Are IKEA cabinets junk or a good buy?
I have received TOTALLY conflicting opinions of IKEA kitchen cabinets. An architect friend highly recommends them as an excellent value, my contractor (who does not sell cabinets)thinks they are "total junk." I am assuming the truth is somewhere in between. We were looking at higher priced options (brookhaven and a local custom cabinet guy) and the IKEA option is less than half the cost. I am leaning towards the local custom guy, who does beautiful work, but I would like to hear further opinions of IKEA.
