Types of Kitchen Cabinets For Your Remodel

Outdated, damaged or flat-out ugly cabinets can sabotage an otherwise-beautiful kitchen. Your new kitchen cabinets should be the focal point of your kitchen remodel. After all, you and your family members will open, close and look at your kitchen cabinets every single day for decades to come. Furthermore, the kitchen is the nucleus of the home. This is a communal space in which family, friends, and guests gather to cook, eat, and interact with one another.

You and your loved ones deserve the best kitchen cabinets on the market. However, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Certain kitchen cabinets will mesh with your kitchen aesthetics better than others. The quality of your kitchen remodel will prove to be a powerful marketing tool when the day comes to put your home up for sale so do not skimp on the kitchen cabinets!

Kitchen Cabinet Types

The primary types of kitchen cabinets are stock cabinets, custom cabinets, semi-custom cabinets, refinished cabinets and RTA cabinets. Homeowners should give serious consideration to each of these kitchen cabinets. Review the choices in-depth, give each some thought and you will eventually pinpoint the perfect new cabinets for your kitchen.

Keep in mind your kitchen cabinets are the room’s first impression. If the kitchen cabinets do not jive with the rest of the kitchen, look or feel cheap or have any other flaws, you will end up spending the next years or decades regretting your decision. Everything from looks to price and surface texture matter a great deal. There is nothing wrong with taking your time, reviewing the many different types of kitchen cabinets and going over all the details before making a commitment.

The Most Basic Kitchen Cabinets are Worth Serious Consideration

Stock cabinets are comparably simple when pitted against fully customized cabinets, semi-custom cabinets and other varieties. Stock cabinets typically run between $80 and $400. This cabinet type is pre-made and sold in just about every home improvement store. Though stock cabinets will not bust your budget, availability is limited to a few different sizes and designs.

Refinished Cabinets

Refinished cabinets cost a pretty penny yet most homeowners agree they are worth the money. Spend between $1,400 and $3,500 and your kitchen will be highlighted by a lovely set of brand new refinished cabinets. The refinishing process requires the removal, sanding, and staining of drawer doors and fronts.

Semi-Custom Cabinets

Semi-custom cabinets are available in the same size as the stock cabinets detailed above. However, semi-custom cabinets can be detailed if you are willing to spend a bit more. Examples of such details include the expansion or shrinking of cabinet depth and re-sizing door fronts and/or drawers. Plan on spending between a couple hundred dollars and a thousand dollars for your new semi-custom kitchen cabinets.

Fully Customized Kitchen Cabinets

If you would like to design kitchen cabinets exactly as you envision in your mind’s eye, custom kitchen cabinets are for you. It all starts with a standard cabinet. You can add whatever you desire based on your kitchen’s needs. Custom cabinets are comparably expensive yet homeowners who make the investment agree these gorgeous cabinets are well worth it.
