"Utter garbage"
I spent $27,000.00 on my entire house full of cabinets and got these cheap falling apart pieces of junk! I strongly recommend that you get cabinets elsewhere! Glue joints have let go, cabinet doors are literally falling apart, the backs are 3/8" particle board that won't even hold a cabinet full of dishes to the wall.

"Junk"
Not long after installation our Diamond cabinets we purchased from Lowe's started chipping and even pealing in places. We even purchased many upgrades such as solid wood throughout. The finish is awful. And to make matters worse I purchased the dark chocolate finish which makes it all the more obvious. These were not cheap cabinets. So disappointed. I will never buy this brand again.

"Wrong size, unfinished"
I ordered 18 Diamonod Prelude kitchen cabinets 8/2019, for $4287. These cabinets were very pretty, but we received one base cabinet in the wrong size, so we had to re-order, 10/2019. I also decided to buy 2 cabinet doors separately. I finally received the cabinet and 2 doors 1/13/20, and I was so disappointed. The base cabinet is a totally different shade. It looks unfinished. And, the doors--for $300.00, are shoddy looking. They have no uniformity in color. The Lowes salesman passed it off as personality and character, but the promo photos never showed anything like this. 99% of the cabinets are very nice and uniform in shade, and 1% is really cheap looking, with a totally different mix of shades. I would not go through Lowes again because their employee turnover is very high, and Lowes is too big to care about the customer once you have paid.

"Poor quality"
Some of the cabinets doors are bad. We had to order 3 doors 3 times to even find 3 that we could use. They still have flawls in them. They are poorly made, but the cost is high. I would never order from them again.

"Caspian"
Two cabinets were busted when we took them out of the box. It took a few days to get the kitchen sink cabinet replaced because they were not making those anymore and only could locate one at another Lowe’s store. We were pushed for time as we had already scheduled the counter top template so we didn’t even try to correct the other mess. The worst part is the cabinets are made of particle board. There is also an island and the corner of one cabinet is broke off. The trim will cover that. The cabinets are expensive and very poor quality.

Review:
"Awful Quality and Experience - Ruined our Kitchen Renno."
This review is about Dimaond at Lowes brand, made by Masterbrand. I wish that I had read reviews online before I went through with this purchase. I bought the reflection series Diamond cabinets from Lowes. A modest amount of cabinets was still quite expensive, especially w/ the plywood upgrades. This was my 2nd Lowes cabinet purchase, my first one was another brand, and it was a totally different (better) experience years ago with that one. Where to begin? Like other reviewers found online, the quality control coming out of the manufacturing facility is god-awful. Every door has issues with the paint finish - be it scuffs that don't clean off, unpainted insides, unfinished and unpainted edges, dings, dents, bruises, spots, etc. Multiple cabinets were not square. Multiple drawers were not square. The custom options/adders are nearly always WAY worse than the standard product, it's like a first-time woodworker took a hacksaw to the wall cabinets that had custom parts on it (for example the "end door" feature). It was truly embarrassing to see it. My first delivery of the removable shelves were completely unfinished. The laminate/veneer was not matching up, it's like somebody used a 10 year old rusty table saw to make the cuts. The company replaced incorrect things every time, but that means waiting another 4-6 weeks, which delays your project massively and means most of the time that the contractor is going to charge you for it (like mine). My installer gutted and renovated my entire kitchen, he's a professional wood worker and custom home builder - best of the best. The issues I had were not with installation, it was with the cabinetry and finish. The replacements are, 90% of the time, worse than the originals. Some items were replaced THREE Times, and after that much wasteful shipping/manufacturing, I paid my contractor to make the cabinet proper. He took several cabinets to the planer and table saw in order to make them square, and refinished the edges himself. How embarrassing for Diamond, and how expensive for the customer (me). Now I have enough bad cabinets in the basement to throw out, which will cost me even more, because they won't take back the old ones they have replaced either. Talk about environmental impact. The shipping, cardboard, Styrofoam, manufacturing, waste of people's time, and god the cost to EVERYONE involved. In the end I told Diamond I was tired of replacing their poor product with a worse one, and I wasn't going to delay my kitchen project any more (already doubled the time because of them). I asked for a reasonable amount of money back, they gave me ~10% which is a slap in the face and Lowe's also couldn't get any reasonable amount back from them. They refused to pay my contractors additional charges and advised that they also will not send any more replacements now that I'm taking the ~10% back option.

"Destroyed our kitchen makeover experience"
Almost every door and cabinet had an imperfections which spanned from: 1) poor paint job (some areas you could see the grain of the wood where other areas were completely opaque making an incredibly unbalanced and inconsistent look 2) multiple scratches in different areas 3) many bumpy panels which should have had a smooth, sleek finish.

