Modular kitchen cabinets can be easier on your remodeling budget.

Brand-new kitchen cabinets can take up a big chunk of your kitchen renovation budget, and custom cabinets come with huge labor costs. An alternative way to get new cabinets on a budget is to use modular kitchen cabinets.

Modular cabinets are made up of pre-made cabinet parts that fit together to form a functional kitchen layout. Modular cabinets can be purchased from many neighborhood and online retailers, and they're usually delivered already assembled or in ready-made sections that can be installed on premises fairly easily. Because modular cabinets are pre-constructed, they're generally less expensive and are a good option for a kitchen renovation on a limited budget.

Modular cabinets come in upper and lower units. There are also full floor-to-ceiling units that can be purchased for use as pantries or closets as well. While modular kitchen cabinets aren't custom-built for your specific kitchen, they can be purchased and installed to meet your individual needs, thus making your kitchen unique. Combinations of upper, lower and full cabinet units can be grouped to fit the size and style of your kitchen. Additionally, modular cabinets come in a variety of finishes and colors to further give your kitchen a personal touch.

To add even more individuality to your modular cabinets, the doors can come in single and double styles. They can also be smooth, beveled, or include glass panels. All of these added features help you create a custom look in your kitchen and provide you with the opportunity to display your dishware or kitchen collections or to create a specific style to match the rest of your home.

Modular cabinets typically come with several rows of pre-drilled holes for shelves to be placed by the individual homeowner depending on the height of shelf desired. Special wire storage drawers, dividers and other drawer inserts may also be purchased to address your kitchen storage needs.

While modular kitchen cabinets are a great resource for budget-conscious renovators, the pre-fabricated modular design can also be a negative if you are working with a kitchen with an unusual layout or space. Modular cabinets are available in standard sizes that may not exactly fit the blueprint of your kitchen, and thus some creative configurations must be considered in order to use these cabinets in a custom design.
