Menards quoted me $6100... the RTA store is $5300 (not assembled).
Where does everyone else get their cabinets? IKEA is no where close. I would think I need a soft close as this is a $150K house in an A area.
Haven't done a flip. However, we get our cabinets pre fabricated from Home Depot and have a carpinter install them.
I just designed the kitchen for one of my units in a quad Plex at Home Depot using American Woodmark cabinets they offer special discounts for the REIA members in this area. They are pretty nice cabinet, good quality, dovetail drawers ect.I was very happy with the price. Home Depot also had a promotion 10% off granite countertop when purchased with the cabinets and it comes with a free sink.
I generally use Home Depot's white Shaker. Can get it in 30, 36, and 42 inch uppers which is great. Just have my contractor install them. For more upper end in my area (400K+) , I use a G. S. Building Supply in Seattle for nicer white Shaker. Then have my contractor install them. Can get the cabinets from either in a week or so if have to order sizes. Home Depot has most standard sizes in stock.
Loes is where we get ours
Next Day Cabinets. I have no idea if they are regional or national. I have received many compliments on the quality of their Forevermark Cabinet line.
Premium Cabinets I highly recommend.
In Oakland, CA, both Sincere Hardware and Granite Expo are (or at least were) cheaper than Home Depot and Ikea.
I got mine from Ikea. You do run the risk of them not delivering on time or forgetting critical parts/pieces since they use a 3rd party delivery company. I have had friends and colleagues have good success with Home Depot. This will really depend on the area you are flipping in because the end buyer will expect a certain level of finishes in order to pay top dollar.
Did a few kitchens and i agree with everyone here on the big box retail. If you buy HD or Lowes off the rack it is almost headache free. One is dinged and you take it back. Set them a couple inches below ceiling and then have a skilled carpenter come in and place crown and trim—can turn out really nice, especially with nice countertops and under-mount lighting.
