cabinets made in china?? torn and have questions.
ok- we are down to the wire to order. we have our final appt w/ HD tomm and I am going to a KD tomm to get prices on similar cabinet brands.
We've been working however w/ a guy that has a warehouse in So CAL but his company also does premium custom cabinet making but they are made in China. his product is beautiful. it's all hardwood/plywood, dovetail cabinets he brought a mini cabinet to us and it was solid and beautiful and they have a showroom in OC.. they have the color we want and love.. they do the custom making w/ all the extras included- lazy susan, side panels to match, corbels, spice rack, wine rack etc etc.. now we haven't priced these extras w/ HD yet but we are already just at 4000 below the custom cabinet guy w/ out any extras,and upgrades to plywood, corbels, self closing drawers, lazy susans etc. any upgrades on colors etcc..
we think we have found a phenomonal product, we 've asked questions about type of wood, ordering, warranties, etc. they even have a website.. they can custom order at this price because they make in china.
the downfall is it's in CHina not local and of course travel time.
the guy is willing to work w/ us now also he knows we are looking at other vendors etc.. i've yet to get a KD price but I am going to.
so w/ that any concerns i should have w/ imported products, even though i am sure lots of things are from there and made there.. but the product does look very well made to some other cheap cabinets we looked at the other day that are made in china and we could do our whole kitchen for 6000.00 but you could see how flimsy they were. and they are more stock/semi custom
these are custom , premium, wood is birch for face which is similar to an alder product and all plywood
sooo. we are kind of torn..
