Q: We’re considering new cabinetry for our kitchen and new vanities for the baths. How can we be sure we’re getting the most for our money?—Will C., Westlake

A: When it comes to cabinetry, quality costs—and it counts. Depending upon your needs, and your budget, different options or features may or may not make sense for you. It’s important to know if you plan to remain in your home for several years or if you’ll be selling in the near future; that could affect some of your choices. You’ll also want to consider the usage a particular room is getting. That may also impact the quality you consider.

If your budget can accommodate a “great” cabinet as opposed to a “good” one, it’s always best to spend a little more up front in order to reap the rewards of better quality for years to come. We at Moore Home Remodeling can help you determine how far up or down the quality and design ladder you should go to make sure you get everything you’re looking for.

Here are some of the features that can affect the cost of a cabinet or vanity:

Construction – How is the cabinet put together? Does it feature a cam-lock assembly, glue and fasteners, or pocket screws?
Materials – Is the cabinet made of solid plywood or particleboard?
Hinge Hardware – Are the closures steel soft-close with full extension, or are they the coated roller style?
Finish – Is the finish a paint or stain?
Interior Accessories – Do you want a pull-out trash bin and/or shelving?
Style – Will you be sticking with the simple, stock designs or opting for more designer-like features, such as inset doors or an aged look?
Cost – Will your cabinets be oak, cherry, or maple? Certain wood species cost more.

These are just some of the factors to consider, but there are many others. Give us a call and we can help you devise a wish list of wants and must-haves to determine which cabinet type is right for your project.
