Very disappointed

I've had these cabinets for about 12 years and they have not held up well. The doors are not solid wood and over time splashing of water has caused warping and swelling. Because of the unevenness of the surface, they can't be painted or refaced so there is no option but to replace. The paint wore away rather quickly on corners and around knobs and pulls, and is easily stained. The pull-out garbage container has had to have the tracks repaired numerous times. One by one, the door hinges have popped out a small, broken-off piece of plastic and once that happens the doors will not stay closed. We have had to put magnets on all of the doors over the years.

If you like to redo your kitchen every few years, these cabinets look great at first and there are many custom options. If you're like me and try to avoid major, expensive home projects as long as you can, look elsewhere. Other people have kitchen cabinets a lot older than mine that have held up much better. Solid wood is the way to go - don't let anyone tell you that the alternatives are just as good. I had to learn the hard way.

I wish I had read this before I bought my Decora Cabinets. I have had so many issues with the doors... The wrong size, chipped corners, halo effect - this being the one that makes me the most upset because Decora is very deceitful. They claim everything is wood on their doors, they are 20-30% more expensive then other companies for this. However the door panels are actually MDF, not even a wood veneer! They claimed this is done to avoid halo. I prefer halo with wood than halo with MDF. Don't know what will them how to make good quality cabinets and stop deceiving people.
