Some high-quality kitchen cabinets include those from brands such as Kraftmaid Cabinets, Thomasville, Marsh Furniture and Mid Continent Cabinetry. The National Kitchen and Bath Association recommends cabinetry that uses dovetail construction on all four corners, drawers constructed with all-wood sides and a bottom panel secured by four-sided grooves to hold it in place.
Kraftmaid offers a wide variety of cabinet types and door styles, with many customizable options. The company is renowned for its superior product line and one of the best warranty protection programs in the business; it's good for as long as a homeowner owns the cabinets.
Thomasville, a subsidiary of Masterbrand, offers a large selection of finishes and styles. Every offering in the company's product line is high quality, durable and well-built. Thomasville is a little more pricey than most cabinet-makers, but satisfied customers argue the quality is worth it. Thomasville cabinets are available only at Home Depot.
Marsh Furniture has been crafting top-quality cabinets for more than a century and is known for producing excellent products at competitive prices. While its custom options aren't as extensive as competing companies, styling and finish choices are just as plentiful. Cabinets are certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association and protected with a five-year limited warranty.
Mid Continent Cabinetry is a smaller company with a limited marketing budget, so it is not as well-known as its competitors. The company's selection is just as wide-ranging, however, and more affordable than most. Mid Continent cabinetry is top of the line in terms of quality manufacturing, high-end materials and a cutting-edge finishing process.
