So with interest rates so low we've decided to refinance and pull out some equity to redo the kitchen; we're cutting 8 years off the mortgage, getting enough to redo the kitchen, and our payment stays the same . We're the original owners, but I hate the way we did the kitchen and the cabinets are cheap and falling apart so they need to go! We really like the Ikea kitchens. They have a great warranty, have very flexible designs, and seem very sturdy. I would like a little more choice in styles/colors, but I can deal with it given the lower cost and flexibility. So - does anyone have an Ikea kitchen? If so, I would love some tips from someone who has BTDT. We are planning to have Ikea do the whole project plan; dh and I have neither the time nor the talent to do any of it ourselves, and if something ends up wrong I don't want us pointing fingers at each other, lol. At this point we aren't planning to replace the appliances, well maybe the microwave, but that could change if we decide to change the layout of the kitchen. Any advice, success stories, or horror stories?
