  1. I have been installing Waypoint cabinets for about 4 years now & they are definitely better than most cabinets and especially for the price. The plywood is a 3 ply furniture grade. The doors & drawers are always soft close. They always stand behind their product as well.

  2. I did not have a pleasant experience with my kitchen. Takes 3-4 weeks to order missing parts. The installation was overwhelming. It is been 2 months since we got the cabinets and can’t complete the project. I like the door quality but not the cabinet structure. The splash part from the bottom cabinets are very thin and come off very easily.

    The isle is a set of multiple cabinets and it is a nightmare trying to align them. Very expensive cabinets in my opinion for too many issues- 20K . The door cabinets are not aligned and the light fixtures were not mounted.

    I will recommend to get a very detailed invoice from your vendor and have everything in writing like the appliances that will be used in the cabinets and a full description of the installation cost since hardware, door alignment, mouldings, light mouldings will not be covered.

    I will recommend to have your cabinets made by a professional instead since the measurements can be exact and will fit your needs.

  3. My cabinet door nearly fell on my head last night! The screws are too small! Good thing I had someone who could hold the door, so I could secure it for repair today. I have a set of 8 Corelle dinner plates, salad plates, bowls and salt and pepper shakers in the cabinet. I wouldn’t recommend putting anything heavy in these cabinets.
    Several boxes arrived with damage product and extra pieces arrived. Weird.

  4. We recently completed a complete kitchen overhaul and for the most part are very pleased with Waypoint cabinets. We purchased the 720R in Maple Auburn Glaze and Hazelnut Glaze. While spending close to $20,000 on cabinets, they still represented a very good value for an American-made product. We topped the base cabinets with high end granite(level 4…if you’re into the granite marketing thing).

    Hardware – everything is soft closing except the trash and spice drawers
    Finish – appears to be very durable
    All plywood construction

    Some sloppy glue work
    Contractor lost a lot of the shelf bracket hardware so we had to buy more

    Depending upon your contractor, your mileage may vary. Our finish carpenter was very detailed and did a spectacular job getting the look just right. Our electrician came in with Sawzall and broke the dado joint on one of the wall cabinets after installation…a real bummer that required blocking and glue to fix.

    All in all we achieved a very high end look with this mid-grade cabinet line. Custom would have put this large kitchen out of our budget range.

    We would buy Waypoint again.

  5. I am extremely disappointed in my decision to go with Waypoint. I ordered a knee hole desk for the kitchen, filing cabinets on either side and a pencil drawer in the middle. Unbelievably, the face of the pencil drawer did not match the rest of the kitchen. Waypoint went to the trouble to make a face that looked like something I could make in my garage; it was not mitered and the profile did not match. After rounds of phone calls with Waypoint and the dealer, they tell me that there’s nothing they can do and they will not make a matching face because they’re not ‘set up for it’. They must not make their own faces, because if they went to the trouble to make the face they sent, they could have used the correct/matching profile. If I had been told that after spending $14K on cabinets, that one of the faces wasn’t going to match all the others, I would have stayed away from Waypoint!

  6. I have installed many different brands of cabinets over the years. The past 3 years I have seen more in the Waypoint brand. Fact is as others have mentioned that there is no perfect cabinet brand or maker. I have had many high end brands ship poorly constructed cabinets to customers. Waypoint does seem to have less problems & the small issues that have arrived at the job site were fixed in a timely fashion. They use good hinges & drawer runners. Also the grade of 3 ply-plywood they use is better than most. I would say they are definitively an excellent cabinet for the price.

    • I just finished installing my kitchen cabinets and I can honestly say I am quite disappointed on waypoint products;

      Was told. Cabinet delivery would be 30 day delivery from time of order took 42 days
      Have both stain and painted finishes Both finishes are orange peel and very poor spray job
      Fillers and many cabinets came with crushed corners
      Quality of plywood on side of cabinets on many had hairline gouges on the veneer
      Two doors will need to be replaceed of 17 cabinets shipped with defects
      Shelves clips clear plastic were shipped broken
      Tall panels for built in look at refrigerator only had one good side, due to scratches and poor finish.
      No touch up paint or stain stick – why not?
      Cabinets racked and out of square
      If you look from the top of cabinet to the bottom you can see curve in the plywood
      Haven’t installed three piece crown moulding yet, tomorrow’s task
      Don’t waste your money or time.

