Stock vs. custom RTA cabinets: which is right for you?
The kitchen is referred to as the “heart of the home,” because it’s where people tend to congregate most often. Whether you’re spending the day at home with family or hosting a big party, it’s the place to be. This is why remodeling your kitchen is one of the most transformative changes you can make to your home.
Nothing sets the style and tone like gleaming, new cabinets, but they can also take a big bite out of your budget. If you’re willing to dive in and get involved yourself, however, there are several areas in which you can realize significant savings.
