ThreeDog - you can also get Blum hardware at Both Lee Valley Rockler will send you a catalog. You might find that prices vary somewhat between dealers and it would be worthwhile to comparison shop. Blum makes several different kinds of drawer slides, for example, so be sure your're comparing the same one. I just googled Blum hardware and got a gazillion hits.

GMF3 - A well made veneer is very durable. You won't want to soak it, but it should hold up to normal usage. I think it's mostly a matter of which appeals to you.

We are in the midst of designing a kitchen using Kraftmaid's Venicia line. We love the european look of the Kaffe Cherry slab doors...BUT I am worried that the cabinet boxes only come in particle board. I have been thinking of changing my order to traditional Kraftmaid Cherry slab with all wood construction. The traditional slab in Kaffe will have more variations in grain and color, than the Venicia veneer slab. Will I be losing the sleek european look that we want? Does anyone have advice?

We used the traditional Kraftmaid cherry slab doors in our last house. You can find a pic on the web at my realtor's site. I can't link to it, b/c she uses frames. Go to, click on five star properties, then search for 3104 to find the listing for 3104 18th St NW. (You could also scroll down until you find the listing, but that would take forever.) Click on that link and you get a bunch of pictures of the house, including one of the kitchen. (In the other pics, note the wonderful juxtaposition of Edwardian details and Ikea furnishings!)

Our Ikea kitchen is 10 years old. We chose Abstract fronts in light grey (which were discontinued at about the same time) and are still very satisfied with the look and the quality. We took our time to install it properly and nothing has ever fallen apart. All you need to do is adjust a hinge from time to time. The glossy fronts are extremely easy to clean and still look like new.

Of course, Bulthaup co. build much better cabinets, and they are beautiful. But even here in Germany, they are way too expensive.

When it comes to best quality for very little money, Ikea kitchens are simply unbeatable. IMHO.

I had the worse experience at Chelsea Custom Kitchens. They were pricy and really really rude. They have bad follow-up and didn't even send me a proposal. They assumed that I could not be making more money than my husband and that I needed to check with him before I made a decision. I def don't rec them. Thumbs way down- poor service and really disappointed.

I am an architect in N. Florida. Many of my clients have had great difficulty trying to get a modern kitchen at a reasonable cost. Beside the problem of finding someone to build one, I've found that almost none of the kitchen designers understand how to design with the modern aesthetic. As a result I began designing kitchens for my clients as part of the plans. I have since set up a program with a wholesale casework fabricator in the area. This allows me to offer completely custom european style kitchens to my clients at very competitive rates. I have included some pictures of projects that I am currently working on.
