We are in the process of remodeling our kitchen. Our Decora cabinets are installed, but we are waiting on 2 upper cabinet replacements. The upper painted maple cabinets had several door finish marrings and a minor splitting problem on the trim. There was no problem whatsoever with the stained lower cabinets, which are made from alder. We love the look and construction of the Decora cabinets. The interiors are made from all maple plywood and finished. The soft close doors and drawers come standard as did the maple interiors. They are as close to custom made as you can get in any other semi-custom cabinet, which means they didn't charge extra for any augmentation (as low as 1/8" & up increments) in dimensions like another brand of popular big box store cabinets. Decora and our cabinet designer have been great to work with. They weren't nearly as expensive as the brands sold by XXX and XXX. In my opinion they are a better quality and construction than KraftMaid, Diamond or Thomasville that are sold at these stores. I highly recommend Decora cabinets. We did a whole huge 21'x15' kitchen with an 8'foot island for a total under $10,000. I think that is exceptional competitive pricing!
