There are many advantages to having real wood, custom cabinets rather than the prefab options in most new homes. The biggest advantage is longevity; they simply last longer and are easier to repair.
When a prefab cabinet goes out of stock, it becomes increasingly more difficult to repair or replace one or two. With custom cabinets you can add to, repair, repaint, as often as you’d like. And when it comes to total kitchen and bath remodels, custom cabinets can really help in resale value.
