Picking the Right Cabinet for Your Kitchen Remodel

Unsure of what kind of cabinet to choose when remodeling your kitchen? Selecting the type of cabinet sets the style for your kitchen. Whether you’re looking for a vintage touch or a clean, modern finish, here is a guide that can help you select the best cabinet for your dream kitchen.

Boxed

Boxed cabinets, otherwise known as ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinets, ship in parts and are designed to be assembled on-site – think of IKEA. They are also budget conscious and readily available; however, they are not as strong or durable as those assembled in factories and have limited designs, door styles, paints, and stains. Boxed cabinets often lack in quality compared to semi-custom or custom cabinetry, and do not provide flexibility with regard to design. If you are considering ordering and installing your own RTA cabinets, make sure you have a basic understanding of cabinet assembly and installation.

Semi-Custom

Unlike boxed cabinets, semi-custom cabinets provide more creativity with design, and customization with accessories, as well as a wide range of sizes and styles at a reasonable price. Semi-custom cabinets make efficient use of space and are typical of higher quality compared to boxed cabinetry. They also offer a large selection of doors, stains, and paints. These higher quality cabinets are made to each customer’s design specifications and require a longer lead time than picking boxed cabinets off a shelf.

Custom

Custom cabinets are completely made-to-order and offer full customization in terms of space and endless design possibilities. These one-of-a-kind cabinets are built to exact specifications to meet your desired look. Keep in mind complete access to customization means you can expect it to take longer to build and have a higher price tag. If you are considering a custom-built cabinet, plan your time and budget accordingly.
