Do you ever wonder why storage solutions and specialty cabinets have such a big impact on pricing? Some of the price increases come from the labor, but it also has to do with the construction type and quality of each accessory. Cabinet manufacturers across the world use different types of construction based on the quality they want to provide. What you see from one cabinet company may vary to the next because of the cost of materials and labor.

The following percentages are based on a Newport shaker door style painted Mist in 15” base cabinets, an 18” pantry cabinet, and a 36” corner base cabinet.
