We had this same quandry when choosing cabinets for our kitchen last year. What put me over the edge (besides the fact that the Ikea cabinets just look so much better than the ones from Home Depot/Loewes) was the relative environmental safety of the Ikea cabinets-- they offgas way less than comparable products, and this was a concern for me. It wasn't easy to get this information, oddly, and I only got their brochure about it when I asked at the store.
If we had had a less tiny and awkward space, we definitely would have used craigslist. Nothin' better than used, in my book. There was lots of great stuff, some of it never installed, available when I looked.