  8. I just spent over $20,000 on Waypoint kitchen cabinets and I am thoroughly disappointed in the quality and the contractor with whom remodeled my kitchen. First item, the cabinets are not square so the drawers in the cabinets seem warped. One side of the drawer closes against the front of the cabinet and the other side does not. There is not adjustment system in these cabinet to compensate for this irregularity. Second item, the first time I went to put dishes in an upper cupboard, the whole side fell off because the nails missed the back of the cupboard and there were never glued. Third item, the bottom of the upper cupboards are not screwed inside so all this crooked screws and screw whole are visible and make the cabinets look cheap. Fourth item, the wood used in the door construction is thin with obvious flaws which once again make this cabinets look cheaper then off the aisle cabinets at a Home Center. I have waited 4 and half month for products to come in and be installed and am currently still waiting. My recommendation is find another cabinet for your dream kitchen and it will be a nightmare.

    • This has nothing to do with the cabinets. You hired a derelict to install them judging by every point in your review. Go spend $100,000 on cabinets and your contractor still won’t get them square.

  9. We did a full kitchen remodel about a year ago and chose Waypoint cabinets after visits and quotes from 3 prior dealers, so we really felt like we did our research. We settled on this particular line because it was the best value in our price range, offered a slightly different look than we’d seen with other lines, we liked the local dealer, and they’re made in the USA. I won’t say the process was smooth and easy, but this company stands by their product, and we have several examples.

    1) We chose a new door design that wasn’t set up for production yet so delivery took longer than expected. Waypoint compensated us by upgrading to full plywood boxes.

    2) One of the drawer fronts was damaged in shipping and they sent out a new one immediately, no questions asked.

    3) About a month after installation I noticed a problem with the soft close mechanism on one of the drawers. I emailed our local dealer, he took care of the problem and we had it fixed in a week.

    4) Now, a year later, I had the same problem on the same drawer base (different drawers), and instead of going through the local dealer I went right to Waypoint. I heard back from them immediately, new drawers are on their way, no questions asked.

    After doing a ton of research, it became apparent to us that there is no such thing as a perfect cabinet manufacturer, and there’s no such thing as a problem free kitchen remodel. Our contractor has done hundreds of them, and he had nothing but good things to say about the quality and look of our cabinets. He has even referred some of his customers to our dealer which speaks volumes because he’ll install whatever his customers order but quality cabinets just make the job easier. Bottom line, expect problems with the process, but work with a company who will fix them with a smile. Waypoint has done this for us and we couldn’t be happier with the results. Every day I walk into my kitchen and love it just as much as I did the day it was finished. I experienced none of the problems others have had with stain, paint, and general finish issues, but that may be due to the fact that we researched wood types, finishes, etc. and knew what to expect from our choice. The cabinets are beautiful, we get lots of compliments, and would buy them again in a heartbeat.

  10. Love my Waypoint kitchen. The quality, price, finish options were really what we were looking for. We chose the 420 Cherry Java. We could not find a more beautiful dark Cherry color for our cabinets. Love the soft close drawers & doors as well. Best thing is we could not of asked for better customer service from our local dealer. They explained the quality of a American made product that Waypoint is versus the China cabinets that are assembled. We definitely recommend Waypoint.

  12. To all of you that seems to be disappointed with WayPoint Cabinetry and most of all the Rep ( M—) as some of you stated. I have been a Waypoint dealer now for almost two yrs in the State if Maine. I also rep some of the best Cabinets made. And yes I have had issues not to the extent of some of you out there that have had major ones(and still find it hard to believe) but my most and biggest issue were the slow close drawer system which now has been dissolved and have had no more call backs. I have been in this business since 1984 and have seen many good cabinet manufactures and Reps come and go and others work through their growing pains. And as for the Rep (M—) you will not find a better Rep out there. I have Reps from other cabinet dealers that personally knows her and says nothing but good about her. One has even mentioned that I wish we had her on our team. Let tell you this from my personnel experience what she has done for my company. Just this past year had a home show and for some reason I needed literature to pass on at the show and the day before the show as we were packing the truck noticed that the box of literature never showed up. Now in panic mode, called (m— the bad rep)and explained my situation. (m–) says not to worry I figure something out. What she did for us and let me tell you also that, I’m not a big account of hers just average, she drove hours in a snow storm to make sure that I had what I needed for the home show. That doesn’t sound like the bad Rep you are talking about to me. When I had some issues, not many, she was there when I needed her. She would call me at night, email me with what do need done, just nothing but good service. If other Waypoint dealers read this please back her up. I have tried to count how many Reps I have been with since in business, over 20, and she would be on the top of the list period. I even had a well know cabinet Rep come into my store offered me free kitchen displays if I would remove the Waypoint ones. What does that tell you! I said know. Waypoint is one of my best sellers for the average person. And lets face it, that is where the money is. (M—) your the best.–Gil

