Important Notice

Please take note of the 03-07-2022 notice. Some of the more affordable cabinet brands at levels 1 and 2 are currently experiencing out of stock issues and extended delays. It's always a good idea to check with dealers for estimated timelines. On the other hand, higher-end semi-custom brands at levels 3 and 4 now require approximately 8 to 14 weeks for delivery, if not longer. And if you're considering luxurious custom brands at levels 5 or 6, expect a waiting time of 18 to 24 weeks, or even more.

A Word of Warning

If you find yourself comparing prices across different cabinet lines, we strongly urge you to read this first. Price comparison may seem like a good idea, but it often leads to disappointment and dissatisfaction with your final choice. Let us guide you through the process to ensure you make the right decision for your needs and budget.

How the Ratings Work

Our kitchen cabinet ratings are based on the assumption that each line is upgraded to the top level of construction available, typically featuring all-plywood construction. Please note that a grade of A for construction quality may not be consistent across different price levels. Higher-priced cabinets tend to offer superior finishes and construction options.

Keep in mind that frameless European style cabinets, while sleek and easily accessible, are generally less durable compared to the best-made framed cabinetry. Therefore, the highest grade for quality in any frameless European style cabinet line is a B.

The value grade we assign to each cabinet line is not a reflection of its quality, but rather an assessment of how good of an investment it is considering its cost. It's important to note that some of the most expensive and well-made cabinet lines may receive lower marks in terms of value, simply because there are competitors offering similar quality at slightly lower prices. If budget is not a concern for you, then feel free to disregard the value rating for those cabinets falling within the 6-price point.
