Here at Gulf Coast Installs, we have installed more than a few kitchen cabinets for homeowners in southwest Florida. Having installed both prefabricated and custom kitchen cabinets, today we wanted to talk a little bit about some of the benefits of choosing custom made cabinets for your kitchen.

Kitchen Cabinet Installation: 5 Benefits to Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Made to Order

Of course, one of the biggest benefits to having custom made kitchen cabinets is going to be the ability to design your cabinets to fit your space. Whether you’re looking for a unique paint finish, ornate scrollwork, or simply an unusual size cabinet for your kitchen, custom made cabinets will leave you satisfied. Having a professional carpenter build cabinets specifically for your needs will add value to your home and make use of every inch of storage space in your kitchen!


Another of the most important differences when comparing prefabricated kitchen cabinets and custom made kitchen cabinets is the quality of the material. Prefabricated cabinets are cheaper because they are mass-produced and they are made with cheaper materials (for example composite materials). Custom made kitchen cabinets, however, are more expensive not only because they’re built to your specifications and produced individually, but also because they are made from better quality materials (for example, solid wood). Better quality materials mean more durable cabinets and that means that your kitchen will look newer and less scuffed up.

Custom Storage

When we install custom kitchen cabinets for many of our clients, one of the favorite features that we hear about quite often is that custom cabinets allow homeowners to make the most out of their storage space. In fact, the ability to customize storage space is one of the leading reasons that many homeowners choose to have custom kitchen cabinets installed.

The problem with prefabricated kitchen cabinets is that the cabinets are built to specific measurements and these measurements don’t always work with homes that have smaller spaces or uniquely shaped areas in the kitchen. Having custom-built cabinets, however, allows homeowners to get the most storage out of smaller areas and to create functional space out of places that may not otherwise have been usable. For example, when it comes to corner cabinets, prefabricated options are quite limited. Having custom cabinets made, however, allows for the maximum use of space while also making sure that everything in storage is accessible!

Unsure About Having Custom Kitchen Cabinets Made?

If you’re unsure about having custom kitchen cabinets made for your home, we don’t blame you. There is definitely a financial sacrifice that comes with having custom kitchen cabinetry made. That said, the aesthetic and practical benefits and the added durability certainly make up for those financial sacrifices.

It’s natural to be hesitant about making a large investment, but here at Gulf Coast Installs, we can definitely say that between installing prefabricated cabinets and installing custom made cabinets, the satisfaction of clients with the overall appearance of their kitchen cabinets once they’re on the walls is much higher for those who choose to go with custom options.
