Options for cheap kitchen cabinets

Just about anyone would like a kitchen full of custom built cabinets, but in a difficult economy it's not a reality for most families. However, that doesn't mean you can't give your kitchen a new look--you just have to find cheap kitchen cabinets to use. Cheap doesn't necessarily mean poor quality. You can often find inexpensive cabinets that look almost as nice as their upper end counterparts--if you know where to look.

Where to find cheap kitchen cabinets that look good

There are many places to find inexpensive cabinets and if you're a DIYer, you might be able to save on installation costs. A contractor may charge about $30 to install each cabinet and that can add up fairly quickly in even a small kitchen. These are the best sources for cheap kitchen cabinets:

  • Major cabinet manufacturers--Many cabinet companies have value priced lines of cabinets that can cost substantially less than their upper end models. The cabinets may not have the features of their higher priced selections, but the manufacturer still ensures they're high quality and attractive in appearance. An example of these cheap kitchen cabinets would be Yorktowne Cabinetry's Silver Construction Line.
  • Ready to assemble (RTA) cabinets--RTA cabinets have to be assembled by the homeowner, but are a good way to save about 30 percent over purchasing already assembled cabinets. If you know how to stain wood, you can even buy unfinished RTA cabinets for additional savings. RTA cabinets can be purchased from online retailers and are available in many of the same woods and finishes as assembled cabinets.
  • Second hand stores--Many large home-builders donate lightly used kitchen cabinets that were switched out of new houses to thrift stores and they can often be purchased for a fraction of their original cost.

Using cheap kitchen cabinets is a good way to remodel your kitchen on a tight budget. If you look in the right places, you shouldn't have to sacrifice quality or appearance.
