Your opinion and experience on kitchen cabinets.
March 18, 2014
After living with an ugly, dysfunctional kitchen for ten years, we are in the midst of planning a new kitchen. I am looking for honest opinions on cabinet brands and how they have held up. We have looked at kraftmaid, Decora, Innermost, Merillat, American Woodmark, Dura Supreme, Mid Continent, Yorktowne, and Timberlake.

I have had Merrilat cabinets in multiple houses and loved them. Even white holds up to numerous washings. Very well made with good hardware. Be sure to get the ones with 2 levels of pull-out drawers inside the base cabinets. Instead of a box with a partial shelf, these have study drawers that you can easily pull out to get at everything in the cabinet. No more getting on your knees to see what's in the back!

Thanks catlady. Our cabinets are builder grade Merillat now and they have held up very well. We have three active boys who have not treated them kindly. We will actually be using the old ones in the mudroom since it seems like a waste to get rid of perfectly good cabinets.
