Cabinet brands: 5 criteria to consider when shopping for cabinetry

One way to start narrowing your choices is to decide whether you want ready-to-assemble, pre-assembled or custom kitchen cabinets. IKEA is perhaps the most widely known furniture store for ready-to-assemble furniture products. For high-end cabinets with higher price points, companies such as Thomasville and Merillat build quality, pre-assembled kitchen cabinets, of both stock and custom varieties.

Choosing cabinet brands

At KitchenCabinetsDesign, we consider these essential considerations for making an informed choice about new cabinetry. As you conduct research on cabinet brands, keep this brief check list in mind:

  1. Cost: Know thy budget! How do the cabinet brands you're considering compare to similar products?
  2. Quality: Check Consumer Reports and other reliable product reviews for customer satisfaction.
  3. Materials: Does a particular brand offer the wood, finish and hardware choices you like?
  4. Style: A manufacturer or brand should construct cabinetry in the design theme you're planning.
  5. Environment: If this is important to you, look for the ESP or FSC certifications to determine whether a particular brand uses "green" materials and manufacturing techniques

Once you've determined the top three cabinet brands that also meet your parameters for these five criteria, your final step is to call or visit a retailer and get quotes based on the parameters of your remodeling project.

There are dozens of manufacturers to choose from and cabinet brands to suit every aesthetic--from rustic to modern to traditional. Put the extra effort into your research now, and your investment will pay future dividends, as you enjoy a remodeled kitchen--and its potentially high resale value--for years to come.
