Modular cabinets typically come with several rows of pre-drilled holes for shelves to be placed by the individual homeowner depending on the height of shelf desired. Special wire storage drawers, dividers and other drawer inserts may also be purchased to address your kitchen storage needs.
Wood is more expensive than any of the composite cabinet materials available, and solid wood doors and drawer fronts are typical in high-quality cabinets. Examples of the more luxurious woods used in quality cabinets are cherry, mahogany, chestnut and cypress. These woods are durable, naturally beautiful, less common and therefore significantly more expensive to use. When considering the quality of your kitchen cabinets, the insides matter as well. The boxes of cabinets themselves are often made of particleboard or even medium-density fiberboard (MDF). These compressed-wood options are often used by cabinet builders to reduce the cost of the project. In high-end cabinetry, you might find solid-wood cabinet frames as well as doors; however this drives up the cost of your cabinets significantly. Regardless of the material used, the insides of high-quality cabinets should be smooth, not rough to the touch, with shelves at least three-quarters of an inch thick. Dovetail construction is recommended over glued joints to provide cabinets that hold up to heavy use. This mortise-and-tenon or dovetail joinery is seen in the highest-quality cabinets and will definitely drive up the cost of your remodeling project.
But even for professional contractors who may build dozens of kitchens a year, it can be difficult to confidently advise clients on selecting a finish that will enhance the overall kitchen environment and is appropriate to its level of use, as well as provide the best possible quality at an affordable price.
