Material Matters: A Closer Look at the Building Blocks of FORM Kitchens

The kitchens are made from earth-friendly kitchen cabinet materials like other European kitchen brands. FORM Kitchens from Nobilia use high-grade particle boards for their bespoke kitchen. American kitchen cabinet brands adopt a different approach to kitchen manufacturing. They often use Plywood materials for custom kitchens instead of high-quality particle boards. Furniture board often faces skepticism in the US. Yet, it is crucial that you understand the differences between the materials. Discover which one suits your needs best in our post: Plywood vs. Particle Board Cabinets.

Mixed reviews about Professional Designers & Design Phase

"Lindsay Herlinger: Our designer was wonderful to work with, she listened to what I wanted and took my sketch I had drawn and turned it into a fabulous design." "Thi Le: Form’s kitchen designer was great to work with and their renderings are fantastic." " cortensteeIny: We've never heard from her since. (She seemed lovely and professional in the online meeting.) I messaged her a couple of times and her replies were beyond perfunctory. She's never checked in with me to say she's busy. We've never received an update. We don't chase people or make demands. We like to let people show who they are.

Manufacturing phase

Lead times are sometimes longer than communicated.

" Iherl: The timeline they provided us was not realistic at all. We were lead to believe it would be roughly 3-4 months and we're at 12 months from our initial consult and we still have no eta on all of our kitchen cabinets, perhaps April which would put us at 14 months." "Tamsin Regan: We locked in our order from Form in December, and are still waiting for the factory to confirm our order now nearly 2 months later. We are cautiously optimistic that the order will be confirmed soon - but the delays seem immense currently with Form."

Installation process

Pre-assembled cabinets make installation easy yet you will need a Contractor with Experience in German cabinetry

" Samantha Banowetz: I don't have a local GC, ours really struggled and I was constantly checking and on top of them to make sure everything was installed correctly."

Excellent Customer Service

Customer Service overall good | Responsive & Fair-minded

" Iherl: With that said Form Kitchens went above and beyond to make sure we were happy customers at the end of the day. They refunded our project 100% (who does that!) & continued to answer our calls and emails afterwards, and were friendly in doing so."

​Competitive Prices

Cabinetry Costs Only | Appliances not included, yet support choosing the right models.

" Samantha Banowetz: The appliances themselves aren't included in the price, but FORM can/will make suggestions if you need help picking appliances."

Guarantee Delivery

Long Lead Times | Punch List & Replacement Orders | Poor communication on Timeline

" Lindsay Herlinger: We ended up received a full refund for the kitchen cabinets and almost a full refund for the living room, which softened the experience. Honestly, I would have rather paid full price somewhere else and have received my cabinets in a more timely manner and not had all of these headaches."

Product Quality

Only one showroom in San Francisco | Quality cannot be inspected as easily unlike other products on the market.

" Seung Chan Lim: That's the two I'm going back-and-forth on. Just nervous going with the FORM since I've seen Snaidero first-hand and can see that it is high quality. For FORM, I cannot."

The quality conviences.

" Thi Le: The drawers are all soft close and I love it."
