Can I Afford Custom Cabinetry?
The answer to this question is usually yes! We can help you understand what it is going to cost to build custom cabinets. While it typically costs more for custom cabinets, you also get more value from cabinets that are built to perfectly fit your space and your style. We also refurbish cabinets, which improves their appearance and functionality for a fraction of the cost of new cabinets. Please call us if you have an interest in beautifully designed and built cabinets — let us be your guide!
How Much Does the Typical Kitchen Remodel Cost?
In late 2011, a survey by Remodeling Magazine reported that a kitchen remodel averaged $19,500-$57,300 in the Midwest. Cabinet Creations’ kitchen remodels usually start around $15,000-$25,000. We may be able to refurbish your kitchen cabinets for less than $10,000, depending on the size of your kitchen.
Do you carry any factory or stock cabinetry?
No. We custom build all cabinetry in our on-site shop located in Marion, Iowa.
Call to visit our showroom to see our shop and to compare factory cabinetry side by side with our custom cabinetry. Once you see the difference in construction as well as the extra space you get in every drawer, we think you’ll see the additional value you can get from custom cabinets.
Is custom cabinetry more expensive than factory cabinetry?
Pricing for our custom cabinetry is very competitive with non-standard factory cabinetry, which usually sells for approximately 20% more than stock factory cabinets. However, the quality of handcrafted cabinetry from Cabinet Creations is superior.
One very valuable feature of our cabinetry is that you actually receive 60 percent more drawer space than in factory-made cabinets. Everyone needs more storage, and our cabinetry delivers a lot more space in every drawer!
Plus, you will find a greater selection of architecture-grade materials at Cabinet Creations. More wood selections, including the latest exotic woods and veneers and almost twice as many countertop choices. SO if you’re looking for something unique, we can help!
Can you match existing cabinetry?
Yes. Cabinet Creations has the expertise to duplicate almost any door style and finish.
Do you install the cabinetry?
Yes. To ensure the optimal, professional installation of cabinetry, we prefer to install the cabinets we build. During this process, we work to keep the area neat and clean for the occupants of the building and for other contractors.
Does Cabinet Creations charge a design/consultation fee?
Yes. We offer design services for a fee and charge an initial fee to visit your home or job site. At this visit, we will measure, photograph and gather the necessary information to provide a rough estimate for your project. This charge is discounted if you order from us. If you bring photos, measurements and details to us, there is no fee for the rough estimate. Rough estimates based on information supplied by the Customer, without verification by Cabinet Creations, Inc., represent our good faith estimate of the probable cost of any work under consideration by a customer. For countertop only quotes, there is no fee charged when you provide us with a simple drawing that includes dimensions and details.
If you’d like details about our design and consultation fees, please call us at 319-377-3787.
How do we get a proposal from Cabinet Creations?
Please call to set up an appointment and plan to bring in your ideas and information.
Do you allow checkout of cabinet wood, countertops and hardware samples?
Yes. You can check out many wood, quartz, solid surfacing, laminate and hardware samples. For your custom cabinetry project, we will create a custom finish sample for you.
What are your payment terms?
For most bid jobs, we require a 40% down payment to help cover the cost of materials. When the job is completed, the 60% balance is due. We do not schedule a job until a down payment or signed contract is received.
Are you open on Saturdays?
Our hours are Monday through Friday, 8-5. However, we welcome you to call if you’d like to schedule an early evening or Saturday appointment.
Can Cabinet Creations machine lumber for others?
Yes. Please call us for our shop rates.
What is the best way to clean wood?
For most woods with a finish, we recommend the spray product, “Cabinet Magic.” It is available from many retailers in the Cedar Rapids-Iowa City area.
