Thanks for all the responses. Plenty to look over now. It's funny how people either love or hate the soft close doors. I'm past the baby stage (where they are recommended), but I have 3 small girls that I don't want to have to go behind to re shut their doors, so I'm still not sure. I'm still wondering about the ceramic controls, haven't seen them in person to see the improvement.