  13. We are considering Waypoint 720 with Butterscotch Glaze. But the glaze on the sample is very sloppy, uneven and heavy especially around the outer edge. We like our sales rep and contractor and want to like the cabinets. We are considering the 720 in Silk. I like the door and I like the color and had hoped to like the glaze, but I actually don’t think I would be happy with the glaze on these doors. Very confused and disappointed, but glad we are taking our time. Any advice? I looked at the Diamond blazed cabinets and they are sloppy as well. Maybe glaze is supposed to be sloppy looking? If so, It’s not for me.

  14. We have owned own a cabinet business for several years and I am considering becoming a dealer for Waypoint. Reading over these comments is very frustrating from a dealers perspective.

    I am amazed when I read that Waypoint is a bad product, based on corners being nicked, scratches, cabinet doors not aligned properly, moldings missing. I realize that the average person is not that knowledgeable, but EVERY cabinet will need the door hinges adjusted after install!

    As far as the painted cabinet finishes, you are dealing with a natural wood product. If you want a perfect finish, use stainless steel or plastic cabinets. News flash… wood has natural blemishes and it may show through paint. Homeowners also need to know that all painted finish cabinets will show small cracks in the joints. If not when installed, eventually you will see the cracks. Again, it’s painted WOOD. This is why I have all our clients sign a document stating that they understand there may be slight imperfections in the finish.

    It sounds like most of the negative comments are caused from the installer, not the cabinet quality. “Misaligned door knobs” is usually because the cabinet door hinges need a slight adjustment. Scratches and dings… again usually caused by the installer. That’s why we check our cabinets before the installer takes them to the job site.

    Last, but not least… MANY times another contractor has come along behind us (flooring, painters, granite, etc) and scratched, dented, moved, or ripped off molding from our cabinets. Homeowners have even damaged their cabinets after installation was complete and tried to claim we did it. This is why we require our installers to always take many photos after install. That takes care of almost 100% of the issues with cabinets.

  15. I’ve been in the kitchen and bath industry for over 25-years and a Waypoint Living Spaces Dealer for about a year plus. We’ve offered (do offer) everything from entry level to “anything your heart desires” custom. I’ve had experience with many manufacturers of cabinetry at many price points. With ANY manufacturer of cabinetry, it has to be “SOLD” right. What I mean by that is, represent it for what it is. Don’t over sell it, don’t present it as something it’s not. Make sure the expectations of the homeowner are relative to the product and components they are investing in. That’s true of ANY product.

    Specific to Waypoint. I needed a bring on a manufacturer to achieve a certain price-point, delivering cabinetry which met a certain criteria. Is Waypoint “perfect?” Nope. Can a certain look be achieved, of a certain quality level, or a reasonable price with Waypoint? Certainly. You can spend the same amount or More … and get Less. While Waypoint, like ANY manufacturer have their own nuances, be it construction or offering, but … from what I know is available … I do believe that Waypoint delivers a decent product relative to the price they charge.

    Again the key (for the Seller), don’t over sell it. To the Buyer, ask questions. If it sounds too good to be true, it just might be.

  16. They are okay but I would not purchase them again. Purchased cabinets in a painted finish and a stained finish. The stained look fine but the painted wood looks “off” and by that I mean they feel like wood foam. It is light and airy and not at all a “heavy or solid” feeling. Also, several of the drawers will not stay attached to the glides and I have had to have them adjusted. I do not buy that adjustments are due to shipping I think the clip mechanism holding the drawer slides are poorly designed.

  18. CJ is ‘spot on’. Customer expectation levels need to be set. That job lies with the retailer. I have sold numerous Waypoint kitchens, and not a single problem! Not one of my customers have called me. The Waypoint line is a Quality line.

