Asking a custom home builder just how much a house remodeling project will set you back is equivalent to going to a car dealership and asking just how much a car on their lot cost. With a car, this will depend on the manufacture, warranty, and options. In custom home building and remodeling, every project is unique because of location, size, and scope along with the finishes/fixtures. Let’s look at one example of how one of these decisions can greatly impact the price of your Delahunt custom home project. One decision that I often face with my clients is custom cabinets vs. stock. Weather choosing stock or custom cabinets for your custom built home, a list of pros and cons always comes up. I’m sure that most of you considering having a custom home built have weighed the pros and cons of this decisions.

 

Stock cabinets are pre-made units that come in a standard width sizes depending on the brand and style of cabinet you decide on. Units are manufactured as teams of cabinet boxes, which limits where they may be placed together within your space. Some stock cabinets are very well made, but they’re built in mass quantities and do not come with any customizations. Obviously, with custom cabinets, you get many more options of how you want them to look, but the down fall is that this will put a bigger dent in your wallet.

 

If you want to explore the kind of cabinets available in the market, it’s best to search for them online or as Todd Delahunt at Delahunthomes.com for a good place to look. You can either purchase the stock cabinets or customized ones. The tailor made kitchen cabinets online can get really expensive if the structure of your respective kitchen is unique. If that is the case, then custom built cabinets may be your only option.

 

With no structure problems then you can definitely find the stock cabinets. They are not just destined to be affordable but you will find the ones that is going to be just perfect for your needs. Make sure they are made out of quality material. Do your research when purchasing cabinets online. Read reviews, and look over the manufactures website. You may even want to give the company a call and ask if they can send you samples of the material they use.
