Education & Training with Versil

Semi-custom cabinets can be an excellent choice for your kitchen renovation. Just like the name, these cabinetry options are a mixture of prefabrication and extra detailing. This means that when you choose this option, you will have a little input on how your cabinets appear. However, you will work with prefabricated cabinets and enhance your style from them.

You are probably wondering if this option is ideal for you. Well, you can make up your mind once you know more details about semi-custom cabinets.

Things that you should know about semi-custom cabinets

Changes you can make

When you pick this option, you can make a few changes regarding the dimensions. For example, you can change the size of the cabinet drawers or door fronts. It is important for you to know that you will not have the power to change the cabinet size. You can only choose from the size options that are offered.


When it comes to quality measurement, just remember that you will get what you pay for. There is no way you can get high quality if you pay less money. However, most features are standardized. For you to know the quality of the semi-custom cabinets, you should look at the materials made. Those made of medium-density fiberboard are of low quality and would be the least expensive.


The amount of money that you pay for semi-custom cabinets is entirely based on the materials used in the construction of the cabinets. Therefore, it is hard to ascertain that semi-custom cabinets are cheap or expensive. However, they are often cheaper than custom cabinets.

When you should choose semi-custom cabinets

Here are the scenarios where semi-custom cabinets have come in handy:

  • One of the scenarios, when you can use semi-custom cabinets, is when you are simply looking for a facelift in your kitchen. This is when your idea is to make the kitchen look brand new.
  • You can also use semi-custom cabinets when you are not interested in changing the layout of your kitchen. This means that you are just making minor changes that do not impact the overall look of the kitchen.
  • When you are working on a limited budget, the semi-custom cabinets can be of great help since they are affordable.
  • You can also use them when a huge part of your budget is allocated to another aspect of your kitchen, e.g. lighting.

Therefore, you should consider semi-custom cabinets if you are planning a kitchen remodeling.
