Kitchen Cabinet Installation Cost

There are several important factors that will impact the cost of kitchen cabinet installation. Use the list below to help you get a better idea of how much your cabinet project will cost.

1. Geographic location. Your geographic location will impact the cost of installing your kitchen cabinets. If you live in a large metropolitan area where the cost of living is high, you should expect to pay a little more.

2. Size of kitchen. What type of kitchen do you have? Do you have a small galley kitchen or a large open kitchen? Will there be an island? The size of your kitchen will likely determine the number of cabinets needed. Most contractors will base their quote on the linear footage of cabinetry required. Wall cabinets. Base cabinets. Is there an island?

3. Just installation? Have you already purchased the cabinets? Are you just looking for an installer? Most contractors will charge an hourly rate for this type of cabinet installation.

4. Stock cabinets vs. Custom cabinets. There are several types of cabinets to choose from: 1) stock cabinets, 2) semi-custom cabinets, and 3) custom cabinets.

Stock cabinets are the most affordable option. They can purchased from a local home improvement store like Home Depot or Lowe’s. However, the selection of sizes and styles will be most limited.

Semi-custom cabinets will have a slightly higher price per linear foot. These cabinets can be ordered in a number of different shapes, sizes, and colors.

Custom cabinets are the gold standard.Custom cabinets will be the most expensive option because a local contractor or cabinetmaker will create them from scratch. However, you will have ultimate control over the look and feel of your cabinetry. You get to create your dream kitchen, picking the exact layout, size, shape, color, door style, and hardware that you want. A kitchen designer can help guide you through this process.

5. Cabinet material. Wood cabinets are the most popular choice. They come in many different varieties (or species of wood), including hickory, pine, oak, birch, maple, and cherry. Exotic woods will be more expensive. If you ever grow tired of the look of your wood cabinets, they can be sanded down and refinished. If wood cabinets are a little out of your budget, Thermofoil and laminate cabinets tend to be a bit cheaper.

6. Cabinet finish. Wood cabinets come in a number of different finishes. The cabinets can be painted, stained, or distressed. Specialty finishes may increase the cost of installation.

7. Cabinet organization. While basic shelving is often included in the cost of the cabinets, any additional cabinet organization will add to the cost of your project. Installing a lazy susan or any slide-out shelving will increase the cost of cabinet installation.

8. Hardware. Basic hardware (pulls, knobs, latches, and hinges) should be included in the cost estimate. However, there are many different materials to choose from, ranging from oil-rubbed bronze and brushed nickel to plastic or chrome pieces. Upgraded hardware will increase the cost of your project.

9. Soft close doors and drawers. In order to prevent drawers and doors slamming, special “soft close” hinges can be installed. However, this added convenience will not be included in the standard installation cost.

10. Door style. There are many different door styles available. Do want traditional shaker cabinets? Or, are you looking for more of a modern, frameless style? Highly decorative doors will be slightly more expensive. Additionally, doors with glass inserts can be quite pricey.

11. Trim and moldings. Decorative trim and cabinet moldings are not typically included in the cost of installation. However, many contractors will install these for an additional cost.

12. Countertop installation. Installing countertops will increase the cost of your kitchen remodeling project. There are many options to choose from, including 1) granite, 2) quartz, 3) laminate, 4) concrete, 5) butcher block or 6) marble countertops.
