Stock kitchen cabinets are pre-designed. This makes them cheaper and easier to get, but they lack personality and quality. You get to design your custom kitchen cabinets to fit your style. You’ll pay more for the personalization and quality.

Stock cabinets are typically between $75 and $400 per linear foot while custom cabinets are about $500 to $1,400.
