Choosing Between Standard, Semi-Custom, and Custom Cabinets

While price point is an important factor in choosing the cabinetry that will fit into your home, it’s also important to consider the various levels of personalization and customization available in the three main categories of cabinets: standard, semi-custom, and custom.

Standard Cabinetry, sometimes referred to as stock cabinetry, is typically offered in a limited variety of sizes, styles, and finishes with a choice of options that are often categorized as “good, better, and best.” Short lead-times, easy installation, and affordability, make this an appealing selection for the budget-conscious consumer. Kitchen Views carries a wide variety of these lines: Aristokraft, HomeCrest, Merillat, and many others.

Semi-Custom Cabinetry is constructed with higher-quality materials than standard; and offers a broader selection of door styles and finishes. Some modifications can be made, providing greater opportunity for personalized space planning and design. Kitchen Views carries a number of semi-custom lines, including Dynasty by Omega, Greenfield, HomeCrest, Schrock, and UltraCraft.

Custom Cabinetry is constructed and finished like fine furniture that has been built with the skill and dedication of a fine craftsman. In addition, the sizes, shapes, colors, and interior options are practically infinite. With the availability of exotic woods from around the world and the ability to match the color and patina of an heirloom hutch, custom cabinets can be built to very particular specifications. The price and lead-time for custom cabinetry usually depends on the level of customization and the availability of the products and techniques required for completing each piece. Kitchen Views is proud to carry fine custom cabinetry by such lines as Corsi, Crystal, Irpinia, and Omega.

Ask your kitchen designer which cabinetry lines make the most sense for you and your budget. Some semi-custom and custom lines, such as Dynasty by Omega and Omega, can be mixed and matched to get a custom feel for considerably less money. In any case, you want to be sure that the cabinetry you decide on is the best fit for the long-term.

    My husband and I are remodeling our kitchen, we are going through the process of deciding what kind of features we would like to add in. Right now we are trying to pick out our cabinets, and we were told that we should look into having them custom made. I like this idea, especially when you said that we can have them built to our own specifications, like color and the type of wood we want. This will be great, because then we’ll be able to make sure that it goes with the style we are trying to create!
