› Not all are created alike and this is important for wear and tear and length of life. Most cabinetry is made of engineered wood which is stronger and more resistant to the elements than 100% wood. It is also greener. The difference between cabinets, which cannot be seen, is the quality of the engineered wood. A guideline as to the quality of the engineered wood is the price, in the case of cabinetry you get what you pay for.
› Another cost factor for cabinetry is customization. The more you can customize, the more expensive the cabinetry, since it takes more time to make. Much of custom cabinetry is handmade. The plus is that you can get the look you want and maximize the storage space you need. This is especially important in kitchen cabinetry.
› When you purchase cabinetry think about how easy it is to get your questions answered before you buy. Cabinetry is a major purchase you want to get it right the first time. Also think about how easy it will be to get help to fix issues that come up as the project moves along, (who knew your sink base needed to be 3 inches smaller because the wall has pipes in the back hidden from view).
› Cabinetry can be the canvas of your room (a warm maple) or it can be the jewel (a high gloss white with stainless steel accents). An experienced designer can show you examples of both so you can decide what is your cabinetry style.
