Save Money Buying Kitchen Cabinets Direct

If you’re like many homeowners during this global pandemic, you’ve probably found yourself wanting to make some kitchen improvements, a kitchen remodel, or a full kitchen renovation. 

And in your research you’ve probably found that buying kitchen cabinets can be quite expensive.

However, buying kitchen cabinets direct can save you money, energy, and time, because upgrading your kitchen cabinets does not have to cost you an arm and a leg.

At a time when we are in the middle of a global pandemic, it’s important to be money savvy while still making those home improvements that will give you a comfortable space in your home.

Why Buying Kitchen Cabinets Can Be Expensive

Depending on where you’re searching for kitchen cabinets it is unlikely that you’re buying kitchen cabinets directly from the manufacturer. 

For the most part, online distributors and home improvement stores receive their cabinets from a “middle man.”

The standard distribution method for cabinetry is as follows:

  • The manufacturer ships the cabinetry to a brick and mortar authorized dealer, outlet, or retail store. 
  • The store receives the cabinets
  • The store then sells  them to the consumer
  • And finally, the store delivers the kitchen cabinets to the customer (i.e. you).

The costs of being the “middle man,” while also having to pay their employees, run their shops, etc. result in price markups.

It’s this distribution chain that gets costly at every step.

That mark up is reflected in the final cost of the kitchen cabinets.

The final cost to you, the customer.

Keeping the Costs Low for Your Kitchen Cabinet Project

One of the easiest ways to keep your costs low while maintaining the beauty and quality of the kitchen cabinets you want is to buy from an authorized dealer.

This step can help you cut the distribution chain, saving you money.

When you cut out the number of agents involved in the distribution process, you also cut the final costs that you would incur as the consumer at every step of that distribution.

Cutting it altogether would mean you’re buying directly from the cabinetry factory. 

However, factories are not set up to receive orders directly from customers, just like a car factory isn’t set up to receive direct orders from customers.

So what can you do to reduce the number of agents within the distribution process?

That’s where we come in.
