Many home builders don’t know the difference between custom cabinets vs. builder grade cabinets. Quality cabinets can be installed by many companies and are determined by many factors, but custom cabinets are often built to last much longer than mass-produced ones. Rasmussen Custom Cabinets wants to install cabinets that will last through all stages of life and are built to your specifications. Keeping your home looking professional and functional is important to our builders at Rasmussen. Here is more information about the difference between custom cabinets vs. builder grade cabinets.
What Are Builder Grade Cabinets?
The biggest thing to know about builder grade cabinets is that they are more mass-produced and can be made of multiple materials including particle board, plywood, or cheaper wood products. This makes them ready-to-assemble and saves companies on shipping costs but sizing and style options are limited.
These cabinets are budget friendly but often don’t last through wear and tear. These cabinets may often need to be replaced or updated before you move or have outgrown them.
The Benefits Of Choosing Custom Cabinets
There are many benefits of custom cabinets and their completely hand-built design. They are made of high-density wood which makes them resistant to moisture and damage which is a major high point when it comes to something you use daily.
Custom cabinets come in a variety of colors and styles and can be made to your exact specifications. Different sizes, multiple designs, and different woods can all be incorporated into one kitchen or multiple spaces in your home. While builder grade cabinets may be more affordable, custom cabinets are the best investment for your home. Without them, your daily function would be severely limited.
Custom cabinets with Rasmussen Custom Cabinets not only come with durable cabinets but with our excellent customer service and installation. Installing cabinets in a home is no easy job, but when you work with a trusted company, you can rest assured that your cabinets will hold up and offer you the organization you desire. Our team combines functionality and beauty together when building your custom cabinets so that they will be a focal point in your home.
Can I Make My Builder Grade Cabinets Look Custom?
If you have had previous builder grade cabinets installed or moved into a home where they exist and do not want to replace them, there are some tips you can try to improve the quality and look of the current cabinets.
Adding crown molding can give your builder grade cabinets a facelift and give more detail. Crown molding also can extend your cabinets all the way up to the ceiling.
Open shelving next to the existing cabinets is a good modern way to update the look of your kitchen or bathroom. Open shelves can also be changed to any color or material if updating those portions of the cabinets is not available.
One of the simplest ways to update the look of your cabinets is to add new hardware. New hardware is easy to find and fairly easy to install. Hardware should be trendy and functional and can add a focal point to the cabinets.
