With all the home fix-it and DIY shows on TV these days you’ve no doubt seen every type of home, kitchen, bathroom, and basement remodel there is. So you’ve undoubtedly realized how upgrades can improve the aesthetic perception and financial value of your home. Doing it yourself can be fantastic. It gives you a chance to learn something new, use tools you’ve never used before, and also gives you a great sense of accomplishment. There are quite a few projects around your home that can be done in a weekend or two and don’t require any type of special training. Custom cabinets are not one of those things. You’re much better off by leaving custom cabinetry to the professionals.

Modernizing the outdated kitchen

Do the cabinets in your kitchen now look like they’re from the 80’s? Are they from the 80’s? All joking aside, many people upgrade a large portion of their homes, but cabinets are often left untouched. Why is that? It’s likely because cabinets are extremely difficult to replace, refinish, re-mount, and add hardware to. This is a job best done by expert cabinet crafters. When you hire an outsider to help you complete your kitchen’s look, you’ll get an objective opinion with no bias. Their goal is to design your custom cabinets to mesh with your countertops, flooring, and appliances. Whether you’ve got hardwood floors, tile, or laminate, you need countertops to complement them. The same goes for countertops, whatever stone, tile, or synthetic counters you have, having matching cabinets is essential. Herein lies the problem. Sure you might be able to supplement the look of your floor with cabinets, and maybe you can choose something that balances the countertops and cabinets, but getting all three to coalesce is key.

Benefits of custom cabinets

One of the advantages of custom kitchen cabinets over standard cabinets is that they’re built by skilled craftsmen and not made on some random assembly line. They’re built to last with sturdy materials and are suited to your kitchen’s specific theme and to your taste. If your family is building a home, cabinets can provide you with unlimited design potential. You can literally build your kitchen and bathrooms around your cabinets. Another wonderful benefit of being able to customize your cabinets is that they can be designed for any height necessary. There is no standard height, width, color, or design with custom cabinets. The possibilities are literally endless.

Let's stop wasting space

When you customize your cabinets, you have the opportunity to go as high as the ceiling will let you. Space tends to get more and more expensive by each square foot, so why not maximize with height? The five boroughs of New York City add up to only 304.6 square miles, yet 8.5 million people live there. Let’s extrapolate that for a moment. The square mileage of Gwinnett County is 437, yet there are just shy of 900,000 residents. If you live in or know about Gwinnett, it’s obvious how crowded it is. But imagine if we built upward. It would still be crowded, but there would be 3 or 4 times as many people. That’s the idea behind building taller cabinets. It doesn’t necessarily take up too much square footage, but you gain plenty of shelf and cabinet space.

Personalize your kitchen

No one likes a boring kitchen. They don’t sell homes. An extravagant kitchen with a tasteful theme and a good helping of personality sells homes. Ultimately, your home is your biggest investment and upgrading your cabinets to complete your kitchen is going to go a long way in helping you market, sell, and increase your investment in your home.
