Who to Talk ToYour cabinet designer can be an architect, design consultant, contractor, cabinet shop professional or a specialty cabinet design professional. In any case, you want to look carefully at the designers’ experience and referrals, and visually inspect some of their past work. There are many high-quality professionals designing sound cabinet plans for homes, but fewer who truly combine a fresh perspective with that experience. In addition to comparing reviews, one of the best ways to ensure a good job is to interview past clients to confirm their satisfaction. GDC Construction
Types of CabinetsCustom, semi-custom and stock (off-the-shelf) cabinets are your options. There’s a wide variation in quality available in all of these types, and we’ll detail and review the categories (and construction quality variables) in subsequent installments of this series.As a general rule, custom cabinets allow greater flexibility and quality at higher cost. Semi-custom is probably the most commonly used category; it offers a set of styles, colors and sizes to the homeowner. Stock cabinets are typically cheapest and are available online or off-the-shelf in many stores. It’s difficult to design a kitchen around stock cabinets without a serious effect on the functionality of the space, but stock cabinets can be a good choice for stand-alone or mere storage cabinets. The prefabricated vanities seen here are stock cabinets. This is often a very efficient and cost-effective choice for bathroom vanities, as there are many styles and sizes available. Often, the countertop, sink and even the mirror are included in the package, helping to lower the cost. Catherine Renae Thomas Design Co.
CostThe potential cost of cabinets varies widely. If you’re picking up a stock cabinet at your local hardware store, you might pay as little as $50 to $100 per linear foot. If it’s a custom job, with specialty moldings, panels, high-quality materials and bells and whistles like display sections, spice racks, wine storage and other upgrades, then you may need to open your wallet and get ready to dig deep. Here’s a ballpark breakdown:Stock ($50 to $500 per linear foot)Semi-custom ($100 to $1,000 per linear foot)Custom ($500 to $2,000 and up per linear foot)
