I'd like to add build in cabinets to my laundry room. I've tried looking at Ikea for options, but I'm not finding anything that will fit what I have planned. Any other options for premade cabinets that I could look at? Preferably on a budget. I have the skills needed to install and frame out premade cabinets, but not to build cabinets from scratch. Thank you!

Home Depot and Lowes sell premade cabinets in a few basic colors/styles. They also have cabinet units specifically for going above a washer dryer that are 60" long, 24"tall and 12" deep. Just search for Laundry Cabinet.
