Shenandoah build all of their cabinets to a high standard and use the best materials. All production takes place within the U.S and they take pride in every unit.
I have owned my Shenandoah kitchen cabinets in Breckenridge Maple Spice designed and installed through Lowe's since 2011. I thought they looked good when they were installed, and I think they still look great nearly six years later. Overall it's good craftsmanship and good products.
Shenandoah are part of the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association who impose strict codes and rigorous quality checks on their members. Their standards are high and you can feel secure in your Shenandoah cabinets. Other cabinets that abide by these standards are Thomasville and Kraftmaid!
Shenandoah are all about offering value to your home. While it’s true you get what you pay for with furniture, Shenandoah are offering some of the best craftsmanship for price.
Shenandoah Cabinets Warranty Policy
Shenandoah stand by their products by offering a lifetime guarantee for their products while you own the home they’re fitted in. This covers any defects in workmanship or materials. It’s worth noting that the wood will age naturally and change slightly over time- make sure to talk to an agent about that before buying. The lifetime warranty means you can have confidence in your Shenandoah cabinets.
My Final Shenandoah Cabinet Reviews
Most reviews of Shenandoah cabinets are positive. People admire the quality and durability of their products which have stood the test of time.
“Overall Quality is pretty good. Nice mid range cabinets” - CoastalCathy
Other users comment on the attractive qualities of the wood and the finishes. Several customers are impressed with the level of service provided and how the cabinets looked when fitted.
“The cabinets are absolutely gorgeous. Again, we bought the Maple McKinley Hazlenut Glaze. We opted for the all plywood construction” - Karly P.
Some of the more common criticisms of Shenandoah cabinets are about their add ons and doors.
“No idea how durable they are, but just can't get good doors for the cabinets.” - Kerry T.
It’s true that the door selection of Shenandoah is less than that of competitors. My advice is to go into a dealership and have a look round at all the options.
Other criticisms are generally concerned with customer service and damage during delivery. This is a dealer issue not a manufacturing one but be sure to allow a cushion of time to sort out any problems that might occur.
Overall Shenandoah are producing cabinetry that people are happy with. It’s one of the most affordable on the market and It’s saving people money across the country. Be sure to upgrade what you can for the best user experience. I hope you have enjoyed our Shenandoah cabinet reviews!
