Why Do Homeowners Need Custom Cabinets?

Homeowners order custom cabinets rather than off-the-shelf cabinets for many reasons. Some are built to match other kitchen or bathroom design elements during a home remodel, perhaps using unusual types of wood for unique aesthetic effects. Others need custom cabinets to accommodate aging or disability and may opt for cabinets that are easier to use from a wheelchair.

What Materials are Best for Custom Cabinets?

Cherry, oak, poplar, mahogany, and hickory are popular hardwoods for cabinets. Hardwoods are sturdy building materials but tend to cost slightly more. Engineered wood, which consists of wood particles held together with binding materials and pressed into board shape, costs less than hardwood and is a common material for building cabinets.

How Much Does It Cost to Build and Install Custom Cabinets?

Custom cabinets and custom cabinet installation cost more than off-the-shelf cabinetry. The cost depends on kitchen size and cabinet materials, but they can range from $10,000 to $30,000 and more.

How Long Does It Take to Build and Install Custom Cabinets?

Homeowners typically allow three to four months for the construction of custom cabinets and a few days for the installation of the cabinetry. The Lake Norman Cabinet Company can do it quicker, often in only three or four weeks so that your bathroom or kitchen remodel is as fast and easy as possible.

What are Common Styles of Custom Cabinets?

Homeowners often opt for traditional cabinets or, for a more rustic look, might select a Shaker design. Modern, sleek designs are also popular. Glass-front cabinetry allows the homeowner to show off glassware, porcelain, or other decorative objects.

Do Custom Cabinets Add to Home Resale Value?

Attractive and distinctive kitchen cabinetry can add to your home’s value. The kitchen is important to daily life and is often one of the first things prospective buyers see when touring the home. On average, homeowners can expect to recoup most of the cost of the remodel. Remodeling cabinets in a style that is currently popular can help you to attract trendy buyers.

How Can I Make Sure My Custom Cabinets Last a Long Time?

You can keep your cabinets looking new longer by using baking soda and gentle cleansers to clean them rather than harsh chemicals. Do not apply commercial stains on the cabinets, as these can damage the wood. Keep the cabinets dry and free of humidity. Repainting or refinishing existing cabinets is another cost-effective way to freshen up their appearance of your kitchen or bathroom.
