Stock, Semi-Custom and Custom Cabinets

Cabinets for every budget and lifestyle

As you evaluate cabinetry for your remodel, you'll notice that it comes in three basic types: stock, semi-custom and custom cabinets. To help you determine the best kind of cabinetry for your project, this overview covers the difference between the three cabinetry types, along with the advantages of each.

Stock Cabinets

Stock cabinets provide a fast and easy way to give a kitchen a fresh new look. The cabinets are made in common cabinet sizes, and are available in a limited variety of door styles, colors and finishes. A stock brand such as Aristokraft can offer style, selection and value, along with speedy delivery, to keep your remodeling project on time and bring your vision to life.

Semi-Custom Cabinets

Semi-custom cabinets are available in more styles, features and options than stock cabinets, allowing you to create a personalized look for your kitchen, at less expense than custom cabinets. Built to order and available at cabinet dealers, semi-custom cabinets are generally delivered within four-to-eight weeks.

Semi-custom cabinets can be ordered in a wide choice of finishes, stains, paints, glazes and specialty finishing techniques such as distressing. They are also available with features such as roll out shelves, door racks and organization inserts, and can be embellished with crown moulding, cabinet legs and feet, and a range of hardware choices to create a unique look.

Custom Cabinets

Capable craftsmen and designers can meet any need, whether that means working from existing cabinet designs, or using a napkin-sketch approach to make new custom pieces in the manufacturing plant, ensuring that you end up with the exact cabinets you have imagined.
