The price range of kitchen cabinets

Makers of the kitchen cabinet have an hourly charge rate of between $50 and $75 as a standard rate. However, certain factors like location and special project needs affect the charge. If you are looking at custom cabinetry, you can get an hourly charge rate of $120.

For separate cabinets, you should be ready to fork out about:

  • Between $100 and $300 for a cabinet for small and mid-range kitchen makeovers.
  • Between $300 and $500 for a single cabinet for primary kitchen renovations.
  • About $600 or over for a single custom cabinet that comes with customized features.

Many of the cost difference of kitchen cabinets is down to the material quality that they are made of as well as their mode of construction.

Many modern kitchen cabinets are made easily from melamine which means the external coating. Below the standard white surface, there is either the particle board material or the MDF. Cabinets of better quality are produced from MDF which has a stronger material compared to the particleboard.


The total price to renovate a complete kitchen cabinet

For a professional cabinet installation for the entire kitchen system, you can think about forking out about:

  • $4300 for a budget kitchen cabinet produced from melamine fronts
  • $6600 for the mid-range polyurethane produced kitchen cabinet
  • $10,200 for the middle-range personalized 2pac kitchen cabinet system.
  • $15,200 and more for the personalized kitchen timber or the 2pac kitchen cabinet system.


The price of a flat pack modern kitchen

People who cannot afford their dream kitchens can consider going for the flat pack kitchen while they get local kitchen cabinet makers to get it installed for them. IKEA is an authorized seller of flat pack kitchen cabinets.

They also have kitchen installers that can fix the entire system for you. When you do it this way, it will be a lot less expensive and quicker compared to getting a personalized kitchen builder. The flat pack kitchen cabinets typically cost more than the single units, since all drawers, cabinets, and cupboards are priced individually. You should be ready to pay between $2,600 and $10,000  for the flat pack kitchen cabinets. However, this depends on your kitchen size and whatever the manufacturer has chosen.

Selecting kitchen cabinet makers

A lot of kitchen cabinet builders have massive workshops that are used to house modern functional cabinet equipment that is used to streamline the process of cabinet making. Other options could be small and local operations that compete with the bigger services since they have minimal overheads.

Makers of the Kitchen cabinet usually have varying service prices and this does not depend on the magnitude of the cabinetry business. If you choose any cabinet maker or kitchen builder for a quote, this should come with:

  • A free measurement and the quote
  • A free kitchen layout design
  • The freedom to choose between various kitchen drawer and door front materials
  • The installation


At the designing phase of your kitchen cabinet, look closely at the way the kitchen designer handles your job. Do you like their kitchen design method? Are they trying to help you stay within budget? A reliable kitchen designer will help you get the best kitchen designs without going over your intended budget.

For people looking to do a total kitchen renovation or build a new kitchen, they might also try to get the services of an authorized builder or carpenter.


Do you need licensed kitchen cabinet makers?

Many Australian territories and states need you to choose licensed kitchen cabinet makers. They could have a range of working licenses, which includes joinery, builder, and carpentry licenses. We also have kitchen builders and specialized kitchen installers of IKEA products that can help you do this work, and they all should be licensed.


Getting to hire the right tradesmen

If ever you need to hire tradesmen, you should ensure that they can do the job. Several questions you should ask them to include:

  • Whether they are licensed.
  • Do you have the right insurance to work in people’s homes.
  • What is the estimated duration of the job?
  • If they can write you a quote?
  • If they have good references that can be followed.
  • If they have a collection of past project works.


Getting to hire the right tradesmen

When looking for the prices of total kitchen renovations, the best way to get reliable and verifiable price quotes is to contact Acura Developments. They are professional local makers of modern kitchen cabinets. Their rates will keep you informed of the current market rates.

To ensure that you are really getting comparative quotes, you should first select your favorite door and benchtop front materials and be able to obtain quotes for the same kitchen materials and design. You will be able to see that there are considerably various quotes for kitchens that are identical.

Right before you select the lowest material quote, try to obtain the construction quality. Superior quality kitchen cabinets, hardware, and many other kitchen fittings will give you more durable and pleasurable kitchen cabinets.

Then again try to ensure that you get itemized kitchen quotes and add in all your needed quotes, which includes your electricity and plumbing. Your quotes should come with both start dates and completion dates, as well as the payment schedule.

Professional kitchen cabinet makers usually will not request the final payment if they do not complete the job to the satisfaction of the client. This is the best way of guaranteeing that you get your best kitchen worth.
