How to Offset the Cost of Custom Kitchen Cabinets

Because their kitchens are oddly built or they have very specific needs for their kitchen space, many people opt for custom kitchen cabinets. The kitchen is the heart of the home for some families. If this sounds familiar, you've probably already tried to fit your family's life into the cabinets that came with your home. It can be a real pain!

Custom cabinets, on the other hand, can be quite expensive compared to stock kitchen cabinets. This is due to the fact that, in addition to paying for the specific building materials you desire, you must also pay for the hours spent on the construction project. There is no such thing as a free carpenter or cabinet designer! Then, of course, you'll have to pay for someone to install your custom kitchen cabinets, and custom cabinetry can be more difficult to install than stock cabinetry.


There are, of course, ways to reduce the cost of having custom kitchen cabinets made for you:


  • Limit your custom cabinetry to one or two pieces - Many families find that stock cabinets will suffice if they have a custom kitchen storage cabinet built that will house all of the oddly shaped items or serve as a pantry, freeing up a lot of storage space for other items. Building just one or two cabinets is much less expensive than building an entire set from scratch.

  • on some of the work yourself! - Why not build your own custom cabinets and kitchen storage cabinet set if you know how to build things and have some carpentry experience? You can save a lot of money by building your own custom cabinets; all you have to do is pay for the materials!

  • Hire a student - Students studying to be carpenters, designers, or contractors will often gladly assist you in putting together and installing custom kitchen cabinets for a fraction of the cost. The work they do on your house will help them build their resumes, and if they do a good job, you can later serve as a reference for them!

  • Request a discount or a trade-in - Custom kitchen cabinet designers are sometimes willing to trade their services for other services or goods. You could, for example, offer to run advertising for the cabinet maker in exchange for a discount if you have a website. You might be able to trade out your services in exchange for a lower out-of-pocket cost for your custom storage cabinet if you own a business. Be inventive!

While having custom kitchen cabinets costs more, the benefits of having them far outweigh the cost. After all, don't you want cabinets that are tailored to your kitchen and your way of life?
