  • Kitchen Cabinets: The decision about the desired kitchen cabinet material, is probably the most important choice, since it will determine the style and overall appearance of our clients’ custom kitchens. The choice of custom cabinet materials, like wood, glass, lacquer or laminate will depend on your taste, but also on your budget, since there are significant differences depending on which and how many kitchen materials you choose. Once, the material choices are made, the finishes, like glossy versus matte, and cabinet color choices can be made, same as the decisions regarding the kitchen layout, the deepness of your cabinets and how you would like to arrange your kitchen triangle, so to make things within your kitchen easy to reach for a seamless flow within your typical kitchen and cooking behaviors.
  • Kitchen Storage Space: Depending on how often and much you cook within your custom kitchen, we will consider extra storage space, through kitchen drawers, pantries, kitchen island storage space or Lazy Suzan kitchen corner design solutions. You want to be sure to know which of these spaces have a mainly functional use, versus shall act as a design element. Depending on the purpose and your wishes, we can choose transparent, exposed kitchen cabinets, shelves and upper cabinets, or use proper non-transparent cabinet doors and design solutions that can be used for spices, plates, bowls, glasses or any other type of kitchen items.
  • Kitchen Features:

Custom Cabinet Categories

Overall, our American and Italian kitchen cabinets at Modiani Kitchens in NJ fall into one of the following two categories:

  1. Custom Kitchen Cabinets: Kitchens that are custom built according to our clients’ specifications. Most of our clients ask us to design custom cabinets for their specific interior spaces, tastes and requirements, making sure they integrate 100% seamlessly into their interior spaces fulfilling all of their custom design requirements.
  2. Semi-Custom Kitchen Cabinets: Kitchen cabinetry that meets standard specifications of most classic kitchens and offers a range of additional design options in terms of sizing and placement of the kitchen. They are made to meet average specifications that fit most kitchens with certain customization options in terms of sizing and placement. This means that semi-custom, also known as semi-stock kitchen lines may only be available in specific colors or cabinet finishes, or that desired moldings, engravings, cabinet handles or related design elements may only have certain, limited customization options, albeit at a slight cost advantage.

Differentiation To Stock Cabinets

In contrast to our custom and semi-custom kitchen cabinets we offer at Modiani Kitchens, there are certain kitchen designers that offer so-called stock cabinetry that is mass produced and doesn’t consider individual kitchen specifications, which is why it is not part of our kitchen offer at Modiani Kitchens. While our custom cabinets at Modiani Kitchens are constructed when ordered and typically hand-crafted, stock cabinets, are pre-made and stored, ready for delivery upon order. Because stock cabinets are considered the more budget-friendly option when it comes to kitchen cabinetry, they are made of materials that are much lower in quality than those used in custom cabinets. Therefore, although custom cabinets may cost more upfront, they are usually a more solid long-term investment. In the opinion of most kitchen designers, custom cabinets are ultimately the best option. Also, a professionally designed kitchen is a huge benefit as far as home value. What do you need for your specific cooking and kitchen needs? Everyone’s different, and one of the best places in the home to create custom features is the kitchen.

Built According To Your Specifications

Our custom kitchen cabinets are always and without exception built to your individual specifications, which means that our design team takes a special focus on the cabinet sizing, so our designs perfectly integrate into your kitchen space. In stock and semi-stock cabinets, if a piece doesn’t quite fit in your kitchen, a placeholder may be worked into the overall cabinet design process. That placeholder will have the appearance of being a cabinet but will actually be a facade. With custom cabinetry, you will get cabinets that are built for your specific custom interiors, meaning that no space will be wasted. The truth is, when it comes down to it, custom cabinetry is just better made and will have a better overall appearance than stock cabinetry. Installing custom cabinetry will allow you to create more efficiency in your kitchen space and will do wonders for the overall design appearance of the space.

Custom Kitchen Cabinet Materials

All of Modiani’s custom and semi-custom kitchen cabinets, which can be explored at our boutique style kitchen showroom in Englewood, NJ are custom made when ordered. They are usually custom produced according to your individual specifications, or may even be hand-crafted, depending on your requirements, both our fully and semi-custom cabinets. In contrast to stock cabinets, which are being mass produced and are hence lower in cost, our custom kitchen cabinets at Modiani Kitchens are of the highest quality, using the best possible kitchen materials and production techniques. These custom kitchen materials typically include high-end cabinet finishes including real wood finishes, like oak, walnut or teak wood, lacquer or ceramic. These kitchen materials can also be combined with different, slightly less costly materials, like glass, steel or laminate either for functional, cost or design purposes. While custom kitchen cabinets usually cost more upfront, they are of higher quality, will suit your design needs better, and tend to be the more solid long-term investment, especially if you are the owner of a high-end property or apartment.

Personalized Kitchen Cabinets

As our custom kitchen cabinets are built according to your specifications, we can create kitchen designs, layouts and cabinetry according to your individual wishes and specifications. This means that you will get cabinets that are built for your individual kitchen space, hence perfectly integrating into your space, your habits and desires. The look and feel of a kitchen space is largely defined by the elements that make it up, which are usually the kitchen cabinets, countertop and appliances. For the cabinetry, more so than for the countertop and kitchen appliances, an opportunity exists to create a space with a great deal of character and personality as well as productivity and storage. Your personalized kitchen will be beautiful and fit your specific needs, which will make this all-important space of the house one of your favorite rooms to be in. From cooking meals to entertaining guests, we all know how important a beautiful and functional kitchen is.

Frameless Vs. Face-Framed Cabinets

Our custom kitchen cabinets at Modiani Kitchens come in two major variations, frameless and face-framed cabinets. Frameless construction cabinets are made individually, like individual boxes, and are situated with a small gap between them. Face-framed cabinets, on the other hand, are set in a wooden frame upon which kitchen cabinet doors are placed. Face-framed cabinets are considered more common in the United States, while frameless cabinets are more characteristic for European style kitchens. Depending on your kitchen cabinet material, finish and design choices, our kitchen designers will be happy to assist you with the right choice of cabinet frames, if any at all.
