Custom vs. Semi-custom kitchen cabinets

8 years ago
last modified: 8 years ago

I found semi-custom kitchen cabinets through a cabinet design store that are made in South Dakota that I really like. I also found a local cabinet maker here in the San Francisco Bay area that does beautiful work. I have read that because California has environmental laws in place that prohibit certain types of paint that can be used within this state, the paint isn't as durable as the more "toxic" paint that can be used outside of California. Therefore, the cabinets I would get made in SD, then shipped to California would have a more durable finish. What do you think? Is the cabinet store just trying to sell me their cabinets? Lets say the cost is comparable.
