Stock Kitchen Cabinetry. What are stock kitchen cabinetry? Stock kitchen cabinets are cabinetry that are pre-built to a specific size and then resold by a cabinetry dealer. Stock cabinets are typically produced in 2 inch increments. In some basic kitchen layouts such as an L shaped kitchen you can lay cabinets out without much problem. But what do you do when you are fitting cabinets between two walls? Well in this case the cabinet dealer can supply you with filler pieces to take up any large gaps that will eventually occur by using cabinets that are built within 2 inch increments. These cabinet filler pieces can be cut to fit the remaining gap relatively well. The main disadvantage with stock kitchen cabinets is the aforementioned incremental sizing but also the quality. Although as with anything the lower to mid range priced stock cabinets are typically made from thinner materials and have economy hardware such as cabinet door hinges and drawer slides. There are a few advantages with using stock cabinetry the very first one that comes to mind is cost. Since stock cabinets are mass produced they can be quite affordable. Another advantage is speed, in most cases dealers have access to larger warehouses where the cabinets are stored, and you can have your stock cabinet order within a few short weeks or in some cases days.
Building codes. Many homeowners are aware that there are local, state, and federal building codes that influence the design of their homes. Kitchens are also subject to building codes. Not only do cabinet designs need to comply with regulations governing egress space and electricity, but there are likely to be various codes that are specific to each locale. Homeowners should be sure that their kitchen cabinet designers are aware of local, state, and federal building code regulations-and that their kitchen cabinet designs are compliant with those regulations. If not, homeowners may face fines, be required to redo parts of their kitchen cabinet installation, or have difficulty selling their homes without costly revisions.
