Granite is something I wouldn't mess with, and I do or enjoy doing nearly everything myself as well. Some things... you just have to let the pros deal with- especially on something that permanent. You don't want to mess up on something like that or you're shot out of all that money. At least if the installer messes up, it's on them :D

Where to buy kitchen cabinets?


I'm going to put in a plug for Ikea as well. Depending on what you want/need, they can be an exceptionally good solution, very well designed and if installed correctly, far more durable than you might think. The hardware on them such as the door hinges and draw assemblies is first rate and as good as anything else on the market. Where Ikea falls down is in lack of selection and custom features, and the natural issues that go with frameless cabinets and flakeboard. That said, there are ways to design a kitchen that make those non-issues and Ikea sells parts, such as end face boards that help.

Ikea also stands by their stuff. Last kitchen of ours, one of the doors on a tall cabinet warped a bit...about 1/8". They replaced it without batting an eye.
