"Teacher"
We purchased six cabinets to upgrade a laundry room in our new house. Being a retired Tech. Ed. teacher of 31 years having taught cabinet-making a wood working I thought I knew what to expect from these economy models. The hardwood face frames were nicely finished and I liked the routered framework. The case work construction was another story. I expected to have them made of laminated practical board which they were however the construction was very poor to say the least. None of the 6 drawers would stay on the cheep guides which were attached to the back which was made of pressed paper backing. I fixed the issue by adding 3/4" hardwood reinforcement blocking on the sides and shimming up the front with 1/8" strips cut from the optional hardwood spacer. The drawers are now parallel and solid. The single screw that holds the drawer slides on needed to be reinforced with additional 1" screws to insure that they would not come out of adjustment in the future. The countersunk screws they use had only three threads holding the entire weight of the drawer slides on each side. The drawers are made with a simple butt joint stabled together which is the weakest type of construction.I Also drilled, countersunk and added screws to each drawer front and back as well. Each drawer slide is simply crimped on the bottom although it had 4 places to reinforce with screws which were missing. I added those and the slides pulled in tight and straight to the bottoms. I had to call and get entire replacement drawers as the nylon rollers of two were broken in half. This should have been caught by their "quality control" provided they had one. Had these slides been screwed on they could have been easily replaced. Now I have to wait 10 days for an entire new drawer to arrive. One drawer front was attached with no less then 36 staples randomly hammered on and was out of square by over 1/4" making it unlevel with the other drawers. Someone in manufacturing was having a bad day and again quality control was asleep. Although there was overkill on the staples the drawer front still was not fitting flush with the drawer. A better system would to used 1 1/4" wood screws to pull in in securely. Most of the reviews I read gave this outfit a very high rating based on the overall look. I give them that, they have a good first impression however how long with they last and stay together? They claim a lifetime warranty and when I called they didn't hesitate to send out the replacement parts. I still have yet to receive them to make a judgement call. Building them correct the first time would save the consumer a hastle and their company money in the long run.

"I really love having these cabinets"
All i can say is that these cabinets are very nice, they are elegant and modern at the same time and I absolutely love the color of them. Ive had these cabinets for about 6 months now, since i remodeled my kitchen in the winter. I really like the color of them, because it matches the floors really well and the paint goes well with them too. The only thing i dislike about them is the size, i wish they were a little bigger. These cabinets replaced my old cabinets that ive had for over 7 years, and the main reason i replaced them was just because they were starting to get old and they were chipping away. I definitely would recommend these to someone else to get if they needed them and i actually have told my brother in law to look into these because they plan to remodel their kitchen in the home they just bought

"Sophisticated design, fair price."
The American Classics wall cabinets were installed by my landlord last summer after we decided the old cabinets were far too dated. They instantly made the entire kitchen look amazing! They look fantastic while remaining affordable. The maple finish compliments most kitchens without looking cheap. The doors are sturdy and the hinges seem to be high quality. They offer the normal spacious design of most cabinets. The design, quality, and price make these cabinets a fantastic purchase. I may consider also installing these in my laundry room as their quality and design really add not only storage, but class and sophistication. I could see the sturdy design being great for tool storage above your workbench in your home workshop or for extra storage in a garage or shed. I am extremely pleased with the American Classics wall cabinets and would recommend them to any friends or family looking for a good cabinet for a fair price.

"Review of American Classics Cabinets"
I have owned this under sink cabinet for about a year now. I love the color and how it matches with the rest of my wood finishes in the kitchen. It goes very well with the stainless steel appliances. I am pretty easy to please and this was a pretty inexpensive piece which is why I like it so much. The hinges creaked somewhat when we first install the cabinet and there was no option to add a dishwasher are my dislikes of the unit. Also there is nothing really inside other than blank space, which for me is not a huge problem but I can see it being an issue with people who want little shelves here and there. In its short life I have never had to repair it. I would definitely buy the same brand again but maybe another unit and I have told my friends to go to Home Depot and check them out themselves.

