Kitchen cabinets come in a wide variety of styles and materials. Beyond aesthetics and practicality, you'll also need to consider how much time and money you have for your remodeling project. Understanding kitchen cabinet terminology will help you make educated choices.
If you're working with a small budget or on tight time schedule, stock cabinets may be the best choice for you. Available in a variety of door styles, wood species and finishes, materials, and textures, stock cabinets typically come in 3” width increments and 6” height increments.
SEMI STOCK CABINETS
Semi stock cabinets offer more flexibility than stock cabinets, giving you more options on things like cabinet depths and styles. Your options are less than with custom cabinetry, but the prices are lower.
Custom cabinetry opens up your choices beyond what's readily available from cabinet manufactures. Your custom cabinets can be made in any material, style, color, or shape you choose. Many upgrade to custom cabinetry to get a wood finish or style not available with stock or semi stock.
Being the more traditional method of cabinet design, most stock cabinets are framed. Framed cabinets are manufactured by creating an approximately 1 by 2 frame face for the cabinet box, which the raw edges of the cabinet's sides, top, and bottom are then attached.
Durable and easily cleanable, ThermoFoil is resistant to water and moisture. A vinyl material covers the doors as one seamless piece.
