Pre-Manufactured vs. Custom Cabinetry: Which Is Right for You?

Pre-manufactured cabinets are also called prefabricated cabinets. They will give you widths of 36 inches to provide the most yield out of each wood sheet, according to Studio McGee. This means that they aren’t attached to your house walls while constructed, but are instead bought and placed inside the space that you would want them to stand in. Custom cabinets, on the other hand, are built or fixed in your house permanently, meaning you can’t just move them around. But which option is right for you? Here’s what to consider.


Whether you decide to install custom cabinets or get the pre-manufactured ones will depend on the amount of money you have. Despite having similar functions, custom cabinetry tends to be a little more expensive. However, with it, you’ll be able to get exactly what you want. So, consider your budget before deciding.


Your taste in things is another factor you need to consider. Some pre-manufactured cabinets are good options since they can be moved to fit in any space, especially if your house is on the small side. You don’t want cabinets getting in the way of your traffic as you move from one place to another. Custom cabinetry requires a big space for installation but will look splendid when fixed in the right place. Whether you prefer the premanufactured or the customed ones is entirely up to you and your tastes.


When it comes to quality or quantity, you should almost always choose the better quality. High-quality cabinets will last a long time without needing repairs or replacement. They will also look nicer and withstand natural wear and tear. If you are indecisive between pre-manufactured and custom cabinetry, consider the quality of the options for each.


Your supplier can look at your space and recommend the perfect cabinetry to use. Suppliers are experts and when you aren’t sure what option to go with, they can help you make an informed decision. You can also look through catalogs your supplier may have on hand to get ideas for what might look best in your particular home.

Give your house the looks you have always dreamed of. That is the place you plan to spend the rest of your life in so make sure it looks as good as possible so that you enjoy your stay there for the rest of your life.
