High end kitchen cabinets should, for obvious reasons, stand apart from cabinets of lower cost. Like most things in life, you get what you pay for, and high-end kitchen cabinets are definitely no different.
Here are a few questions you should be asking yourself before purchasing your kitchen cabinets:
1) How long do I want my cabinets to last?
Bottom line, these "beautiful," low-cost cabinets are made with low-cost materials. Within a couple of years (in many cases even sooner), you will begin to have issues with finish wear and peal, hinge and drawer guide malfunctions, and in time your wood may even begin to split. With a high-end kitchen cabinet manufacturer, like Accent Cabinets, you can rest easy knowing that your cabinets, if properly maintained, should last the lifetime of your home.
2) How important is organization and function?
Many a chain store employee has lead an unsuspecting customer astray on kitchen cabinet design and layout. There is a very real flow to cooking and organization that one misplaced cabinet, sink or appliance can put a dampener on. Accent Cabinets employs only trained professionals that are familiar with all organizational and functional workflows.
3) How important is flexibility?
All semi-custom cabinets are built to the 3" mark. So let’s say you have a space that can take a 17 3/4" cabinet, guess what? You'll get a 15" cabinet and a 2 3/4" blank filler. This little cut in cabinet size could mean the difference between having a pull out waste basket exactly where you want it, having to move it across the kitchen, or losing it all together! And what a waste of precious storage space! With a high-end kitchen cabinet, you get them sized to a 1/16 of an inch. Need 17 3/4"? No problem! We cut to the size you need to optimize any space you're trying to fill.
4) Does personalization matter?
Granted, there are some choices in the semi-custom cabinet market, but these choices are very limited. With a high-end custom kitchen manufacturer, the sky is the limit. For instance, color match stains and varnish are not a problem, we can recreate matching pieces (doors, trim, entire cabinets) from antiques and other family heirlooms, we also have literally thousands of decorative hardware, wood corbels, posts, columns, and appliqués to choose from. With all these choices, there is zero chance of anyone mistaking your cabinetry for a run of the mill, cookie-cutter kitchen.
