Benefits of Adding Custom Cabinets to Your Home

The contrasts between solid wood bespoke cabinets and cheaper cabinet options are significant. Of course, many homeowners have never actually experienced bespoke cabinetry. Consequently, they may be ignorant of the significant influence which updated cabinets can have on the aesthetic, practicality, and value of a house.

Cabinets Designed for Your Home Only

Many contractors use the word “custom” much too liberally. Custom should imply (and you should anticipate) cabinets created with just one home in mind — yours. However, cabinet makers create prefab or semi-custom cabinets in large numbers, with fixed possibilities for size. Installers must use fillers and spacers to make these cabinets seem to match your house, and all these gimmicks waste space and create awkward-looking gaps between cabinet parts. Truly custom cabinets, such as from Cabneato Newmarket, avoid all these problems.

Special Features

Custom cabinets provide several distinctive characteristics. Prefab or semi-custom cabinets may provide some of these same qualities; however, size and positioning possibilities will be restricted.

One of the most common cabinet features in a kitchen renovation is a pantry cabinet with pullout drawers. Pantry cabinets with solid wood bespoke doors are more beautiful than typical walk-in pantry closets. Perhaps more importantly, they provide increased storage capacity when removing the structural and drywall space associated with pantry closets.

Quality Craftsmanship and Materials

Highly trained carpenters make top-quality bespoke cabinets using precision automated machinery utilizing solid wood. Prefab cabinets frequently employ inexpensive wood replacements such as MDF (medium-density fibreboard), particleboard or melamine. These materials do not have the same beauty or durability as genuine wood, and they cannot be restored in the future. In other words, like with many things in life, you get what you pay for.

Highly Skilled Cabinet Finishing

Custom cabinet manufacturers stain and paint cabinets in a controlled production setting using specialized equipment. Proper bespoke cabinet finishing requires the execution of multiple procedures under the correct circumstances. The professional artisans conducting these tasks must understand different wood species, primers, stains and paints. Their skill set generates a clean, uniform cabinet finish; brush marks, dust particles, and other defects should not be evident. The exceptional finish quality mirrors that of high-end furniture items, and the finish separates bespoke cabinets from cheaper counterparts just as much as any other aspect.

Improved Home Value

Custom cabinets not only boost the aesthetic appeal and unique utility of your house, but its value as well. A house with bespoke solid wood cabinets stands out amid neighbourhood comparables with prefab or builder-grade cabinets. For most house purchasers, bespoke cabinetry represents a considerable improvement from their existing abode. The attractiveness, increased storage and durability are immediately apparent; therefore, people normally pay extra for these advantages. You may not only enjoy the advantages of bespoke cabinets for yourself for many years, but you can also anticipate a great return on your investment down the line.

 

Things You Should Know About Custom Kitchen Renovations

3 Tips for Kitchen Renovations

Reflecting on the Use of Space

How will the overall kitchen space feel following your remodel? You may have a particular update in mind such as stainless steel appliances or granite countertops. It is vital that you conceptualize the whole room following this update, though. You may be shocked at just how fast a single modification can alter a whole space.

The usage of space includes the technological design of the kitchen. Suppose you replace the countertops, for instance. In that case, you must be sure that any additional protrusion does not impede your equipment usage nor cause some other danger that affects the operation of the kitchen. Prioritize the “kitchen triangle” of the stove, sink and refrigerator. This triangle should measure no more than 26 feet in a normal kitchen, with no one arm measuring any more than nine feet.

Keeping Proper Ventilation

Your kitchen is the home’s number one spot where stale air may create difficulties. Proper ventilation helps to increase the life of your food and your equipment. If you are using a gas stove, then you need sufficient ventilation. While an exhaust system may not be required, it helps to reduce steam, smoke, grease and heat.

Constructing New Cabinets

If you are remodeling your cabinets, be sure that the doors do not bottleneck the flow of traffic in the kitchen or interfere with each other when opened or extended.

Also, take stock of what your cabinets will be utilized for. Do you need them for additional storage to compensate for a loss of space due to your renovations? If so, you may want to consider extending the length of the cabinets to the ceiling (or lowering them). Do you need extra overhead cabinets or base storage?
