Whatever size of home you have, Lake Stevens custom cabinets are always a great idea. You get to determine your cabinet size, the paint to use, and where to place them, which allows you to personalize your home even more. To help you choose, here are the types of cabinets available in the market.
Stock cabinets – These are the cabinets that come pre-installed in your home or delivered to you, but these are made according to industry standards, not your standards. Their styles and measurements are all predetermined, and they are already built and ready to be installed. These cabinets are usually made from standard cabinet material, and they have no design at all.
Semi-custom cabinets – These kinds of cabinets are made after you’ve placed an order. They still follow industry standards of sizes, finishes, and styles but allow your input for basic customization. They retain the full functionality of standard stock cabinets, complete with your flair for specifics.
Full custom cabinets – Custom cabinets are built according to your standards. Whatever size, placement, paint color, finish, and other details you opt to have, the cabinet-maker will do for you. However, unlike stock cabinets and semi-custom cabinets, custom cabinets take much longer to make, usually more expensive.
There are several types of wood that cabinet-makers use to create all kinds of cabinets. Here are a few examples.
Hardwood – Stock cabinets and semi-custom cabinets are mostly hardwood since it is the easiest to procure. The common types of hardwood are oak, meranti, Teak, Sapele, and iroko, and they are more durable and resilient than most kinds of wood.
Plywood – This is another example of solid wood for cabinets. It’s usually laminated and glued.
Cabinet door overlays determine how well your cabinet doors will adhere to the cabinet frames. Here are a few types of cabinet door overlays.
Custom cabinets allow you to choose your door design, and cabinet-makers offer a few options which you can customize even further. Here are a few examples.
Suppose you’ve decided against stock cabinets and semi-custom cabinets and have chosen your preferred material, door overlay, and door design. In that case, it’s not time to select your paint color and finishes. Here are a few options of cabinet finishes which you can choose from.
After the cabinet has been created, it’s now time to choose whether to install pull-out racks or have stationary shelves. You can also pick out your hinge type and your cabinet handle, and other similar accessories.
