There is no doubt about it: Remodeling a kitchen can be a huge undertaking. Not only is it time consuming, but it expensive as well. Everything from the large purchases to the small require some planning and forethought to make the room come together in stylish and functional way. Knowing where to trim the cost of the remodel can be tricky, however. You do not want to skimp on the quality of materials, especially when it comes to your cabinets, flooring, countertops, and appliances. Those four are the workhorse staples of the kitchen and will inevitably show wear and tear first. Flimsy material or construction can make your dream kitchen look like a nightmare in a very short time. Thankfully, there is a great option for saving money on your cabinets without having to skimp on quality or construction – buying wholesale.
Wholesale distributors and manufacturers have a unique feature that many small retailers do not – they have a lot of stock. What that means for the homeowner is that you can find a wide selection of cabinets, especially ready-to-assemble (RTA) cabinets, in one location. Whether it be a brick and mortar warehouse or an online storefront, you can shop one location and find exactly what you want. This is a detail that is often overlooked when planning or thinking about a kitchen remodel, but the time you save by shopping in one place where you can quickly get everything you need is a huge factor. Why wait around for months for your kitchen cabinets, when you can get them shipped within a week?
Wholesale kitchen cabinets stores know that they must stock high-quality cabinets. Why? Well, if they sell inferior products, and have a lot on hand, word will get around within the contracting and DIY communities that their products are not worth the money. Not only will this hurt business, but it will also leave their warehouses stocked with cabinets that will not sell. In most cases, if there is a stray cabinet in the bunch that is not to the same high-quality, wholesalers have the ability to quickly replace it with another one in stock. This is an extremely helpful option for homeowners, especially if they are paying a contractor to complete the job.
With a large quantity of kitchen cabinets in stock, the price of them is usually much less than if you buy retail. The reason wholesalers are able to offer their products at a deep discount is because there is no middle man. They do not have to tack on additional fees like a retailer does, which means that you can find the lowest possible prices on the cabinets that are perfect for your home.
Buying wholesale may be intimidating at first, because of misconceptions about the quality or variety of offerings, but it is a great way to save both time and money. When you save money on the basic components of the new kitchen, you can either use it to hire a contractor to do all of the work for you, or to just cut down on costs. Be sure to look into buying wholesale the next time you are considering a kitchen remodel and you might just be surprised by how much you can save.
