Custom Kitchen Cabinets – What You Need To Know, Part 1


Choosing your cabinetry is a huge decision. It’s so permanent, isn’t it? So many choices too! Cabinetry is often one of the largest parts of the kitchen remodeling budget. Today’s post will be a simple explanation of custom cabinetry. Is it right for you? We’ll see.

The phrase “custom cabinets,” or “custom cabinetry” can be quite confusing. In fact, it means different things to different people! Do you want custom kitchen cabinets? Will they last longer? Will you pay much more? Is it worth the money? Here is some insight, and answers to common questions, to help make your decision making a little bit easier. These questions and more will be addressed in future posts. For now, let’s begin at the beginning with a description of custom cabinetry and what makes it appealing to some.

What is custom cabinetry?

Custom cabinetry can be defined as cabinets which are made to order, first and foremost. Whether by an individual at a shop or a factory, the cabinetry is not pre made, taken off a shelf, and delivered. They are not manufactured until an order is placed. This is one definition.

How else is custom cabinetry defined? 

Custom cabinetry can also be defined as cabinetry which allows customizations, such as changes in cabinet sizes, wood species, and finish. True custom factories will also produce anything that can be built! The designer draws it, and the factory builds it, end of story.   

Why should I consider custom cabinetry? 

You should consider custom cabinetry if:

In the course of the kitchen design process, you discover that you want specific, and customized, design solutions that may not be widely available in the less costly, more middle quality cabinet lines

  • you want to make the most of every fraction of an inch, engineering your cabinetry to fit as opposed to working with standard sizes
  • you’d like to create a cabinet finish that is yours alone, or you feel you need to tweak an existing standard finish sample to get the look you want
  • you appreciate, desire to own, and can justify the extra expense of a high quality product, the construction and useful features of which will be enjoyable to use and experience every day
  • you appreciate the more distinctive wood species and fiishes that come with custom cabinetry, you want something special and/or innovative
  • you will remain in this home for the very long term and desire a product that has top quality construction and a top quality finish


From my experience as a professional kitchen designer, any or all of these points noted above, are the compelling reasons why my clients choose custom cabinetry. My job, as I see it, is to point out the differences among the cabinet lines that I represent, and let the appropriate product “speak to” my clients and then we go from there.
