The Cost of Kitchen Cabinets
No matter how much you love the kitchen cabinets you have selected and besides the fact that you already envisioned the first Christmas dinner in your new kitchen, there is one thing that can make you part ways with your ideal cabinetry: the price. There is no easy way to break down the cost of kitchen cabinets because there are multiple components that together can either raise or lower the price. You can pick the most basic cabinet and begin to add in organizers, moldings, and expensive hardware, and this cabinet may run you more of a cost that the most elaborate door style with nothing extra.
There is a list of things that directly affect the price of your cabinetry. Wood species, door style, finish, and construction options all correlate with the pricing. There are also the internal structures that can raise your cost substantially such as Lazy Susans or organizing roll out trays. While the aesthetics and functionality of your kitchen are extremely important you must ensure that you are also being cost effective.
To help save money you need to weigh out what are important features to have in your new kitchen. To some it may be the crown molding build up to the ceiling while others may need a roll out garbage can cabinet. Keep in mind that your kitchen needs to be storage efficient, aesthetically pleasing, represent your taste, and keep your costs as low as possible while receiving a high quality product.
Looking to purchase cabinets online is also an easy way to save money on your kitchen cabinets. Internet dealers may be able to supply the same cabinet lines as the home centers or showrooms, and if they do not offer the exact product they may offer something very similar or even better. The internet dealers are able to cut the prices of their products while the quality remains due to low over head costs.
Something else that can ensure less dollars being spent is purchasing unfinished cabinetry. Unfinished cabinets can be installed as such or you can finish them yourself. With some wood paint or stains you can personalize your kitchen even more.
Your ideal kitchen does not need to cost you an arm and a leg, but it can. To make sure you are getting the quality for the best price be educated on the options available to you.
