Go With Prefab Cabinets
“Prefab cabinets will wear poorly over time (they have about a five to seven-year shelf life) and while they can sometimes look ok, they never function as beautifully as custom fabrication,” says Collins. “I always price out both for clients who are considering prefab. Usually in the end, it just makes more long-term sense to go with something that is going to last and is exactly what you want.”
