Custom cabinets are cabinets that are specially made and they contain plod, you choose your style, finish and the type of wood you want. This type of cabinet can be very expensive. Semi-custom cabinets are made from wood and you have more choices, varieties, styles and finishes. Stock cabinets are made from particle board and they come in limited styles and colors.
