Update On the Bathroom Remodel

Some of you had asked about what should an upgrade from one wood type to another on cabinets cost? Well I e-mailed Dura-Supreme Cabinets in Minnesota and here is the Reply. And thanks Karen for responding so promptly, this will certainly help our readers.

Hello Hal – I’ll try to answer your questions …  Wood species will absolutely affect the price of cabinetry (unless a company is running a special promotion without the normal species upcharges).  There are a few wood species that are considered premium and they just simply cost more.  If you go to any lumber yard or mass retailer, the board foot price of oak will be less than the same board foot of maple or cherry.  That price difference then affects the cost of the cabinetry as well.  In general, the base price of cabinetry is going to reflect wood species like Oak, Hickory, or Knotty Alder.  Maple is usually about a 5% upcharge.  Cherry is usually about a 10% upcharge.

Dura Supreme offers Oak, Maple, Cherry, Rustic Cherry, Knotty Alder, Quarter Sawn Oak, Lyptus and several varieties of exotic veneers.  For the most part, these are the main species that most manufacturers offer.  Let me know if you have further questions, Hal.
