IN AUSTIN, MANOR, SPICEWOOD, & NEARBY AREAS IN TRAVIS COUNTY, TX
As you plan your next kitchen makeover or replacement of your aging or damaged cabinetry, consider the benefits of custom kitchen cabinets. New cabinetry tailored to your personal needs can help you achieve the look you are looking for, without necessarily having to renovate your entire kitchen or home.
Catalyst Construction, a family-owned kitchen remodeling company in the Austin area wants homeowners to understand the costs and advantages of having custom kitchen cabinets installed so they can make informed decisions and ultimately avoid buyer’s remorse in their remodeling projects.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF CUSTOM KITCHEN CABINETS?
Custom kitchen cabinets can cost more and take longer than installing off-the-shelf cabinetry from an impersonal big-box home improvement retailer. However. homeowners have more options and more power to shape the look of their kitchen and adapt their designs to specific needs. For example, choosing custom kitchen cabinets allows you to:
- Create cabinets in non-standard sizes for unusually shaped equipment
- Develop accessible cabinets for users with disabilities
- Achieve complex and cohesive designs and layouts that turn your kitchen into a piece of art
For example, you could order wall cabinets that are wider or deeper than usual to accommodate artwork or design cabinets at a height you can reach from a sitting position.
WHAT FEATURES OF MY KITCHEN CABINETRY CAN I CUSTOMIZE?
When you choose a custom kitchen cabinet design, a design consultant will help you to identify the aspects of the cabinets that you want to change and recommend design choices that meet your needs. Some of the decisions you will make include:
- The dimensions of the cabinets and position of cabinet shelves, including the height of base cabinets and countertops.
- The type of wood, glass. and other materials in your cabinets
- The choice of stain or paint
- The use of overlay or inset cabinet designs
An experienced specialists in custom kitchen cabinets with a commitment to customer service will work with you to achieve unusual or specialized requests. Don’t hesitate to bring up creative ideas or unique aspects of your design goals.
WHAT FACTORS AFFECT THE COST OF CUSTOM KITCHEN CABINETRY?
Kitchen cabinets make a significant contribution to the total cost of cabinets. The cost of custom kitchen cabinetry can vary from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Larger or more complex cabinets, particularly those with more expensive materials, typically cost more.
In some cases, you can save money by updating some parts of the cabinets, like the doors and drawers, while leaving the cabinet box and face frames as they are. New doors and drawer fronts have a striking impact on the look of the cabinetry.
Customized ready to assemble (RTA) cabinetry is an economical alternative to pre-assembled furniture. Because the boards that make up the furniture can be flat packed, RTA custom kitchen cabinets cost less to ship and have less risk of breakage along the way.
IS IT A GOOD IDEA TO REMODEL MY KITCHEN ALL AT ONCE?
Some homeowners can save money and expedite their home remodel by replacing their appliances, redoing the floor, changing the layout, and replacing the cabinets. However, if the look of one element, such as the kitchen cabinets, can help guide the rest of the remodel, it might help to complete that element first.
CAN A KITCHEN REMODEL INCREASE MY USABLE COUNTER OR FLOOR SPACE?
One space-saving tip is to add accessories like spice racks and holders for trash baskets into the base cabinets or built into the countertops on the top of the base cabinets. Some cabinet layouts, for example, have unusable dead space in corners. A custom design can find creative uses for otherwise inaccessible cabinet space.
WHAT ARE SOME POPULAR TRADITIONAL AND MODERN KITCHEN DESIGN IDEAS?
Many traditional cabinet designs use partial overlay cabinets that allow ornate doors to stand out from the cabinet frame. Some more modern kitchen designs use full overlay to create a smooth, unbroken line of cabinets.
Some smart home kitchen designs incorporate displays into the cabinetry and include integrated USB outlets and standard outlets for charging electronic devices.
HOW CAN I FIND A REPUTABLE KITCHEN CABINET REMODELING COMPANY?
A kitchen cabinet remodel idea is only worthwhile if a contractor can execute the idea properly, Look for an insured kitchen remodeling company in your area with a portfolio of successful remodeling projects and many satisfied customers who enthusiastically praise the company’s work.
