Kitchen Cabinets Direct From Manufacturer

When you’re renovating your kitchen, it’s easy to fall in love with all the shiny, expensive appliances and fixtures. But there’s a chance that one major one part of that dream kitchen might not get the true attention it needs: your cabinets.

Focus on Quality and Design for Your Kitchen Cabinets

With custom cabinets, you can make your home into what you want it to be. Whether you want to have a professional kitchen or a more relaxed atmosphere, custom cabinets let you do this.

If you’re planning to remodel your just updating kitchen design, you may be considering having custom cabinets made. Although this option is more expensive than buying kitchen cabinets ready-made from a store, it gives you the satisfaction of knowing your cabinets are unique to your home.

Is it Cheaper to Build or Buy Cabinets?

That really depends on your skills. Especially today with wood prices going through the roof, working directly with a manufacturer can save you time and money. 

What about wholesale manufacturers or a “factory direct” company?

It’s counterintuitive, but it’s often cheaper to have a manufacturer build your own custom cabinetry rather than buy them from a big box store. That’s because it’s harder to find solid wood in the exact size and design you need from a the HomeDepots and Lowe’s of the world. When you custom build your own through a manufacturer, you can create exactly what you want, from the colors, grains, and cuts, to the fit and finish of the handles and pulls.

Buying cabinets is often thought of as a more cost-efficient option than having them built, but that doesn’t always turn out to be the case. Some cabinet manufacturers like to claim that they are a wholesale kitchen cabinet supplier, but it usually boils down to one of two scenarios. 1. They are deeply discounting their base cabinet options to get you in the door for an upsell, or 2. they are making poor quality cabinets as “wholesale”.

Why not just go to Ikea?

Unlike a lot of stock cabinet manufacturers, Ikea is a household name in furniture and is often the first place people turn when they’re looking to redecorate. But is it worth all the hype? Cost-wise, maybe: Ikea’s cabinets are cheap and require you to self-assemble, but the company has been producing them for decades. There are a few things to keep in mind…

One, Ikea’s stock cabinet offerings are often “as is” and may not be perfect.

Two, Ikea cabinetry is designed to be easily replaceable; as a result, they don’t use solid wood and are built with cheaper materials and thinner walls than normal cabinets.

Three, Ikea cabinets aren’t exactly customizable, so you’re stuck with what they have, they’re not even “semi custom cabinets”.

All in all, if you’re on a strict budget, think assembled cabinets are too easy, and have the extra time and skills, they may be an option. But don’t expect the quality, the customer care, or the level of customization you’ll receive if you decide to work with Metropolitan instead!
