Chinese Kitchen Cabinets


Yeah, the hinges and drawer closers are what get me all excited, especially with my 1940s built-in-place cabinets that don't have a square surface on them. Thanks for the input!

Sorry for the rant...
I do woodworking as a hobby.....I think this is the way to go.....the cabinet makers are hungry....a local guy and make you a custom set of cabinets most likely just as cheap as you can buy them from anywhere else....and your not having to shoehorn in a fixed size product....

In other words.....you can get what you want where you want it.....

As for Ikea....they make decent stuff....but....when someone walks into your kitchen they are going to be able to tell that you have 'Ikea' cabinets....

Here's a couple of shots of the cabinets I made for our kitchen...





As soon as I'm done with my 2-story addition I'm yanking out all that tile and doing granit.....moral of the story...be cheap now....pay later....I wish we had done granit from the beginning....

These are beautiful. But please understand that I live in a tourist town, and the carpenters charge tourist prices that I can't afford. I'm just looking for a good alternative that will look nice but not set me back tens of thousands of dollars.

Chinese cabinet looked at these cabinet recently and look very elegance but they may be made in china. Also Chinese cabinets are very cheap for compare of other cabinet. So most of people first choose or install Chinese cabinet form kitchen.
