Choosing Your Cabinets: Custom or Factory?

Posted on Friday, October 7th, 2016.

Cabinets are one of the biggest investments you make in your kitchen remodel. So choosing the right ones is important. The world of cabinets has changed dramatically from even 15 years ago. Previously, custom-made cabinets that were made in a local woodworking shop were thought to be superior. Factory cabinets were not well made and lived up to their low expectation of being flimsy. Cabinet companies woke up and made the necessary changes to improve their product. Factory-made cabinets now boast of great features such as all-wood boxes with dovetail construction, full-extension, self-closing drawers, concealed adjustable hinges for optimum door alignment, and much more. The cabinets come with a fine furniture finish that brings out the beauty of the wood that is sturdy. Wood Wise is a dealer for KraftMaid and Waypoint cabinets, both offering many door styles, woods, finishes, and storage solutions. We have found today’s factory-made (often called “semi-custom”) cabinets are the best choice for homeowners. Our cabinet expert, Kathy Walker, makes it easy for you to choose the cabinets that will make your home both beautiful and convenient.
