Are you planning a full kitchen renovation, or do you want to give your kitchen an update that will have a major impact? If so, consider custom kitchen cabinets.
Why choose custom cabinets for your kitchen renovation or update?
Custom kitchen cabinets are built according to the specifications of the kitchen in which they will be placed, and there are near endless design options to choose from, so you can be sure to find a style that matches your tastes. Additionally, custom kitchen cabinets are built to last and can be refinished. On the other hand, stock cabinets are available in limited sizes, shapes, styles, colours and finishes. The lifespan of stock cabinets is shorter than custom cabinets, and stock cabinets cannot be refinished.
It is, however, important to note that since custom kitchen cabinets are made to order and require expert craftsmanship, they will take longer to be delivered than stock kitchen cabinets. When planning for a kitchen renovation or kitchen update, you must budget this additional time to ensure your project stays on track.
Here’s what to expect when designing custom kitchen cabinets for your home.
Planning and design (2-3 weeks)
Before you start designing your custom cabinets, you must first define your vision for the space they will occupy. During the planning stage, you and your cabinet designer will work together to identify your needs and refine your ideas to create a vision board, and from there, work to narrow your options.
After you have settled on a design, materials, finishes and hardware, your cabinet designer will create a design proposal for your custom kitchen cabinets. Once you approve the design plan, your cabinet maker can start building your cabinets.
Manufacturing and delivery (6-8 weeks)
You should expect a lead time of up to 8 weeks for your kitchen cabinets to be manufactured. If you plan to wait until your custom kitchen cabinets have been completed before removing your old ones, be sure to secure a safe, dry spot to store your new cabinets until you are ready to install them.
Installation (2-7 days)
When your new kitchen cabinets are ready to be installed, the bulk of the work will involve ensuring the surfaces and square corners are level in relation to the floor. It is crucial to have an experienced installer mount your custom kitchen cabinets as improper installation can damage cabinets, affect their ability to function properly or even make them appear to be of inferior quality.
The size of your kitchen and the number of cabinets to be installed will determine how long the installation process will take.
