Difference Between Semi-Custom and Custom Cabinets

Cabinet JobsIf you have been researching types of cabinets and prices in preparation for your remodel, you have likely come across providers of semi-custom cabinets. Semi-custom cabinets are not the same thing as custom cabinets, which we provide. Here are some of the differences.

What Does Semi-Custom Mean?

Semi-custom cabinets are not custom built for your kitchen. They are stock cabinets that have several flexible options, such as cabinet depth and size.

Three Common Closet Items That Always Seem to Be Without a Place

Closet JobsEveryone hopes for an organized closet—a place for everything and everything in its place. Unfortunately, there are a lot of small items that never seem to have a place in a traditional closet. Here are a few of the items that cause the most frustration.

Ties and Scarves

The only way to store ties and scarves in a traditional closet is to hang them on a hanger or on the clothing rod itself. If you hang them on a hanger, they can easily become wrinkled when pushed together with other items. If you hang them on the clothing rod, you risk knocking them off every time you get in your closet.

Shoes

If you only have a few pairs of shoes, you probably have ample room on the floor of your traditional closet to store them. But if you have different shoes for different occasions and outfits, you might need some additional space to store your shoes. Some people store shoes in their boxes in the bottom or top shelf of the closet, but then it becomes a chore to find the right pair of shoes on the right day.
