Merillat, Oakcraft, Timberlake Cabinets
What do you all think of Merilat Classic, Oakcraft and Timberlake Portfolio cabinets? I would like to replace my 1990's white wash cabinets with full overlay, full extension cabinets with soft close dovetail drawers. Are there any other KCMA certified cabinet companies that are a better value? So far, I'm being quoted between $6000-$7000 materials and labor for a standard kitchen with those brands. I don't have an exact measurement of the kitchen cabinets but I've attached a photo.
I've read about Ikea cabinets and while they look nice, would there be any cost savings compared to Merillat Classic, Oakcraft and Timberlake Portfolio after installation. Are they KCMA certified and if not, would that be a red flag for a future homebuyer or for longevity?
I've also priced out independent custom cabinet makers in my area and they are roughly the same price as the name brand pre-builts, but the custom guys tout solid wood interior door panels.
