In search of the best kitchen cabinets

  • All wood construction. Companies, such as Yorktowne Cabinetry, and Merillat Cabinets offer all wood construction on their premier cabinets. This usually means that cabinet sides are built using plywood and wood veneer, instead of the Medium-density fiberboard that many budget cabinets use. Plywood is more resistant to moisture damage than MDF board and can provide better support for heavy counter tops.

  • Drawer glides. Budget cabinets often use center glides that can't support much weight and may cause problems with frequent use; the best kitchen cabinets use side rails with ball bearings or rollers that allow the drawers to close smoothly and quietly.

  • Drawer construction. The best kitchen cabinets are built like fine furniture. Drawer construction is no exception. Look for the drawers to be built from wood with dovetail joints in the corners for strength; budget drawers are often constructed with MDF board.

The best kitchen cabinets are built to last many years. These are usually a manufacturer's premier line so expect to pay quite a bit more, than for budget friendly selections. In some cases, these may cost twice as much.
