Custom Kitchen Cabinetry Pricing Guide
“How much would new custom kitchen cabinets cost?” is undoubtedly the most common question we receive in our daily business operations.
It is also the most difficult to answer because the pricing is highly dependent on the type of material used, design features, and ultimately the amount of cabinetry required. Without a better idea of how the customer plans to address these questions and a visual inspection of the space, we are always hesitant to give an estimate over the phone or via email. We understand however that people often want to know at least the approximate cost they can anticipate without having to schedule someone to visit their home for pictures and measurements.
The table below will help you achieve this goal by providing pricing based on the “average” layout parameters, standard raised panel door style, and flat side-panels. The Per SqFoot price estimates are inclusive of delivery and installation in Orange and Los Angeles Counties, and provide a very rough guideline for what you can expect.
Use the table to find the appropriate Price Per SqFoot for your project and multiply this number by the total square footage for your kitchen cabinetry. This total square footage of your kitchen cabinets is calculated based on the surface area of the doors and drawer fronts – for the cabinet displayed below the total square footage would be X multiplied by Y and divided by 144:
As an example we can assume Y to be 100 inches and X to be 30 inches, equaling 3,000 square inches. You then divide 150 by 144 to arrive at approximately 21 square feet. Therefore, to build these cabinets using plywood in framed style and natural stained and lacquered doors would cost you 21 times $125 from the table above, or $2,625.
To calculate the approximate cost of your kitchen cabinets, use the same process for all the cabinetry you are considering. The best thing about using this method is that the estimate is much more accurate than other methods of calculating cost because you specifically exclude the areas for the refrigerator, dishwasher, and other appliances.