"Unbelievably bad! Run, Don't Walk away! Am negotiating w/Diamond"
We have a huge kitchen. Our island is 17 ft long & 59" wide. Cabinets were supposed to be 'inspected' by subcontractor the big box company hired to install them. They apparently were inspected only for shipping damage & Not quality. Many, many issues. The Masterbrand/Diamond rep came to the house with the big box kitchen designer(designer is a pro & highly skilled). The rep agreed to replace many doors and a couple of 'panels'. Over the next few weeks the replacements began to arrive. The replacements were Worse than the doors/panels there were to replace! Today the 2nd replacement arrived. Same problem. Center panel has no stain or little stain/glaze where it attaches to the door frame. the raised panel in the center of the frame has no stain or glaze on each of the four 45 degree 'edges' where the routering changes directions by 90 degrees. It appears this door has been shipped in the past or else it just traveled poorly this time. Same as many of the 1st replacements. The 2nd replacement also has Blotchy Glaze in the center panel, just as the initial cabinets had, just as some of the 1st replacement had too. Am negotiating with Masterbrand & will update after the final 2nd replacements arrive and there is resolution.

"Cabinets started cracking with a year"
Our cabinet doors began to crack with about 2 years of installation. When we called Creative Kitchens (the company that did our kitchen,) we were told that that was normal do to expansion and contraction do to climate. That claim is ridiculous and that company was soon out of business and we didn't think we had any recourse. A number of years had passed when we were in Lowe's and saw that the sold Diamond. a salesperson gave us a contact email. My husband emailed them and we sent pictures. They sent a man to our house. He said he had never seen anything like this in 30 years. Where inlayed piece of wood was pinned at the top and bottom were all cracking. He said that all the doors should be replaced and he would recommend that. however, he does not make the final call. A couple of weeks later we got an email stating that the company believed that we pinned the cabinets and that they would not adhere to their 25 year warranty. What? How or why would we repin cabinets. The pins (staples) that they used are covered in the white factory baked on paint. their claim is ludicrous! This company sucks!

"Poor quality; bad customer service"
Our $17,000 dream kitchen which should have taken approximately 30 to 60 days to complete took 5 1/2 months to complete and turned into a nightmare. We waited on replacement cabinets for 5 weeks that had to be reordered because they were ordered incorrectly and was supposedly expedited but weren't; 35 cabinet doors/drawers in our total kitchen... of those 35, 17 had to be replaced or repaired; many doors/drawers had blisters under paint due to saw dust; many of bottom edges of top cabinets were rough/splintered as if cut by a dull saw blade; One replacement door had a factory reject tag on it because of orange peel in the paint but they shipped it to us anyway and obviously had to be reordered; Refrigerator tall end panel, which had been reordered 4 times, was finally installed 5 1/2 months after start of project but still had hole in it; We agreed for it to be installed since the hole was covered by adjoining cabinet and we refused to wait another 3 weeks on a replacement that would most likely come flawed like the rest; Throughout our entire ordeal we had very poor customer service from Diamond Cabinets, however, we had excellent customer service from Lowes; Project completed on June 14, 2019.....5 1/2 months later!

"Do not buy!"
If given a 0 rating was an option I would have given Diamond Cabinets a 0. In September 2017 I ordered my cabinets from Lowes. They were delivered in October. When the contractor was ready to install them and removed them from the boxes 14 of the 42 pieces we damaged. Some of the drawers even had holes drilled for pulls! After 6 weeks, rescheduling my contractor the replacements were delivered. During the installation 3 doors needed replaced because Diamond sent the wrong size. My kitchen was not completed until February 8 - it was supposed to be done by December 1. We left on February 10 to spend the winter in Arizona and didn’t return until May 1, so kitchen was not used for 3 months. At the end of October I pulled open my trash bin door and the door literally fell off! My contractor came out (at Lowes expense) and glued it. Less than a week later, my 3 pantry doors fell apart when I opened them. Again, my contractor came out and glued them. On closer examination we found others were ready to come apart, so I told Lowes that all 20 doors needed replaced. Lowes agreed and set out to get replacements ordered. Diamond never responded to Lowes numerous contacts but, around January 27 without informing Lowes that this was being done, delivered all the doors to my house and left them in a snow drift in my driveway. Since we were in Arizona until May, Diamond was told that The doors were to be delivered to the Lowes store. Fortunately, the man watching our house came by and called us immediately. I called Lowes and they had someone come out and put them in our house. So we got home and cannot get in our office because of the cabinet doors. My contractor will be out in about 10 days to install them. During all these 20 months Diamond refused to send a representative to look at my cabinets nor provide any compensation. Diamond cabinets produces an inferior products at inflated prices. And their customer service is nonexistent.

"Horrible!"
I bought the Diamond kitchen cabinets at Lowe's. I ordered the off- white finish and of course, they delivered white ones. It took another 4 weeks to get the right cabinets and at the time I was assured these were made specifically for me. A couple of years into using the kitchen the glazing started to wear off (awful!) and the white original paint showed. They give you a lifetime warranty, so i called Lowe's to get the doors replaced. The rep from Diamond and Lowe's came, looked into the issue and said, they will take the defective doors and re-glaze them. This was 2 and 1/2 months ago. They came back 3 weeks ago, took the doors off and ...not a follow up phone call, not a note as to when to expect the doors back. I keep calling Lowes, and by now the manager hangs up on me! At this point I am ready to sue them, the whole lot! Save yourself the frustration and stress. Buy your kitchen anywhere but at Lowe's and any other brand, but Diamond!

