A trundle bed

My kids had their own beds but we realised that a lot of the time they seemed to end up in our bedroom anyway. Between being sick and having nightmares we had an extra person in our bed a lot and things were getting a bit cramped. We ended up solving the issue by finding a slimline trundle bed that we could have under our bed and pull out for the kids to sleep on when they needed to sleep in our room. This blog is all about finding trundle beds, pull outs, and other furniture to help make life easier when you need it.

Tips to Follow When You're Using a Cabinet Maker to Build Custom Cabinetry for Your Kitchen

by Darren Spencer

With so many design ideas for custom cabinets available out there, you can easily feel overwhelmed when it is time to customize your own kitchen cabinets. Keep in mind that how you style up your kitchen with custom cabinets can reveal a lot of things regarding your personality and lifestyle.

If you are using a cabinet maker, such as those at Kurt Sander Ltd, to build custom kitchen cabinetry that will suit your personal sense of style as well as the way you live, here's some crucial advice that can help make your project a lot easier to execute. 


Having several custom cabinet design options at your disposal is a good thing if you know how to sift through those options to determine which ones are best for you. When you are coming up with a design for your custom kitchen cabinets, you should be able to distinguish features that mean the most to you from those which matter the least.

For example, you might have a personal liking for a particular construction material for your custom cabinetry, e.g. wood, and you are therefore unwilling to have anything other than wood cabinetry in your kitchen. Make sure your cabinet maker is aware of the most important things you need incorporated into your cabinetry from the start of your project. Other things such as the finish type needed for your custom cabinets can be discussed later on once the cabinets have already been built.


Once you have a clear idea of what design features you want for your custom cabinets, and you have communicated the idea to your cabinet maker, you will need to know how much the cabinets will cost. Unless you can provide your cabinet maker with a comprehensive description of all design features you will need incorporated into your custom cabinets in advance, it is difficult for you to get an accurate price estimate for the project.  

Unlike ready-made kitchen cabinets, which come with a price tag already attached to them, cabinet makers often charge by the project because the costs of construction material, labor and finishes can fluctuate significantly depending on what you select.

For that reason, be ready to discuss how much you want to spend on custom cabinets with your cabinet maker so that you can choose the most affordable options available.

Designing and budgeting are crucial aspects of your custom kitchen cabinetry construction project. Following the above-elaborated tips will help ensure your cabinet maker builds custom kitchen cabinets that truly reflect your personality and lifestyle.
