Different stores carry different brands. Examples below are based on the price of a 30 x 30 inch, double door, upper cabinet:

  • Home Depot's American Classics brand in white satin finish costs roughly $125.00
  • Home Depot's Continental brand is unfinished oak, and runs about $85.00
  • Lowe's Kitchen Classics has a hickory line with 3/4" hardwood doors and face frames and a 3/8" particle board case for around $138.00
  • Ikea's birch cabinet comes in many door styles. Prices vary by style, but are as low as about $115. Assembly service is available.
  • ProBuild, a Western regional chain, carries (among other lines) DeWils custom cabinets with 1/2" plywood cases, solid wood (many species, including bamboo) face fronts and doors, and dovetailed wood doors, for around $525.

The above stores also carry medium-priced lines with options such as glass doors, special hinges, and thicker fiberboard or wood cases.

Local Cabinet Shops

If you're designing your dream kitchen, a local cabinet shop is where to buy your kitchen cabinets. For medium range cabinets, shop bigger stores.

Considering several options takes time, but the style and construction choices will expand your ideas beyond the familiar.
