|5 Ways to Save Money on Cabinetry |
Use these tips to cut down on your cabinetry costs
1: Choose oak or hickory instead of maple or cherry. More common wood types typically equal a lower price tag.
2: Pick a simple door and drawer style over an elaborate design. Instead, spend your money on storage features (think roll-out shelves) that will make your kitchen more efficient.
3: Choose a standard stain or finish. Paints, glazes, antiquing and distressing cost more.
4: Opt for fewer cabinets in larger sizes. Even though they may be smaller, incorporating more cabinets will be more expensive.
5: Go with standard overlay doors and hinges, rather than full-overlay cabinets (where the hinges are concealed).
