Stock Kitchen Cabinets
Find out all you need to know about the most efficient and economical kitchen cabinet option, stock kitchen cabinets.
Installing brand-new kitchen cabinets or updating existing ones can be a daunting task—but one way you can make the process more efficient is by considering the wide range of stock kitchen cabinets available.
Stock kitchen cabinets are the simplest and almost always the most cost-effective type of kitchen cabinets. Defined as any cabinets that are available completely pre-fabricated and most often pre-stained, finished or painted, stock kitchen cabinets are the "grab-and-go" version of cabinetry.
In general, stock kitchen cabinets are simpler by far than their more complicated cousins, semi-stock and custom cabinets. Semi-stock cabinets come partially finished and can be further customized by the consumer or retailer, adding time and cost to the project. Custom kitchen cabinets are built from scratch to the exact specifications of the customer, and these are by far the most expensive and time-consuming option.
Whether the consideration is time, budget or a bit of both, many customers opt for stock kitchen cabinets as an alternative. Stock kitchen cabinets are now also available in a wide range of styles, finishes and colors from many design, furniture and home improvement stores, so it's unlikely you'll be stuck with a style that doesn't fit your home if you opt for stock kitchen cabinets.
