Differences Between Semi-Custom And Custom Cabinets

Differences Between Semi-Custom And Custom Cabinets

Kitchens are the heart of every house, it is where we spend a large amount of our time when we are home, family meals and people tend to congregate in the kitchen just to chat or grab a snack. So, if your kitchen is a little dated and you want to modernize and upgrade, it’s a good idea that will add value to your property.

Buying custom cabinets maybe a little costly but is a good investment. Custom made kitchens are always crafted from the very best quality wood. The kitchen is designed, there is no pre-existing blueprint, which means each one is completely unique. You can make your kitchen exactly as you want, size, shape, wood, Custom made kitchens last up to 50 years with proper care. You can choose any style you like or even mix styles, traditional, retro, modern. Because a custom made kitchen is made specifically for your kitchen space, the cabinet makers will make the custom cabinets to fit the dimensions exactly, so there’s no problem of awkward spaces or wasted space.

If you have a tight budget you can also consider semi-custom cabinetry. These are pre-made cabinets that can be customized by the type of wood used, finishes and dimensions.

These cabinets are cheaper and there are many different options for size and style. However, there are only a limited number of types of wood that can be used. The kitchen is not actually designed, there is already a pre-existing style that you customize. All the customization and optional extras are charged for, so in fact, the semi-custom kitchens are sometimes as expensive, if not more expensive, than a bespoke custom kitchen.

Custom Cabinet Finishes

Custom Cabinet Finishes

Cabinet finishes are the very last step in cabinetry aesthetics, applying laminate or color to the custom cabinets. The application’s final appearance may vary, subject to your cabinets’ material, including your custom closets. Choices include:

1. Waterborne Finish

Manufacturers that are eco-friendly, provide a waterborne ultra-violet (UV) finish. In most of our RTA and stock cabinets, you will encounter this finish. This product is manufactured to provide high-performance cabinets.

The waterborne finish, popular among cabinet makers in Pompano Beach, is low in volatile organic compounds (VOCs), formaldehyde-hazard-free, satisfies strict performance standards and regulations, and is scratch-resistant. 

2. Stained Cabinets

To change the color, protect cabinets from damage, or enhance the grain, the stain is applied to wood. For instance, use colors like pecan, oak, or walnut and resemble natural wood. To create an alternative end aesthetic, cabinets and custom furniture can be stained below another finishing technique.

3. Glazed Cabinets

Frequently utilized by cabinets makers when applying faux-finishes, a glazed cabinet finish can modify the texture and color of custom cabinetry. To emphasize the wood details, a glazed finish may be applied on top of the stain or paint. Our homeowners can’t get enough of this finish type.

Should The Color of Kitchen Cabinets Be Lighter Or Darker Than Your Wall Paint? 

Should The Color of Kitchen Cabinets Be Lighter Or Darker Than Your Wall Paint? 

Selecting painting colors for your home is the highlight for homeowners. Whether colors for your custom kitchen vanity or custom furniture this choice is important. Cabinet makers say choosing the right colors of cabinets when choosing a modern design does more than just add an aesthetic touch but it also brightens up the space and makes it stand out. One common question is should I go with light or dark colors? Professionals at Mebel Cabinets say you should select colors that give your kitchen a level of warmth, compliment the look and feel, and add to the overall vision. When making the decision for light vs. dark custom cabinetry experts give a few points to think about:

Lighter colors provide an open luxurious feel, choosing darker colors provide a cinematic.

For smaller kitchens agents making custom cabinets say it’s better to use lighter colors. This becomes more evident when you factor in natural lighting. Custom cabinets makers choose white and off-white cabinets to give your kitchen a fuller look and make it seem bigger.

On the other side, a bigger space that lets in enough sunlight is best for darker color cabinets.

When you have a kitchen wall displaying a red texture or brick exposure, white and lighter colors add magnificent contrast.

Using custom kitchen cabinets in lighter kitchens gives you a sophisticated look but if you prefer lacquer looks we recommend mixing both light and dark hues with wooden cabinets because this still feels warm while preserving the elegance and sophistication you want.

One disadvantage of lighter shades is that it’s hard to clean stains plus wear and tear affect these cabinets more easily. For this case when you go with a lighter look make sure to clean your cabinet regularly.

Darker colors are usually seen in luxurious homes so if you have ample space then choosing dark colors may be a good option.

Overall lighter cabinetry lets you mix different colors and accents together while maintaining simplicity.

Cabinet Makers: Why You Should Work With Them

Cabinet Makers: Why You Should Work With Them

There are a few things you should know about custom cabinets from custom cabinet makers if you’re redesigning your entire kitchen or just obtaining custom kitchen cabinets. Cooking is a selfless act, and we owe it to ourselves to do it right.

Custom Cabinets

It is possible to have custom kitchen cabinets constructed just for your house in the style you like. When it comes to handles and knobs, you get to pick the materials and choose the color, stain, or finish.

Ordinary cabinets will not fit your house because they are mass-produced. Neither your house nor the cabinets in it should conform to any kind of standard. The notion that custom cabinetry items are more expensive ignores a wide range of facts.

Quality Materials

They’ll endure a lifetime since custom cabinets are so well-made in Pompano Beach. We only use the finest materials. Special drawers and concealed storage places, as well as sophisticated wine racks, can be added to make them uniquely yours.

You have a greater say in the final look and feel of the cabinets because you get to pick the style, color, and materials. Additionally, you have the option of switching to cabinets made of a more environmentally friendly material if you want. Custom cabinets are made in order to meet your exacting specifications for the layout of your kitchen. You will be hard-pressed to find standard cabinets that match the rest of the remodeled space’s style and functionality when renovating.

When Is It Time For Kitchen Cabinet Replacement?

When is it time for kitchen cabinet replacement?

If you are thinking about renovating your kitchen, then you are of course looking into what you can do with your kitchen cabinets – and you might be considering custom cabinetry to really bring that renovation to the next level. However, do you need to replace your cabinets?

There is a chance that you will be able to reface the old cabinets, but not always, and if you are looking for custom kitchen cabinets it is likely you will need to start from scratch. Our team of expert cabinet makers can help you understand your options, but to help you get started with the decision, here are the main signs that you need to replace kitchen cabinets:

You want to totally change the layout for your new custom kitchen

If you are going to change the whole layout of your kitchen you will need to install new custom cabinets. However, this isn’t a bad thing, you can finally get the exact layout, style, and functionality that you want for your space!

Your cabinets are damaged beyond repair

There are many things that can cause irreparable damage to cabinets such as

  • Age
  • Mold
  • Rodents
  • Water damage

If your cabinets are warped, blackened, appear (or even just smell) damp or moldy, are falling apart or the drawers and doors do not close properly, then you will likely need cabinets makers to start from scratch and replace them.

The size/functionality is just not working for you

Maybe you want to keep the general layout of your kitchen the same but the organization and sizing of the cabinets are frustrating and don’t suit your needs. When this happens, you can get custom made kitchen cabinets that work better for you and your kitchen.

The original cabinets are cheap

Cheaply made cabinets should be replaced, period. First off, it doesn’t make sense to spend money refacing poorly made cabinets just to have to replace them later. Also, quality custom cabinets will last longer and will increase the value of your home, as well as improve the functionality and overall look of your custom kitchen.
