Choosing between custom crafted cabinets and stock cabinetry can be overwhelming. However, learning the pros and cons of both can help you make a decision about which better suits your lifestyle and design.
- Custom Cabinets are built to last
- Each cabinet is handmade
- Ability to customize cabinetry down to the core
- Cabinets are built to fit any size, space and layout
- Custom Cabinets are typically more expensive
- Cabinets take longer to make due to customization and quality of design
- Stock cabinets are the least expensive
- Standard shapes and sizes
- Stock sizes for stock kitchens
- Limited selection of styles and woods
- Pre-manufactured cabinets
- Quick delivery time
- Stock cabinets cannot be customized
- Made on an assembly line
Both options can create a captivating kitchen but it’s important to look at the overall quality and design. Keeping in mind the differences of custom and stock cabinets, here are a few examples of what custom cabinetry can look like in your kitchen.
Custom Crafted Cabinets by Kountry Kraft
This kitchen features our custom crafted cabinets in an Inset/No Bead cabinetry style with the TW10 Hybrid door design. The picture on the left showcases our dovetail cabinet boxes that provide strong and secure joints that can withstand heavy use. Kountry Kraft goes above and beyond to add dovetailing into our boxes and drawers to ensure long lasting craftsmanship. Dovetailing is not a feature available in stock cabinets, as it takes a skilled artisan to craft this joint style.
Kountry Kraft created glass kitchen cabinets featuring shelves that are in line with the floating shelves on the adjacent wall. The pantry cabinet showcases by-pass doors to provide easy accessibility to the contents inside. A custom crafted cabinet was decided to include a wine and beer fridge as well.
Design by Pam Whittemore of Drum Hill Designs, LLC
The custom cabinets featured above are unique in color, style and design. Part of our textural cabinetry line, they create a realistic wood grain surface that compliment stainless steel kitchen appliances. When choosing custom crafted cabinetry, you have to ability to choose from a wider variety of finishes and wood choices. Whereas, stock cabinets are more linear and don’t have as many choices available.
Kountry Kraft allows you to completely customize your cabinetry as well as offer a lifetime warranty on all our products. We want your kitchen cabinets to look the best and withstand the test of time. Not sure if custom cabinetry is right for you? Visit our Devon Showroom or find one of our experienced dealers near you!
