One advantage to solid wood cabinets is that you don't have to be attached to the color of the wood, as many of them can be modified with paint or stain to match your kitchen or bathroom's color scheme. Plus, solid wood cabinets are more durable. However, they must be mounted more firmly, which takes longer.
The cost of mounting a cabinet can vary considerably based on individual circumstances, such as the number of cabinets to be installed and where they're being installed. Consider the cost of basic labor and job supplies, including fasteners, connectors and materials used to prepare and finish the cabinet surface. Equipment allowance is also a cost factor, as the professional you hire may need to rent specialty equipment such as a belt sander or miter saw to make sure the work is well done and completed efficiently.
Proper measurements are essential when mounting a cabinet, and pros are trained to measure twice and cut once. Cutting mistakes can't be fixed easily, and incorrect measurements will result in gaps between seams and uneven cabinet surfaces. Cabinets also need to be mounted level and plumb. The contents won't sit evenly unless the cabinet is installed correctly. Cabinets also need to be secured and mounted to the drywall and studs in your kitchen, bathroom or wherever they're installed. Hiring a qualified professional will result in the best outcome.
