Shopping for Kitchen Cabinet Deals



Right now it is more important than ever to try to save money on home improvement projects while still adding value to your home. Buying solid wood cabinets is easy if you want to go to your local building center or cabinet store and pay retail price, but if your trying to save some money and still have a great product, you will need to look a little deeper than that store. And the very best way to save money and time, and still get a great product is by shopping online. With all of the scams going around, some people may still be hesitant to purchase products online. However, these days shopping online is safe, easy, and above all it can produce products that you would not normally have access to. For example, buying kitchen cabinets from the other side of the country and still getting a great product at a good price.

First of all, the solid wood kitchen is somewhat of an elusive product. There is not really anything out there (in a reasonable or normal price range) that is made of entirely all solid wood. I am sure if you commisioned a carpenter to make you cabinets, he or she could produce a cabinet made entirely of solid wood — fronts, sides, bottoms, and backs but the cost of that kitchen would probably run in excess of $40,000.00 dollars! (Forty Thousand dollars).So the point is that all kitchen cabinets in today’s market, from the highest end cabinet on down the line to the lower end, is made of part wood and part something else. That “something else” is where you should really pay attention.

As stated before the solid wood kitchen cabinet is possible if you realize there are concessions to be made. The first realization is that even the best cabinets are made of solid wood faces (the front of the cabinet) and the sides and backs are made of plywood. This type of product is excellent for your kitchen needs. It gives you the solid wood look and feel, while the sides are strong, durable, and unnoticed as plywood sides. (The good cabinets will have finished sides to hide the plywood and you will not no the difference).So to quickly sum it up: solid woodcabinets are actually solid wood faced cabinets with plywood sides. This product is made in everywhere high end house, so you don’t have to feel like your getting cheated out of quality.

Next, as we spoke before, the internet is the best place to find these solid wood cabinets. In fact your on it right now (if your reading this article), so why not do a search for kitchen cabinets. The best styles of kitchen cabinets to look for when your trying to save money and still get quality is the: RTA kitchen cabinet. By doing a Google search or any other search engine when you type in RTA kitchen cabinet you should find a nice variety of your “solid wood kitchen cabinets”. Of course, as we noted before, these cabinets are solid wood faced and paneled wood sided, but ultimately this is your best option for a quality cabinet.

Keeping these things in mind will help you easily find a good kitchen cabinet at a reasonable price. Retail shopping for kitchen cabinets is not practical, online shopping is easier and it saves money — on average you will save 35%. (feel free to do the math on that statistic). The savings are there and the quality is too, just remember to stay away from the cheaper cabinets (that contain particle board) and keep focused on the better kitchen cabinets. If you do all of this, you will find great deals online. Your cabinets will never be the “solid wood kitchen cabinets” that you set out for, but along the journey of looking for kitchen cabinets, you will find that the best deals and practicality are in the solid wood faced cabinets with plywood sides.
