Built-in Cabinetry and Shelves

Cabinets are an integral part of organizing your home and making the most of the space you have.

It’s important to understand what what your options are: floor cabinets, wall cabinets, framed cabinets and frameless cabinets. The variety of cabinets may seem overwhelming at first.

In terms of kitchen cabinets, we have some choices between base cabinets versus wall cabinets.

Base cabinets are also known as floor cabinets, and are meant to be installed on the floor. Wall cabinets are, by definition, affixed to the wall. Typically, base cabinets include a countertop. This countertop can often act as the focal point of the kitchen and can be made from various materials, and everything from a solid wood chopping block to marble. Often, base cabinets are built around the existing plumbing in your kitchen.

Wall cabinets, are available in a multitude of sizes and shapes, and come in variations of everything from those with doors (glass, or classic wood) or open cabinets for easy reach. Most wall cabinets come built with adjustable shelving that are lined with peg holes on both sides of the cabinet walls. This option is functional and adjustable, but also not as stable as the custom built varieties Eclectic Builders excels in.

If you have unusual dimensions in your kitchen, however, or want to make the most of your space, consider talking to the master designers at Eclectic Builders in Manhattan for your custom kitchen cabinets. They’ll let you in on every part of the process on everything from the material used to the final positioning.
