From Custom Cabinetry to Complete Remodels: Navigating the Price Tags

When it comes to transforming your living spaces, two key areas often take center stage: the kitchen and the bathroom. Whether you're looking to just upgrade your cabinetry or embark on a complete remodeling project, understanding the costs involved is crucial. In this article, we'll explore the factors influencing the cost of high-end custom built-in cabinetry in Wake County and provide estimates for kitchen and bathroom remodeling. Remember, these figures are approximations and can fluctuate based on various factors.

Please note that your estimate may be significantly less or more than the following ranges due to a number of factors. Reach out to us at the links below with your inquiry, and we would be happy to give you a final estimate for your project.

The cost of high-end custom built-in cabinetry is influenced by several factors, including project size, complexity, materials used, level of customization, and design requirements. On average, in Wake County, prices can range from $500 to $1,500 per linear foot. This estimate typically includes design, construction, and installation of premium-quality cabinetry crafted with top-notch materials and finishes. The actual price per linear foot can vary based on factors such as unit height and depth, wood species selection, design complexity, inclusion of special features or accessories, and craftsmanship level.

It's important to note that this estimate covers the cabinetry itself and does not account for additional elements in a kitchen remodel, such as countertops, appliances, or labor costs. More cost-effective options such as builder-grade materials or prefab cabinetry can help reduce costs associated with custom cabinetry.
