I recently bought several storage cabinets for my basement, and I just got this one for my kitchen. I wish, wish, wish I had bought this brand for my basement. Yes, this is made of laminate particle board, but it has some nice touches that are usually missing in inexpensive cabinets. First, the door is rounded wood (?) rather than just more laminate particle board. That means that it looks nicer and that there are no edge pieces to peel off later. Second, the back board (back of the cabinet) is actually MDF or something, not the cheap paperboard that you usually get. No, it's not wood, but that's a heckuva lot better than flimsy paperboard. The MDF (or whatever it is) makes the cabinet sturdier and more likely to survive a move. Also, the whole thing was a breeze to put together. I am so pleased with it that I just ordered another and will seek out this brand if I ever need another storage cabinet (which, given how cheaply made the other ones I just bought are... we'll see).

As I rebuild my house after Superstorm Sandy, I find I have less storage space than before. I needed a "pantry" type of cabinet that would fit in a narrow space by the door, and this matched the measurements. However, I didn't intend to use it for mops and brooms, and I wanted two more internal shelves. I phoned Prepac and asked if I could buy some, and at first I was told it would be expensive to ship them, because MDF is so heavy. I said I'd be willing to pay, and the helpful young woman on the phone put me on hold to go find out the cost. When she came back on the line, she said they'd just ship me two shelves, plus the relevant hardware, for free! That's a very rare attitude, and a wonderful surprise! It wasn't hard to put it together - pretty standard construction for this type of furniture. And now I have a place to keep canned goods, bulk foods like rice, and spare paper towels.

This cabinet was just what I was looking for. Using it with only one shelf since I wanted it for brooms and mops not for storing clothing. The sizing was correct. The cabinet is quite heavy therefore either assemble it where you plan to use it or get some help to place it.

My issue was more with the UPS delivery. The product walls were slightly warped and one wall had an imperfection that hides well where I put the cabinet. I believe these problems occurred when UPS took 4 tries to deliver the item in rainy weather...to wrong addresses twice or 3 times...and banged the heavy package (78#) and most likely got it wet. The packing was good or there would have been more damage from the looks of the box. The assembly was fast and easy. I decided to keep it in spite of the imperfections because it's to store brooms and you don't really notice the issues once it is assembled. The cabinet looks good and is just the right size for the space and use.

I ordered this cabinet because I never had a place to stash my brooms, dust mops, cleaning mop, etc. This fits the bill perfectly. Just tall enough to fit in those tall handles. I left off the shelf because I did not need it. The cabinet tucks descretely in the corner of my kitchen and looks great. Thank goodness I saw this and immediately ordered it. Thank you for a great product.

Perfect for small spaces. This is very heavy, 70 pounds, and should be assembled near its permanent location. Instructions are okay. I assembled this alone and it took over an hour. You should have a second person help hold the pieces together while screwing them in. I'm happy with my purchase.
we needed a tall cabinet for our hallway that was not too deep. this is perfect...easy to put together (or at least I think it was 'cuz I didn't hear any swearing comin' from my husband while he put it together lol)...the only thing i'd say i don't like (& it seems like it is the same with all of this style cabinet no matter brand name) is that the backing is cheap cardboard that does not stay on for long. I could live with it though, my husband just puts a couple of small nails in every once in awhile & it's fine for a little while longer. I would recommend this cabinet...
Assembly was quick, use of strong, long screws holds all together. Back of storage is fairly sturdy and held in by nails, rather than the cheap stuff using tacks. Door hinges very strong, slight downward horizontal sag from hinge side, but barely noticeable. Fits in the corner of our kitchen eat-in area and out of sight. Used not for the shelves, but for long handled items like swiffers and such. Door has rounded corners, nothing else. Would have been nice to have some design in the door, but at this price, ...satisfied with it.
This cabinet was exactly what I was looking for - the right size, shape. It was very easy to put together and the construction is excellent. Overall the cabinet is very heavy (78 pounds). Since I am using it to store brooms and mops, I was unable to insert a shelf, which I would have liked. Otherwise, I have only positive things to report.
