I have Merillat through my whole house; kitchen, three (3) and a half baths. My husband built our home in 1998 and we still have the original cabinets. I just can't see buying new when these still look and function great. The only issue I have is that I wanted to order some more shelf units for the master bath and I can't get the same finish. We have European cherry throughout the main floor and washed oak on the second story and lower level. I love these cabinets. I feel bad for the people that have had trouble. It doesn't make sense that the quality differs so much. Merillat needs to get their quality control together so people can enjoy their homes, the way we enjoy ours.
