Cabinet Pricing - How to obtain a quote
Cabinet pricing can vary greatly from company to company. Pricing depends on many
things including materials, the finish, the retailers expenses, the labor involved in the
building process and more. The biggest of these expenses is usually the labor. This is
especially true of custom cabinets.
Pricing varies from job to job. Each individual cabinet is priced differently. For example,
a pantry will cost more than a drawer base, which will cost more than a normal base,
which will cost more than a wall cabinet to fill the same 30 inch space. Each of those
cabinets will then vary in price slightly depending on the syle you choose.
A BALL PARK estimate is about $70-80 a linear foot for our value line, about $100-$120
a linear foot for our premium lines (90% of our sales) and about $220 - $500 a linear foot
for custom. That is not how we price them. Each kitchen is individually designed and
priced. But, it will give you a rough estimate. That number assumes a normal number or
base cabinets, 30" uppers and no special cabinets. That does not include installation.
Kitchens vary from $1000 to well over $25,000 and up. But, the vast majority of the
kitchen we sell are between $2000 and $8000 with most being between $3000 and $5000.
For example, a sample 8 foot kitchen (8 feet of uppers/wall cabinets and 8 feet of
lower/base cabinets costs $1640 in one of our most common styles. If you have 16 feet, it
would be double that with 24 feet being triple.
Though, a better example would be a 24 foot kitchen. Typically, it would have 24 feet of
uppers and only 16 feet of lowers since no lowers cabinets are needed where you have
your stove, dishwasher and fridge. This example would have 40 linear feet and would cost
approximately $4000-4500 in one of our premium lines.
Most changes have a minimal impact. For example, going from 30" uppers to 36" uppers
would increase the price by about $20 to 25 per cabinet (generally about 3 uppers for an 8
foot kitchen). Adding a drawer base would add about $50 to $100 to the price based on
the size. Adding a pantry or oven cabinet has the biggest impact.
Installation cost vary from contractor to contractor. While the big box stores tend to charge
$80 to $90 a cabinet. $50 a cabinet is a more standard price. We do not install. But, we
work very closely with a handful of very carefully picked installers (each has installed
from dozens to hundreds of OUR kitchens). Each does good to very good work. Rates vary
depending on if you want good or very good. But, most are equal to or less than the
