Cheap Kitchen Cabinets

We receive many negative reviews on KitchenCabinetsReviews.com relating to quality and we thought we would take some time to go over some of the things to look for when buying cabinets.

Price is always a consideration, but we don't think it should be the only one. You might be renovating to sell a property or you might be renovating to enjoy the benefits and comfort of a new kitchen. Either way, your budget should allow for quality cabinets. If you opt for the cheapest thing you can buy, you will be sacrificing more than just quality. The lesser expensive cabinet brands will use thinner materials to cut costs and their finishing process's most likely aren't KCMA certified. This could lead to sagging shelves, poor finish consistency and a general lack of durability. That is from the quality side, but you will also miss out on door style selection and finish choices that you will find from KCMA certified manufacturers. So when you are shopping, and you buy the least expensive cabinet available, your expectations for longevity and quality should be very low and we would expect your reviews to be less than positive. We recommend that your budget for cabinets be a substantial portion of your remodeling budget so that you end up with cabinets that you will love, from a manufacturer who builds quality products so that you will leave positive reviews for your cabinets.

Beyond price, there are other factors to consider. Warranty is one. Some makers include 5 year warranties, others limited lifetime. The 5 year warranties are generally from makers that produce great cabinets, but if you plan to be in your home for the rest of your life, you might want a brand that offers a limited lifetime warranty. Just as with price, if you confirm KCMA certification of the brands you are considering will give you confidence that you are buying a cabinet that will last.

Options are another factor to consider when buying cabinets and additional options can quickly add to the cost of your cabinets. We suggest you find a brand that offers the options that you are looking for and making sure that you are not paying for additional options that you don't need. If you give a designer your budget, they may add cabinet options that get the cost to your budget, but without them you could save hundreds of dollars. This can make inexpensive cabinets very expensive. In some cases it is even cheaper to buy cabinet accessories separately from the cabinets. Please do research on this before you buy and make sure you know what cabinets and options are specified before buying your cabinets.
