Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on HomeGuide.

How much do custom cabinets cost near me?

Custom cabinets cost $500 to $1,200 per linear foot installed, and semi-custom cabinets cost $200 to $550 per linear foot. The average cost to install fully custom cabinets is $12,000 to $18,000. Cabinet makers charge $50 to $150 per hour for labor alone.

What does a cabinet maker do?

Cabinet makers design, build, finish, install, and repair custom bathroom and kitchen cabinetry, bookshelves, storage racks, closets, shelving, pantries, wine cellars, bars, and heirloom-quality furniture.

How long does it take to build custom cabinets?

Custom cabinets take 6 to 12 weeks on average to design, order materials, build, and install. The cabinet building time depends on the style, design planning, materials and availability, finishes, and add-ons.

What to consider before installing cabinets?

Consider the following factors when planning your custom cabinetry.

  • Materials – Cabinet makers can build custom cabinets from different types of wood, glass, metal, and other materials. Hardware for handles and hinges also comes in various designs and materials.
  • Design style – Cabinets come in six main types to choose from: Shaker-style, beadboard, glass-front, flat-front, plywood, and natural unfinished wood. Decide if you prefer sliding or pivot doors, need extra storage space, or need additional drawers.
  • Finishing – Select from various finishing options such as painted, stained, glazed, natural, varnished, or distressed. Ask the cabinet maker about green options and non-toxic varnishes and stains.
  • Add-ons – Considier installing built-in and add-on accessories such as storage systems, wine racks, custom lighting, stemware racks, pull-out trash bins, roll-out shelving, appliance panels, bookcases, and more.

How much does refinishing or refacing cabinets cost in my area?

Cabinet refacing costs $100 to $500 per linear foot, which is 50% to 75% less than replacing cabinets. Refacing is recommended for custom cabinetry when there is no damage to the cabinet doors or boxes.

Refinishing or repainting cabinets costs $3 to $10 per square foot or $900 to $3,800. Refinishing or repainting is significantly cheaper than new custom cabinets or refacing, and is recommended when cabinets show minor wear or needs an updated look.
