If you’re considering a renovation, you’ve probably been looking at a lot of pictures online for inspiration and, chances are, you’ve noticed that almost all of the really beautiful rooms have one thing in common: custom cabinetry. But what exactly is custom cabinetry, and why should you choose it for your next project? Let’s take a look.

What Is Custom Cabinetry?

Custom cabinetry are cabinets that are made-to-order according to your style preference and the specific dimensions and needs of your space. Having your cabinetry custom built ensures that they will fit perfectly into the room, and you’ll be able to choose exactly the right style, finish, and hardware to match your vision. Whether you’re looking for cabinets for your kitchen, bathroom, library, laundry room, garage, or somewhere else, keep reading for reasons why you should consider it.

Why Choose Custom Cabinetry?

There are several reasons why you might choose custom cabinetry over other options. If you have a specific vision for your space and you want to make sure it’s executed perfectly, then it is the best option. This is also a great choice if you’re not satisfied with the selection of pre-made or semi-custom cabinets on the market.

Another reason to choose custom cabinets is if you have an oddly-shaped kitchen. Off-the-shelf cabinets are made in standard sizes, so they might not fit properly in your space. Custom cabinets can be made in whatever size you need, so they’ll fit perfectly and make the most use of your available space.

Let’s get into specifics.

Custom cabinetry will work with your appliances, so you don’t have to worry about gaps, and you can add appliance paneling to seamlessly blend your appliances in with your cabinets.

The most obvious reason to choose custom cabinetry is that it allows you to get exactly what you want. At Sutcliffe Kitchens, we can adjust your cabinetry to one-sixteenth of an inch so that they fit perfectly.

Colours are also a part of the customization of your cabinetry. We can colour-match your cabinets to any Benjamin Moore or almost any colour swatch on the market.

If you have specific ideas about how you want your space to look, working with a professional to create custom cabinets is the best way to achieve that vision. There are no limits on what you can do.

Better Quality

When you go the custom route, you’re also choosing better quality materials and construction methods. If you buy cabinets from a big box store, chances are they’re mass-produced using lower quality materials in order to keep costs down. When you work with a professional cabinetmaker, they’ll use high-quality materials and apply careful and skilled construction methods to create cabinets that will last for decades to come.

Increased Value

Investing in custom cabinetry can also increase the value of your home. This is especially true if you’re working with an experienced cabinet maker who uses high-quality materials; potential buyers will be willing to pay more for a home that already has these types of high-end features installed.