"Hall bathroom"
We had our hall bathroom cabinet installed by Mike Miller. He was on time, efficient, and accomodating. We had to have some adjustments and Mike made them as we requested. We are very satisfied with the service Mike provided.

"Gillan cabinets - coconut with almond glaze"
we went to several places pricing cabinets, finally settled with Lowes and Diamond cabinets -- Robin at Lowes was great, contractor - Andy was great; countertop place for quartz countertop --great --- cabinets --not great infact I would never buy from them again -- We bought all plywood cabinets and their quality control on these is terrible. out of 18 cabinets -- 8 doors were terrible quality -- you could see where they were put together --then no patching material added -- just painted so you could see all the cracks in seams -- we reordered these 8 doors -- 3 perfect -- the other 5 -- I could not believe -- 1 door wasn't even the right size or color -- other 4 were same or worse than what we have, So disappointing.

"Very Disappointed"
I was a littler hesitant about ordering cabinets from a big box store but was assured Diamond would be the way to go. We ordered the Diamond semi-custom cabinets from Lowes after Hurricane Harvey and was so excited to finally install the cabinets. The cabinets looked nice when we peeked into the boxes but soon noticed the quality left a bit to be desired. We were shocked that the quality was less than builder grade, in fact, not even close. The laminate and paint on the sides and underneath was already chipping / peeling, but what disappointed us more than anything was the lack of reinforcement on the backs and especially the the uppers. What I mean by this is the cabinets (although the front face and frame is suppose to be wood) there is no support other than the thin particle board across the back to nail to the studs. Our old cabinets (almost 20 years old) had a solid block of wood across the top back and even though it had particle board in the back it was twice as thick. What brought me to tears was when professional installers came by to quote a price for installation and asked, “How long do you plan to leave these “temporary” cabinets hanging because based on the quality, it is doubtful they will last more than a couple of years — which is not uncommon for this brand. I wish we knew to look at the back of the cabinets especially for the uppers and to pay attention to the backs on the lowers for the sink. We’re stuck now but hopefully someone else will know to be sure to confirm the quality of reinforcement on the back especially for hanging the uppers (so the front does not eventually lean forward or separate from the back or start cracking as soon as the cabinets are properly nailed into the studs. So disappointed.

"Many Issues"
After making the difficult and expensive decision to remodel our master bath, my wife and I were directed to ProSource Cincinnati for cabinets, granite and tile. The following details the numerous issues we experienced in our dealings with Diamond Cabinets. After explaining that we would like a higher-end cabinet, my wife and I were directed to the Diamond line of cabinets and selected a Cherry cabinet with an expresso finish. We purchased an 8-foot vanity and a floor-to-ceiling custom-designed pantry style cabinet. The cabinets arrived damaged, which isn’t necessarily a Diamond issue aside from the fact that the delivery agent consisted of one person to handle several large cabinets. A base cabinet was damaged on the bottom right corner – looks like handling damage as opposed to something that left the factory damaged. Upon installation we noticed that one of the pantry doors had a nick at the top of the door and several wood defects (a groove in the wood) at eye level. The top two doors of the pantry cabinet were a different sheen or different grain than the cabinet they sit on. Immediately obvious to anyone who looked at the doors. The front frame of the pantry cabinet isn’t square as the bottom left corner shows the raw wood of the side panel. Virtually every drawer (except two) of the vanity has a flaw, each of the four under-sink doors has a flaw. The Diamond Sales Representative for this area came to my home to review the cabinets and agreed to replace doors and drawers and then have a furniture refinisher come to correct any remaining minor defects. At this point, no one seems to be able to locate our replacement parts and we are left hanging. Of course, ProSource has been paid as well as Diamond. Folks, do yourself a favor and stay away from this manufacturer. Nothing here but poor craftsmanship and no one willing to own an issue to resolve the problem. A letter to Diamond senior management went unanswered.

"Prelude"
At this point, I most dissatisfied with these cabinets. They were installed in 2014, and at the beginning of this year (2018), the fronts began to crack. These were hair-line cracks that looked like the crackings of an egg. Since there is a lifetime warranty, Diamond agreed to replace all the fronts. However, the new fronts now are a nice white, but the base cabinets have yellowed and thus, they do not match the fronts. I am waiting to see what Lowes/Diamond will do to correct this obvious problem as it is quite noticeable. At this point, I would think long and hard about buying this line of cabinets.

"Look some where else....."
Colors of cabinets are different, panels on sides of refrigerator different color. Drawers not aligned. When called about the drawers they sent me a video to watch on how to wiggle the back attachment from their field man? Crown molding totally different color than the cabinets. Called them about the colors and sent them pictures and they told me sorry that's the grain of the wood? One cabinet looks like it a mahogany, the one next to it looks like it cherry and the one next to that looks more oak. Very disappointed after spending over 13 thousand dollars.
