Why Choose Custom Cabinets

Why would you not choose custom cabinets? By choosing custom cabinets you get to choose the design and finishes that suit your needs best. You also get to choose the layout and fit of the cabinets. For example, suppose that you have a particularly small kitchen with a lack of counter space and you need to try and maximize the storage space you have – we can help! This is something that a professional cabinet company like Metropolitan will be able to assist you with.

Investing in Your Home

A custom kitchen is an investment in your home and can provide years of enjoyment for your family. With the help of an experienced manufacturer like Metropolitan, you can create a space that is uniquely yours while still fitting your budget. 

Budget-conscious homeowners will find that while custom cabinets cost more upfront, they are worth the investment in the long run.


Advantage of Custom Cabinets

Another advantage of choosing custom cabinets is that you are able to choose the color as well as the material. This is an option that not a lot of manufacturers give you. It means that you can get exactly what you are looking for instead of hoping and wishing for it. This is an ideal option for homeowners that are looking to set their homes apart.

What is Involved in Custom Cabinets Design?

We have a showroom as well as a workshop where we build cabinets. Custom cabinets come in a wide variety of finishes and designs.

The cabinets are created by first having a layout created. This is an important part of the process as it allows you to see how cabinets of different sizes and made with different materials can fit into a space. There are a number of options available for the layout, for example, a ‘Plan of the Room’ type layout which is a detailed blueprint of the cabinet layout, or a ‘Floorplan’ type layout which is a square-bordered room with an outline and key details as well as dimensions.

Once you have created the layout, the cabinet maker will then create the best design for the cabinet. The design may be dictated by the space that you have available, the appliances that you intend to use, the objects that need to be kept in the cabinets, the materials that you want, and the design of the room, etc.

Once the cabinet maker has created the design, they will build the cabinet, which is where the cabinet maker’s skill and craftsmanship come into play. They will cut the pieces of wood to the correct sizes, drill the holes, create the corners, make the joints, reinforce the cabinet where necessary, and fit the pieces of the cabinets together.

From there, the cabinet maker will dust the cabinets and then touch them up if necessary. Once the cabinet maker is sure that the cabinets are ready to be painted, they will paint them, seal them and then send them out to you.
