A stock cabinet, a semi-custom cabinet, and a custom cabinet are all options. Pre-assembled stock cabinets can be found at various home improvement stores. Most stock cabinets come in a restricted range of colours and designs.
With semi-custom cabinets, you have more options when it comes to aesthetic and layout. If you’re willing to spend the most money, custom cabinets are the only choice that will meet your exact specifications.
Observe the Construction
The use of dovetail joinery in solid wood drawers, rather than stapled particleboard, full-extension drawer guides, rather than an integrated rail, and solid wood doors that surround a solid wood or plywood panel, rather than a veneered particleboard or a medium density fibreboard (MDF) panel are all characteristics of well-constructed cabinets.
Pick a Style
Framed or not? Doors and drawers fit into a box-and-face frame. Frameless cabinets, often known as European-style cabinets, do not require a face frame for the doors and drawers. More modern in design and easier access to the inside. The lack of a face frame reduces rigidity.
Better quality is compensated by thicker boxes (3/4-inch plywood instead of 1/2-inch particleboard). Full-overlay doors are ideal for framed cabinets in the European design. It covers the whole or most of the face.
Focus on Features of Kitchen Cabinet
Although a pull-out garbage can and a built-in charging station are convenient features, they can raise the price by more than 20% compared to the standard model. A lift cabinet, which features a shelf that lifts up and out on a spring-loaded mechanism, makes it simple to reach your stand mixer or food processor.
It’s a terrific feature for open-plan rooms, as soft-close fixtures make our ready-assembled units easier to use and quieter to operate. Upgrade drawers come with them as well, as they are included as standard.
In order to make things easier to access, hinges play an important role. All of our wall and base units have hinges that open to a 110-degree angle, but we now offer hinges that open to a larger 170-degree angle, making them ideal for households with many generations.
Upgrade your drawers’ functionality with our expandable options, which can be added to at any time. To maximise storage, they also make it easier to access those hard-to-reach objects that are located at the back.
Lot of space for supply
In our units, there is a 72mm gap for plumbing, gas, and electric supplies to be stored. This also makes it easier to install, especially if the walls are uneven or the space is confined.
Renovating old Cabinets
Consider repainting or refurbishing your current cabinets if they are square, plumb, and robust. For best results, remove all doors and drawers, use a degreasing agent, and then sand them down before applying a primer and many top coats. Refacing your cabinetry is another option.
Replace the doors and drawers, and apply new veneers to the face frames and ends of framed units to give them a more modern appearance. The cost of each cabinet is approximately $150. Pull-out shelves, lazy Susans, and other low-cost upgrades can be added to vintage cabinets to make them more user-friendly and functional. Last but not least, under-cabinet LED task lights are installed.
