Tips for Making the Most of Custom Cabinets
We know your budget may be what imposes the most pressure on your decisions, or it could be the size of your existing kitchen. Many will want to update their space in the shortest amount of time, or will think of the work as a DIY project.
And in all of these instances, custom cabinets can come to the rescue!
The trick is to know how to make the most of the opportunities that custom cabinets present. Below, we look at some of our best products for upgrading a space easily, quickly, and affordably. Before we dive in, though, consider these tips for making the right choices:
- Is it DIY or will you hire professionals? There are options in custom cabinets that can allow even the most novice DIY enthusiast to update a kitchen or bath (or other space) with little more than a screwdriver and elbow grease
- What is the budget? You may find that even lower priced custom cabinets don’t fit into the budget, but there are options that can eliminate the use of a full cabinet replacement!
- Assembled or not? You may find you can cut costs by exploring RTA cabinets (ready to assemble) or pre-assembled options
- Storage. When exploring your options for custom cabinets, don’t forget that you don’t have to stick with the style of existing cabinets. Look at options for new drawers and other storage spaces
- Have you measured? One of the most confusing issues in the use of custom cabinets is not in selecting them but ensuring they are the perfect fit. Be sure to measure properly!!
Now that you have a few tips to help you make the most of your
access to custom cabinets, it is time to learn a bit more about the best options available. Below, you will find explanations for a few of the tips we listed above, and how to use them to make the most of custom cabinet options.
Kitchen Cabinet Doors
One of the best ways to update your kitchen is with new doors. Instead of replacing the entire cabinet itself, you just replace the kitchen cabinet doors and drawers. Most cabinet boxes – the structural frame of your cabinets – remain in good condition because they don’t see a lot of wear and tear. Yet, the doors can become worn down over the years. New kitchen cabinet doors can offer new styles, introduce new features, and even provide you with a range of colors to select from, perfect for any space.
Bathroom Cabinet Doors
Our team works closely with our clients to update any cabinetry in their homes. That includes bathroom cabinet doors. Just like with the kitchen, it is possible to replace just the door of the cabinet. As a result, you can have a new look in a matter of minutes. This is a fraction of the cost you would expect to pay if you had to remove and replace the entire bathroom cabinet. It still gives you the look you desire.
A popular option today in many homes are shaker cabinets. Thes
e are one of the most trendy styles available today and we offer them at a fraction of the cost. Shaker cabinets typically have a five-piece door with an interior, recessed panel in the center. The door fronts are slabs with built-up features. Shaker cabinets are a very modern option, but they can drastically change the feel and look of any kitchen when you replace older cabinet doors with these. You can choose numerous colors and styles, though white shaker cabinets tend to be one of the most desirable options.
Drawers are one of the most important functional pieces in a kitchen. You need them – and you may even want more of them. You can find a wide range of options available to you in drawer boxes right here. Choose from those with various features including no slam features and slide outs that extend your access. Drawer boxes are an easy way to modernize your space, but making doors less likely to smash fingers. Choose from a variety of custom face frames and drawer fronts to fit just about any look.
Custom Cabinet Types
Custom cabinets are available in two styles; Face Frame and Frameless (also referred to as Euro Style), both of which we offer in our Stonehenge Custom Cabinet line of RTA Cabinets. All of our custom cabinets are manufactured at our Arkansas-based facility in Pottsville, AR. You will be hard-pressed to find a custom cabinet manufacturer with the range of options, experience, full design service, reasonable lead times, and fair pricing to compare our Stonehenge Cabinets to.
Getting Started with Custom Cabinets
Now that you see that custom cabinets are not only for those with enormous home improvement or home building budgets, it is a good idea to get started on your own custom space. Take time to learn how to measure properly and even consider drafting a basic floor plan. Use it to see if you can reasonably adjust the layout of the room or if you are locked into the current configuration.
Don’t overlook the height of the room when measuring. After all, if you cannot build outward, you can always go up! There are taller custom cabinets that can allow you to make the most of lesser used, overhead space.
Then, it is time to get in touch or use our easy online ordering system.

Cabinet design should match the very specific goals you have for your space. Colors, styles, and function are important. You also want a special that fits your character and charm.
