While home improvements are not cheap, they invariably increase property value. This is useful, especially at a time when you have to invest your money wisely where it is guaranteed to make some profit.
One of the minor improvements you can do is to get some customized cabinets installed in your home’s kitchen and bathroom. These rooms are top areas that most homebuyers check out when looking for a house to purchase.
Custom Cabinets vs. Stock Cabinets
Cabinets take a huge chunk of the budget in any kitchen and bath renovation since it affects both aesthetic and practical uses of these spaces. Since cost is always a big consideration in home improvements, some homeowners opt to buy cheaper stock cabinets. These mass-produced cabinets come in all shapes, colors, and sizes so it is easy to see why they hold such appeal to home renovators.
While it may seem easier to just buy stock cabinets, it is actually much better to choose custom cabinets for practical and visual considerations. Since custom cabinets are made according to your exact requirements, it will appeal to you in the aesthetic sense while accommodating your kitchen and bathroom storage needs.
If you have a rather small kitchen and bath, custom cabinets come in handy as they can be built with the small rooms’ dimensions in mind. With stock cabinets, you cannot take advantage of a room’s unique depth and dimensions.
Why buying stock cabinets may cost you more
You may think that you are saving money buying cheap stock cabinets but the truth is, you may end up spending a lot more – especially if you have tight kitchen or bathroom spaces. Stock cabinets come in standard sizes which makes it difficult to fit in its designated location in a room perfectly. Instead, you’ll be left to buy some filler materials or spend extra for labor to adjust the cabinet installation to suit the room’s specifications.
In addition, it is hard to find a standard cabinet that complements the existing design in your kitchen or bath. With a custom cabinet, you get to specify the design.
While the initial outlay cost may be just a bit more, custom cabinets save you time, and money by allowing you to maximize the use of available spaces.
