Pre-fabricated Custom Cabinets

Pre-fabricated Custom Cabinets

Pre-fabricated and stock cabinetry is manufactured using per-determined dimensions and built to be used in a variety of generic kitchen styles.

The Problem With Pre-Fab Kitchen Cabinets

The problem this causes is that when a pre-fab or stock kitchen is installed, more times than not there will be dead space because the pieces won’t fit your specific custom cabinet kitchen layout exactly. When this happens, fillers are used to cover up any areas where the dead space exists. Many kitchens can lose as much as one square foot or more of useable cabinet space when fillers are used. Custom cabinetry allows you to use the maximum available space for your remodeling project.

Custom Cabinetry

Using custom cabinetry also gives you the highest quality product and the exact design and layout you are looking for.
