    Alternatives for stainless steel storage drawers, doors, etc.

    I've been specking out my kitchen design and one thing I can't get over is how ridiculously expensive all the stainless steel components are... I can understand paying a premium for a quality grill/smoker/outdoor fridge (thank god I already have them), but paying hundreds and even thousands of dollars for the storage items is just crazy in my opinion.
    Has anyone found or seen either a nice alternative to the stainless steel storage items, or maybe a cheaper stainless steel storage items that won't brake the bank. I'm not looking for bells and whistles, rather for simple doors that open and drawers that slide out.

    There was a build on here where someone used wooden doors. I thought it turned out really nice. I agree I will spend the cash on grill but doors and cabinets just hurts.

    I'll look for it.... But, really, no cheap/budget option for stainless steel?

    The least expensive option we've found is BBQGuys.com - that's about as budget as it seems to get.

    Amazon has doors by Sandstone that are cheaper even than the BBQguys cheapest. Not sure about quality/flimsiness, they claim to be ss304 and the reviews look good. I am considering getting them myself. Not a lot cheaper though, maybe 10-15% less

    had built in wood cabinets with doors and drawers and granite counter tops. For one thing they require no maintance unlike my Firemagic grill. Instead of a bar ledge we just used one whole granite slab which makes it easier to put the spread of food and drinks out. Easier to serve large groups.

    Hi there, I thought I would chime in on this, as I am a welder also and have welded quite a bit of stainless steel, I would suggest looking for a near by welding shop with stainless experience along with fabrication, a good shop can fabricate what you are looking for at a decent price, I would recommend that all of the welding be done by the TIG method as this will give you the best outcome.

    Alternatives for stainless steel storage drawers, doors, etc.

    So I ended up picking up a stainless steel grill off Craig's list cheap and will be using the lower portion as door storage. Should come out just as good, but for the fraction of the price. We're moving into a new house in the spring, so will be buildings then, will post pics.
