An Addendum to Kitchen Cabinetry Part II: It’s All in the Foundation!
Chmura Custom Woodworks: Understanding Kitchen Cabinetry Part II
Note: The Above Mentioned Blog Post Describing Kitchen Cabinet Components Was Very Basic
Please understand, the previous blog post was for the uninitiated, those individuals doing their first bit of research before jumping into their own custom kitchen remodeling project. The previous post was not intended for the expert, obviously, but for those who have no idea how kitchen cabinets are made or what type of kitchen cabinetry may be best suited for their needs.
In most cases, you really won’t need to have an in depth knowledge of stock, semicustom, or custom kitchen cabinets or the various components of kitchen cabinetry (i.e., bases, shelves, drawers, doors, hardware). It will not be necessary to understand the features and requirements of and for face-frame or frameless kitchen cabinets and all the rest of the material we’ve covered so far.
What is important is to have at least enough knowledge to speak intelligently about what you would like in your own custom kitchen so you can convey that to your contractor. Additionally, the more you understand, the more knowledgeable you are concerning the topic, the less likely you are to be taken advantage of. And we do live in the real world, so it pays to be prepared for any contingency.
Kitchen customization can be exciting, particularly if you hire an experienced custom kitchen remodeling contractor to guide you through, someone who shares your vision. However, as noted above, in order for you you to properly convey your vision it is very important you have at least some knowledge of the subject matter and can convey it to your custom kitchen specialist.
As we progress through this series we will cover a lot of ground, some of which won’t seem particularly important or terribly interesting at the time. We apologize for that! However, if you stay with us day by day as we continue to take you through the ins and outs of kitchen customization and remodeling, you will find the background invaluable when you begin your own kitchen remodeling project, whether a complete custom kitchen or the addition of new kitchen cabinets and kitchen countertops.
