Home Depot Or Lowe's: Which Has Better Deals On Bathroom Cabinets?

If your bathroom vanity cabinet needs an upgrade, there are a few things to consider. First and foremost, according to HGTV, you should set a budget to keep from overspending. After this, you can decide on the exact layout you wish. Remember to take into consideration which tasks you complete in the bathroom such as applying makeup or doing hair.

Then, take measurements from your bathroom so you can figure out which cabinetry will fit — otherwise, the entire process can be derailed. Next, you must consider which cabinet grade you'd like. Typically, there are four main options to choose from: ready-to-assemble, stock cabinets, custom-made, and semi-custom. Lastly, decide on the color and finish you want. Bathroom cabinets need to be able to be resistant to heat, water, and moisture.

Many choose to purchase their cabinets at either Home Depot or Lowe's. However, based on price and reviews, Home Depot has the better deal. Let's dissect the best-selling model at each store and examine why.
