Why Choose Custom Garage Cabinets?

Cabinetry is some of the most vital storage in any home. Yes, we’d argue that cabinetry is that valuable, even when compared to your linen closet or the master bedroom’s walk-in. Closets are great, but they aren’t nearly as versatile and customizable as cabinetry. For that same reason, we highly recommend the long-term value of custom garage cabinets over the prefabricated, stock options. When the goal is to make your garage a more useful, usable, and enjoyable space, custom garage cabinet systems make a world of difference. Here’s why: 

Complete Customization

It may sound like the most obvious perk, but the single biggest benefit to choosing custom cabinetry, no matter the type, is that you will know that the end result is made specifically for your space. Whether your garage is wide or narrow, long or short, custom garage cabinets provide the flexibility to fit both your needs and your space. Custom garage cabinetry means you can have larger and smaller storage options made specifically with your hobbies, interests, and storage needs in mind. It means that you can skip the frustration of figuring out how to store your oversized, bulky, or unwieldy items because each of those things will have its own purposefully designed and designated space. 

Of course, if we’re talking about total customization, we would be remiss if we didn’t mention the aesthetic benefits as well. Custom wood garage cabinets give you a wealth of options for the colors, materials, and finishes, not just the structure of the cabinets themselves. We walk you through all of the options and provide experienced guidance to help you find the right options based on how you want to use your revamped space. For example, turning your garage into a den/living space for the family to enjoy calls for a totally different aesthetic feel than, say, a garage remodel focused around your vintage vehicle. Choosing custom garage cabinets gives you the flexibility necessary to fully realize your remodel goals. 

Better Durability

Custom wood garage cabinets offer a pretty big distinction over their prefab counterparts, and that is the benefit of added strength. As a standard, our cabinets are made from inch-thick panels rather than the half-inch panels that are the industry standard. We also use dowel construction in place of the industry-standard staple construction. Even the hinges and drawer slides we use are heavy duty and designed to hold up through a lot of repeated use. Our goal is to provide you with storage solutions that are made for your needs and made to last longer — and custom wood garage cabinets provide the longevity and durability that prefab options don’t. 

Project Flexibility

Another major benefit to choosing custom cabinetry over prefab is that we work around your schedule and your needs. Every job we take on starts with a consultation so we can take your budget, time frame, and needs into account before diving into our work. We take the time to get to know what your scheduling expectations and budget are first, so we can make sure the entire renovation process goes as smoothly as possible. If you have a house full of family coming to visit, or anything else, our team can work around those scheduling needs. We start with a consultation, get all of the necessary details in order, and develop a plan for your garage remodel. Then we mock up a plan, generate images, and solidify the plan with you. From there, all that’s left is to dive in and get your garage remodel taken care of according to that plan. Since we’re working with custom wood garage cabinets, it’s easier to make the process fit your schedule as well as your space. 

Added Value

When planning a garage remodel like this, you probably aren’t thinking about how it will help sell your home, you’re thinking about how you will enjoy the space more after the remodel is done! However, the added value of a garage remodel is something to consider whether you plan on selling any time soon or not. When done well, custom garage finishes can go a long way toward adding value to your home. When done poorly, adding cabinetry or other elements to your garage can go so far as to be a hindrance to sales — and even negatively impact your home’s value when done really poorly. Custom wood garage cabinets and other finishes offer a much better return on investment than prefab options because they are going to hold up better over time, look better, and make the space more usable, no matter how you choose to use it.
