Estimating the Cost to Make Built-In Cabinets Estimating the Cost to Make Built-In Cabinets
Estimating the costs for built-in cabinets should be done at the beginning of the project in order to give you an idea of what you can and cannot afford. This is true of any type of renovation or restoration project that you may be involved in around your home. The cost for built-in cabinets varies depending on where you live (region of the country) and the cost of materials, supplies and labor. Because these costs can be specific to the region of the country in which you live, it is important to note what cost elements should be included.
Estimating built-in cabinet costs begins with looking at the cost of removing the old cabinets. This is a simple demolition task that can be handled by yourself so your costs would be minimal. The rental of a trash container to place the cabinets in or the cost of having someone haul them away is all that would be involved here.
Labor and Installation Costs
Your biggest cost related to having built-in cabinets made and installed is the labor costs associated with the installation as well as the cost of the cabinets. Depending on the level of detail that you warrant for your cabinets and the amount of surface area that the cabinets need to cover, this cost can be well in the several thousands. Take accurate measurements of the space in which the cabinets will be placed and seek several estimates before commencing with the project.
