How Much Do Kitchen Cabinets Cost?
The cost to replace kitchen cabinets
in an average-sized kitchen with about 25 linear feet of cabinets is around $3,000 to $4,000 for stock cabinets , $6,000-$9,000 for semi-custom cabinets, and $15,000 to $20,000 and up for custom-made cabinets.
It is important to note that just because cabinets are "stock" as opposed to custom, doesn't mean they are lower quality. It simply means they come in standard sizes and are constructed with common materials.
The amount you'll pay for your kitchen cabinets also depends on whether you'll replace, refinish, or resurface your old cabinets. If your cabinets are in good condition but look outdated, you can save a lot of money by just giving them a facelift.
A cheaper option than replacing is refacing or resurfacing. There are several options including wood veneers and laminate surfacing, and the average cost of materials is around $1,500 for basic materials (25 linear feet) or $3,500 when using higher quality materials for refacing. Factor in the cost for labor when budgeting.
Finally, you can choose to simply refinish your existing cabinets with new stain or paint and hardware. This is the most cost-effective option, costing homeowners an average of $3,000 for 25 linear feet of cabinets. However, it is a job best left to a professional; mistakes can ruin your cabinets and result in you having to replace them.
