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.)

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.

you do tearout?

etc etc etc?

It is a full house(about '8000 sq.ft.new construction)The wine room 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.

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

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.
