During the last decade of constructing kitchen cupboards, we have realized alot, every little thing from what supplies to make use of to what methods, and at last, are able to share our course of from begin to end with you.
However first, let’s focus on what precisely we’re constructing – as there are lots of alternative ways to construct kitchen cupboards, and lots of several types of supplies to make use of.
The Ana White Kitchen Cupboard
- 3/4″ plywood carcass with entrance edges edgebanded
- Frameless – with the plywood carcass, no face body is required for construction
- Pocket gap joinery
- Full overlay doorways and drawers with hid hinges
- 1/4″ hole total in between doorways and drawers
- For open shelving or cupboards with no doorways/drawers, I like so as to add a face body for a completed look
- I like to make use of a 1×6 for the highest drawer faces with a 1×4 or 1×3 drawer field.
- I do not advocate 1x12s for bigger drawer faces, as they all the time appear to warp or cup
How a lot Does it Price to Construct Your Personal Kitchen?
This actually is determined by how a lot work you do your self. For this kitchen, I did just a little math:
- 1/2″ plywood RTA cupboards that you just assemble your self and set up and trim out your self: $6000
- DIY cupboards utilizing Shelf Assist and ordering hardwood doorways, you construct, set up and paint or end: $2500
- Full DIY – slicing your individual plywood, constructing your individual doorways, doing every little thing: $1200-$1800 (relying on wooden costs)
If you’re doing the hybrid DIY technique, I discover the doorways are going to value about the identical quantity as your carcass from Shelf Assist. The general value is mostly about 3 times your carcass quote from Shelf Assist.
