What Do Kitchen Cabinets Cost?

Due to the wide ranging differences in materials and quality, kitchen cabinets cost anywhere from $2,500 to $24,000. However, most new cabinet prices are between $4,000 and $13,000. This wide price range can be divided into three cabinet categories.

Low end of new cabinet costs, often stock or ready-to-assemble cabinets.

The terms stock, semi-custom and custom refer to the manufacturing process of cabinets. Stock cabinets come in set sizes that have no modification options. Custom cabinets are built in dimensions specific to your kitchen and have almost unlimited selections. Semi-custom cabinets fall between stock and custom cabinets. This is because they offer standard sizes that keep prices low and options for modifications.

Remember that stock cabinets from a factory can be better quality than custom cabinets from a neighbor’s garage. If you buy custom cabinets, you are paying for the option to customize them. However, you may or may not need all those choices.

Why Do Cabinet Prices Vary so Widely?

As you decide on cabinets for your kitchen renovation, you may be wondering why cabinet prices vary so widely. Cabinet costs are affected by things like construction, materials, modification options and even where you live and purchase them from.

Determining which cabinets are right for you involves more than just looking at the price tag. Cabinets need to suit your style, provide storage solutions and have durability that fits your lifestyle and home. Make sure the brands you are considering offer all of the options you want. It’s also important to be aware that these features will cost more.

As you set a budget and see the costs of different cabinets, be sure to factor quality into the equation. One cabinet brand may seem like the cost effective choice. However, cabinets of higher quality with more customization options may actually be a better value overall. Learning about how to compare cabinet costs will help you choose the right product.
