Custom Cabinets vs. Factory Made: The Advantages of Custom Cabinets

If you think of custom cabinets as an investment that will increase not only the aesthetics of your home, but its value as well, the choice becomes clear.  Like a Mercedes  to a Hyundai—custom cabinets may have a higher “sticker price” than factory made cabinets, but the quality is far superior, and they are built not only to last, but to impress.

Ordering and Design Process

When you order factory made cabinets, the process is simple. Open the company’s website or catalog, choose from the limited options available, click or call the 1-800 number, and place your order. If you are a renter in a temporary residence, this option may work best for you. However, if you own your home, apartment, or brownstone, then investing in custom-made cabinetry has numerous benefits. First, it increases the market value of your home.  Second, you can have whatever you want—the design options are endless.  You choose the color, material and hardware options.

Cabinet Construction Material and Quality

Custom cabinets are made from more refined, more durable materials than pre-fabricated cabinets. At ProWood Inc., we use ¾ inch layered plywood for the cabinet boxes and formaldehyde free Medex while most factory produced cabinets are composed of  ½ inch particle board.  And, while factory made cabinets come unfinished or few choices of colors and finishes, we let you choose from a wide selection of colors and finishes. Your choices are limitless.  

Guaranteed Professional Design, Fabrication, and Installation

When you order cabinets from a catalog you are on your own. But—when you invest in custom cabinets vs. factory made cabinets, installations are completed by the same professionals that designed your order. The service is personal and done right the first time.
