If you are beginning to look at cabinet options for your remodelling or kitchen design project, you will learn of three basic types of cabinetry: stock, semi-custom, and custom kitchen cabinets.

To help you decide which type of cabinets are best for your project, Custom Roll-Out Drawers created this quick guide to familiarize you with each type. Before you read on, it is important to know that the terms do not refer to the quality of the cabinets, but rather the methods used to produce the kitchen cabinets.

What are stock cabinets?

Stock cabinets are pre-manufactured and readymade to use. One of the advantages of stock cabinets is that they provide a fast and easy solution to keep your project on time and on budget. Not only are they affordable, but they are also ready to ship when ordered with a quick delivery time.

While stock kitchen cabinets come in a variety of styles, colours, and finishes to bring your vision to life, you usually have a limited selection to choose from.

What are semi-custom cabinets?

Semi-custom cabinets are stock cabinets with extra options to allow for a more personalized look for your kitchen project. With more styles, features, and options to choose from than stock kitchen cabinets, semi-custom cabinets are built to order and are typically delivered within four to eight weeks.

When you choose semi-custom kitchen cabinets, you have a wide range of options available including specialty finishing techniques, stains, and paints as well as resizing drawers and cabinet depth. Semi-custom cabinets also come with feature options such as organization inserts, roll-out shelves, and door racks.

What are custom cabinets?

Custom kitchen cabinets are completely built to your specifications. A skilled craftsman can meet any need to create a truly tailored design that is unique to your kitchen. The options are endless when it comes to custom kitchen cabinets.

Choose from a wide range of wood types, finishing options, modifications, and more to make brand new custom pieces that are made-to-order.

For those cabinets that are in good structural condition consider Cabinet Refacing: new doors and drawer fronts custom made to fit existing cabinetry. This allows a fresh modern look without demolishing the entire kitchen.
