A basic L-shaped kitchen from Alex Nemet’s NEFD starts at just $1,899, but most kitchens average about $5,500. And at that price, you’re getting all of the bells and whistles, like a pull-out trash cabinet, roll-out trays, crown molding and more.

You may be dreaming about a kitchen remodel this year, but you’re likely dreading the process. Nothing sucks the fun out of a fabulous update than having to do all the planning yourself. And topping the list of “this is the worst” is trying to find a skilled craftsperson to do the installation.

Enjoying a stress-free kitchen remodel is just one of the many perks of working with the team at Northeast Factory Direct. They make it easy.

“Our customers love the fact that all they have to do is come in and basically sit down with one of our expert designers,” says Angelo Lardomita, lead kitchen designer for one of Northeast Ohio’s most in-demand kitchen and bathroom cabinet suppliers. “Since joining the NEFD team in 2010, I’ve been a part of more than 5,000 Northeast Factory Direct kitchen installations, and many of those have been for Mimi readers. Most have commented on how easy we make the process, and that’s important when it comes to having a portion of your home under construction.”

The installation team NEFD counts on to do everything just right works almost exclusively for the company, so they know exactly how to get the job done.

“I’m continually amazed by the number of cabinets we sell on a weekly basis, but I think that says a lot about the quality of the product we offer, the quality of the designs we produce and our customer service before, during and after each project,” Angelo remarks.

Another reason people turn to NEFD to supply their kitchen cabinets is turnaround time. “Our lead time is a fraction of what other stores offer,” he adds. “Our buying power is such that we’re able to get kitchen cabinet orders turned around in just a few weeks. The supply chain in general is weak right now because of the pandemic, but we’ve been unaffected. That really speaks to the power of what we do here. Our customers know they can count on a speedier installation, and our suppliers give us preferential treatment because of the volume we do. Everyone wins.”

Kitchens Starting at $1,899
“Our basic L-shaped kitchen starts at just $1,899, but most kitchens average about $5,500. And at that price, you’re getting all of the bells and whistles, like a pull-out trash cabinet, roll-out trays, crown molding and more. At other places, those things are expensive add-ons. No way could you get them into a $5,500 kitchen,” Angelo says. “And our cabinets have the look of custom and semi-custom styles. The difference is we offer them at a fraction of the price others are selling them for. And we don’t just sell them in standard sizes.”
