What is Too Cheap
I was playing around with the IKEA kitchen planner and couldn't figure out why the cabinets weren't changing quite right until I started suspecting the Nexus Brown/Black was being discontinued. Ahhhhhh, when I did some internet searching, I was sadly right.
I spoke with the IKEA salesperson and she too was VERY surprised that it had been discontinued being that they were very popular. The odd part is that they are still being sold in Canada....too far.
They do have a substitute that is made out of melamine & polypropylene foils. I read that fingerprints are a problem & there were a significant amounts on the ones on display compared to other cabinets.
I liked but never loved the Nexus Brown/Black ones (they seemed to have a dull finish). These new ones look very similar but have a nicer sheen but wow these are basically plastic cabinets.
They are VERY inexpensive though with a door as little as $8. Part of me just says that just go with them, being they are soooooo inexpensive and I can replace them in years to come if I begin to hate them. Another part though thinks is this just to cheap to put in a semi custom home. Is that just being a kitchen snob of that's not good enough for my kitchen. Resale is not an issue.
