Minnesota Kitchen Cabinets – Plenty of Choices

The Mall of America in Minnesota is approximately 9.5 million square feet. To put that in perspective, that’s nearly 80 football fields! Needless to say, Minnesotans are stereotyped as serious shoppers. This is furthered by the fact that some of the biggest retailers, including Target, are headquartered in Minnesota. Outside of retail, one of the biggest industries in MN is forestry. What do you get when you add retail and forestry? That’s right; some of the finest cabinetry in the country is Minnesota kitchen cabinets.

Minnesota kitchen cabinets come in such a variety of types and styles that they might be able to fill up the whole Mall of America! However, in order to get a grasp on what kinds of Minnesota kitchen cabinets you can buy, we’ll hone it down to just a few major types: custom, semi-custom, and ready-to-assemble cabinets.

Custom Cabinets. Custom made cabinets are just as they sound—the customer gets to choose just about everything—the sizes, the shapes, the designs, the wood type and the finish. With all these options, you think that they’d be the highest selling of all Minnesota kitchen cabinets, right? Wrong. They are actually the least purchased. Why? Because all the customization comes with a really high price tag.

Semi-Custom Cabinets. Semi-custom cabinets are a little bit cheaper than custom cabinets. The come in various styles and customers have some flexibility in choosing design, wood, and finish details. However, the more style options to specifically request, the steeper the price gets.

Ready-to-Assemble Cabinets. Ready-to-assemble or RTA cabinets are like prefabricated cabinets, or stock cabinets, but they are shipped to the home, ready to be put together by the home owners.  They are increasingly popular because cutting out the labor costs of custom and semi-custom cabinets can save the homeowner a lot of money. Because they now come in a wide variety of sizes, wood types, and finishes, people find they still can customize their choices enough to be as happy as with custom made cabinets.
