Custom Cabinetry or Stock Cabinets?

Creation Cabinetry specializes in designing and constructing custom cabinets, however, we also offer stock cabinets for people who aren’t in the market for custom work. A lot of the time, people will come into our showroom and ask which is the better option, a question that is completely dependent on the scope of the project at hand – it isn’t a question with a cut and dry answer.

For example, if you just purchased a house that is in need of a kitchen overhaul, custom cabinetry may be the better option. This route will ensure that the cabinets in your home will last a lifetime, as there truly is no match for cabinetry built and installed to perfectly fit the space. This is because we have full control over the construction process, which gives us the ability to alter the design on a case-by-case basis.

The overlooked history of kitchen cabinetry

Having an ability to build cabinets to precise specifications will leave homeowners with a kitchen or bathroom that is exactly what they want. That being said, there are situations where stock cabinetry is undoubtedly a better, safer choice.

For example, if you’re a landlord, manage an apartment complex, or are looking to quickly flip a house, stock cabinets may be the better option. The price point will likely be lower, so the level of stress involved with purchasing a new kitchen or bathroom won’t be nearly as high. As a landlord, there is always a level of risk involved in terms of property damage from tenants, so instead of having custom cabinetry installed in a rental unit, a stock kitchen may provide more bang for the buck.

At the end of the day, though, both options can provide customers with good value. Custom cabinetry, as stated earlier, will provide buyers with more control over the design process and is built with materials to withstand the test of time. Stock cabinetry, on the other hand, is great for rental units and people who are in the business of flipping homes, as the cabinets can be ordered, delivered, and installed in just a matter of weeks.

There really isn’t a correct answer when people ask “which is better, custom cabinetry or stock?”, as the answer is totally dependent on the job in question. Custom Cabinetry offers a better, personalized build, while box cabinetry supplies customers with a quick and easy solution at a relatively low cost. Basically, it depends on what you’re trying to accomplish with the room.
