Building Your Own Kitchen Cabinets: If you have ever considered building your own kitchen cabinets and aborted the idea by convincing yourself that you have no woodworking tools, or I know nothing about wood staining and finishing, or little about cabinet making in general, then read on and believe me when I say it can be done with minimal tools.
We start with the base. Cabinets which rest on the floor are supported by some kind of a base. This base could be an entirely enclosed base, scrolled based, bracketed feet or it could be a set of legs. Next are the adjustable feet that can be secured to the bottom of the cabinet by having the leg base screwed onto the cabinet bottom. This can also be attached by means of a drill through the cabinet bottom at definite locations. With these adjustable feet, the cabinets are no longer scribed to the floor for leveling. These adjustable feet help you minimize the problem of depressed parts on the floor. Also they come in much variation depending on the type of furniture it is being used. There are also anti-vibration mounts, which lessens tremors that cause disruption and extreme damages.
A custom cabinet should allow you to choose the finish and details of your cabinet. This way you'll be able to coordinate the finish to either your wall color or any existing shelf systems you have in the room already. Other details include a display light kit, decorative bases, a clock at the top and framed or unframed glass doors. With so many options, you'll be able to completely customize your cabinet.
We are not going to discuss in detail how to finish your cabinets in this how to because it is a separate issue altogether, but suggest you install the cabinets and hire a professional painter to do the final step.
The first step to make when looking for a better deal on kitchen cabinets is to try to buy direct. The common saying around the renovation world is that \"retail is for fools\" and unfortunately it is; however at times this is easier said then done. This is unfortunate because the majority of consumers will go to big box retail stores and think they are getting a good price on building supply products. If you go to a local building supply store, instead of a big chain store like Home Depot, you will find much better customer service. And from this customer service will come better prices. If you know exactly what products you are looking for, you really won't be able to find a better deal than what you will find on the internet. So if you have to buy from a retail store'go local, but by all means try to buy your kitchen cabinets online.
