are made with the shelving designs that you need.    Custom furniture and cabinets offer many benefits for both home and business owners. Instead of having to deal with cabinets that are not made to work for you, custom cabinets are designed specifically for you and your needs.
