There are three main types of kitchen cabinets. These include, in-stock kitchen cabinets, semi-stock kitchen cabinets, and custom kitchen cabinets.
The third type of kitchen cabinets are manufactured in factories but are custom-designed to fit a client's specifications. Usually these cabinets are made of hardwoods that are finished with veneers and laminates. The best examples of this type of cabinets are usually multi-layered with specially baked-on finishing, which makes them very durable and attractive at the same time. The designs and options for storage are endless. One can add different kinds of drawers, sliding shelves, pull-out pantries, and any other components that can fit into the space involved. Such cabinets are usually installed by specially-skilled builders that concentrate in cabinet making.
The second type of kitchen cabinets can be bought from stores. These cabinets are manufactured in factories for mass distribution. A lot of such cabinets are collapsible and can easily be reassembled wherever they are needed. This type of cabinet is ideal for those who do not plan to stay at a certain house for a long time, or those who move frequently. Such cabinets are quite cheap and are available almost anywhere and anytime. The downside is that the designs of such kitchen cabinets are rather limited and there is no guarantee that they would fit kitchens perfectly. Nevertheless they serve their purposes of storing food and supplies well enough.
Cabinets that are custom made have parts that are modular and changeable, thus, you will be able to change the area of the cabinet at once and carry it with you just like any other furniture if you decide to relocate. It is significant that you purchase kitchen furniture that is of good quality to make it a treasure trove later.
When selecting kitchen cabinets it is a good ideas to start by defining your style. Will your kitchen design be more along the lines of a traditional look with raised panel doors and a lot of ornate molding? Or will it be more of a rustic look with knotty pine and more simple detailing?
