The custom cabinet or Minimalist IKEA Kitchen Cabinet will offer more than a modular version. They will be designed with your kitchen and your vision in mind. They are perfect. They will offer immortal beauty and amazing longevity that even competitors can never expect.
Unfortunately, we do not live in a perfect world. Some of us can not imagine spending the money necessary to secure a custom cabinet. As the economy continues to struggle, more and more people begin to share that perspective. That’s why we see an increasing level of interest in modular kitchen cabinets.
The modular cabinet collection consists primarily of pre-built and individual cabinets. In some cases, the cabinet may “grow” with buyers through the use of additional components. Both variations have two very important characteristics. They are ready for installation “out of the box” and the price is available at a price much lower than the alternatives.
Modular kitchen cabinets do have some things that work for them. They are cheaper than the alternatives. They are now available in various colors and surprising styles. They are relatively easy to install. In the right circumstances, it is possible to create a look that is almost as impressive as what can be achieved with a high class custom work. Ideal circumstances are not necessarily ordinary. In most cases, there will be considerable differences in appearance.
There are also other negative things in modular kitchen cabinets. They do not offer as much flexibility as custom cabinets. Designs tend to lean toward a more modern look, which may frustrate those who want a different overall appearance. They are not usually built to the highest quality standards.
So, are modular kitchen cabinets that smart purchases? That’s a difficult question to answer. It really depends on individual buyer situation. Those who can see a more expensive option should be able to do it. They will be happier in the short term with the look of the cabinet and in the long run with endurance and lasting value. Those who need “quick fixes” and those working on a tighter budget, on the other hand, may find that modular cabinets are the ideal solution – at least in the short term.
