The amount you should spend on kitchen cabinets depends on several factors such as the size of your kitchen, the materials used, and the level of customization you desire.

On average, homeowners spend between $3,000 to $5,000 for basic cabinets and up to $20,000 or more for high-end custom cabinets.

It's important to set a budget beforehand and work with a reputable contractor to ensure you get the best value for your money.