    On to their Customer Service: I sell two other lines besides Waypoint. A higher quality and a lesser one. Each of which provide very good to excellent customer service. Waypoint is ‘head over heels’ better that the others. Their technical team is terrific, never having to call me back with an answer to a question or problem I may have been having. Always solving or answering the problem/question the first time.

    So, I’m with CJ, many, many customer issues lie in two places, the Waypoint dealer (Overselling the product), and/or the CONTRACTOR! It’s been my experience, for every excellent contractor, there are five ‘shoemakers’. So, be careful when selecting your contractor, do your homework, ask him the right questions. And remember, this is not Sears delivering a stove or refrigerator, it’s multiple pieces. Very few kitchen projects go without a hitch, many of which can and should be corrected on-site by the contractor. Anyone can feel free to contact me (by email), and I would be happy to assist you as best I can (whether you’re a customer of mine or not) Thank you.

  19. After googling in search of bathroom ideas I found this blog. Going on 3 years ago my husband & I had our kitchen remodeled with Waypoint cabinets. We were happy then & are happy now. No real problems. A door did come dented. Some of the drawers were not aligned. Our carpenter was not part of Waypoint & even recommended another brand even though we chose Waypoint. He explained that dings, dents & drawer alignment were expected from shipping. And anything that was not up to par is always covered by warranty with a reputable company. We reported the dented door to the dealer we purchased the cabinets from & had a new door shipped to our door step in about a week. The dealer didn’t even want our old door back. They just took our word for it. Our carpenter aligned the drawer & still to this day the kitchen works & looks like new. Now we are going to remodel our master bathroom & will be using WayPoint as well.

  20. Too early to rate overall or about the customer service, but our painted glazed cabinets are being installed this week and out of the first few that have been installed, we have found 4 drawers with defects (paint peeled, scratches, nicks) and and tow cabinets with paint “seams” down the middle. Not impressed so far Waypoint. We have an American Woodmark (parent of Waypoint) vanity that is stained. Had one door where the grain was not acceptable and Home Depot had it replaced promptly. Now with these, though annoyed by the quality control, I’m hoping for a smooth and prompt replacement of which looks like will be a lot of cabinets. Stressful :(

    • Adam,

      I purchased my waypoint cabinets almost a year ago and I love them. My designer set my expectations on what I would be getting. price was also a factor in making my decision/ because I could not afford custom. if you look at other cabinets the finishes are fairly the same but more money.

      Whenever I have get together’s my friends and family always ask me about my kitchen.

  24. I have been selling Waypoint since they started. I have found the customer service is the best in the industry. Every issue was handled promptly and without hassle. I wanted to post this because of a few negative posts. I want to assure people that this is a wonderful product. Sometimes it is the dealer or the installer with the problems. I have had all types of painted finishes from them and have not seen the issues one customer had. Speaking with company higher ups they will not leave a single customer unhappy with the product and will bend over backwards to get them satisfied.

  25. Im surprised with some of these reviews. I purchased a WayPoint kitchen a little over a year ago & i am still 110% satisfied. Before hearing of WayPoint I was shopping Omega Dynasty & Masterpiece. Both of those lines are semi custom & similar priced. They also both have many bells & whistles available. The price of those were high but seemed worth the value. Then one of the dealers I was working with mentioned WayPoint & told me that they are also semi custom and can accomodate my needs. My wife & I got a price on the 720F door style in maple cream glaze. WayPoint was 30% less than the competitors brands. WayPoint offered all the same bells & whistles as well. We have double roll out trays with soft close & double level cutlery trays, ect. The options are available. Also as someone mentioned here, the doors on the cabinets were all not exactly even. But as my carpenter explained it’s completely normal and usually happens during shipping. He explained that any good carpenter takes the doors off the cabinets when installing & puts the doors back on when the job is finished. We did have one door with a rough factory finish. We called our dealer & another door was sent out to us Fed Ex in about a week. Now over a year later, I am very happy with my cabinets & would recommend them to everyone.

