Do Not use Wolf Cabinets
I just wanted to post about my experience with Wolf Building Solutions since I saw some others asking for reviews.
After Hurricane Sandy I had to replace my whole kitchen but didn't want anything top of the line - just simple, functional white cabinets. My contractor suggested Wolf because they were affordable, made in the US and had a "mobile showroom" which would speed up the whole process. My first meeting with so called "kitchen specialist" Frank Stukey went well, he was pleasant, seemed to know what he was talking about and the cabinets looked nice. He put together a kitchen design that looked like what I already had, which is what I wanted. This initial design didn't have any exact measurements on it but I gave my approval, assuming both the "kitchen specialist" and my contractor would make sure everything was functional and made sense (huge mistake #1).
What I ended up with is a kitchen that is the exact same size as my original kitchen but with about half the amount of usable cabinet space. The worst was where he put in two "blind corner" cabinets with 10" doors - leaving absolutely no option for pullout shelves, lazy susan shelves or anything like that. So I have these two huge corner cabinets with close to zero access to the space inside.
When we went back to Frank to come up with a solution to make the corners more usable (I even assumed I'd have to pay for the fix since I'd approved the design in the first place) - he simply refused to help. The fact that he thought those cabinets were a good idea in the first place was bad enough, but not trying to help make some adjustments after hearing we weren't happy is unacceptable. My contractor is now left to clean up Wolf's mess and try to make what's there more functional somehow.
The cabinets themselves look nice but I have read online about the quality being lacking over time. I'll have to see how they hold up over the next months and years.
Shame on me for not doing more due diligence and not demanding to see plans with exact measurements. I'm just hoping I can save someone else the same headache!
