Instructions

  1. 1

    Browse through the displays available in each kitchen cabinet company showroom. Looking at cabinets on display, and looking at samples available in the exact style you're interested in, helps you obtain a realistic idea of the way your kitchen will appear upon completion. Compare these samples against each other to help you decide which kitchen cabinet company to go with.

  2. 2

    Compare prices available from each kitchen cabinet company. Even though you shop for similar kitchen cabinets at each company, you may notice a significant price difference. Ask about the cost of delivery, installation and any warranty so you know the full cost you must pay after you make the purchase.

  3. 3

    Ask a representative from a kitchen cabinet company about the difference between stock kitchen cabinets and custom kitchen cabinets for your space during your kitchen cabinet comparison. Stock kitchen cabinets are usually less expensive because manufacturers make them in bulk in generic sizes. Manufacturers build custom kitchen cabinets exclusively for your kitchen, so you can enjoy the features you want and utilise every free space in the kitchen.

  4. 4

    Determine the type of wood each company prefers to use. Natural wood makes a beautiful kitchen cabinet if you want stained kitchen cabinets. If you want painted kitchen cabinets, some companies may recommend you save money by choosing particle board for your cabinets, which looks beautiful when painted.

  5. 5

    Examine the construction of the kitchen cabinets offered by different companies. Look at the way the cabinets attach to each other and to the wall to make sure they're as sturdy as you desire. Concealed hinges means the hinges hide behind the cabinet doors, or you can choose high quality handles and hinges that help add to the decor of your kitchen.

  6. 6

    Try to save money by installing the kitchen cabinets yourself. Ask your sales representative if you can get a discount on your kitchen cabinets if you pick up the cabinets from their warehouse then install them on your own.
