If you have been thinking about remodeling your bathroom, you’re certainly not alone. In fact, in 2016 the average homeowner spent upwards of $11,000 remodeling their bathroom. And Cabinets accounted for 40% to 50% of their total remodeling budget. As far as why homeowners choose to remodel their bathrooms, the reasons are varied, but very few overlook the value that custom cabinets can add to their otherwise dated bathrooms. So why choose custom cabinets over other cabinets? Well, you have more flexibility in terms of design, color, and materials; also, custom cabinets allow you to showcase your unique style, which helps to differentiate your home from others in the neighborhood.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT CABINETS FOR YOUR BATHROOM REMODEL
As a homeowner, you’ll find that there are countless options choose from when it comes to any remodeling project, bathroom remodels included. This is especially true when it comes to cabinetry; after all, there are custom, semi-custom and factory-built cabinets available, which makes choosing the right one much more challenging. To help simplify your decision-making, let’s take a closer look at the benefits offered with each cabinet option:
- Semi-custom cabinets – This option allows homeowners to have some say in the design, color, and build of their cabinets. However, we must emphasize the word “some” as the selection process is not completely autonomous. In essence, you’re choosing from cabinet samples made available by the manufacturer that best match the aesthetics of your bathroom.
- Factory-built cabinets – These cabinets are ideal for someone who is using their home as a rental property or only plan to stay in the home short-term. Needless to say, you have very few options available to you with this type of cabinetry. It should also be noted that the construction is not as solid as other offerings; in fact, many factory-built cabinets are constructed from MDF (Medium-density fiberboard), which can quickly become damaged if exposed to moisture.
- Custom-built cabinets – These cabinets are well constructed, often from premium wood and designed to last for years. They are ideal for those looking to stay in their homes long-term. Also, they are completely customizable and provide homeowner’s with complete autonomy in every nuance of the cabinet’s design, including color, hardware, measurements, finishes, and build. It should be noted that these cabinets are considerably more expensive, but in return, you get premium cabinets that can completely transform the look of your bathroom.
BEFORE YOUR NEW CABINETS ARE INSTALLED
To make installing your new cabinets a seamless transition, you’re encouraged to some prep work, which entails settling on a color/design for your cabinets and also getting measurements. By getting an accurate measurement, you’ll be able to make a better choice regarding where your new cabinets should fit in your bathroom. This information is especially critical if you’re intending on purchasing custom-built cabinets as you will need to provide that information to the manufacturer.
