Lets be honest here. All kitchen cabinets serve the same purpose, and when it comes to functionality, they tend to work similarly as well. Selecting the right kitchen cabinets for your home can be compared to buying a car. Are you looking at picking up a new Prius, or are you looking at that new Range Rover? While they will both get you from point A to point B, they each do so in different fashions.

Take a long look at your current kitchen set up and determine exactly how you want your cabinets to look and function. How much are you willing to spend on these features? Maybe you would prefer to spend that money elsewhere to help customize other aspects of their kitchen.

Understanding Basic Cabinet Types

When selecting your cabinets you will have the option to choose between in-stock, semi-custom and custom cabinets. In-stock kitchen cabinets are obviously prefabricated and the the lowest priced of the group. This variety comes in a wide range of styles and options, and they also have been designed so that they fit most sizes of kitchens.

Semi-Custom kitchen cabinets can be selected from pre-existing styles, but the cabinets themselves are build offsite. These option do come with more customizable features, as the sizes, materials and hardware can often be altered to create a more customized kitchen. That being said, they do often come with a higher price tag given the added features. These do, however, take multiple weeks to be created, so you will have to be patient when selecting this option.

Those designing a custom kitchen will likely want to go with custom kitchen cabinets. From start to finish, you have 100% control of what the finished product will look like. Custom kitchen cabinet designers will be able to view your kitchen and make professional suggestions as to which options might best match the style of your home.
