Kitchen and Bathroom Cabinets
At Wheat's Carpet One Floor & Home, we are much more than just your local flooring dealer. We also specialize in kitchen and bathroom design. We have the professionals and the resources to make your dream kitchen or bathroom become a reality. Cabinets are an essential asset to any kitchen or bathroom. They not only bring dimension to the space, but they are also a storage solution. We offer stock cabinetry as well as semi and fully custom cabinet options as well. There are several different types of cabinets to choose from, ranging from build type to height and sizing.
Types of Cabinets
Stock cabinets are perfect for small budget projects because they come in standard sized, pre-assembled options. These types of cabinets are usually made from plywood or furniture board covered in a decorative overlay. They come in attractive styles and options and are easy on your wallet.
Semi-custom cabinets are available in a much wider range of options when it comes to size, depth, width and height. They range from stock cabinets with custom doors and hardware, to specialty cabinets with custom materials and finishes. Semi-custom cabinets are still easy on your wallet with a little bit more of a personal touch.
Custom cabinets are all your own creation. They are the highest=end option offered with the best range of styles and dimensions. They can be made to your exact measurements and specifications that can suit the most unique of spaces. You get greater flexibility when you choose materials, finishes, and sizing. Custom cabinets are hand built to order. Although they may be the most expensive option, you get your value out of customization and high quality materials.
Cabinet Height and Sizing
Standard cabinets are known as base cabinets. They run from the floor of a room and can come up to 36 inches. You can choose how high you want them to be if you choose a custom cabinet. They are best used as a base for countertops and are typically elevated on a recessed riser known as a toe kick, so you don't stub your toes while walking around.
Wall cabinets are the upper cabinetry that run along the walls of your kitchen. Height can vary on these, some people choose to have them go all the way up to the ceiling while others opt to have some space between the ceiling and cabinet as to utilize for more exposed storage space. You can customize these with glass doors that are transparent so you can show off your favorite dishware.
Tall cabinets, better known as pantries, are used as large storage spaces. Usually they are 83.5 inches in height and run from floor to ceiling. Pantry's can be used to store things such as large kitchen appliances, cookware, dishware, and cleaning products.
Specialty cabinet units are things such as corner cabinets with lazy-Susan's, suspended cabinets, wine bottle racks, hutches, or the front of a sink or cook top. These cabinets maximize organization within the space you have available.
