If you own a home, you know how much time you spend in your kitchen. Long gone are the days when the kitchen was hidden out of sight. Now, it is the center of all the action for most households. When you’re ready to remodel your space, custom kitchen cabinets from Kitchen Infinity will make a dramatic difference.
As exciting as it is to choose new cabinets for your kitchen, it can also be nerve-wracking. Since cabinets take up so much real estate in a kitchen, they should be the show stoppers. But that can make it feel overwhelming when you have to decide what type of cabinets you want.

Kitchen Cabinet Options
There is a seemingly endless number of choices when it comes to cabinetry in your kitchen. But in reality, the options fall under a few categories. One option not listed below is cabinet refacing that you can also explore or ask one of our experts about. Typically, your time and money budget are big deciding factors as you decide which route to take.
To get started, you have three choices for your cabinets:
- Custom – As the name indicates, these kitchen cabinets are fully customizable. They offer the biggest range of options in style, color, size, and configuration.
- Stock – These are prefabricated cabinets that come in a limited number of styles, materials, and colors. Stock cabinetry comes in standard sizes and is the most economical.
- Semi-Stock – This option gives you a little more flexibility. It offers more variety in colors and styles than you get with stock cabinets. But you cannot customize styles and configurations.
Once you select which path you will take for your kitchen cabinet design, you will decide on the actual cabinet doors by looking at materials, colors, and styles. Customers work with a Kitchen Infinity design specialist to narrow down their choices until they find the perfect fit.
Customizable Kitchen Cabinets
For most homeowners, custom cabinets are their preferred choice. Customizing the cabinetry for a kitchen is the only way to achieve a look that is uniquely yours. It is also the best option to ensure you have sufficient storage to meet your household’s needs.
When planning for custom cabinetry, it is crucial to work with a designer. Their expertise will help remove the overwhelm from your decision-making process. There is a lot to consider when purchasing custom cabinets, so it is essential to have an expert team to help.
Your designer will guide you as you make these crucial decisions:
Before you can get very far in the design journey, you need to settle on a style for your kitchen cabinetry. Is your home decor modern? Traditional? Rustic? What type of kitchen countertops do you have? Or maybe you’re not sure what style you are trying to achieve. A designer can help you decide this so that you can move on to the next steps in the project.
Once you know your style, the Kitchen Infinity experts can help you choose the type of cupboard doors and drawer fronts you would like. Generally, you can choose from:
- Recessed Panels
- Raised Panels
- Slab Panels
- Mullion Panels
And many custom cabinet builds include options with no doors. Some homeowners enjoy keeping a few upper cabinets open for display and visual appeal.
And keep in mind that with custom cabinets, you do not have to install the same look throughout the kitchen. You have the luxury of mixing and matching to suit your needs and preferences.
Pinpointing your home design style will help you narrow your choices for cabinet materials. If you have a very modern aesthetic, you may want to consider metal or glass custom cabinetry. Homes that have an industrial look may need solid wood cabinets with metal hardware.
When designing custom cabinets for a kitchen, there is a wide range of materials available. Take time to look at samples to get a feel for how they fit into your home’s decor.
Planning the layout for your cupboards is when you truly see the benefit of choosing custom cabinetry. Your Kitchen Infinity team will take precise measurements and work with you to maximize the space. Determining where everything will go is part of the fun with a new kitchen plan.
Obviously, storage is the key here. Working with our experts, you will be able to plan the kitchen of your dreams, with room for everything you need to have at your fingertips. Whether you need long stretches of cabinets or have non-standard spaces to deal with, custom cabinets fit the bill.
Is Custom Cabinetry Worth the Investment?
When it comes to home upgrades and remodels, there are two ways to look at the money they require.
First, you can consider the monetary worth these improvements add to your property. When done right, they immediately boost the value of your home.
Second, you can examine the quality of life these updates give you as you enjoy a beautiful, well-functioning home. Living in a space that feels and looks amazing does a great deal for your spirit.
Fortunately, custom cabinet installations give you both of these benefits. A high-quality kitchen remodeling project adds tremendous property value. Kitchen updates routinely provide a high return on investment for homeowners when they go to sell. And a kitchen that looks amazing and functions perfectly is a joy to have.
