Before making up your mind, get some bids from local cabinetmakers and see
what it would cost to have them custom made locally. You can often get
better quality cabinets for the same, or a lower, price; you won't have to
deal with wasted space from standard sized, mass produced cabinets (no
matter how pretty they look in the pictures, they never quite seem to live
up to expectation when installed); and you should get problems along the way
solved much quicker ... it is almost guaranteed there will be some potential
'show stoppers' at some point along the way.
That said, are you certain that you need new cabinets? New doors, drawer
fronts, and upgrading visible side panels can make an old kitchen new again
for a lot less.
