Should I Use IKEA Cabinets in My Kitchen?

Q: My husband and I moved into a beautiful 1920s Craftsman last year and we love our home, but it needs a lot of work. We are planning a kitchen remodel this summer, with a limited budget and a laundry list of projects.

In order to get the most bang for our buck, I am toying with the idea of putting in IKEA cabinets instead of something more authentic and expensive. Is this sacrilege? I love our old cabinets and countertops but they are barely functional. Our drawers aren't so much drawers as they are boxes stuck in holes. I long for something that will make better use of the space in our kitchen.

Who has experience with IKEA cabinets? Are you happy with your purchase? Will I be cursed for replacing something so old with something SO generic? Please help!
