Buyer's Guide to Kitchen Cabinets: Ready-to-Assemble
Box: 3/4-in. frameless melamine
Drawers: Metal sides, melamine front and bottom
Hardware: Adjustable cup hinges, integral drawer slide
Parts that fit. Thanks to careful machining, the precut and predrilled cabinet parts go together easily. Assembly of the 24-in. base unit took about 90 minutes.
Integral slides. Ikea supplies snap-together drawers that combine adjustable metal sides with integral drawer slides. A melamine drawer front matches the rest of the cabinet.
