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.

    Is the black a matte or gloss

    • CliqStudios Marketing Reply

      Hello. All of our painted finishes are best described as an eggshell sheen. Definitely not gloss.

    Are any of your cabinets a stain grade, or do you only offer paint?

  6. Carin Snell Reply

    I was really interested in your company but was disappointed to see that you didn’t offer any fun bright colors. We were wanting an avocado green for the lowers or getting them unfinished so we could send to a painter.

    We’re planning on doing a green island. Is it possible to do colors other than the ones you have listed? Or could we get it unpainted and have someone else paint it?

    • CliqStudios Social Media Reply

      At this time we do not offer unpainted cabinets.

    Remodelar la cocina tiene una medida de 6 X 10. Solo me interesa hacer los gabinetes de abajo y ponerle el tope en granito

  12. Beth Philips Reply

    I have been working with a designer and looking at cabinets and colors online for a a couple of months. I have ordered samples in 6 different colors and borrowed my neighbors sample to make sure I got color I want. Today I was told that the color I chose would be a 25% upcharge. It was listed in color choices for my style Austin with no mention of it being so much higher. I chose bright white. I am disappointed that I spent time and money on that color sample without knowing about upcharge. My quote was near 12,000 so 25% surcharge is out of question.
    Very disappointed.