  26. I purchased Waypoint Cabinetry from a dealer in Rhode Island. The cabinetry I purchased is a painted finish. I was very disappointed with the quality of the finish.The edges were very dry, and the finish was bubbling. The manufacturer sent their local representative to view the product. She (M***) was not very knowledgeable, and could not offer a solution. It turns out she(M***)is married to the dealer that I purchased the product through. Seems fishy to me. In all, we had a re-finisher come to our home and refinish many of the defective items. We are out of pocket $1200.00 for the re-finish. I do not recommend Waypoint, nor do I recommend the factory representative!

    • Louis B.
      I would love for you to come forward on this. Anyone that’s ever dealt with (M***). No matter what line she has represented. She has always stood behind the product and taken care of any issues. I have been selling cabinets over 10 plus years and she is one of the best representatives out there. She always picks up the phone if she not with a customer, or always calls you right back. She is VERY knowledgeable about the product (Waypoint) she sells. Waypoint’s customer service is by far one of the best I deal with. The product is a middle of the road product and is about 20% less then these other mid level brands. To me personal they have one of the better finishes out there. I would really like to know who refinished your kitchen so I can contact them. Any representative cannot go out to a job without someone from a dealer to represent them. Because I know one thing for sure is the representative of waypoint would never let an issue like this pass by without being resolved. The dealer you are talking is “I” We have sold plenty of white kitchens without any issues. Every line out there has something that could come in damage, or have a slight finish issue. These are always resolved. I would love to hear from you on this and why is the first I’m hearing about this situation? Why haven’t you called us the dealer? Why are you saying the representative has been to the job, when she has not? I really would like for you to call me with your order information so we could help you.

      Thanks, Michael

      • I purchased Waypoint white linen 611 cabinets this summer. I am finding that these cabinets are incredible soft and will dent extremely easily. I am so paranoid about these cabinets that I have completely taken over all the kitchen duties because I don’t trust my husband and son to be as careful with these cabinets as you need to be. The white cabinets are very pretty, but, in my opinion, are so delicate that they are better suited to look at, rather than actually use.

  27. I have been a Waypoint dealer for a year now and have had excellent experience. My sales rep is a dream and her production team is super responsive on phone or email. I had a blemish on the finish of a piece of white trim and the company immediately ordered a replacement, without a photo or a return or a question. I am impressed with their service ethic.

    The shipping and delivery is fantastic. Each cabinet is individually boxed and the carrier stacks them inside the home on a Waypoint supplied tarp. White glove. Cabinets are shipped 28 days after I place an order on their user friendly Java app.

    The cabinet quality is mid-grade, as mentioned above. That is more a reflection of the finishes offered and options available. The construction of the case is somewhat modular and the drawer guides just snap into place. The pricing reflects this and I find them to be 20% lower than a lot of comparable lines.

    If Joe has damaged cabinets, he should take some pictures and email the company. From what I have seen they will take care of it. If the cabinets were damaged after deliver, or the installer is over their head, then the problem may not be with Waypoint. Joe refers to the ‘price he paid’ as justification for his expectations, but really he should know what he way buying. From my experience, Waypoint does deliver a good product at a very fair price, but your mileage may vary.

  28. I agree with CJ and I feel that Joe may not be placing the blame for his issues in the right place. If Joe is seeing so many problems in his own installation that he did not see in the showroom it clearly points to the installation contractor. Cabinet manufacturers do not produce product any differently for the showroom than they do the homeowner. As far as pricing goes, I find that Waypoint is the best value out there when you consider the consistent quality, attention to detail, reliable lead times and ease of ordering. Joe also needs to understand that Waypoint has little influence on what their dealers charge for the product and how the present it to the customer.

    My first question of the sales rep from Waypoint when offered the line was, “tell me about the customer service and problem resolution”. My sales rep praised her “team” for their professionalism. I did not understand why there was such and emphasis on “team” until I had the opportunity to deal with them. It does not matter when I call or who I speak to I get an entusiastic response from knowledgable professionals that truly care that my customer is a happy customer.

    In response to Roberts comments, I am unclear if he is a dealer or homeowner. I can say without hesitation that my sales rep is an extremely knowlegeable professional that is a credit to Waypoint Living Spaces. I find the line broad in its offerings and a pleasure to sell. Thank you Waypoint!!

  29. Just got the cabinets…looked at all of them and there’s an issue with each. Very poor craftsmanship and bad finishing, as well as chips and scratches. If I wanted cheap cabinets I would have ordered them from China, they probably would have been nicer and cheaper! Does anyone have higher management contact information? I’m fighting now to get everything replaced or be compensated for the damage and the customer service is very bad, I’m just going in circles. So frustrated!

