In Response To: Kitchen Countertop (Tracie)

May I suggest that you look at the Mill's Pride assemble-it-yourself kitchen cabinets. You can pick up a catalog at a Home Depot store and browse through them in the comfort of your home. I will also recommend that you buy the kitchen layout kit which will allow you to play with your design. Additionally, they also provide a video which you can view to learn how to assemble the cabinets. Instructions are provided with each cabinet or drawer. Then proceed as follows to install the drawers and countertop. (1)Buy the base cabinet (the shell)in the size you wish your countertop to be. They come in increment of 3 inches, stating at 9 inches and going to 48 inches. You can stack them next to each other in varying length to create the countertop you want. (2)Order the optional drawers, 3 per cabinets. They come in varying depths too. You want a set of 30" drawers with a 30" base cabinet. (3) Finally, order the countertop to your specification. The countertop is normally 1-2 inches longer at each end. (4) Install the countertop. You use the plastic anchors that come with the base cabinet to secure the countertop to the base. You may also use right-angled brackets (which I recommend) to fasten the top to the base. You do not need to buy separate legs for your countertop. The base cabinet is the structure that supports your countertop.
