Your kitchen cabinets can really set the tone for the whole space so it’s important you get the look right when you’re updating. With cabinets, the two main options you’ll have are modular or custom. So which option is best for you? While modular cabinets are certainly a consideration due to their reputation as being budget friendly, there are a number of advantages of going with custom cabinets.


1.Fits the space perfectly

With custom cabinets, your cabinets will fit with your kitchen rather than it being the other way around. Modular cabinets come in industry standard sizes which means that unless you have very specific dimensions in your kitchen, you’re cabinets are unlikely to fit perfectly and you may need to either have them cut down or have fillers inserted. With a custom choice, your cabinets will look perfectly finished and seamless – not to mention fitting right the first time!


2.Numerous different styles

Modular cabinets not only mean limited sizes, it can also mean that the selection of styles for the cabinets are relatively minimal. This can be disappointing when you had something specific in mind, only to discover that you can only choose from a handful of options. With custom cabinets, the fact that they’re not pre-manufactured means you generally have more flexibility when it comes to your colour or finish. Whether you want a pop of colour, a wood-look veneer or moulded detailing, custom cabinets let you inject your own personality into the design.


3.Allows for optimal functionality

One of the main things you want in your new kitchen is functionality and custom cabinets can provide this. The ability to alter the height of your cabinets means that, for example, if you’re tall, you can opt for raised benchtops for easier food preparation. You can also specify the depth of your cabinets which is a great option if your space isn’t particularly wide as you can opt for deeper drawer so you have sufficient storage space.


4.Budget friendly options

Just because you’re choosing a custom option with your kitchen cabinets doesn’t mean that it’s going to blow your budget.
