    My family is considering moving, and what I would like to know is: How much would it cost to get custom cabinets(or just cabinets) wall to wall? How hard/easy are they to make/buy?
    Thanks
    Emily

    My cabinets came from IKEA (http://www.quiltingboard.com/posts/list/4493.page) and I think they were just under $200/each with the glass doors. I know the solid doors are cheaper. My friend got nice solid door cabinets at Walmart, and seems like they were about $100 or less, not sure. Mine were pretty simple to put together - they had reasonable instructions! Target also carries some furniture too, as do the warehouse type places like Costco & Sams Club. And the ones without doors are less $$ too, but since I have a cat, I thought the doors might help keep the cat hair out :wink: (Plus, I keep the door to the room closed too...)
    You might check around at thrift stores for bookcases too - they are always finding cool stuff there on those decorating shows! If you, or someone you know is a bit handy, maybe they could add doors to a regular bookcase if you wanted.
    :D

    In some areas, Habitat for Humanity has stores where you can get cabinetry at reduced prices.

    If you are looking at custom cabinets, the specie of wood makes a HUGE difference. you can literally spend thousands--no kidding....

    My brother is a woodworker and makes them all of the time. For his mongo giagantic kitchen, I know he spent about $11K making his cabinets himself. Now, I should add, they even have a special cabinet where the mixer pops up by itself......

    It's whatever you want to spend........ :roll: I just hide dishes in there :wink:
