Choosing quality cabinets? So confused!
We are in the beginning stages of choosing new cabinets for our kitchen. I have gone to Lowes, Home Depot, Dixieline (still waiting on estimate) and a local design showroom. I also got a quote from a local cabinet maker. I am so confused as to which direction to go. I was thinking I wanted to go with the local design showroom who quoted me on the Bellmont 1600 line (formerly Pacific Crest Industries). It was the lowest priced bid so far but they really talked up this line. When I went to Dixieline today, the kitchen designer didn't even mention the 1600 line. He did mention the Belmont 1900 line, as well as Dynasty by Omega. When I asked him about the 1600 line he said that line was the entry level line. He sells them but more for apartments and such and didn't think it was a good option for a home. I am just so confused! Both sell the product but two different thoughts. Here is the link to that particular line:http://www.bellmontcabinets.com/
Now, Lowes quoted me on Kraftmaid and Home Depot quoted me on Thomasville those both came in about the same price. The custom cabinet guy would give me a better fit for my kitchen but was $6000+ more then our budget. I am still waiting on the Dixieline quote. The style is a Shaker style door, flat drawers in white/creamy white. I really didn't expect it to be so difficult to choose cabinets and when I have two people selling me the same thing but saying to different things, it is making things more difficult. I would really appreciate some input here. We have a budget but I still want beautiful cabinets. Thanks so much!
