White kitchen cabinets get more than $4k upgrade
By LINDSAY SELBY, Associated Press SAN FRANCISCO (AP) White kitchen cabinet prices rose by more than 4,000 percent over the past year, making them the most expensive in the U.S. in a new report.
The National Association of Home Builders reported Monday that white cabinets have seen a 7.4 percent increase over last year, as the price of natural wood has surged by more $5.5 billion.
That jump comes on top of an 18 percent increase in natural wood cabinets over the last two years, said NHAB spokesman Dan Williams.
Natural wood cabinets are used in most homes.
