I have a 104" wide kitchen by 175" long....off of the end of the 175" I am adding a 90" peninsula. I'm ordering roughly about 15 cabinets. Three quotes, 2 from Lowes, 1 form small kitch and bath store. K&B store is about 3-4,000 higher in quote. My question, i picked out all wood cabinets on Shenandoah and Kraftmaid, except for sides of cabinets is veneer. There are mixed opinions as to quality of the Kitchenm and Shenand....anyone out there have any comments? And, husband and i will tear out old cabinets and counters. Would it be appropriate for me to have Lowes install cabinets and if we like the quarts (silestone) that Home Depot has, have HDepot install the countertops...do they even do that? Thanks for any and all commnents...have to make decision by 5/31/09.
