IKEA KITCHEN UPDATE DRAMA: After several unreturned calls and emails to the company that sources out the installation of the kitchen cabinets for Ikea, I finally reached someone who was condescending and nasty. Someone from Ikea had sent him the wrong design, prompting an incredibly high estimate for installation. When I called him to see how we could correct it he told me there was absolutely nothing we could do, the error was my fault, etc. While I wanted to rip his face off through the phone, I calmly walked him through our process to date (he intimated that because we didn't opt for the Ikea associate to design the kitchen in-home at a fee of $250, we screwed the whole thing up). After giving him my credentials and mentioning that not only did I measure and design the new kitchen, so did my architect. He calmed down and told me how to forward him the actual design and promised to get back to me with a revised proposal. It's been 24 hours and I've heard nothing. SO, I'm heading to the Home Depot to look into other options. Stay tuned!
