Why Read Kitchen Cabinet Reviews

Why read kitchen cabinet reviews? That is a great question that we would love to take the time to answer. As the owner of the site, I have pretty good experience with kitchen cabinets. I have remodeled numerous kitchens and pulled out some cabinets that were just awful, below builder grade junk. These cabinets have no place in your home and our reviews are a great tool in finding out how different cabinet brands are rated. But you have to understand that most people are more inclined to leave negative reviews than positive. There is a saying about this - 1 bad customer tells ten people, but a happy customer only tells one. That is a great statement, but in the age of the internet, one unhappy customer is going to post a bad review for hundreds or thousands of people to read. Our site is littered with unhappy cabinet owners who have taken the time to voice their negative experience. So please use this information, but consider that all of these companies manufacture quality cabinets and have thousands of satisfied customers who have not considered leaving a review. The reviews on our site should help you make an informed decision about the cabinets you are buying. And if you have concerns, please ask your dealer to directly address any reviews you have questions on. I am sure that they will have many positive experiences that they can share for.

 

Our last request, if you researched your cabinet brand on KitchenCabinetsReviews.com, please come back and leave a review on the brand you purchased. Your submission is anonymous and your experience might help another cabinet buyer. We look forward to reading about your kitchen cabinet experience!

Cheap Kitchen Cabinets

We receive many negative reviews on KitchenCabinetsReviews.com relating to quality and we thought we would take some time to go over some of the things to look for when buying cabinets.

Price is always a consideration, but we don't think it should be the only one. You might be renovating to sell a property or you might be renovating to enjoy the benefits and comfort of a new kitchen. Either way, your budget should allow for quality cabinets. If you opt for the cheapest thing you can buy, you will be sacrificing more than just quality. The lesser expensive cabinet brands will use thinner materials to cut costs and their finishing process's most likely aren't KCMA certified. This could lead to sagging shelves, poor finish consistency and a general lack of durability. That is from the quality side, but you will also miss out on door style selection and finish choices that you will find from KCMA certified manufacturers. So when you are shopping, and you buy the least expensive cabinet available, your expectations for longevity and quality should be very low and we would expect your reviews to be less than positive. We recommend that your budget for cabinets be a substantial portion of your remodeling budget so that you end up with cabinets that you will love, from a manufacturer who builds quality products so that you will leave positive reviews for your cabinets.

Beyond price, there are other factors to consider. Warranty is one. Some makers include 5 year warranties, others limited lifetime. The 5 year warranties are generally from makers that produce great cabinets, but if you plan to be in your home for the rest of your life, you might want a brand that offers a limited lifetime warranty. Just as with price, if you confirm KCMA certification of the brands you are considering will give you confidence that you are buying a cabinet that will last.

Options are another factor to consider when buying cabinets and additional options can quickly add to the cost of your cabinets. We suggest you find a brand that offers the options that you are looking for and making sure that you are not paying for additional options that you don't need. If you give a designer your budget, they may add cabinet options that get the cost to your budget, but without them you could save hundreds of dollars. This can make inexpensive cabinets very expensive. In some cases it is even cheaper to buy cabinet accessories separately from the cabinets. Please do research on this before you buy and make sure you know what cabinets and options are specified before buying your cabinets.

Top 2 Kitchen Remodeling Tips

A kitchen remodel is a huge home renovation, but with proper planning you can eliminate much of the stress and make the process go more smoothly. Remodeling delays are one of the biggest complaints on KitchenCabinetsReviews.com and we think that the stress of a delay can be minimized with proper planning and scheduling.

 

1. The most important thing to before remodeling your kitchen is to make sure the cabinets have arrived safely in your house before you begin the tear out process. We are assuming that proper time was spent on the design and all of the cabinets that have arrived will fit properly. Waiting to start until the cabinets arrive is critical to minimizing your out of kitchen time frame and lowering the stress. Why wait? Because your cabinets might arrive later than expected, or maybe one important cabinet arrives damaged...or worst case scenario, you receive cabinets that weren't ordered properly by the installer or retailer and you have to wait for an entirely new shipment. If your kitchen is still in tact, the delay is simply a delay in time, not inconvenience because your kitchen is still functional. If your contractor wants to remove your old cabinets before your new cabinets arrive so he can get a head start on the project, STOP THEM!

 

2. Choose a reliable contractor. We see reviews with on the site all the time that relate to the installer. Comments like - "The project was delayed", "the doors and drawers don't line up", "the cabinets arrived in a different color" and the classic "the cabinets are particle board but should have been plywood". I am not saying that a contractor would ever knowingly order the wrong products or finish, but it happens and when it does, YOU (the home owner) are the one who will be out money and time. There are thousands of retailers and small business owners who are professional and honest. Make sure you are working with one of them. And make sure your remodeling contract contains a LIST OF CABINETS THAT DETAILS THE FINISH, SPECIES AND ALL OPTIONS ORDERED. You should demand this and have a signature line on the contract showing that you have agreed to the details listed. If you don't have this list and haven't confirmed with a signature, you could be surprised when the cabinets arrive. Problems like wall cabinet height isn't what you imagined, or the options don't match what was discussed and the finish or species don't match. ELIMINATE THE CHANCES OF THIS happening by working with reputable company, or by purchasing the cabinets yourself.{jcomments on}
