Cabinets 101: Modular vs. Semi-Custom vs. Custom Cabinets

A guide to kitchen cabinets

By Sue LeVee, Kitchen Designer

When you are cabinet shopping, navigating all the available options can be overwhelming. Your neighbor did custom cabinets – do you need to? Your sister only spent $6,000 on her whole kitchen – is this an option for you? Here is how I explain it!
Cabinets are manufactured in one of three basic modes: Modular ($), Semi-Custom ($$), and Custom ($$$). The choice you make for your own project will probably be based on a few factors:  your budget, the style you like, the color or finish you want, and the interior options you are interested in.

An easy way to look at the difference is that (generally) the more expensive a cabinet line is, the more options it will offer. Oh – and the longer an order will take to build!
