All Cabinetry Is Not Created Equal
Custom vs. Semi-Custom vs. Stock
Custom cabinetry is designed and made specifically for your kitchen, giving you an endless array of sizes, shapes, and finishes. Representing the higher-end of kitchen quality and cost, luxury manufacturers feature many combinations of wood species, finishes and door styles. Custom means having the capability of creating one of a kind pieces that are only limited by the imagination.
Semi-custom cabinets are factory-produced in common sizes — usually in increments of 3 inches — but often accommodate requests for common modifications, such as custom depths, heights, and glass inserts for additional cost. With semi-custom cabinets, unusual sizes, shapes, and accessories may be ordered. A good kitchen cabinetry designer working with an adventurous installation specialist can invent creative solutions that work within the restraints of semi-custom cabinets.
Stock cabinetry is factory made in standard sizes and shapes. It often is held in inventory until purchased, which keeps choices down to a few common sizes and wood species. Stock cabinetry is the least expensive cabinet category. Mainly this is due to less expensive construction materials like furniture board and melamine.
We believe in educating our customers. We sell a variety of cabinet lines that cater to all styles and budgets, countertops to enhance any décor, custom built-in casework, beautiful specialty wood flooring and a host of decorative hardware fixtures and accessories for nearly every room in your home.

Our Cabinetry – Stock
Stock - Armstrong and Waypoint Living Spaces
Stock cabinets are the least expensive types of cabinet lines. If cost is your top priority, than these lines are your best option. Despite their lower cost, some lines still offer solid wood, dovetailed drawer boxes with soft close drawer guides as standard. This helps to ensure longevity and value without the added cost.
