An Introduction to Cabinet Types & Grades, Albemarle, North Carolina

Revamping a kitchen or bathroom is an exciting project to pursue, as these rooms are frequently used. One minimal change that will make a massive difference in these spaces is replacing your cabinets. The woodworking experts at Stanly Cabinet Co, Inc. in Albemarle, NC, can help you work through the sizes and quality grades available to secure the perfect model for you. 

There are four basic types of cabinets: base, wall, tall, and specialty units. Base models are generally 24-inches deep and 36-inches tall, with a depth of up to 27-inches if custom made. Upper wall varieties are between 12- to 17-inches deep. Tall cabinets, on the other hand, are long and narrow and usually about 84-inches in height. Specialty units are your best bet, though, as they make use of as much square footage as possible, creating storage in corners, below sinks, or above cooktops with suspended units available. 

cabinetsAfter committing to a size, it’s important to know the difference between the quality grades. These grades are based off a cabinet’s construction. The most budget-friendly and lowest quality option is the Ready-to-Assemble models. If you’re a skilled construction worker, this DIY approach may be for you. Stock cabinets are another standard, mass-produced option that comes pre-sized from the manufacturer. They offer few opportunities for customization. The materials are very standard but can range from particleboard to solid wood. If you want a wider range of styles and upscale quality, opt for semi-custom quality cabinets. You can special-order sizes for your kitchen and bathroom.

The highest end cabinets are completely custom-made. At Stanly Cabinet Co, Inc. they can guide you through the different styles, materials, finishes, and accessories available for this option. You’ll have access to the best quality wood and unparalleled craftsmanship.
