There are three ways to buy kitchen cabinets: stock, semi-custom and custom. 
 
  • Stock cabinets are made in a factory in standard sizes, finishes, types of wood, and design. You will choose the wood, color and design you want, and the cabinets will be delivered to you ready to install or ready for you to assemble and install. Stock cabinets are almost always the lowest cost option for your kitchen remodel.

  • Semi-custom cabinets give you some additional choices about wood used, finishes, designs, sizes, etc. They will be cut to your specifications and delivered to you to assemble and install. Semi-custom cabinets represent the middle of the cost range.
  • Custom cabinets will be built of the wood you choose in your kitchen. They will be finished and have door design of your choice. You will be able to have cabinets that are not of standard size, and you can design specialty cabinets that will meet your needs. Because they are built to unique specifications and built on site, they will be the most expensive.

The main function of kitchen cabinets is storage. As you plan the layout of your kitchen and the position of cabinets, you will want to be sure you are positioning the right size and shape cabinets in key locations, such as deeper and taller cabinet sections near the oven/stove for convenience and accessibility. For example, you will probably want to keep pots and pans near the cooking area of the new kitchen.
 
As you consider kitchen cabinet cost and decide how customized your cabinets will be, it is also worth the time to investigate cabinet inserts that provide organization and access to the items you store in them. For example, a deep corner cabinet for large pots and pans can be hard to live with when you want the items in the back corner. But by installing a lazy Susan or a set of curved shelves attached to the cabinet door, you can have easy access to everything. Cabinet inserts can be installed in almost any type of cabinet you choose. These organization and accessibility devices can add cost, but the cost will probably be worth the ease of access.
