We have a big kitchen to build with 60 running feet of cabinetry. Our quote after haggling with Pedini is 35k. Our estimate for Ikea or Kraftmaid is under 15k. Our estimate with Medallion Cabinetry is 20k. We love the Pedini's style and construction but can't decide whether it is worth it. Are cabinets an investment in your home or just a luxury? Do they add to resale value? Our modern taste may not match with the average buyer. Thoughts?
Can you tell me a bit more about the process with Ikea, i.e. who installs, pricing etc.? I know they used the same hardware as many of the upscale brands. Do they stock cabinets or do you have to special order? Thanks Quote: Originally Posted by scottdurand If money were of no matter I would have Clive Christian.

We looked at Venicia on display at Lowe's and were unimpressed. Do you have any experience or any idea regarding pricing of Scavolini, Henry Built or Porcelanosa? Quote: Originally Posted by gdl203 I would look into these: Porcelanosa Henry Built Venicia by Kraftmaid Scavolini
Does anyone on the forum have any experience with a modern kicthen installation? My wife and I are building a new house and have been struck by the design of Poggenpohl, Alno, Balthaup, Poliform etc. We came across Pedini as a slightly lower cost alternative @ $700-800 per linear foot v. $1000+ per linear foot for Poggenpohl, Balthaup etc. The only cheaper alternative we can find besides Ikea is Venicia by Kraftmaid which was not very impressive at $300-$400 per...

For those of you who are disheartened, I purchased the Darlton Shell Wingtips in May of 2006 for $303. They very well may be available again at low prices unless they are being discontinued. I think a deep discount on these seems like a consistent pattern of RL. Quote: Originally Posted by shoe whoever missed out on the $354 Polo shell Darltons.
