If you find yourself challenged to assemble an IKEA bookcase, then the idea of assembling a full kitchens worth of cabinets may be daunting, but when you need a new kitchen and you’ve got more time than money, the use of IKEA cabinets can save you thousands of dollars.
If you want your contractor to assemble and install IKEA cabinets be sure to tell them up front so there are no surprised. Because assembly is required, it takes much long to assemble and install IKEA cabinets than it does pre-assembled cabinets.
