Selecting Cabinetry For Your Home

As with most other products or services offered to consumers today, cabinetry choices are no different, How and what to select in meeting your specific needs can be intimidating and overpowering. The following is a brief guideline to help assist you in making your final decision. Working with the theory of good, better and best the following are categories and descriptions of what most kitchen showroom/dealers will have to offer.

"Good" is typically a stock line, Stock refers to the sizes, accessories, door styles, wood species and stain colors that are offered. Some stock lines offer upgrades, such as veneer (bladder) vs. solid doors, drawer boxes and glides, and cabinet box construction (particle board vs. plywood) at an up charge.

"Better" would be a semi custom product that will allow the designer to alter some standard dimensions for specific size requirements to utilize space more efficiently. This caliber of product offers more wood species and a greater selection of door style, stains and accessories. A higher grade of materials is typically used and greater attention is paid to finish details, such as graining characteristics and cross grain sanding.

A "full custom" line is usually everyone’s best, and typically the most expensive. Here, the sky is the limit in the designer’s ability to meet their client’s wishes. The cabinet box can be altered to specifications. Most wood species are available, along with the ability to design your own doors styles and customize stains. Accessories and door styles are almost limitless. Cabinetry can be framed or frameless and you may choose traditional overlay, full overlay or inset door styling. Versatility is the keyword with custom, including more durable construction materials and a higher standard of quality control that emphasizes the attention to the small details in the finishing process.
