COST GUIDE

Installing new kitchen cabinets can freshen up your kitchen’s appearance and add value to your home. Estimating cabinet installation costs is easier when you know which factors to consider. Learn how to budget for your kitchen cabinet installation project with this Home Depot guide.

Kitchen Cabinet Installation Cost

Cabinet Install: $69-119 per CABINET BOX


This price is all-inclusive and does not vary based on cabinet type, material, style or location in the kitchen. It also includes common kitchen add-ons like knobs, drawer pulls, hinges, toe kicks and in-cabinet organization enhancements like drawer inserts or Lazy Susans.

Features that May Affect Cost

When budgeting for cabinet installation costs, there are several factors that impact the overall price. Here are the main features to consider:

Number of Cabinets


The more cabinets you choose to install, the longer the project will take. This raises labor costs.

Removal and Disposal of Old Cabinets


Dismantling and disposing of your existing cabinetry varies in cost by the size of the project and by the hours needed to complete the task.

Other Considerations

Certain cabinet installations require additional renovations to the kitchen structure, like the removal of walls or relocation of plumbing and electrical. These changes require extra time and labor, which can raise the overall cost.

In some instances, you must also acquire the appropriate permits for plumbing and electrical elements. At The Home Depot, our trusted professionals handle the entire installation process, including all aspects of kitchen preparation, permit acquisitions, removal of existing fixtures, setting the cabinets and the plumbing and electrical work.


Note: If structural remodeling is required, additional engineering and architectural fees may apply. Speak to a Home Depot representative for more information on structural remodeling costs and to see if this service is available in your area.
