I've done several projects with some online cabinet stores and would like to recommend them because their products are darn good for the price you pay and the quality you get. They may not be for everyone, but if your shopping online for cabinets, give them a shot.

In the past 2 years I bought kitchens cabinets and vanities for about 20 houses from a RTA kitchen cabinets online wholesaler. My clients and I are complete satisfied with the product and the overall designing and ordering experience. Currently, about 70% of my clients choose their white shaker cabinets. Their products are made in China but they are way better than the white cabinets I got from other places. One piece solid wood door gives it a seamless look.
I don't believe all cabinet from China are bad. There are still regulation in China (may not be as strict compare to U.S.) that cabinet factorys have to meet.

Besides, U.S. import/export department is already putting alot of pressure on Chinese import.
