I am not sayign everythign they sell is quality but they do offer a couple lines of cabinets that I am very interested in using for my kitchen and laundry room. I woudl not count them out untill you see them in person
I'm in the middle of my kitchen remodel as we speak. I've completed hanging the wall cabinets and today I set the ledger board and leveled half of the L of my kitchen.

I'm doing this all with cabinets from IKEA, using the ADEL medium brown finish. This is all hardwood facia - beechwood, to be exact. It's a virtual copy of everything my neighbor just completed (paid to have done, that is).

Her cabinets alone were over $12,000.

Mine were just under $5000.

The quality is the same, in my eyes.

Hey, we all make our own decisions, right?

My wife and I are also considering Ikea for our kitchen as they have great looking products with guarantees and low prices, pus anything we fit will be better than the current sorry excuse for a kitchen. When you have installed yours please post some pics.

Example of KraftMaid kitchen cabinets.

I went through Home Depot and ended up buying KraftMaid through them. I'm pretty happy with them except for one of the full extension rails had to be returned, but other than that, I'm very happy. I wrote the whole project up at if you're interested. You might find something useful there.

Is it some kind of corner unit? Can you explain where the doors are and how it butts against anything (another cabinet, a wall)?
