Kitchen Storage Options
Cabinets are the priciest part of remodeling a kitchen. Our experts explain your choices.
High Quality Kitchen Cabinets
The most expensive element of kitchen design and construction are the cabinets. A good rule of thumb, the experts say, is to buy the best affordable quality at the beginning. Be sure to advance-order the cabinets before any construction is started.
There are some differences in cabinetry styles:
Stock cabinets range in price from $75 to $250 per lineal foot. To customize this cabinetry style on a tight budget, consider varying the heights of the cabinets, as well as the door styles (considering glass-front doors or a wine rack).
Semi-custom cabinets offers a larger selection of sizes and options. The unexposed sides are often particle board, with the doors being more expensive (cherry, oak, mahogany, etc.).
Custom cabinets give exactly what you're looking for when it comes to cabinetry. There's no need to spend a fortune if you have a solid design, but the sky's the limit on custom cabinetry when it comes to budgeting.
Custom cabinets can range from $300 to $1,200 per lineal foot. That cost allows the customer to modify and add features as desired, including stained glass doors, wine racks, plate racks and special lighting.
Most often, a carpenter is hired for cabinet installation, but depending on a your skill level, it might be something you'd want to tackle.