"KB24-SW"
The white cabinet is not constructed as well as the wooden finish models. The white finish is a very thin & brittle plastic type overlay over particle board and the mysterious door material listed as 'other'. The wooden finish version has a wood door and the finish is on wood. The cabinet is flimsy, very loose and even the door on ours was mounted crooked from the factory. The particle board is very crumbly with plastic corner bracing. I recommend the wooden finished versions if you want it to last. If you want it white....just paint it. I owned both.

"Great Cabinets!"
We had these American Classics cabinets put in a few months ago to replace the ones that came with the house originally that were falling apart. Overall the price was pretty good and the cabinets are decent looking. When we first got them they had a weird odor, I don't know if that was the stain on them or something they used to install them, but it cleared up after a week or so. I really like the look of these cabinets. They are very basic, but attractive. They are really well made, the doors open really smoothly which is an improvement over the shoddy old ones we had. I would definitely buy this brand again, in fact we might see what they have available in bathroom cabinets when we redo the bathroom. I have recommended them to my friends that are remodeling. Great cabinets overall!

"American Classics: Solid Cabinetry."
When we refurbished our kitchen we chose the American Classics line from Home Depot since Home Depot had the cheapest installation in our area, and American Classics was their cheapest line of full hardwood cabinetry. We pulled out the old cabinets and the contractors had the new ones in in about half a day's work. This was essentially a full kitchen replacement with overhead and floor-to-counter cabinets. The cabinets have an extremely consistent finish that has a high polish and shows many attractive natural marks and grains. It has held up well to cleaning and resisted damage from many banging pots and pans, and has not required repairs since it went in a year or so ago. We were especially thrilled with how close to the example pieces our final cabinets were. The hinges are of similarly high quality and are heavy and sturdy. We did not pay for handle hardware (we bought and self-installed that, it was quite easy thanks to the hardwood doors). There are two issues with what we received: the faceplate covering the bottom of our sink arrived bent, and the kickboard that comes with cabinets is not up to the same quality as the other parts. The faceplate was replaced at no cost, and quickly (although credit for this is probably due to the retailer). The kickboard is a cheap composite with a printed or veneered on wood texture - presumably American Classics doesn't consider this important since it is concealed under the cabinets, but it still seems cheap. Many homeowners will opt to use plastic corner trim at the base of their cabinets, making this mostly a non-issue. In spite of these minor complaints, our cabinets are fantastic. Beautiful and sturdy, we would heartily recommend them to anyone wanting to refurbish a kitchen without spending their life savings.

"Quality cabinets on a semi hing end budget."
I have owned these cabinets for two years and they look like I bought them yesterday. I absolutely adore them. They are very easy to match with a nice color of tile and age gracefully. This brand of cabinets is available at most major retailers, their cabinets are top quality, their finish process is state of the art and their selection of cabinets, door styles and finishes is one of the best. If you are considering a new kitchen, this particular line is a great choice. Their warranty, as long as you own the cabinets, is one of the best in the industry. They offer many "custom" options and the only drawback to buying their cabinets is that they are on the more expensive side for semi custom cabinets. If you are considering these cabinets, you will end up with quality cabinets.

"Review of American Classics Cabinets"
We recently purchased these cabinets for a complete and total kitchen renovation. I was initially attracted by the price point as we were on a tight budget. However, what really surprised me was the quality of the cabinets. In the non custom cabinet market we didn't see a lot of appealing choices. We looked at several non custom options and these were by far the most durable and visually appealing. They have the look and feel of custom cabinets that were three times the price. We have had them in for several months now and could not be happier. So far there have been no issues. I would absolutely recommend these cabinets to anyone looking to do a kitchen renovation that wants to avoid the custom cabinet option. If we are doing any cabinet work or doing another kitchen renovation in the future, American Classics will absolutely be my first consideration.

"American Classics kitchen Base Cabinets"
Ive had thease cabinets for about a year. I like the color it goes with my flooring and i also like the space i get from them.they are also easy to install. they can get dinged up if your not carefull. i broke a door on a cabnet once, cracked it down the middle, and had to replace it. it wasnet hard to do just unscrew then screw in the new one that i had ordered. id buy the same brand again yes, quick and easy work and they are not too bad in the price regon. I would also recommend them to a friend or a family memeber. That are good cabinets.
