We are considering remodeling our kitchen. We did the kitchen in our
previous house with Mill's Pride units (with solid maple doors) from HD,
and they lasted well for the three years before we moved. They have the
advantage of being frameless and of having steel drawer sides, both of
which contribute to more efficient use of space. They also had the
advantage that I was spending my time to assemble them rather than
paying somebody else to do so. Unfortunately, the range of cabinet
configurations of MP is more limited than in some other brands.
KraftMaid now offers "European-style" (i.e., frameless) cabinets, but
again the range of configurations is limited. Same story with IKEA.
Are there other frameless models that offer a wider range of
configurations? Or is there a good reason why frameless cabinets just
don't seem to be popular?
Many of the brands (e.g., Mill's Pride [sold only by HD], KraftMaid
[sold by HD, Lowe's and others], Merrilat [which I've necountered in a
hose but have never seen in a store]) are subsidiaries of the one
company, Masco. Is there anything much to choose between them?
Any particularly good or bad brands?
