IKEA kitchen cabinets were installed in the kitchenette and in many  other areas of the house.  IKEA uses a wood product that is very low outgassing of formaldehyde--German standards--in manufacturing their cabinets.  They have a large variety of kitchen cabinet designs that are all very attractive.  All the exposed areas are solid wood.  I picked the Adel Birch and am very happy with them.  My mother was surprised to find out how much more sturdy they were than the typical kitchen cabinet and is sorry she chose what she did for the  main kitchen.  The countertop is 12 X 12 inch granite tiles in black with a granite backsplash as well.  There is a 2-burner propane cooktop.  My favorite thing is the Conserv stainless steel refrigerator.  I love the design and it only costs about $1.50 a month to run.  The freezer is on the bottom and has drawers and an ice tray shelf.  The upper part is the refrigerator.  Every single shelf on the door and inside is completely adjustable.  There is also a wine rack at the very top.
