During a kitchen remodel, it is expected that you’ll have an image in mind of what you expect the finished product to look like when all is said and done. Typically, that image includes specific details about your cabinetry and its construction and quality. There are two main options available for cabinetry, and they include stock and custom products. Custom cabinets are made in all wood and designed to accommodate your storage preferences. Stock options, on the other hand, are more streamlined and typically composed of particle board and wood, making them more affordable.

We asked our interior designers and readers to contribute their experiences with both products and share the pros and cons of each. It can unequivocally be concluded that custom cabinetry will be the better option in most cases, but it will make a bigger dent in your bank account. The higher cost typically includes better customer service, more customization, and better storage solutions, though we’re here to assist in finding the best situation for you, no matter your preferences and constraints.
