kitchen cabinet: wrong size, but already installed
I need some advice on this issue.
My contractor had all my kitchen cabinets installed (and the crown modeling cut and installed) before he realized this morning that Pioneer sent us the wrong size upper corner cabinet. The right leg is 3 inches shorter than in my KD's drawing.
I contacted my KD and she said that she had made the error, not the cabinet company. She offered to order the correct cabinet for me, but that solution would greatly impede the work flow of the project, plus cause extra labor, new crown molding, etc. It's not clear who would shoulder those additional costs.
It looks ok as it is, and except for some minor futzing with the undercabinet lighting, it won't affect the other components of the kitchen. The main issues for me are (1) that I'm losing some storage space and (2) this isn't the cabinet that the KD and I agreed upon.
Is it reasonable to ask for some of my money back? For something else? How do you decide on the appropriate compensation (if any)?
