As you start shopping for new kitchen or bath cabinets, we, at Floor & More LLC feel it is important to understand the difference between cabinet types. The best choice for your home will be based on a variety of things including budget, finish options, style and lead time to name a few.
There are so many decisions to make in a kitchen renovation as it is, so we've made it easy for you to learn what contrasts our two largest cabinet types- Stock and Semi-custom.
At Floor & More LLC we feel that it is best to start by learning what stock and semi-custom cabinets are. As you read through this article, keep in mind that these terms refer to their method of production and not the quality of the cabinetry. All cabinets sold at Floor & More LLC are made of high-quality materials and finishes.
What are stock cabinets?
Stock kitchen and bath cabinets are ready made and mass produced for your ordering convenience. They are available in predetermined sizes, often in three inch increments. All the items are stocked so when you order they are picked, packed, and shipped to you within a week or so. When viewing available door style and finish options in our stock cabinet lines, what you see on our showroom is exactly what we offer, and there are typically enough skus to accommodate 95% of design situations.

What are semi-custom cabinets?
Semi-custom kitchen and bath cabinets offer more flexibility in sizes, more finish options, more variety in SKUs. As the name indicates, semi-custom cabinets are not fully customizable, but they provide a higher level of customization compared to stock cabinets. For instance, they can accommodate most/all design ideas as well as reduce the need for fillers and on the job fabrication because of the additional sku availability. Due to these extra abilities, the lead time increases for semi-custom cabinets to roughly 5-7 weeks.
