Apart from the design, in general, there are three categories of kitchen cabinets. They are stock kitchen cabinets, semi-custom kitchen cabinets, and custom kitchen cabinets. Stock cabinets are those mass-produced cabinets you can find in furniture stores. They are made and ready to be installed once you buy and bring them home. The style, size, color, and finishing are fixed. In the other words, what you see is what you get. These kitchen cabinets are practical as they are ready stock and all you have to do is buy and install them once you get home. They are usually cheaper too as they are mass-produced and you do not have many options regarding their features.
Semi-custom kitchen cabinets are cabinets that are available before customers order them, but the customers still have the freedom to decide the size, trims, moldings, and finishes based on their own preferences. The basic design is ready and prepared. However, they are not fully done so you can still modify them to suit your kitchen especially in terms of size and color.
