Six years ago, nancy walker Arnold, formerly of Marchand kitchens in new orleans, designed a gorgeous dura supreme kitchen, in harvest cherry with coffee glaze. She also designed beautiful, matching bookcases and mantle for the fireplace in the adjoining den. Marchand kitchen's installers, Jude Lemoine & team, installed them. My dura supreme cabinets still bring me great pleasure. They are a work of art. I have the soft close drawers and deep pot and pan drawers. The quality is exceptional. The cabinets are handsome, they are holding up well and they function beautifully. My kitchen still looks brand new, 6 years later.
I used dura supreme over the past 2 years for new vanities in my master bath and guest bath. This time, Susan bays of Marchand was the salesperson, with the Lemoine team again as installers. I chose the antique white paint with no glaze for the bath vanities. Again, the results are beautiful. The bath cabinets are performing well.
As far as humidity is concerned, we live in a humid environment, but have good quality air conditioning system. We did lose power for several days during a tropical storm, but the cabinets held up well despite the warmth and humidity.
My dura supreme cabinets are lovely. I am highly satisfied with the quality. Quality and durability is of upmost importance to me because this is our forever home (God willing). We don't redecorate based on changing fashion. We intend these changes to last for as long as we stay in our home, hopefully well into our senior years.
I don't understand the negative reviews at all. My experience is completely opposite.
