Renovating? There’s a good chance you’re weighing up the difference between custom cabinetry and flat-packed cabinetry.
We believe the former has significant benefits to your space. Read on to find out why custom cabinetry is exactly all its talked up to be.
1. Maximise storage and space.
You can customise the length, height, and depth of your cabinet to maximise storage. You can also choose your own configuration to make the most out of your room. This makes the design more unique, and gives you the opportunity to get rid of awkward nooks that are a waste of space.
Customisation is taken a step further with the ability to tailor the inside of your cabinets. For example, extra shelves, bins, hidden drawers, clothes hampers, alternate drawer depths, and more. This means space it used in the way that best suits the needs and lifestyle of your family.
3. Control colours, textures, and finishes.
Choose from a huge range of colours, textures, and finishes to match the rest of your décor. At the selection stage, you can compare samples against other items in your home, so you know that what you’re getting is just right. Your cabinetry will also be designed to go hand-in-hand with elements like benchtops, basin types, tapware, and draw or door handles.
4. Enjoy seriously good quality.
Custom cabinetry uses higher quality ‘dense particle board’ in its manufacture, while many ‘off the shelf’ cabinet boards are far below Australian Standards. In short, the quality just isn’t there; your renovation will need a facelift sooner rather than later. The use of dense particle board in custom cabinetry ensures your cabinet lasts much longer.
Runners and hinges are also taken to a premium level. Draws can carry heavier loads, have better closing quality, and maximise storage because the correct runner size is used.
The fitting of a cabinet often requires filler panels and scribes to the wall or ceiling. This fills any unwanted spaces, like a gap between the top of the cabinet and the ceiling. And, with a local custom-made cabinet, these panels can be made out of the same selected board for a seamless finish.
