We are considering replacing our kitchen cabinets with Ikea cabinets. Does anyone out there have any experience with these cabinets? I don't want to spend thousands of dollars on something that will fall apart in a few years.

Be careful... IKEA cabinets only have a 5 year warranty on them... I had them in my bathroom... had problems with the finish and delamination... I LOVE their furniture and have MANY pieces all around my home... I would not use their items in kitchen or bathroom though. Just the amount of use...

We just re did our kitchen, ourselves... we used Home Depot's off the shelf (assemble ourselves) cabintes... MILLS PRIDE... this has a lifetime warranty. And we found while assembling the cabinets and calling for replacement parts on un acceptable items (minor blemishes) that they were more than happy to NEXT DAY replacement parts and door fronts to us FREE OF CHARGE! They were extremely inexpensive but dont look that way in the kitchen!

We did our 8 x 12 kitchen area for $2000... and we have ALOT of cabinets! They were easy to assemble, just like IKEA furniture, and look like a professional finish. The only thing we had someone else do is the corian countertop we wanted... thats a job for a pro.

If you can assemble IKEA furniture, you can do the MILLS PRIDE kitchen! If you want, I will send you a picture of the kitchen we did as novice do-it-yourselfers... just let me know directly via email.

I dont work for Mills Pride either... There are MANY choices and variables to choose from and MOST kitchens can be set up from off the shelf products! Give it a shot!

Thank you - the warranty issue is definitely something to consider. I am already nervous because every Ikea dresser we've ever bought has fallen apart. I'll take another look at Home Depot.
