Let’s face it, cabinets make the kitchen. If your cabinets look old and run down, it can change the look and feel of the entire kitchen. That’s why people are willing to spend so much money when it comes to cabinets. But just cause they are willing doesn’t mean they can afford it. The price of cabinets can without a doubt put a damper on your budget. And that’s why you should consider prefab cabinets.
Prefab cabinets are cabinets that you can put together yourself. And for your efforts you will save quite a bit of money. And don’t worry about quality. You can find high end prefab cabinets that look just as good a the real deal. And since the pieces are stacked and packaged together, this saves on the shipping costs.
Your prefab cabinets will come with everything you need. Hinges, shelves, doors, sides, end caps and much more. Most kits will also come with the hardware you will need as well. Everything is cut with precision and the drill holes are already in place. All you have to do is insert the screws in the appropriate spot. It should all fit together easily and perfectly. And if you need some help there is always a step by step guide included.
And while prefab cabinets have their advantages, there are also some disadvantages. The main one is the fact that you won’t be able to really customize the cabinets. Since prefab cabinets come with everything already done, there really isn’t much room for you to put your own spin on it. So your customization options are very limited.
Another disadvantage is the fact that people look at prefab cabinets as low quality. And while that isn’t true, people still have negative stereotypes associated with them. But other than that, prefab cabinets are a great alternative to expensive regular cabinets.
