Things to Consider Before Purchasing Phoenix Custom Cabinets
Finding the right kitchen cabinets can take time, but it doesn’t have to be a long, drawn-out process. It is possible to have the kitchen you’ve been dreaming of without waiting several months for custom-made cabinetry.
All you need to do is put some forethought into the process: sit down, think about your options, and make a few key decisions before you start shopping around. When you know in advance exactly what you’re looking for, the process of finding, purchasing, and installing your new kitchen cabinets will go much more seamlessly and take less time.
Here are the key decisions you need to make before purchasing your Phoenix custom cabinets:
One of the first things you need to determine is the size of the cabinets you’d like to have. Do you want your cabinets to reach all the way up to the ceiling? Or are there soffits built into your kitchen that will only accommodate shorter cabinets? (Soffits – also called bulkheads – are the boxy structures above kitchen cabinets used to hide electrical wiring, pipes, and other mechanical elements.)
In addition to the height of the cabinets, you also need to consider how wide and deep of a cabinet you want. The standard depth for upper cabinets is 12 inches; lower cabinets are typically twice that depth at 24 inches. It is possible to find cabinets of various depths, especially if you’re willing to invest the money in customized cabinetry. Widths can range anywhere from 9 to 36 inches.
Measure your kitchen and decide upon the ideal height, depth, and width of the cabinets before you start shopping around. Be as specific as you can – having precise measurements will help streamline the process. If you’re not sure what size cabinets you need, consult with a local supplier; they’d be happy to help you find the kitchen cabinets that would work best for your home.
There are generally three types of kitchen cabinets: stock, custom, and semi-custom. Stock cabinets are by far the most economical choice of the three. These cabinets come fully assembled and are available in standard sizes. Cabinet suppliers keep a large stock of these on-hand, which means you can get them quickly with no lengthy lead times necessary.
Custom cabinets are made to order. Whatever size, material, color, or style you want, you can get it with custom cabinets. You’ll also pay the price for these endless options; customized cabinetry can cost up to 10 times as much as stock cabinets. In addition to money, patience is also required – how quickly you receive your cabinets depends completely on the cabinetmaker’s schedule and availability.
Semi-custom cabinets fall somewhere between the other two options. They offer a wider range of sizes and styles than stock cabinets but they’re not completely customized. Semi-custom cabinets are more expensive than stock cabinets and they can require a long lead time for delivery.
When it comes to the style of your kitchen cabinets, there are a lot of options to choose from. What color do you want your cabinets to be? What kind of finish do you prefer? Do you want framed or frameless cabinets? What type of hardware would you like to use? If you have trouble deciding which of these options would be best, visit a local showroom to get a better idea of the choices available to you.
Once you’ve determined the size, type, and style of cabinets you want, the next decisions you need to make are how much you’re willing to spend, who will install the cabinets, and how quickly you want them done.
