Saving on Kitchen Cabinets Made Easy

When it comes to buying cheap kitchen cabinets online shopping has made the whole process that much easier. You can now search online, choose your cabinet style, pick your color and see exactly what you’re getting before you commit to your purchase. Easy as it is to buy kitchen cabinets online, there are certain pitfalls and this article will help you to avoid those and make your shopping experience a good one.

Direct from the manufacturer

When looking online, you are likely to come across four main types of kitchen cabinet: made to order, semi custom, stock cabinets and ready to assemble kitchen cabinets. We’re going to focus primarily on RTA kitchen cabinets since these offer flexibility, variety, and high quality all at an affordable price. Because you are doing the assembly work yourself, you can save as much as 40% off the price of ready assembled cabinets. In addition when you buy online, the stockist has bought direct from the manufacturer avoiding the middleman, and accordingly he can pass these savings on to his customer in the form of discount cabinets.

Compare sites and prices

If you’re looking for kitchen cabinets online it can be a little confusing since so many sites sell the same products at varying prices. It’s important to visit several sites and carefully compare prices. Avoid sites which offer free shipping since there is no such thing. These sites will simply have added on the price elsewhere. Look for a company with longevity that has been successfully trading for over five years. Chose one who is straight forward and transparent with his pricing, if there is any problem these types of companies are more likely to be happy to resolve any issues. Check out customer testimonials for a good indication of their degree of customer service.

Check the specifications

Before choosing your cabinets take a long hard look at the specifications. Ready to assemble cabinets come in all forms and some, such as you may find priced much higher in the big box stores, can actually be quite inferior. Many companies advertise their cabinets as being all wood when in reality the only wood is in the door fronts, which of course is the first part you notice. What is more important is to ensure that the cabinet base is constructed from wood and does not contain any particle board whatsoever, since these are not built to last. Also check out features such as dove tail joints, soft closure and concealed hinges. These are all high end features which can be found in cheaper self assembly cabinets if you know what you’re looking for.

Most kitchen companies will be only too happy to offer a free design service and will also send out sample doors before you place an order. Make use of these services and bear the other points in mind, and this way you will save money and have a high quality kitchen cabinets at a price which fits in with your budget.
