Last Updated: January 13, 2022
Pine is a warm and beautiful wood to use for kitchen cabinets. Pine cabinets can be purchased finished or unfinished, in a knotty pine or something with minimal knots. They provide a rustic and natural look to your kitchen while providing a solid, splinter free cabinet material.

Pine Cabinet Considerations #
Keep the following points in mind as you shop for pine cabinets in order to find the product that meets your needs and budget.
Stock, Semi-Stock, and Custom Pine Cabinets #
Stock pine cabinets are priced lower than custom and semi-custom cabinets because they are offered in a relatively limited selection. Sizes, door styles, and hardware are standard and cannot be altered by the customer. In addition to their low cost, stock cabinets are available on a short lead time.
Semi-custom pine cabinets are a compromise between stock and custom models that allow customers to choose from a list of modifications, such as cabinet front, depth, width, and hardware, within various cabinet lines offered by the manufacturer. Semi-custom cabinets are built only once the order has been placed.
For those who don't care to compromise the look of their kitchen, there are custom pine cabinets, which are built specifically for you, according to your kitchen layout and the specifications you provide, by a cabinet maker or finish carpenter. Although it's the most expensive cabinet type, custom cabinets provide maximum freedom of choice.
Finished and Unfinished Cabinets #
Unfinished pine cabinets are purchased without a finish coat. The advantages to unfinished cabinetry include cost savings and the ability to stain or paint the cabinets whatever color you want. Finished pine cabinets, on the other hand, come with stain or paint already applied.
Knotty and Clear Wood #
While you may not want to use knotty pine for structural support (the knots are actually defects in the wood that can weaken it), when used for cabinetry, knotty pine lends a rustic appearance that looks great in country and Western-style homes. Clear pine, by comparison, may have very few knots or no knots. If clean pine cabinets are more to your liking, expect to pay more for them compared to knotty pine cabinets.
Pine Cabinet Average Costs #
The actual cost of pine kitchen cabinets may vary based upon local material and labor costs, the product(s) selected, the kitchen size, and other factors.
Expect to pay the following prices for stock, semi-stock, and custom pine cabinets:
Stock pine cabinets cost $3,000 to $6,000 or more.
Semi stock pine cabinets cost $5,000 to $7,500 and up.
Custom pine cabinets cost $7,000 to $12,000 or more.
For installation costs, plan on spending 20 to 25 percent of the total cabinet cost. For example, if your new pine cabinets cost $8,000, installation costs should be an additional $1,500 to $2,000.
Another way to figure the price of pine cabinets is by the linear foot. Using this method, you can expect the following costs:
Stock: $300 to $400 per linear foot installed.
Semi-stock: $400 to $600 per linear foot installed.
Custom: $1,000 to $1,200+ per linear foot.
