Your kitchen is truly the heart of your home. It’s your gathering place for friends and family. It’s where you congregate during the holidays, parties and especially for those meals eaten standing-up over the sink. Your kitchen is a major decision factor for buyers when it comes time to sell your home. This is why a Custom Kitchen Renovation is a great idea and an investment that pays off in the long run.

Renovating your kitchen is more than just updating appliances and fixtures. A custom kitchen will focus on what's important first. It's about transforming the look of your kitchen, giving it a more modern or traditional feel to match the rest of your home, plus adding functionality and space. It’s about designing a space that fits your needs and your budget, while increasing the added value to your home. Proper planning, execution and choosing the right professionals whose expertise and attention to detail can save you thousands in the long run.

The Benefits of a Custom Kitchen - Efficient Use Of Space
Kitchen Designers utilize every nook and cranny to achieve maximum efficiency and storage potential when planning any new kitchen. A seasoned professional understands your needs and can translate that into a successful design.

They have seen it all and use that experience to ensure costly mistakes are not made. Mistakes like measurements can leave a kitchen with unsightly gaps, uneven surfaces and costing you thousands extra to fix. This is especially true if limited space, lots of space, or an unusual layout are issues.

From slotted shelving to organize your baking trays to taller cabinets that can hold your canning and preserving equipment, custom cabinets will make your life easier. Best of all, you don’t have to settle for standard dimensions if smaller, taller or wider is what you need. Unique cabinets can also be created for specific uses, like holding cutlery or storing spices, to increase your kitchen’s efficiency.

Why get Custom Kitchen Cabinets?
Kitchen cabinets are handmade by skilled cabinetmakers.Trained craftsmen use only the very best of materials and take great pride in their art. Unlike flat pack cabinets pulled together on an assembly line, custom cabinets are built to last.

Additionally, in a tight kitchen, stock and pre-fabricated cabinets in standard sizes might not be worth the initial material savings because you will need more inventive labor to fit everything in. In a large kitchen, extra depth or high ceilings give you an opportunity for additional storage and functionality. Non-standard cabinet heights and depths can bring value to your renovation and re-sale value. Multiple corners, awkward niches, and unusual footprints can be tough to outfit. Stock and pre-fab cabinets in standard sizes may force you to spend money on filler materials, wasted space, and labor for custom adjustments.

The Benefits of Having a Wood Variety to Select From
Deciding on custom cabinets means you get to pick the type of wood used in your kitchen. Not only will you have a greater variety to choose from, but you can also reduce your impact on the environment by sourcing wood from local or domestic hardwood distributors. Some commonly used woods include: Alder, Bamboo, Cherry, Mahogany, Maple, Oak and Pine.
