I am not an environmentalist, am not anti business, and am a devout capitalist.
That said, 99% of what IKEA makes is crap destined for the landfill. I have never bought anything from IKEA that I did not end up giving away or throwing away because I was unsatisfied with it.
You would be alot better off putting together an unfitted kitchen out of second hand shops and buying decent quality appliances.
I don't think you have them in OC but Habiitat produce fantastic quality kitchens at really affordable prices and they have Matthew Hilton as their design director.
The kitchens are solid wood, not particle board.
I won't buy anything from IKEA again.
JaseinOC saidI know... a totally random topic. But I just saw a commercial for Ikea kitchens. And I was curious, cause I have never bought anything of value from Ikea cause what I do buy I know is cheap and I expect it to fall apart, or have hinges break, or the wood crumble or something.
Would anyone actually upgrade their kitchen with Ikea cabinets and stuff??
