KITCHEN - buy new base cabinet or retrofit existing with pullouts?
Hi - I'm new and have been enjoying reading these forums.
Seven years ago my husband and I bought an existing 20 year old house. When we bought the house we also bought the "to-do" list that comes with a 20 year old house. We intended on redoing the kitchen, but those $$ went to new driveway, new roof, new siding, new furnace etc, over the last 7 years. Because of this, I've decided I want to make the kitchen renovation "minor". We have a child with autism and living with a construction zone that would be required with gutting a kitchen is more than our budget or family can handle. We did that before kids at our old house.
I'm looking at getting new countertops, painting present cabinets and having pullouts installed in base cabinets instead of a major renovation. Here's the kitchen I'm speaking of.
Question 1 - would buying a new base cabinet online such as Barker, Sherrs, etc. be about the same amount of money as having someone else build and install pullouts in existing cabinets? If so, I'd rather replace some base units with drawers.
Question 2 - I've heard Scherr's mentioned positively on this forum but can't find any mention of Barker cabinets when I searched.
I appreciate any suggestions you have.
