Hello tyler302,


Thanks for joining us here on the community.


For cost, the least expensive cabinets would be ones you make yourself out of plywood. 


The Home Depot hasn't sold just hte kitchen cabinet doors in stock in about 10 years, so you would have to consult your local Home Depot store's kitchen specialist who can go over what is the least expensive option for you. 


They will have to be special ordered, so if you have your measurements, this will make the process much easier for you.


Cheap means low quality, least expensive means you can still get something that can hold up after years of use.


Let us know if you have any additional questions,

Joseph

Joseph,

I don't think you've priced cabinet grade plywood lately.  Last I looked a sheet of quality flat sawn oak or cherry plywood was pushing $100 a sheet.  And one would probably need a minimum of $5,000 worth of tools to make cabinets.  Making one cabinet isn't so much of a challenge as making two dozen identical ones.

As for the original question, there are any number of Internet sites that sell unfinished cabinet doors in a variety of styles and materials.  The cheapest option is MDF, which isn't a bad choice for a cabinet door that is going to be painted.  Soft maple or poplar would be a better choice.

Frankly, I don't recommend home finishing of cabinets with anything but paint.  Most people don't have the skill level and necessary equipment to come even close to the quality and durability of factory finish.
