Choosing Inset Doors for Kitchen Cabinets
Installing inset cabinet doors can be a tricky proposition. Because the doors lay flush with the cabinet itself, they must be cut and installed with precision. So, while inset cabinets generally don't come with a higher materials cost, more labor is involved and installation can come with a higher price.
Price quotes for inset cabinets vary greatly with the size of your kitchen, number and shape of cabinets, the materials you want to use, your geographic location and more. For example, a L shape kitchen, in the San Francisco Bay Area, measuring 11'1" x 7'9" and including four sets of drawers, a corner, a sink base and coordinating uppers, all-wood maple inset cabinets can range from $4,000 to $7,350. You'll likely find different estimates for your project--remember that good research will help give you a better idea of prices in your area.
Hiring a professional contractor to reface your kitchen cabinets' inset doors helps ensure that their balance and beauty will remain for years to come. Explore manufacturers and installers to learn more about your options for kitchen cabinets that really make a statement.
