Stock cabinetry is cabinets that are manufactured with standard dimensions, styles, and finishes. They are produced and imported from across the country and around the world.

What are the benefits of choosing stock cabinetry?

Choosing stock cabinetry is a great option for many homeowners because it is very affordable and generally less expensive than the higher-end custom options. Stock cabinets can help you save money while finding the right fit for your kitchen cabinets.

Though stock cabinet lines offer fewer options, more often than not, you can find suitable styles and prices that will not only meet your expectations but exceed them. There are plenty of options for finishes and door styles while maintaining strong construction and lower prices.

Stock cabinetry is mass-produced, which gives it a major advantage over semi-custom and custom cabinets: quicker availability. This makes stock cabinets a great option if you are working towards a deadline or are hoping to remodel in a shorter amount of time.

What are the drawbacks of choosing stock cabinetry?

Stock cabinetry lines may not always be the best choice for a kitchen due to the limited options for designs, finishes, and dimensions.

Since stock cabinets are manufactured with standard measurements, it may be difficult to achieve a perfectly uniform look throughout the kitchen. The available options may not comply with the space’s restrictions and requirements. Also, if stock measurements do not fit your space properly, fillers may be needed, which would decrease the storage capacity.

While semi-custom and custom cabinets offer great capacity for customization, stock cabinets leave very little room for customization. However, stock cabinets are affordable and often provide many ways to bring your kitchen dreams to reality.
