Custom Cabinets Vs. Stock – The Pros and Cons

Custom Cabinets Vs. Stock – The Pros, Cons, Benefits

If you’re shopping for cabinets you may have come across a variety of options which can be confusing at first. One option you may have discovered is choosing between custom cabinets, and in stock styles, and maybe confused as to what would be the best fit for your home remodel. But there’s no need to fret! We are going to review the different attributes of these types of cabinets, and help you find what would be the best fit for you.

The Attributes of In-Stock Cabinets

One of the main benefits of in-stock cabinets is they can be installed very quickly. Since they are mass manufactured and ready to be used, they can be installed as soon as your crew is available to complete the project. However, because they were manufactured in a large scale, the options for wood type, design, and finish are often going to be limited.

You might look into the different hardware options for your cabinet in order to give your cabinets a more customized look. Another benefit to mass manufacturing is the price. The cost of production goes down at scale, so these saving will be passed onto you.

Ready To Assemble (RTA) Cabinets

RTA cabinets are ready to assemble and come in predetermined sizes and designs. Like many of the furniture available at Ikea, these come in flat boxes with the pieces and instructions on how to assemble them at home yourself. These are like in-stock cabinets because they are mass manufactured, but maybe easier to bring home if you have limited space in your vehicle. They can also scratch your itch if you have a DYI bug, but do not want to go through the labor-intensive process of cutting and finishing all the wood yourself!

Custom Cabinets

The greatest benefits of custom cabinets is the incredible variety you can achieve. In fact the only thing that can limit you is your imagination! You can hand pick the type of wood, the color, shape, and size. The cabinets will be built to your exact specifications.

Another advantage to custom cabinets is you can customize the shape of the cabinets. This means that you can build cabinets and storage spaces to fit uniquely into the spaces of your home. Many of our clients have used the custom cabinets like an accent to their home, being able to match the door colors throughout their different rooms to obtain a unifying theme throughout.

Which One Should I Choose?

The type of cabinet you should choose, whether it be RTA, stock, or custom, depends on your current circumstances and your future plans. If you are remodeling you home and you are planning to sell it soon, then you should look into what the current trends for cabinets and interior home designs. Having an in demand aesthetic theme in your home’s cabinets could potentially add value to your resale. If you can’t find stock cabinets that fit that criteria, and fit into the spaces of your home, than custom cabinets maybe a great option for you.

If you are looking for luxury, and you are a perfectionist with how your home and kitchen look, than custom cabinets are definitely the way to go. You can choose any number of finishes and styles, choose rare woods such as zebra wood and birdseye maple.

There are also many different types of doors you styles, such as inset construction, seeded glass doors, and eclipse mullions.  Being able to choose the color, style of doors, the internal storage arrangements, finish and shape/size of your cabinets, can satisfy even the most discerning of tastes.

If you need to complete the renovation quickly, or have a limited budget in which you are working with, than stock cabinetry maybe a better option for you. The speed of installation, and the cost savings could give you a fresh look you love, but still be obtainable on a budget.
