Why Should You Consider Using a Custom Cabinetmaker For Your New Home?

There’s more to custom home building than choosing the style and layout of your home. The difference also lies in the details, which is why cabinetry is such an important consideration in your new home’s look.

Custom cabinetry allows for complete flexibility in its design, compared to “off-the-shelf” cabinets from your local building supply store. With custom cabinetry, you’re not limited to standard sizes and materials. You can choose every detail to suit the rest of your home perfectly—including size, material, hardware, color, and stains. You can even co-ordinate your cabinets with hard-to-match trim or millwork, even if they use uncommon stains, finishes, or wood types.

When thinking cabinets, think past the usual suspects. Sure, custom cabinetry looks great in the kitchen, but what about storage cabinets in the hallway or mudroom, or custom shelving in your walk in closets? There are many ways to put a unique stamp on the details that make your home your own.

If you really want that something special or a focal point that will capture your guests’ attention, a custom cabinetmaker can provide it for you. Whether it’s a built-in entertainment unit or display case, a fireplace or tub surround, window seating, a wine display, a home office complete with shelving and a built-in desk, or a “secret door” that leads to a quiet space, a custom cabinetmaker is a fantastic resource.

Quality, custom products like these are built to last, so you won’t have to replace them as quickly or as often as the generic, “off-the-shelf” products. Talk to your builder, who will be able to recommend a custom cabinetmaker who can help bring your dream cabinetry—amongst other pieces for your home—to reality.
