How do the costs of custom cabinets vary from the price of stock cabinets? And is the price difference really worth it?
Here are two of the most commonly asked questions we get here at Kitchens and Baths Unlimited when our clients are starting to put their remodeling budget together. You won't be surprised to learn that in general, stock cabinets are the cheapest, semi-custom are the next rung up the price ladder and fully-custom cabinets are usually the most expensive. However, there are always exceptions, especially when you are budgeting between semi-custom and custom cabinetry.
There are cases where a cabinet design by a high-quality cabinet shop will be cheaper or comparable to semi-custom, depending on the line you are looking at. The size of your kitchen and your individual "bells and whistles" are often the determining factor.
