Kitchen Cabinets - Cliq Studios vs. Medallion
I am planning and budgeting for kitchen remodeling and after doing some research online and getting some quotes from local cabinet stores, I narrowed my options down to either Cliq Studios cabinets or Medallion Silverline cabinets.
I summarized the specs of these cabinets and here they are.

Based on what I read on this forum and other reviews, Medallion silverline offers decent quality cabinets but looking at the specs, Cliq Studios cabinets offers much more for smaller amount of money.
Can anyone who have Cliq Studios or Medallion Silverline cabinets share the experiences and thoughts?
I think I am going with Cliq Studios cabinets but would like to hear real voice of owners who have them.
