Buying Kitchen Cabinets on the Internet
A story about buying kitchen cabinets online from Karen Carrero
As a single working mother, just the thought of home remodeling gave me anxiety. But there comes a time in every home owner’s life when enough is enough, and you have to update your kitchen cabinets. I started my renovation process as anyone else would, searching local showrooms and home centers. My first let down in a series of disappointments came when I found out that most of the local show rooms closed at five. I found it impossible to believe that I would need to take a day off from work or sacrifice my weekend to even browse around.
I gave in to the home centers who promised consumers the world and everything in it. These huge renovation centers assured big savings on quality kitchen cabinetry. That part may have been true, but I might as well have been getting paid for the sale. I did all the measurements and the design layout. With all of my work given to them, the sales person still took so much of my time to just spit out a quote. While the price may have been right, the confidence in my purchase was not. I did not feel certain that all of my needs would have been met by these mega stores.
So Saturday came around, and against my will I woke up with my son and headed to our local cabinet distributor. My mouth fell open as soon as I walked through the door. The displays were breathtaking, exactly what I would love to have in my home. There was personalized attention from the sales staff, and I began to feel sure that I would have someone there every step of the way. And then we began to talk pricing, and just like that, my bubble burst. Not only were the prices out of my budget, they were absolutely ridiculous. I believe the prices need to be this high to cover the owners back end costs, but now I was left again with no outlet to get my kitchen cabinets.
I was beginning to think I was asking for too much: reasonably priced quality kitchen cabinets. I had exhausted all resources I could think of, so I turned to the internet to see if anyone had any advice on where to find such cabinetry. Low and behold I found that I could actually buy kitchen cabinets online. I read article after article and chat room posts about how one can do an entire renovation without ever leaving their home. I became intrigued and started to visit a few of the sites mentioned.
Then I stumbled onto KitchenCabinetKings.com. The website was set up very professionally which gave me initial assurance that this was a legitimate website. I looked around, and there was a wide variety of door styles, wood species, and finishes to choose from. As I began to play around with picking different kitchen cabinetry I realized how easy it was to obtain a quote from this site. As I put different cabinet pieces into my cart, the price changed. I could either upgrade or downgrade and the price would reflect this all with the click of a mouse. I stayed on the site long enough to pick out the style, finish, and construction of my kitchen cabinets (which was about forty five minutes tops). I had all of my pieces in my shopping cart when I realized that things could look completely different in a picture than they would in my kitchen. The let downs continue!
Then I noticed that the website offered samples of the cabinetry that could be delivered to my home. I placed the order and waited the couple days it took to receive my sample. As my first instinct told me, the finish and style not only looked nice in the light of my kitchen but matched my personal style as well. I decided to press on and see if the personal care was present in the internet. I called up KitchenCabinetKings.com service number and spoke to one of the design specialists. There was no rushing me off the phone, and none of my questions went unanswered. By the end of the conversation I had given the design specialist my measurements and I was left with an assurance that I would receive a kitchen layout drawing as soon as possible.
Just as promised I received a layout of my new kitchen cabinets. As any consumer would, I had many questions to ask. I called KitchenCabinetKings.com, and the specialist and I would go over any uncertainties about the cabinetry or the design of the kitchen. Everything was double and triple checked, leaving nothing unnoticed. Once I felt ready to buy my cabinets online, the process was over before I could even say, "buy cabinets online." I literally clicked the buy now button, entered my personal information, and received confirmation of my order. I was able to remodel my kitchen without actually having to leave my existing kitchen.
KitchenCabinetKings.com offered me the low prices of the large home centers and the personal care of the privately owned cabinetry dealers with the convenience of staying at home and doing the remodeling on my own time. I received quality kitchen cabinets that reflected my personal style without breaking my bank.
