Buying Guide: Custom

Good for: Kitchens where a precise fit, more configuration options, and fine detailing matter more than the price tag.
Sizes: Built to any width or height you want and with any finish, hardware, or wood species that catches your fancy.
Materials, hardware: Typically ¾-inch furniture-grade plywood for the carcasses; door and drawer fronts are usually solid wood. Full-extension glides can be undermounted and have a soft-close feature.
Buy them from: Kitchen showrooms or local cabinetmakers. Allow eight to 10 weeks for domestic cabinet delivery, 14 to 16 weeks for imports, and eight weeks to six months for a cabinetmaker.
Cost: Starts at about $150 per linear foot.
Shown: BeauxArts door in lacquered plywood in Flannel Grey; available from SieMatic
