Taking the time to compare your costs between different suppliers of kitchen cabinets is always a good idea. You would not go to just one car dealer when you wanted to purchase a new vehicle. Instead, you would end up comparing costs from several dealers to get the best price. The same is true with new cabinets. There are local retail design centers, home improvement stores, and online wholesalers, like us, here at Best Online Cabinets, to compare costs.
There are also differences in the way the kitchen cabinets are delivered between your available sources. Most design centers and home improvement stores sell you the cabinets preassembled. All you have to do is mount them to the walls. However, the downside for this option is the amount it adds to the cost of the cabinets. Instead of paying several thousand dollars more for preassembled cabinets, you could purchase ready to assemble (RTA) discount cabinets directly from our online store.
RTA cabinets arrive with all of the required real wood pieces, equipment, and hardware to put them together, except door handles and tools. The amount you save with RTA cabinets is rather substantial. For instance, for a basic cabinet design in a standard size kitchen, you can easily spend $10,000 or more for preassembled cabinets from a local supplier. The same style, directly from us, only costs around $2,500, because you are not paying the added labor expense for assembling the cabinets. With the amount you save, you have enough to hire your own contractor to put them together and can still come out saving money, just on the price of the cabinets, alone.
