Home Depot Prefab Cabinets

But, to Home Depot’s credit, they had the cabinets I needed in stock when I needed them, and we were in a time crunch. And despite the fact that they didn’t measure up to IKEA cabinets, the finished product didn’t come out half bad. (I also purchased just about everything else at Home Depot, including the GE gas stove and the cabinet hardware — they have a lot more options in that department.)

Chris January 26, 2016 – 3:46 pm We struggled with options two years ago for a basement bar – really a wall full of lower and upper cabinets with a bar sink and mini-fridge, it’s like 3/4 of a kitchen. We selected the Hampton Bay cabinets from Home Depot, had a great delivery experience (for $99 I think?), and have been very impressed with how they have held up. We have two young kids and, as a family, spend a ton of time in the basement, so the cabinets have seen wear. There was even a very minor leak under the sink for several weeks after we installed them. The leak went unnoticed for a few days and I have not had any issue whatsoever with the finish – the water had beaded on top of the finish and I just used a towel to dry it off. It seems to me like anyone with a clear understanding of what they are buying at this price range would be happy with either brand of cabinet.

At the time, this was one limitation of both IKEA and Home Depot’s in-stock cabinets — they only came in some fairly common sizes. IKEA did have a few more options, with multiple sink base sizes and drawers and cabinets at 12″, 15″, 18″, 21″, 24″, 30″ and 36″. The stock Hampton Bay cabinets had very few available sizes, and no irregular sizes like 21″ for instance.

In terms of overall cost, IKEA’s cabinets and Home Depot’s stock Hampton Bay line were roughly the same. We got a higher-end trim of the IKEA cabinets, so they could potentially be cheaper — but we got a small kitchen’s worth for about $1,600 total.

We ended up getting stock cabinets and a regular Kohler cast iron sink from Home Depot, and one huge, eight-foot slab of maple butcher block from Lumber Liquidators. (That thing almost killed me in the driveway.)

Summary: In general the factory precision of the Ikea kitchen cabinets is excellent. Not your “cheap Chinese” stuff here. The cabinets are made in the USA, the glass doors in Italy, the side panels in Portugal, the Blum hinges in Austria. In fact the only items I found that were made in China were the door and drawer handles. I have zero complaints about the product quality. By the way, JD Power rates Ikea kitchen cabinets quite highly.

Above, you see the results. Below, you can see how these kitchen cabinets looked before the transformation. It looks almost like a totally new kitchen. We particularly like the two-tone look of white cabinets on top and gray below. Check out the chalkboard painted onto the kitchen cabinets, too.

Rich December 3, 2015 – 2:54 pm If you’re in a pinch again, the “unfinished” cabinets at Home Cheapo are decent quality and made of actual wood, not MDF. A little sanding and a coat of high quality primer and paint and you’ve got a great looking cabinet at a fair price. We used these for a pantry rebuild and a large island install (sink, dishwasher, and cabinets) and it worked well.

During our planning, I researched the hell out of stock, ready-to-assemble, and custom cabinets. We ultimately decided to go with IKEA cabinets because they’re cheap, pretty easy to install, surprisingly durable, and look great.

Granted, that creates a small gap between the cabinets and the wall, and a perfectionist should trim the cabinets with some kind of decorative molding. (I just left it.)

Also, IKEA’s cabinets come with adjustable, self-leveling legs, so you don’t have to deal with tapping in a dozen shims just so in several different places trying the get the whole row lined up evenly. I didn’t realize what a lifesaver those legs were — particularly in a wavy house like our old lady — until I was on my 10th shim with the Hampton Bay cabinets.

And finally, the IKEA cabinets came with strips across the top of them that you can mount a countertop to. With most other cabinets, you’re kind of on your own in that department.

Kairi Gainsborough January 19, 2016 – 9:49 pm Wow, it is amazing that you can buy new cabinets for a kitchen for about $1,600. I think it sounds easier to get the the flat pack kits so you can assemble them yourself. It would be hard to take home a fully assembled cabinet in my small car. Thanks for sharing your remodelling experience!

I never thought I’d say this, but the cabinets we got from IKEA are pretty diesel. We’ve had them for four years now (most of that time with a small child around), cook at home almost every day, and still they’ve endured the abuse of modern family life admirably.
