Custom, Semi-Custom and Stock Cabinets: A Quick Comparison

The cabinets are an integral part of your kitchen and bathroom design. They not only provide the storage you need, but also help define the overall look and feel of your space. Cabinets generally come in three types: stock, semi-custom and custom. But which option is actually right for your needs? 

Stock Cabinets

Stock (or Ready-to-Assemble) Cabinets

These are the cabinets you’ll find at the store, ready to be taken home and installed. With stock cabinets, what you see is exactly what you get. They are pre-built to standard sizes and don’t offer the same extensive customization as their counterparts. But if you are on a budget and need a quick and convenient storage solution, then stock cabinets are the way to go.

Semi-Custom Cabinets

If stock cabinets are the cost-effective choice, and custom cabinets are the premium option, then semi-custom cabinets sit comfortably in the middle. They are available in a wide variety of popular designs and colors, so customization is not as limited compared to stock cabinets. And while they are built solidly and use high-quality materials, semi-custom cabinets come at a fraction of the cost of custom units. Just note that you may have to do some minor adjustments and modifications to ensure they’ll fit well with your kitchen or bath.

Custom Cabinets

If budget isn’t an issue for you, then you’ll absolutely love custom cabinets. You can design them however you like using any material, color, design, pattern or hardware. Since they are built to exact specifications, custom cabinets will fit perfectly with your kitchen or bathroom. You should know, however, that they’re usually crafted at a local workshop or onsite, so expect their build and installation to take much longer.
