When remodelling a kitchen, you might want to consider working with a custom cabinetmaker who can design your cabinets and cupboards, as well as the room's pantry area, from scratch. This work isn't as expensive as you might think, and it can offer many advantages for your kitchen space. Note a few of those advantages here and why working with a custom cabinetmaker can be the right choice for your new kitchen.
You have timber floors you want to match
Timber flooring isn't typically recommended in the kitchen because of the excess humidity in that space, but if you do opt for timber floors in this room, or any room of your home, and want the kitchen cabinets to match or coordinate, you might have them custom made. Trying to match wood tones and grains can be a challenge as even the same species of wood can have a different colour tone after it's been seasoned for construction. Custom cabinetmakers can suggest the right type of timber, or something that more readily coordinates, so that all the wood surfaces of your home blend and work well together.
You have lots of tools and appliances
Most homeowners have a certain number of kitchen tools and small appliances, but if you fancy yourself a gourmet chef and find that your tools and appliances are always a cluttered mess, it's time to work with a custom cabinetmaker. He or she can help you inventory your items and then decide the best way to store everything, even creating special shelving and hooks so that nothing gets lost and everything is neat and tidy but still right at your fingertips.
You can't find the right style of cabinets at a store
If you've searched dozens of catalogues and online retailers but just can't find kitchen cabinets that seem to appeal to you, a custom cabinetmaker can help. It may be that you want a mixture of cabinets and open shelving or a mixture of dark cabinets offset by plain white cupboards. Cabinets shown in retail stores are often a bit fancy and detailed, and these may not be to your taste, whereas a custom cabinetmaker can create something simple but still stylish. He or she can also offer something personalised and unique that is good for your kitchen in particular, and can mix up the styles as needed, so you're happy with your cabinets for years to come.
