The money you will pay a contractor can eat up a large portion of your remodel budget. If keeping labor costs low is your concern you may want to consider ready-to-assemble cabinets. These are excellently suited for Do-It-Yourselfers and can come in both framed and frame-less varieties. This type of cabinet is defined by its need for assembly after purchase and delivery. The required hardware and components for each cabinet’s construction are included with delivery, and assembly and installation usually takes a few hours. Once finished, a ready-to-assemble cabinet can be just as sturdy, attractive, and long-lasting as any pre-assembled model. Since construction labor is completed by the buyer at home, ready-to-assemble cabinets generally come at a lower cost than pre-assembled models.
