  1. Buy cabinets wholesale directly from the manufacturer. In most cases you'll place the order online with the distributor and the cabinets will drop ship directly from the kitchen cabinet manufacturer to you. Some kitchen cabinet manufacturers also allow you to order directly from them to avoid the middleman completely. In many cases these kitchen cabinets are discontinued or clearance items.
  2. Wholesale cabinets may ship unassembled or unfinished. Most wholesale kitchen cabinets are not ready to install as shipped. Instead they are packaged ready to assemble (RTA). This means you have to assemble the cabinet box, shelves, and drawers yourself or hire someone to do it for you. The cabinet surfaces may be finished at the factory or they may be unfinished for you to paint or stain as you like. Find out before you order.
  3. Figure installation expenses into your final cost. When your wholesale kitchen cabinets arrive you will need to have them installed. Depending on your skill level you may be able to do the work yourself or you may need to hire a local contractor to complete the installation. If you plan to hire a contractor, make sure to include that cost in your budget. You will also need to find a place to store your cabinets before installation.

While buying kitchen cabinets wholesale is a great way to save money, it does have drawbacks: Your choices will be more limited than if you purchased custom cabinets. Most wholesale cabinets come only in standard sizes with limited options. Brand selection may also be limited but, if you shop around, you should be able to find wholesale kitchen cabinets from top manufacturers such as American Woodmark, Armstrong, KraftMaid, or Thomasville.
