I was in search of a cabinet that I could use in my small kitchen that wasn't going to be too bulky or crazy expensive. I was a little hesitant at first purchasing a shoe cabinet for the kitchen but I was more than happy once it arrived. It's perfect and I can even utilize the top of the cabinet as a bar top. And because I love it so much I am considering purchasing another one due to it's multi-functionality. I would definitely suggest this to anyone looking for something sleek that doesn't take up too much room but has lots of storage.
I was alittle hesitate getting this since it was shipped from CA going to NY Long Island, but well packaged (my son said) and no damage. So I bought this for my son in college for his apartment, I have not seen in but he sent me pictures. He said its perfect for what he needs, said it took him and a friend 2hrs to put together, he has never put anything together so I though that was good. I also bought the nightstand, so overall good product and a great product!
Read some of the top reviews. Of course the shelves are removable and of course the back is made of thinner material. It does hold a surprising amount of items. It's your standard overstock item in that the wood is obviously not real and the handles are a little too overly plastic feeling so the low quality ratings come there. Easy to assemble
Overall this is a great shelf that does not necessarily have to be used for shoes. I'm using it for clothes on one side and storage on the other side. Shelves are big and spaced enough for good storage capability. This shelf took me about an hour to put together. All pieces were labeled and the instructions were straightforward. I recommend using a power drill rather than the allen wrench provided. Saves a lot of time and hand cramping. Overall quality of the product is good. You will never mistake it for high end furniture but I think it is a step above **** products. Looking at it, it's hard to believe this thing weighs 100lbs but it is very sturdy. Overstock delivered this thing for free in about a week. Hard to beat that deal.
Wanted this for my guest room to put tv on and for storage. Works very well for both. Definitely need two people to put together. I liked the look without the doors and put baskets inside different compartments. Worked out reall well. Would work well is several rooms for different purposes. Oh yeah could also hold shoes.
This is a nice cabinet and was fairly simple to put together. My only complaint is the back side is thin plywood/cardboard. It is still a good value but not as well made as I hoped.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Nicely made, except the back panel is cardboard.
It took two people two hours to put this together. I was very careful with each piece but somehow when everything was up...I noticed some scratches on the face of the doors..so I dont know if it was already there or I made the scratch bc I assembled it on carpet. Anyhow...its great piece and hides all my shoes! I just wish the hardware were real metal instead of plastic looking ones. I will replace the handles in the future but this will work for now. great price!
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? exactly as pictured
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. good but the hardware pieces are cheap looking
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? good
I was looking for a storage cabinet for a new office space and this cabinet fit the bill. It came on time and was in very good shape. The photo and description matched the actual product perfectly. It took a while to set up, however, but that is the only negative. For the excellent price, I figured there would be labor involved. Very pleased with this cabinet and would recommend to others.
This cabinet is beautiful to the eye and fit perfectly in the space we wanted it. Here are the negatives: 1. My husband said the assembly was a challenge (and he's an engineer - he likes projects) 2. storage areas are small 3. hinges are weak
A little bit of a challenge to assemble but took my husband (with my help) about 2 hours to assemble. Seems really sturdy and serves our purpose very well for storage. Holds bins and baskets nicely. Great price.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? same
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. pretty sturdy
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? just like the picture
I ordered two of these cabinets. They sit side by side for the extra storage that I needed. There are difference with how tightly the doors close, the height, so it is fine if you have one stand alone, but two together, I can't guarantee they will look quite the same. All the same, love the storage that they provide.
It's a good alternative to drawers. I don't like drawers for clothes, and prefer open shelves. It does the job despite for the average quality (it's fiberboard/veneer and there's nothing exceptional about the craftsmanship). In five years, I could see this piece worn out, chipped up and sitting out by the side of the road with a 'free' sign on it.
This shelf would have received a much higher rating if the manufacture opted for metal handles and solid back. The back side of this shelf is cardboard, and the handles are made of plastic. To make it even worse, the cardboard pieces would not fit well at all, so I had to take them out. I can't return it because it's 80% assembled. Money down the drain...
