It might be obvious that you need new kitchen or bathroom cabinets. While there are clear differences between job-built cabinet finishes and manufactured cabinet finishes, the most notable is a higher quality with catalyzed finishes on custom cabinetry. But are custom cabinets in Jackson, MS always made using better materials and finishes?
Good reasons to choose custom made cabinets
When remodeling your bathroom, kitchen or laundry room, it’s important to take your time selecting the perfect new cabinets. You have options: you can either choose cabinets that are custom created or cabinets from a factory. The following is a list of some of the reasons to favor hand-crafted custom cabinetry:
- Long-lasting: Custom or handmade cabinets crafted in a professional wood shop remain in the hands of an expert from start to finish. Every little detail is perfected, the wood trimmed and pieced together by the woodworker to ensure quality. Custom cabinets are long-lasting because they are made using solid wood, which can handle years of wear and tear, while the standard for stock cabinets is particleboard.
- Personalized for you: Sure, you might find stock cabinets you love. Purchase them right off the store shelf and install them where you want them. The downside is that you won’t get the same kind of personalized touch you get from custom-designed cabinetry. The best cabinet makers will ask for your input on design to ensure your new cabinets fit perfectly into the look and style of your home.
- Unique: A popular style of stock cabinet will fly off the shelves. The problem with buying stock is that now there’s a greater chance that someone you know has installed the exact same cabinets in their kitchen or bathrooms. In addition to having the same cabinets, they may have chosen the same exact kitchen design. This won’t happen with custom cabinetry. Your cabinets will be high quality, original and unique.
- Boost home value: The higher the quality of home construction materials, the more your home is worth. Resale value increases with home improvements, and particularly with projects that are custom designed and completed by a professional.
Cabinet materials and finishes
Top-quality kitchen and bathroom cabinets will look like the great furniture they are. They are made with the best materials and care and have a quality finish. Typically, custom cabinets are built using much better, higher quality materials than factory cabinets. Solid wood tends to last longer than the cheaper materials found in stock cabinet manufacturing factories.
For the most part, stock cabinets are made of cheap wood or particleboard, and instead of being finished with a proper paint or stain, they are fitted with veneer that only mimics wood grain. Real wood planks are handpicked by the cabinetmaker, but the client can decide which color and natural design they want. Depending on the type of wood, custom cabinets are either stained or painted as a finish. Some shops even use a catalyzed varnish as the finishing topcoat on their custom cabinetry.
