The price difference wasabout twenty percent less for assembled cabinets. Then we went astep further and compared online kitchen cabinets with retailkitchen cabinets. The online prices were about thirty percent lessthan retail! Next we compared quality. Most retail stores wereselling kitchen cabinets that were constructed of particle board.These cabinets looked great, but are made of inferior material thatwill eventually fall apart or warp from normal usage. In comparisonthe better kitchen cabinet websites were selling sturdy solid woodfaced cabinets with paneled wood sides.Remember the better websiteswill advertise that they do not sell particle board and it shouldbe easy to spot. Finally we looked at the variety. It was aboutequal when comparing the two types of cabinets. We found aboutseven to ten different shades of cabinets. These styles ranged froma light -- off white color to a dark chestnut color. Both assembledand kitchen cabinets had a good enough variety of colors, butbecause of the savings with the style of cabinets, we choose toassemble the cabinets ourselves and literally save thousands ofdollars.With the savings we found, we decided to jump right intoour project. A lighter shade of cabinet was our choice - because wehad a smaller kitchen. We figured that a lighter shade wouldreflect light and give the feel of a larger kitchen. We foundseveral kitchen cabinet websites and thoroughly went through eachsite to compare prices. After doing enough research and choosingthe cabinets, we ordered online and the cabinets arrived about twoweeks later.
