Custom Cabinets – What to Consider Before Selecting the Best Cabinets for Your Project

April 20th, 2012 · No Comments

Custom cabinets in Chicago can add flare to your design for any project.  Libraries, office buildings, medical facilities, laboratories and other projects can benefit from a well-designed cabinet installation.  Some of the items to consider when selecting the best cabinets for your project are:

* What type of doors would you prefer?  Full overlay doors, European style doors, or inset doors are among your choices.

* What materials should be used for the doors and cabinets?  Glass, wood, or a sturdy and durable laminate can be used along with other materials.

* Will you need drawers?  Depending on the purpose of your cabinets, drawers may be a very nice addition.

* What hardware should be used?  Hinges, locks, and slides for drawers can be selected depending on the purpose and style of the project.

* What type of surface do you prefer?  If your cabinets will have a counter top area, consider what items will come across the surface area.  For surfaces that need to endure and withstand a lot of use, a laminate is always a good choice.  Choose a surface that would best fit the use.  For example if food or drink will be placed on the counter, choose a laminate that can be easily cleaned and remain sanitary.

Finding the right partner and supplier for your custom cabinet project is not something you should take lightly. End-user clients have demands that are continuously growing.  Clients are asking for more innovative designs, a wider variety of materials and mixed surfaces with an eye towards durability and sustainability. This presents a challenge for many custom cabinet designers that is too great and can lead to project delays, budget overruns and overall poor execution.

Do Your Due Diligence

While it may take a little longer upfront, asking the right questions, getting references and verifying capabilities that are directly applicable to your project will save you time, money and aggravation down the road!

Custom cabinets give a uniqueness and personalized appearance to your project.  Work with a custom cabinet designer to plan your project and select the best cabinets for your upcoming endeavor. For more information about custom cabinets, click here.
