Custom Built-In Cabinetry

Built-in cabinets can be custom-built to fit a specific space or set into the wall. Custom built-in cabinetry can be used in a variety of spaces, such as in entertainment centers, flanking a fireplace, adding functionality to a nursery, or as storage in a kitchen.

Our custom cabinetry is built by our skilled craftsman to the highest quality standards. We plan and build  your built-in cabinets either on site to fit perfectly with your space for optimal functionality. We use plywood and poplar( mdf plywood) on most of our built-in cabinetry for longevity and strength. That way you can choose between paint or stain when you choose a finish.

Custom Built-In Cabinetry FAQs

Where in my home can I install custom cabinets?

Custom cabinets can be installed anywhere in the home. Their function extends far beyond the kitchen alone. You can install custom cabinets in the living room to house your TV and other electronics, or in a home office for extra storage and workspace. Another great location for custom built-ins is in a mud room for coat lockers, or in a bedroom for extra clothing and linen storage.

Can custom cabinets be moved?

Depending on how your builder installs custom cabinets and built-ins, they can be removed and placed elsewhere in the home. In order to do so you must remove them very gently to prevent any damage. If you think you will want to move your custom cabinets at any point in the future, it is best to communicate this to your builder beforehand, so they are installed in a way that makes relocation possible.

What is the difference between custom and semi-custom cabinets?

The main difference between custom and semi-custom cabinetry is in the number of options you have to build your cabinets. While semi-custom cabinets offer many choices like paint color, stain color, hardware, size, and shape, you are still limited to a strict number of options. With custom cabinetry and built-ins, the options are truly unlimited. If you can dream it, Engelhard Construction can build it.
