We have moved two times in the past 10 years & both homes have Merillat cabinets. Our most recent kitchen has Merillats Classic deluxe grade cabinets. They have the soft close doors & drawers which I love. We went with the Cherry upgrade this time around & the Armaretto finish looks amazing. Very rich with nice wood grain as well. They are not the best cabinets on the market but they fall right in the range we wanted to spend & have the options & quality we want as well.

Regards, Blake

We chose Merillat Basics, Homestead Birch for our new home and upgraded the drawers to dovetail and easy close. The fronts on these cabinets look good and are sturdy. That's where the good ends. The finish was so thin that it rubbed off in many places during installation. The sides of these cabinets are 3/8" pressboard with a photographic finish applied. The corners have flimsy supports that break away easily since they are just hot glued in place. The flimsy sides have a dado cut in them to receive the 1/4" back. As you can imagine, these break out easily too.
We would not have ordered these if we had seen the construction before hand. The cabinets in the showroom all have countertops on them so the construction is mostly hidden. When buying a home over 1/4 of a million dollars (not counting the land), you expect a certain level of quality. These cabinets are not it. I've gotten better from China!

I purchased our Merillat cabinets in 2001. They looked good for the first 2 years. After year 3 the finish was pealing near the floor of one of the cabinets. I called Merillat and they sent a "repair" kit consisting of a paint stick an a tiny vial of paint. The problem is the paint is pealing.
By year 7 the hinges on 3 of the cabinets need to be replaced. I found replacement hinges but not from Merillat. At year 12 all of the cabinets are showing wear around the handles and knobs. The finish of some of the knobs has worn off. Lastly at year 15 (today), the front of one of pull out draws fell off. The cabinet front is mounted to the drawer by a particle board plate. This plate tore from the frame just by opening the drawer.
My advise is do not buy these cabinets if you expect long life from a cabinet.

I am a professional remodeler and home builder. I have built nearly 400 homes and completed 200 remodels with various lines of cabinets but my go to cabinet has always been Merillat Classic with deluxe construction. They offer a reasonable range of door style and colors given the price. The construction using the deluxe construction is as good as any box cabinet on the market. Merillat does offer a lower end of cabinets called the "Essential" series which are to be avoided. Their upper end called "Masterpiece" is very good high end semi-custom cabinet line but you can find better value elsewhere. I would highly recommend that anyone consider using the Merrilat Classic Series cabinets with deluxe construction option.

It is tough to give star ratings because I have mixed reviews for a couple of styles/finishes. The painted cabinets (mixed Masterpiece and Classic) I purchased have a nice finish (canvas color), but the stained Honey Maple Masterpiece cabinets are, frankly, unattractive. They have a rustic appearance and a few dark streaks that look like blemishes, but are wood variations that should have been avoided on Masterpiece quality cabinets. The quality of construction is good, but not great. A few drawer fronts seem loose, but won't tighten up with the screws, so I guess I will be adding/replacing screws. I had the Merrillat rep at my house to address a drawer box that was milled improperly, but he was hours late and my wife could only show him the drawer. He couldn't find the problem ??? and did some BS roller adjustment and left. The next day I grabbed a chisel, a shim, and some wood glue and fixed it, but this is ridiculous service for new cabinets. Also, the design program at the dealer seems complicated for old school sales people. 2 Masterpiece cabinets arrived 4 inches short because the toekick was deleted on the program. Unfortunately, this was on upper stacked cabinets that shouldn't have a toekick, but somehow the overall height was never recalculated properly. We agreed to add decorative panels to the top to allow for crown moulding, but this means more work for me. The remainder of my project involves stained cabinets and a custom closet - I think I will look at something other than Merrillat.

We bought a house that has Merillat Cabinets in it. The kitchen is newer- so not like this is a old kitchen. All I can say is the cabinets are Cheaply made- the door beneath the sink doesn't close all the way- there was a drawer where the front already was pulled off and shows signs of repairs. The cabinets themselves lack in over-all function. Small pullout drawers, deep cabinets- where a normal sized woman has difficulty reaching. In my old house we re-did the kitchen using Home Depot and the cabinets from there were a much higher quality then these. Can't wait till I have enough money to pull these cabinets out.

What you see in the samples is NOT what you get. The cabinets were received have very thin doors, colors don't match on all and the wood markings on the doors are really bad. Have reorderd a couple doors 3 times due to the color not being the same and all have been different colors. You would think if you always order "Birch - Kaffe" the would all be the same color. Can't believe a company doesn't stand behind their product and quality of their work. You never buy again or recommend them to anyone.

I recently had a base cabinet and wall cabinet installed in a bathroom. My initial thoughts about the quality of the construction was that they were really no better then the cabinets you can purchase at Home Depot or Lowes. Solid wood front panels with lesser quality wood and veneer for the rest. The drawers are nice, but one of the drawer faces was badly aligned and one of the drawer locking mechanisms was defective. None of the drawer faces actually sit flush on the cabinet front when closed. The veneer finish is the worst I have ever seen. Prior to painting the walls I applied masking tape to the sides with veneer. When I removed the tape, numerous areas of the veneer pulled away from the panels. The veneer is so thin I can't even feel a ridge where the unfinshed "wood" was exposed. The contractor that insatlled them ensured me that they never saw this type of problem before. Not sure I beleive that one. The solution to the problem was to install soild wood panels on the exposed veneer sides. I was charged over $500 for the 24 inch wall cabinet so God knows what I paid for the base cabinet. Either way these cabinets are not worth the money.

We build our house 16 years ago and put in Merillat cupboards . We installed white and I cannot complain about the finish it has maintained the white surface and we have had two hinges that needed replacement. We received the new hinges totally free of charge no questions asked. I feel the warranty is great!!! we were told it was a life time for the cupboards. I would definitely recommend them and I am totally pleased with the construction and quality. We are presently renovating our kitchen counter tops and I would not even consider replacing my cupboards they still look great!!

The Classic cabinets are poorly made and horribly designed. What is displayed in the showroom is not what you will receive. The reps are extremely unhelpful when the bad cabinets arrive. This company should be ashamed of itself. Do not buy them under any circumstances. You will get better quality for half the price at the big box store like Home Depot or Lowe's or even Ikea. A huge waste of money. Perhaps they were a reputable brand once, but no longer.

 

Have Merillat cabinets for 27 years & they still look great.

Ive had Merillat dark oak cabinets in my kitchen for 27 years now. The only real change is the wood darkend over the years which I guess is a natural characteristic with all woods. After 27 years I would love to change my cabinets to something more contemporary like Maple. But I can't get the heart to take out these cabinets & throw them.
