Price: How Much Do Cabinets Cost?
Cabinetry may account for half of your kitchen remodel budget.
Your cabinets' door style and color have a major impact on your new kitchen by making the strongest visual statement. They'll also have the most impact on your wallet. Cabinets could account for half the cost of your entire kitchen remodel-a hefty sum that demands careful consideration.
When it comes to cabinetry, price depends on:
Quality of cabinet construction
The number of interior storage options
Door style and finish
The number of cabinets you need
Prepare to Spend
Stock cabinets: $5,000 to $20,000
Semi-custom cabinets: $20,000 to $40,000
Custom cabinets: $40,000+
Be ready to make a compromise here and there. Here's a guide to a few lower-priced cabinet substitutions that will give you a look similar to pricier materials:
Open up your design by removing cabinet doors for attractive open shelving.
Combine a simpler stock cabinet with crown molding.
Vary the heights of your cabinets.
Buy fashionable cabinet hardware.
Substitute maple wood with a cherry-colored stain for more expensive cherry wood.
Instead of paying for removal and installation, tear out old cabinets yourself.
Opt for fewer molding details.
