Choosing kitchen cabinets can be a great experience but with so many cabinetry options available in todays market, how do you know which ones are best for you? Without a basic understanding of the different kinds of cabinets, doors and drawers that are available, making a selection can be daunting. We are here to make your life a little easier by breaking down what you need to know.
There are three basic types of kitchen cabinets: stock, semi-custom, and custom cabinets. Depending on your needs and budget, each type provides a different set of advantages.
Stock cabinets, much like the ones you will find at large hardware stores, can be supplied as an unfinished product but are sometimes available with limited finishes, and color choices. Stock sets the entry level price point for cabinets.
Semi-Custom cabinets (also referred to in Idaho, as pre-fab cabinets) offer more styles, finishes and features than stock cabinets. A semi-custom project can be tailored to meet the layout specifications and needs of a homeowner. As the cabinets themselves are mass produced (typically outside the US), they are a favorite of home builders, who can order large quantities of the same layout with several finish and hardware options for their clients to choose from. To the homeowner, the cost of semi-custom cabinets does not usually differ much from the price of custom cabinets, although the buying power of builders enables them to remain a profitable option in new homes.
Custom cabinets are virtually unlimited in options. They can be made from a wide selection of wood species, finishing options, structural platforms and modifications. Color options are vast, and design styling can only be limited by your imagination. From a price point, custom cabinets are regarded the most expensive, although in many cases, the price to a homeowner can sometimes be significantly less than that of pre-fabricated cabinets. The styling of kitchen cabinets in and around the Boise area varies a lot. Although the current trend of this area leans closer towards modern styling, there are still vast amounts of traditional cabinets being produced and installed in our community. One of the great things about custom cabinets is that an individual does not need to follow trends and can have the flexibility to create something completely unique to their needs, style, and space.
When discussing a kitchen cabinet project, sometimes the terminology can be confusing. Here are the most commonly used terms and their meanings:
Base cabinets (often called lower cabinets, or just 'lowers') are the strong, sturdy cabinets that sit directly on the floor, providing a base for your workspaces and for tje installation of heavy countertops. In a bathroom, the base cabinets provide a foundation for the vanity top and can typically be used to hide plumbing, provide storage and organization for your bathroom essentials.
Wall cabinets (often called upper cabinets, or just 'uppers') are wall mounted as opposed to resting on the floor. These cabinets are essential for functionality, and provide a focal point, adding beauty to your kitchen, bathroom or laundry room.
Tall cabinets (often called pantry cabinets, lockers, or utility cabinets) create great storage as well as a dramatic vertical look. Typically a tall cabinet will finish at around 84 to 96 inches in height, and will be installed as one unit.
Here are some other terms that can be useful to know when discussing your project:
