Built-In Cabinets vs. Portable Cabinets

T.L. King designs both "built-in" and "portable" cabinet pieces. Please read the differences between each type of cabinet design.

What are Built-In Cabinets?

Built-in cabinets actually become part of your home. The piece meets the surrounding walls and sometimes the ceiling. The mouldings are joined to the existing mouldings in your home. It is not designed to be moved to another room or to another house. Built-in cabinets give a room a classic and settled feel. It is often used in recessed spaces and for library walls.

What are Free Standing Cabinets?

Our unique portable design resembles a "built-in" but is more versatile. It is constructed of several separate pieces that are joined together with special features so they appear as one large piece of cabinetry.

Portable cabinets are designed to be moved to another room if your needs change and can be taken with you if you move to another house. Because it does not require installation into your home, it is less costly than built-in furniture.
