Sauder HomePlus Basic Storage Cabinet – No mis-alignment for the doors!

Fairly solid piece of furniture for the price. I believe folks on here reporting issues with door alignment simply have no idea how to properly assemble this item considering that the hinges are highly adjustable and everything fit together nearly perfectly (the hardest part was getting the hinges screwed into the side walls). If you go slow, take your time during building, and check that everything is aligning correctly, you should have yourself a decent cabinet in under 4 hours thanks to the clear and detailed instructions (fyi, it’s a fairly heavy piece at 100lb, so you may need assistance building and positioning it). My only complaint is that the box showed up in a bit of a rough condition from ups shipping, and some of the wood panels are slightly damaged so i’ll need to use a furniture marker to cover up the rough spots.

We have absolutely no storage in our bathroom and this cabinet is perfect. Doesn’t take up too much room, but it holds a lot of stuff. Simple instructions and easy to assemble. It is probably a good idea to put one of the adjustable shelves in place while attaching the bottom shelf, this will ensure that everything lines up. After i put everything together, something was off and my adjustable shelves would not fit. I ended up taking the bottom shelf off and readjusting. Of course the doors did not line up correctly, but every screw on the hinge has a purpose, you just have to play around with them. I actually enjoy putting things together, so a little challenge is ok. Overall, it is well made and quite sturdy.

Like so many things in the amazon reviews. Like so many things in the amazon reviews, disregard the nay-sayers. This is not like your custom-made cabinets, this is inexpensive and gets the job done. It looks nice, puts together suprisingly easy, and holds all my tube-radio equipment. Here are the specifications for the Sauder HomePlus Basic Storage Cabinet:

No mis-alignment for the doors. The biggest thing i worried about after reading the reviews was that people said the doors won’t align properly. I just assembled mine, the doors look perfectly aligned without any adjustments. There’s a small gap between when the doors are closed though, so you can see the shelves. It’s a bit odd but i’m not super bothered. I attached pictures of finished cabinet, hope it’s helpful. Overall it’s well worth the price.

So close to great but falls slightly short -. I have put together my fair share of bookcases and cabinets. For the most part you get what you pay for. I needed 2 cabinets for pantry type use in my dining room. In the photos these matched the style and colors already in use. The price was comparatively reasonable. You cant expect hardwood hand crafted pre assembled products at this price point but there is an expectation of quality. I was skeptical so i order 1 to do a trial run. Package came from a 3rd party supplier quickly. It was big and heavy but i managed.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • No mis-alignment for the doors!
  • Couldn’t be happier!
  • Very nice piece of furniture.with excellent instructions.

We got three of these cabinets to put in our dining room. We work from home and need loads of storage for our products, and wanted something that looked elegant but could also be installed with baby locks so our toddlers couldn’t get in them. These are so perfect for what we needed.Installation was not too difficult either, and we really loved the fact that the parts were separated in compartments and labeled. Made it very easy to find what we needed. The boxes were very heavy, i felt bad for our ups driver, but they are very sturdy shelves and are perfect for what we wanted.

Great for a stand alone pantry. Took about an hour to put together – need a hammer and a screwdriver. Did come with a damaged shelf, but fortunately where it is located it is unnoticeable. Doors are not soft close, but i knew that going in :). Also – the doors don’t line up just right. All that being said, it was worth the price.

It is a solid piece and well put together. The instructions are easy to follow and they way the parts are laid out really does make it fool proof. I think it says to put together with two people. But i had this together in about 70 minutes by myself and i would not call myself a flat pack expert, i have done a few in my time. I have posted pictures of the way i laid the parts out before i started. And also the finished item with my stuff in it. It hold a lot and i got some cabinet storage that fit perfectly in this cabinet. I also put the hinges on the cabinet first then put the doors on.

Great great great company nice looking product. . This thing had to have yellow caution stickers on the packaging from ups. It’s a good sturdy so far unit. I put it together on my own but if you have help i would suggest using it. For those who said that the door handles do not line up. I found i got them to when i turned one of them upside down and re screwed it in. They are even now, so make sure when you’re putting it together you have them facing the same direction. The box was tightly packed together.

We purchased this cabinet via amazon after searching the internet. The cabinet arrived earlier than promised, so we were happy about that. My adult daughter helped me put the cabinet together, and overall, it went ok. There were a few minor problems during assembly. The first is when we put the rear ‘feet’ together with the bracing. You have to tap a holder into one of the holes, and then you hand screw in the leveler. When tapping in the holder, part of the plastic foot broke off. It is in the back, and it didn’t effect the cabinet, so i didn’t worry about it. The second minor issue was discovered when we flipped the cabinet over to nail on the back cardboard.

Love the size and they have worked well for us. We now own 2 of these cabinets. Love the size and they have worked well for us. The doors are the trickiest part to put together, but with a little adjusting of the screws as suggested in the instructions they fit great.

Love this cabinet, got to use as a pantry and it works perfect. I actually lit together all by myself, and used the recommendation of other reviewers to put the door hinges on the cabinet first. A little dificult getting the doors on, but overall went well.Loved that all the pre cut and drilled holes were matched up perfectly. Also love that it was a product made in the usa. Detailed instructions with pictures were very easy to follow. Definitely recommend this cabinet.

Theres a big gap between the doors. I don’t know if i installed it wrong or something. Some parts came chipped, but it’s in the inside and not noticeable. Took some time to put it together. I didn’t like the part when installing the feet, you need a long neck screw driver, long enough so you can reach to the end of the hole which is about 3 inches to screw it in, therefore you can’t use any screw drivers that has an obstructions like a socket or interchangeable head screw driver because it can’t fit in the hole. I bought this to use at a pantry for my kitchen and it’s been working great. It’s very heavy even though it’s not real wood. The color is just like the image on the computer and it matches my kitchen cabinets perfectly.

This is a high-quality piece of furniture and it is well packaged for shipping. I was nervous at the state it showed up in until i realized it was theadditional packaging around the box there to protect it during shipment that was damaged. I fall short of a five-star review because it was difficult to assemble. Not by the instruction but by how the pieces fit together. You need a lot of patience to get the doors to properly fit and don’t even get me started on the effort it takes to get the handles on without being loose. Once it is put together it is a great piece. Very aesthetically pleasing.

Bought this for my sister’s salon and she loves it. She’s able to hold all of her beauty products in this cabinet and then some.

Like a few others have said. Like a few others have said, we couldn’t get the doors to quite line up right. It drives my husband crazy that it’s not perfectly lined up, but it doesn’t bother me as much as him. I think part of the reason it doesn’t line up is because he had some trouble attached the top piece to the side pieces–one of the pieces just didn’t fit right. Otherwise i love the storage space it provides, but i do wish it was a little sturdier. All in all, i think it’s a fair product for the price and the size is right.

This cabinet is spacious and fairly nice looking. It was a bit of a challenge to fill ours up, and the room looks so much nicer now. Both doors open smoothly and line up fairly well. Like all composite wood furniture, this cabinet isn’t built to last the ages, but it is pretty sturdy. Ours did arrive with a cracked trim piece, but it’s still very functional and doesn’t look that bad.
