Types of Cliqstudios Cabinets
Cliqstudios produce semi custom cabinetry. This means you’ll have a variety of choices available to choose from when buying a unit. Firstly you can select from contemporary, traditional or modern styles. Each of these are designed to complement the specific look that your home already has, so the furniture can get only wanted attention and not look out of place. If you are interested in other custom made cabinets I suggest you take a look at Merillat cabinets and Hampton Bay cabinets for more quotes.
Once you’ve settled on style you can choose the shape of your doors. There are 10 different styles, each offering a different shape and distinct look to your cabinets. You’ll have a lot of different choices to work your way through before even coming to your colours.
You can choose to have furniture board or plywood in your cabinet construction. Plywood is more expensive but offers a better quality and feel. It also makes your cabinet more durable to daily wear and tear. You’re also able to select the material for your cabinet doors. Options include:
Each of these have both a distinct look and feel to them, and your choice will be determined by your personal preferences and how your home is currently fitted out. The woods are sourced from trusted providers within America to ensure the quality remained high.
Once you’ve selected your material you have a number of finishes to choose from:
● Painted Finishes
● Stained Finishes
● Glazed Finishes
Each of these are applied by hand by trained workers and are designed to enhance the natural colour of the wood. Choose from light styles or dark colours depending on your other units and lighting, to get the perfect colouring from your cabinet. The finishes also protect the wood, giving a longer life span.
There are a number of special cabinets available from Cliqstudios. You can customise your storage options by adding shelves or drawers, this allows for maximum utility without a ridiculous price tag. Other features include glass doors, metal frames, light features and rolling gliders.
Cliqstudios cabinets have a wide range of styles, materials and colours to make them perfect for your home. Key construction features like a reinforced i beam and a toe kick area, make your cabinet durable and gives you furniture you can rely upon. Soft close features and modern hinges show how Cliqstudios have adapted with the times. Cabinets can take a beating in the average family home, but these manufacturing choices help them stand up to the daily wear.
Cliqstudios cabinets are the combination of style and function and the range of choice available is impressive, allowing you to keep control of the design process.
Cliqstudios Cabinet Reviews and Complaints
Cliqstudios seem to have developed some real fans, and there are a lot of positive reviews out there. People seem pleased with the process and despite some minor issues involving cleaning them customers are happy with their purchases.
There are some more vocal customers who seem less pleased with their products:
“I have been remodeling for 30 years and installed my first CliqStudio kitchen. They are junk the bottom of the barrel cabinets” - Darryl Z.
While it’s always the case that bad reviews will be more prominent than good reviews it’s still a little disconcerting. Isolated incidents do happen, but if you’re looking to have more reliable quality then opt for plywood options in your cabinets. Be sure to thoroughly check all units when they’re delivered and report any problems straight away to the manufacturer.
Overall Cliqstudios seems to have built a good reputation for themselves and while they have a more unconventional approach when it comes to sales they seem to have good American quality in their units.

Cliqstudios back their products with a lifetime limited warranty. This covers your furniture from all workmanship and material defects for as long as you own them. Always read your warranty thoroughly and check with your dealer about what exactly is covered, this will save you from nasty surprises down the line if something goes wrong.