    • I wish I read your review prior to buying waypoint. You are 100% correct regarding their poor finish on painted cabinets. 90% had defective finishes’

    • Hello Heather, I am considering ordering WayPoint cabinets from a retailer in Tampa. Did you ever get your issues resolved? What color did you buy? Was yours a painted finish? I think type I am ordering are “620” cabinets. What was the type you ordered? Thanks for any information. Bob

  30. What a disappointment. I learned that Waypoint is merely a spin-off of American Woodmark sold at the big box store. The cabinetry doesn’t offer any options, and is nothing more than a marketing ploy. I wish I knew that before I spent the money to purchase such an inferior product. I have had several issues with the quality of the finish. I live in New England, so the manufacturer sent their local representative out to see the issues. That was a waste of time, as she doesn’t seem to know anything about kitchen cabinetry. I cannot endorse this product!

  31. I have to disagree with the review posted on Waypoint cabinets. I purchased them a few months back and my family has been extremely happy with the quality and the price was a great value. We compared them to other like brands and it wasn’t close based on those 2 factors. I would buy them again and have referred a few friends to the company we bought them from telling them to buy Waypoint!

  32. Thanks for posting and saving others a headache. I now make it a practice to check reviews before going to deep into a product and wasting time. It’s too bad manufacturers don’t take these reviews seriously. THANKS

  33. I am surprised to see such high ratings for Waypoint cabinets. My wife and I are going through a living nightmare remodeling our kitchen. It seems like at least half the cabinets have something wrong about them (shoddy staining, drawers that are not aligned properly, cracks, varying appearance, etc). Every day we look at the cabinets, we see something new as they are being installed. We are constantly calling the store that we bought them through to have someone come out and look at the latest thing we discovered. They are priced too high to have this many issues.

    • I wanted to respond to Joe. I recdently had a Waypoint Kitchen installed. There were a few issues (that should be expected on a remodel project). My dealer and Waypoint took care of each of the items in a timely and professional manner with no hesitation or questions. I was told their motto was “if I wasnt happy, then they werent happy” The Waypoint warranty and customer service team is top notch and second to none. I couldnt imagine a better experience. I simply love my kitchen. There is just no way that I could have found a better value for such an AWESOME product. Thanks Waypoint and Statewide Cabinets for making my kitchen the highlight of my home.

      • I disagree 100%…maybe your cabinets turned out great, but I’m going through a nightmare with my kitchen. The craftsmanship is very poor and I have been going in circles with them telling them I need replacements and I’m not putting what I have currently in my kitchen. I am unable to be transferred to a higher-up in the company to get my issue resolved. Very angry for the amount of money that I paid to receive poorly finished cabinets with scratches and chips on the corners.

      • Glad to hear your success. I was told by my WayPoint local management you need to design your kitchen around your appliances. Maybe my Waypoint designer should have known…. pick your appliances then see if the cabinets fit.

        I have base cabinets cracked, door pulls misaligned, missing corner molding, I could go on.

    • I have been a kitchen dealer for over 20yrs and have been selling Waypoint since they launched the line. It sounds to me that the dealer Over Sold the product to you. There isn’t a major manufacture on the market today that I’m not intimately familiar with. Waypoint is a middle of the road line, and it sounds like the dealer should have sold you a better grade of cabinetry. Of course with wood you will have small knots, mineral streaks, varying appearance etc. the level of this depends on the grade of cabinetry. This all depends on the finish you picked and the wood species you picked. I can tell you that the “drawers that are not aligned properly” is completely standard industry wide. There is not a single manufacturer anywhere.. stock, semi-custom, or custom that pre-align doors and drawers, and even if they did, which they don’t, just shipping the cabinets will throw off that alignment. With any cabinet line, in their specs they ALWAYS have a disclaimer that some door and drawer adjustment will need to be done jobsite. Your contractor should know this, and should have explained that to you, it’s a no-brainer.. Frankly if he didn’t, he’s doesn’t know what he’s doing. If you bought them somewhere where he didn’t send you, I would suspect that he has been bad mouthing them because he lost out on his piece of the cabinet sale. Bottom line is, your expectations are not in line with what you actually purchased.
