When it’s time to search for a new kitchen cabinet, the process isn’t just a simple one-stop shopping adventure. Overhauling your kitchen, arguably one of the most important rooms in the home, requires a great deal of time for research and to evaluate your options before committing to purchase. Let’s look over the best ways to start searching for a ready to assemble kitchen cabinet. CS Hardware has undergone a full site design, making it easier than ever before to navigate the ready to assemble kitchen cabinet section. Take a look at the highlighted categories that make your decision process easier:
Top Selling Cabinets
As with any website where you’re choosing from a variety of options, it helps to have an idea of the style or product that has the biggest draw. Whether the decision is to choose a top seller because of popularity or to avoid the most commonly purchased series, you can use that information to best serve your needs. Top selling cabinets are not only popular — they’re more likely to have customer reviews with a higher purchase volume. Additionally, store customer service will have more insight on personal experiences of their customers with a particular cabinet series to help recommend the right fit for your home.
Filtering options to the best value (related to the cost for a 10’ by 10’ kitchen) is a way to narrow the selection of cabinets. This idea of the “best value” is a good one, but it does not incorporate shipping, which we address below. This is a good selection for someone who needs to update their kitchen cabinets on a budget and wants to choose an attractive set with an equally attractive price. RTA cabinets are ordered in pieces, where you can choose the size of the pieces you need as well as optional decorative additions.
Production and Freight
Shipping costs are a big factor in a kitchen cabinet purchase. This is actually a really important aspect to consider in addition to the cost of your cabinet. For example, even if you find a “best value” cabinet series you love, the shipping cost could make it less attractive than another option with a fair price but lower shipping cost due to where it’s shipped from.
Panel Style, Color, Customization needs
Flat or raised panel styles is a very personal decision for your kitchen’s aesthetic. The same goes for color. Narrow your search quickly by designating a light or dark wood finish, and your chosen panel style. Of course, if none of the navigation options give you the ready to assemble kitchen cabinet style you want, you can custom order items as well. For example, a flat panel style cabinet set could be customized with raised panels. Or you can pick your favorite series style and custom pick the wood species. Going the custom route will involve a higher cost, but when it comes to your kitchen you might want to spend a little more to get exactly what you want.
