Kraftmaid cabnets
 
I am about to drop 13grand on Kraftmaid kitchen cabinets (not from a big box store) what should I watch out for?

Must be a very large kitchen and very fancy cabinets.

Need more info that this. On avg Kraftmaid is a decent factory cabinet, does price include install? door style, wood etc 13K is NOT a huge amount for decent cabinets.

I've been an NC real estate broker for more than 21 years, and the ONLY cabinets that I emphasize or name in a listing are Kraftmaid. I personally think that they're the best made around here.
Sort of like listing Andersen windows and doors (or Cadillacs, etc.)

Atlantic: Man you know that fer sure. Maybe WE should run down there for a cheap 25K install on them :}:}

Anyone know how to estimate cabinet cost for Kraftmaid? I am considering a kitchen overhaul. Heard Ikea was rated well. We would be in the house 5-6 more years. Kitchen is about 12x14 and would only have cabinets 1 2/3 walls.

skymaster 02-12-2008 09:12 PM

Gonefishin: Need a whole lot more info than numbers.
door style, wood type, pullouts or not, blumotion or not,frameless or f/f
you install?
you do tearout?
you setup for new install?
you do any plumbing or electrical repairs or changes?
etc etc etc?:eek:

It is a full house(about '8000 sq.ft.new construction)The wine room:icon_rolleyes: has more time in it than the kitchen. Were getting 15% for install.. We didn't bid any suptops, or cabinet knobs/pulls. We didn't make the cabinets,but they are 'custom', not box.

skymaster 02-13-2008 10:28 AM

RTR: :laughing: ROFLMFAO Now how is that for irony??????? I popped 25K off the top of my head and now you say u get 15% of 160K LOL LOL that is 24K!!!!!!!!
Damn I am good but humble :whistling2: :wink: :)

Can you snap a few pix and post them here? I'd love to see what $160k buys for a kitchen.

skymaster 02-13-2008 01:41 PM

Clutchcargo; I read above that there is a wine room also in that 160K. THAT is usually a big chunk of change

Sky...I plan on doing all demo on kitchen. I will strip down to subfloor and studs. We have discovered too many problems with this house to leave walls intact. I will post when i am closer to doing this project.
