There are so many options and companies out there it is hard to decide for sure what is best and it depends on where you are. Some suppliers only supply to their region. When checking providers, look for service, look at price, look at quality. Check what material do they use. Is it real wood and plywood or MFD? Consider if you need installation or can you do it yourself or hire someone locally? Is there warranty? Are there options to customize and is this something you want and are willing to pay for? Do they have a lot of variety? If not, do they have what you are looking for? And remember to check out some customer reviews if possible.

Where can I buy Kitchen Cabinets online?

There are so many providers on the internet. Too many to name here. That would be an article on its own. Take your time to check them out. Some companies such as RTA, Kitchen Cabinets Curaçao , Kitchen Cabinet Depot, All Wood Cabinets, and In Stock Kitchens specialise in cabinetry.  Other companies like Amazon, IKEA, Wayfair, and Home Depot have cabinets, but they do not specialise in cabinets and may not be able to provide expert advice.

What does custom kitchen cabinets really mean and how do I know if it is right for me?

Kitchen cabinets are available is stock, semi-custom and custom. Which one is right for you depends on your needs and your budget.

Stock (Modular Kitchen Cabinets)  comes right out of the box ready-made. They are mass-produced with no ability to make changes. As with anything, something that comes stock is usually cheaper and faster.

Semi-custom comes with some ability to make changes and personalize your cabinets at least within the available options. There may be different doors and trim options.  There may be options made out of different wood, in different styles, and in different colors. They are available fairly quickly though. They cost a little more than stock cabinets but not as expensive as custom cabinets.

Custom cabinets are made to order either on-site or off site but to meet the specific needs of the customer. Because they are made to order they take much longer and are more expensive and labour-intensive than stock or semi-custom cabinets. You do have complete control to choose what you want as far as size, style, color, type of wood etc.

What do they mean by High End Kitchen Cabinets?

Somethings that are not truly high end may be labelled high end. Some look high end or mimic a style that might be considered high end. Some are just expensive, which I guess by definition does mean they are at the high end of the price points, but in my opinion, high end should mean Quality. The doors and drawers should be made of solid wood. The box can be made of plywood but not MFD. They should be well-made and put together to last. They should be functional, stylish and beautiful. If you are paying high prices, you should get some good service as well. So when you see the words High End, be careful and if you do decide to go that route, make sure you are paying for true High End merchandise.

Conclusion

So if you are building or renovating your kitchen you are not limited to what you have in the area after all. Check out your options online before making a final decision.  By buying online you may get more options, possibly better quality, and possibly at a better price. Take your time to explore your options and choose the option that best fits your needs, your tastes, and your budget.

  1. hi, great article. I was not aware that you can buy cabainets online. I guess nowadays, pretty much anything can be bought online. Do you have a particular online store that you recommend? Thank you!

    1. Hi sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Where to buy depends on where you are located. Some providers may not deliver anywhere in the world. RTA is good. Luxuria Kitchen and Bath are great. LillyAnn Cabinets are also great. Do you need custom or semi-custom or modular stock cabinets OK. Any of the sites mentioned are really good. Check if they provide service to your area and see if their products meet your needs.

  3. Hi there, thanks for a great article. I’m still wary of what I buy online, especially if it is something that would cost a lot of money, but I guess you just have to do your research first. The picture in your post of the white kitchen is my absolute dream kitchen, I just need to save up now as I definitely prefer quality things that last longer, it just works out more cost effective in the long run.

  4. I too was more unaware of online purchasing of cabinets. I live by an IKEA so a lot of people go there but the downside is that there is little variety. You can tell IKEA cabinets when you see them. Getting custom ordered cabinets is the way to go if you can afford it
