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).
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? It's white.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Excellent. Best in its price range.
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.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? color was as white as white can be
Please tell us about the quality of the product. This cabinet is just as pictured.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? Product description was very accurate.
We found it very fast and easy to assemble the cabinet. Everything matched up perfectly. It is heavy to move, had to slide it to area it would stay in. Even though it says a broom closet, it came with 2 shelves you can use it as a linen closet as well. Has a nice brushed aluminum handle .
It was easy to put together by myself, it lines up perfectly, looks great...
But, if you want to use it for your brooms, don't expect to put any of the shelves in. The broom ONLY fits if there are no shelves. You can figure this out for yourself if you check the measurements before ordering, but I had thought that it would be tall enough for my broom plus one shelf. However, now I just use it for mop, bucket, and all the other cleaning supplies. It's great!

This is a very strong cabinet. Building instructions were relatively straightforward but best if done with 2 people.
This cabinet has given me a good amount of storage for kitchen towels and detergents, etc.
One dissappointment was that while it came with 2 adjustable shelves, if you put brooms inside, there were no holes for the shelves above the broom height. So my broom is outside the cabinet and I am storing the bottoms of all my tall stick items in a pail on the bottom and the sticks outside. If you use this as a cabinet with shelves, you might want another shelf.

How hard is this cabinet to assemble? For someone that is not so good with that stuff- how hard would it be?med1125 on Jan 27, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
This looks like it would be pretty easy to assemble. You would just need to assemble the cabinet and then add the shelves that just sit on pegs.overstockcustomercare1 on Jan 28, 2013
Just arrived! very easy to assemble....lberkstresser on Apr 2, 2013
was very easy to assemble. If counting to wall, do not install doors until mounting is donejohnsr13 on May 13, 2013
We gave up once we saw the hinges and the need to adjust them - but we are not "handy around the house" people. A contractor friend actually assembled them for us. LOVE the cabinets!springlover22 on May 29, 2013
