You may not realize the amount of markup placed on solid wood kitchen cabinets by retail home improvement stores. In fact, many people do not, and they only take the time to compare costs from one home improvement store to another, as well as check out the costs from local design centers. In the end, they make the mistake of purchasing the cabinets from the retail store that gave them the best quote.
But there are several items which are not included with the cost of solid wood kitchen cabinets. First, if you are hiring a contractor, you have to add their cost to install your cabinets. Next, most styles do not include some of the hardware, like handles and wall mounting screws. You also have to remember to add this to your total costs. Taking these expenses into consideration will give you a better overall picture of exactly how much it costs to complete your project.
Now, before you go off and sign a purchase agreement, take the time to compare the costs on our solid wood kitchen cabinets at Best Online Cabinets. For a basic style cabinet in a standard 10 by 10 kitchen, you will notice our costs are around $2,500 for everything you need to complete the project — except, of course, for handles, wall mounting screws and tools. Go pull the quote you got from your local store and compare the costs. It is easy to spend $10,000 or more for the same style. With the extra $7,500 you save, it should more than cover the costs to hire a contractor, as well as cover the money needed for mounting screws and handles.
