Merillat Basics are junk!

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!

We also had the option of the Merillat Basic line. Our designer did stray us away from that line though as she said the price was extremely low, the quality & options were not there & that reflected with the low price. I guess you get what you pay for.
