Consider The Size Of Your Budget on Kitchen Cabinets

There are three main types of cabinet style:

– stock
– semi-custom
– custom 

Stock cabinets are sometimes sold by manufacturers pre-assembled, so the customer does not have to do any work themselves, whereas stores such as Ikea sell cabinets which need assembling. Stock cabinets are normally restrictive in both colour choice and in size.
