Stock vs. Custom Shelving and Cabinetry

When it comes to your kitchen, your cabinets are one of the focal points of the area. With that in mind, it’s important that your shelving and cabinets look as appealing and eye-catching as possible. When you’re remodeling your kitchen, and you have plans to upgrade or change your old cabinets and shelves, you have to choose between stock and custom cabinetry. While some may not think this decision is important, there are actually certain differences between the two.

Stock Shelving and Cabinetry

One of the advantages of getting stock shelving and cabinetry for your home is that they’re quick to ship and typically cost less. You can browse the store, pick your cabinet, pay for it and then take it home with you that same day. You don’t have to worry about your product arriving on time, and you can simply have it installed in your kitchen.

However, stock shelving has limited selections, and you have no room to be creative with your cabinets and shelves when it comes to design. They’re also very limited when it comes to storage and will most likely be of lower quality compared to custom shelves and cabinets. With that said, it’s best you only choose stock shelves and cabinets if you plan on selling your home within the next 12 months.

Custom Shelves and Cabinetry

On the other hand, if you’re looking for quality, and you have no plans of selling your home in the near future, it’s best to go for custom shelves. Custom shelves and cabinets give you the design freedom you wouldn’t have with stock shelves and cabinets. You can maximize your storage options and enjoy an abundance of options for styles and finishes. With all these perks, however, comes a heftier price tag, and it will take some time for your new cabinets to be completed and installed in your home.
