When you’re replacing or building your kitchen cabinets, you’re looking at something that will sit in your kitchen for decades to come. It’s not something you want to get wrong as if you end up with something you don’t like, you’ll have to look at it every morning for the foreseeable future or pay more money to have it fixed. How can you prevent this from happening? By choosing your manufacturer with care. Here’s how to tell if a Durban cupboard manufacturer will disappoint you or if you’ll end up with the quality cabinetry you deserve.
A quality manufacturer will know that no two kitchens are alike and that you can’t mass produce one size or type of cabinet to save money. The right manufacturer will come to your home and measure your space to custom create ones that meet your requirements. Always check to see if a manufacturer offers this or you’ll have to find someone to cut your cabinets to size – or do it yourself.
Imported products aren’t necessarily poor quality, but they do make the process of creating kitchen cabinets lengthier and more expensive than it needs to be. If your manufacturer uses imported parts, they’ll have to pass this cost on to you, and you’ll also have to deal with waiting weeks or even months to have your orders arrive. As the exchange rate is constantly fluctuating, what you’re quoted on at the beginning of a project might change at the end. It’s best to opt for a manufacturer based in the country who have their own factory.
Be wary of a company that produces cabinets – but has no showroom to give you an idea of what they look like. If a company offers installation, there’s no excuse for this. You need to be able to see the parts you’re ordering come to life and what your final product will look like. A showroom will show you the different finishes, colours and fixtures available so you won’t have to use your imagination to envision what would look best in your home.
These are just three things that make a cupboard manufacturer worth your while. The best way to put your mind at ease concerning any Durban manufacturer is to contact them directly and ask them any questions you may have. Cupboard Value can assist you with this, so contact us today.
