Is it wise to purchase my kitchen cabinets from Ikea?

Ikea is a great place to find good ideas for design. The one issue is that all of their products are shipped in pieces, like a puzzle, from Scandinavia. This is ok for tables, chairs, and shelving. However, in the realm of cabinetry it can be problematic.

The act of building the cabinets, before their installation, can be difficult due to missing pieces, (which sometimes occurs), and can delay a project waiting for the pieces. When purchasing cabinets from a local merchant they are already put together making them easy to install.
