Have you been shopping for kitchen cabinetry and been dissatisfied with the selection of the big box stores and import cabinet dealers? Well perhaps you should really take a close look at considering custom built kitchen cabinets as an option for your kitchen remodel project. Here I will discuss some of the advantages and disadvantages of both stock and custom cabinetry. Stock Kitchen Cabinetry What are stock kitchen cabinetry? Stock kitchen cabinets are cabinetry that are pre-built to a specific size and then resold by a cabinetry dealer. Stock cabinets are typically produced in 2 inch increments. In some basic kitchen layouts such as an L shaped kitchen you can lay cabinets out without much problem.
Purchasing Cabinets There are different tiers on purchasing cabinets too. You save money by assembling pre-cut parts from the manufacturer. Since cabinets will be the focal point of your kitchen, you may prefer to have assembled cabinets that are installed by the dealer. The following descriptions will help you make this decision. RTA or Ready-to-Assemble is provided by the cabinet manufacturer. If the manufacturer doesnt incur the labor expense to assemble the cabinet, he will pass this savings on to you. If you are going to use RTA cabinets to cut down on the expenses, you need to find your cabinets at the beginning of your project. You need time to assemble them and ready to install after installing the flooring, painting, papering are complete.
Cost Each type of cabinet has a general budget that you can expect. Below are more details on each type and the expected price range for 10 x 10 standard cabinets. RTA cabinets are the least expensive. The frameless box and doors will be ¾ inch melamine and the drawers will have metal sides. Since you will be doing the installation, the cost of these is very low at approximately $70.00 per linear foot or $700.00 for your 10 x 10 standard. Stock cabinets have a major price increase with improved materials and they will be delivered and installed. The wood is generally ¾ inch hard board face frame and ½ inch particle board sides with hard board framed doors. Since you have a few more choices on finishes or stains, the price can range from $360 to $432 per linear foot or $3,600 to $4,320 for the standard measurements.
Varieties of Bathroom Linen Cabinets These cabinets are available in various designs and sizes to fit your bathrooms. For those who wish to give their bathrooms a modern look, smaller cabinets with more space is available and for those who prefer traditional lifestyle and choose not to make the place look stuffy antique style cabinets are available. You can store more than just linens with proper cabinets that are functional. There are a few linen cabinets that could fit in narrow places such as hallway and passages leading to the bathrooms with no extra space.
