Custom Cabinets And Prefab Cabinets

Custom and Prefab Cabinets

Choosing to invest in new kitchen cabinets is an exciting opportunity that allows you to rethink, refine and redesign the function and use of this incredibly important space in your home.

At NAK Cabinetry we offer two styles of new cabinets, custom and prefabricated or prefab as we like to refer to them. Each style has its own unique advantages as well as limitations. Below we break down these points to help you analyze which option is best suited for your circumstances.



  • Can be designed to fit tight or limited space.
  • Height and width of cabinets is completely flexible
  • Can be custom modified to fit special storage requirements
  • Allows for maximum use of space with regular or smaller fillers.
  • Full customization of cabinet doors. You can select both the style, material and colour of your door with minimum limitation.
  • Allows for (1) one piece painted doors to eliminate joint cracking issues, which are common on 5 piece doors.
  • You can choose from 3 different cabinet interior finishes.
  • Custom selection of drawer box materials and glides.
  • Custom selection of hinges and closure mechanisms. This allows our clients to make adjustments that fit the overall vision. For example on a modern contemporary design you may not want to see any handles at all. In this case we can offer a few options for opening doors and drawers. On the other hand if a client wants to achieve a throwback or rustic look we can also use carefully selected exterior hinges mounted to face frame cabinets.
  • Panels, trims and valances, crown, corbels, posts, base mouldings and some inserts can all be modified to meet custom dimensions or a specific look or budget.
