Advantages of Custom-Made Cabinets
Custom Kitchen CabinetsThe number one element of a kitchen that sets the tone and style are kitchen cabinets. Cabinets give make the first impression of your kitchen. Prefabricated cabinets may cost less, but custom cabinets are a better value. You can get the best solution for your kitchen by retaining the services of both a kitchen designer and a cabinet maker, although sometimes, as in the case of The Viking Craftsman, they may be one and the same person.Advantages of Custom-Made Cabinets
Custom cabinets are durable. They are a better quality construction than those made in a factory.
Custom cabinets are better because they are made from plywood rather than the particle board of mass-produced cabinets. The corner braces are wood glue blocks, instead of the stapled plastic corners of assembly line cabinets. The component parts are connected with dowel, dovetail, or mortise-and-tenon joints, instead of the cheaper connection methods of glue, nails, or screws. The drawer slides are implemented with a hidden undermount, as opposed to side slide brackets.All of these techniques produces a sturdier cabinet that will last for years and years.
Custom cabinets can be made from locally-sourced wood. Using local wood lessens the impact on the environment by such factors as transportation.Using local wood also supports and even promotes local economies.
Unusual kitchen layouts or floor plans can be difficult to accommodate with stock cabinets. What usually happens in that case is that you have wall space left over. With custom cabinets, you can take maximum advantage of the space you have available by sizing the cabinetry to fit. You won't have any awkward, possibly useless, spaces between your cabinets.
You can customize the cabinets to suit your particular needs or preferences. You can specify the heights of counters and cabinets to correspond to the height of the person who does most of the cooking. You can also implement the features that make sense for the way you cook. For example, custom kitchen cabinets can include pull-out cutting boards, island cabinets, a wine rack, spice cabinet, and trash drawer.
