If you are going to be home and will be able to utilize your kitchen, the next question is, can you spare the funds necessary to buy fully customized cabinets? If the answer is no, then maybe you should consider semi-custom. Semi-custom cabinets are made to order and while you don’t have all the leeway that you do with fully custom kitchen cabinets, you also don’t have the hefty price tag. Many of the top names in the industry offer semi-custom options including, Medallion, KraftMaid, and Wellborn. In the end, it is often hard to tell the difference between semi-custom and fully custom, but you will know the difference as you will see the savings in your checkbook ledger.
