What Is The “Basic Kitchen Price?”

When you visit our website to browse our kitchen cabinets, you’ll see “Basic Kitchen Price” below each finish. You may notice the price varies by kitchen cabinet finishes and you may be wondering why. Simply put, some materials and finishes are just more expensive than others, and we offer price points to fit most every budget. Of course, pricing also depends on the square footage of your kitchen, and whether or not you choose ready to assemble or pre-assembled quality cabinets.

As a general starting point, our Basic Kitchen Price is based on a total of 20 feet of wall space. This type of pricing is a common method used by kitchen cabinet retailers to help customers gauge which cabinets cost less and which cost more. With that said, our Basic Kitchen Price includes the following standard features:

  • Soft closing drawers and doors
  • Dovetail joints on drawers
  • Six-way adjustable sealed hinges
  • Solid plywood construction
  • Solid wood door frame

Adding In The Extras

Once you select the style and finish of all wood cabinetry for your home renovation project plan and unique budget, it’s time to add customized features and accessories, like glass front doors and cabinet molding, knobs and pulls, countertops, and kitchen sinks and hoods, to name a few. When it comes to pricing these extras, the cost will vary. For example, our cabinet knobs start as low as $3 a piece, and it goes up from there based on the style and specs you choose. Rest assured, we offer something for every budget!

When you take advantage of our free room design service, our designers (link to What To Expect When You Work With Our Designers) will help bring your new room to life, with a custom layout and photorealistic renderings. We will also put together an itemized shopping cart for you to review. If you aren’t comfortable with the cost, we will try our best to make adjustments to fit within your unique budget.

Ways To Save Even More

For decades, it’s been widely thought that kitchens cost a fortune and you only update your space once every 30 years. With the rise of channels like HGTV and DIY Network, and popular shows about flipping houses and remodeling, many homeowners now know it’s wise to create a home renovation project plan that keeps their important investment up to date. But if you’re still not sold on investing in your kitchen, here are a few more ways to save even more.

If you love a good DIY project, purchase ready to assemble cabinets from The RTA Store. Ready to assemble cabinets will reduce the price about 30% compared to our pre-assembled cabinets. The quality is the same, but when you opt for ready to assemble cabinets, you do some of the work yourself to save more. It’s simple! All you need are some basic tools and our easy-to-follow assembly instructions.

By ordering from our wide selection of stock cabinets (the cabinets come as seen on our site) you can save even more than ordering custom cabinets. Our stock cabinets feature quality construction and desirable extras come standard. They also have a faster lead time, so your home renovation project can move quickly with stunning results. Or choose builder grade for the lowest price point possible!
