How to Find Gorgeous Yet Affordable Kitchen Cabinets
The kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home. It's a gathering place for the family, where meals are made with love, and it's usually one of the main rooms showcased to guests.
It deserves to be a place that you love and are proud of, not one that makes you embarrassed to invite friends over.
Unfortunately, the kitchen tends to be one of the most procrastinated house projects. Most changes made in the kitchen also come with a pretty hefty price tag, and kitchen cabinets usually have the highest price tag of all.
Cabinets are usually responsible for the greatest portion of your remodel budget. Luckily, there are numerous options for affordable kitchen cabinets without sacrificing style.
Keep reading on ways to save money on your kitchen cabinets while still building the kitchen of your dreams!
Make a Budget
Before you even start searching, it's important that you have a plan.
Start by creating a budget. Decide how much you want to or can spend on the total project and then decide how much of your budget you can set aside for cabinets.
Knowing your price range beforehand will help prevent you from overspending and also help you decide what kind of cabinets you are in the market for.
There are generally 3 types of cabinets: stock, semi-custom, and custom. Stock cabinets are the cheapest while custom cabinets are the most expensive.
Select Your Style
After you have a price range in mind, pick your style. It will save you time and effort if you already know what you are looking for as you start to shop.
Decide what kind of faces you want, what you want your hardware to look like, and what color you would like your cabinets to be.
Another good thing to consider is if you want more drawers or shelves. Cabinet shelves tend to be significantly cheaper than drawers and you can save a lot of money in this area.
It's also important to consider what layout you want your cabinets in, the dimensions you need, and what special features you want them to have. All of these things will affect the pricing and are important for getting an accurate estimate.
Most cabinet companies carry very similar style options and dimensions which make comparing prices fairly simple.
Shop 'til You Drop
Now it's time to put in the work. Finding a good deal doesn't come without a little (or a lot) of time and effort.
On the bright side, it pays off (literally!)
Hopefully, your preparations will make this step a little more simple. Stay organized and get complete and detailed estimates from all the companies you are looking in to.
This will help you to really make sure you are getting the best deal out there!
Customize Only When Necessary
Customizing your cabinets can rack the price up quickly. Be careful with custom features, and evaluate whether you really need those upgrades.
Having built-in dividers for your silverware could be really nice, but there are tons of storage solutions you can buy separately that are much more cost effective.
Sometimes custom cabinets are necessary for awkward dimensions where stock cabinets would not fit, in these instances opt to customize only the section that you need.
Find Affordable Kitchen Cabinets at a Wholesaler
Wholesale cabinet companies can save you up to 20% by cutting out the middle man.
Wholesalers have almost unlimited options, so chances are you will easily find what you are looking for.
Often times, cheap kitchen cabinets can mean poor quality. Wholesalers are the perfect balance between quality and price.
Don't Get Rid of Those Old Cabinets Just Yet
One man's trash is another man's treasure!
If your old cabinets are still in decent shape, you may be able to make some money off of them. Avoid using the sledgehammer, and instead, try to list them on local yardsale page or Craigslist.
Lucky for you, there are numberless people out there who are trying to save money just like you.
Cabinet hardware can add some serious style to your kitchen but if you're not careful it can add up quickly.
Make sure to search all the sales you can. You can usually find some pretty incredible deals in the hardware department if you are persistent.
Good hardware can make your cabinets look a lot more expensive than they are, so it will definitely be worth your time and effort.
If completely replacing your cabinets seems to be completely out of your budget, consider giving them a facelift.
Many people will paint their cabinets, but another great option is just replacing the faces.
This is a great way to cut down on your costs, while still getting that "brand new kitchen feel."
Don't Be Afraid to Get Your Hands Dirty
After kitchen cabinets, labor is usually the second greatest expense in a kitchen renovation.
Consider cutting down on costs by doing some of the labor yourself.
We live in the DIY age and there are thousands of videos and articles out there that will teach you anything you want to know about how to install kitchen cabinets.
Don't be afraid of learning some new tricks, it will definitely be worth it!
Kitchen of Your Dreams
Your budget doesn't have to hold you back any longer.
Affordable kitchen cabinets are more accessible than ever. Hard work and a little creativity will not only save you money but give you the kitchen of your dreams.

“When we opened that last long box for the cabinets, the filler boards and touch-up kit was missing. The carton wasn’t damaged at all, so I’m fairly confident that they weren’t lost in-transit unless the carrier repackaged and re-taped the carton and totally fooled me. I called Kenny to see what we needed to do, and he filed a claim with Customer Service and they are sending me new ones. T”
