What’s in a Cabinet? Choosing New Cabinets

October 30, 2020

If you’ve recently obtained a multifamily property but it isn’t exactly want you want, it may be time for a renovation. One renovation that is a favorite spot for renters is in the kitchen or the bathroom. Cabinets are big focal point in the kitchen and a great place to start! There are three types of cabinets: stock, semi-custom and fully custom. We’ve listed all the differences between these cabinet types and the advantages of each. 


Stock cabinets are usually considered a fast and easy way to improve a kitchen by refreshing the look. Due to the cabinets being made in common sizes, the ranges for door styles, colors and finishes are a bit limited. 


Semi-custom cabinets have more availability when it comes to styles and features. This availability gives for creating more personalized looks for the kitchen and at less of an expense compared to fully custom cabinets. Semi-custom cabinets are typically delivered within four to eight weeks after ordering. 


Fully custom kitchen cabinets are the options with the biggest range of choices. From wood types, finishing options, construction platforms and other general modifications. Of course any expert and professional in the world of custom cabinet building will be able to meet any need you request. This is why many enjoy looking for cabinetry that is fully custom since it is exactly what one is looking for.
