13 High End Kitchen Cabinet Brands To Consider

If you’ve been a follower of mine for a few years, you’ll know that we renovated our current home with HGTV

Our 1860’s historic house had to have a total gut renovation. We wanted to keep the charm of our historic house, but bring it up to this century.

Our kitchen was initially in another room entirely. The past layout would not work with our family. Now that we have an open floor plan with our kitchen, front living room, and dining room, this works perfectly for our family.

Besides changes to a layout, we had tons of design choices to make. While some of the choices were ours to make, others weren’t. 

Our kitchen cabinets were not a decision we got to make. While I love the look of the cabinets, their function is not the best. In all honesty, they aren’t the best quality.

While we have no plans on replacing these cabinets anytime soon, I do have some serious cabinet envy.

If you are looking to replace your cabinets or undergo a renovation, these are the top 13 kitchen cabinet brands that I’d consider for myself.

Considerations Before Picking Out Cabinets

Before we get to the top brands of kitchen cabinets, you’ll need to keep a few considerations in mind.

#1 Budget

First, determine your budget for the kitchen cabinets and stick to it.

Cabinets can vary significantly in price, so it’s essential to find a balance between quality, aesthetics, and cost. Consider whether you need custom cabinets or if stock or semi-custom cabinets will meet your requirements.

This will help you narrow down your options and guide your choices regarding materials, finishes, and additional features.

#2 Materials & Quality

Next, look for cabinets made from durable materials that will withstand daily use.

 Solid wood such as oak, maple, cherry and birch wood are commonly used for cabinet door, frames, and drawer fronts. Plywood, and medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or furniture-grade particleboard with veneer or laminate finish are generally used for the cabinet box. 

Regardless of the material type, they should be resistant to warping, cracking, and moisture damage.

If you’re environmentally conscious, you may want to consider eco-friendly options. Look for cabinets made from sustainable materials and those with certifications such as Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. 

Check the construction quality, such as the thickness of the panels, the strength of the joints, and the quality of the hardware. The construction techniques used in assembling the cabinets significantly impact their quality and durability. 

Look for cabinets that use solid joinery methods such as dovetail, mortise and tenon, or dowel joints for enhanced strength and longevity. Avoid cabinets with stapled or glued joints as they may not hold up well over time.

#3 Style & Design

You’ll need to decide on the style and design of the cabinets that suit your kitchen and personal taste. Consider factors like traditional, modern, transitional, or contemporary styles. Look for design elements that will harmonize with other elements in your kitchen, such as countertops, backsplash, and flooring.

Not only do you need to determine a cabinet door style, but you’ll also need to consider the cabinet finish, color, hardware, and accessories.

Cabinet Finish

Choose a finish and color that harmonizes with your kitchen’s overall design and style. Popular options include stained wood, painted finishes, and laminates.

To help narrow down your finishes, make sure you keep in mind factors like durability, ease of ease of cleaning, and resistance to moisture and stains.

A high-quality cabinet will have a durable and smooth finish that not only enhances aesthetic appeal but also protects the wood from moisture, stains, and scratches.

 Look for finishes that are resistant to chipping, peeling, and discoloration. A multi-step finishing process, such as catalyzed conversion varnish or polyurethane, provides excellent durability and protection.

Selecting Cabinet Hardware

 Pay attention to the hardware and components used in the cabinets. High-quality cabinets often feature sturdy and smooth-operating hinges, drawer slides, pulls, knobs, and handles.

Hardware selection in general can be a personal preference.If choosing the hardware, you’ll want to choose a size that complements the cabinet style, you also need to consider placement of the hardware on the cabinet.

#4 Cabinet Accessories

Think about the functionality and convenience of accessories like soft-close hinges, drawer dividers, and lighting fixtures.

Soft-close hinges and drawer slides are desirable as they provide a quiet and effortless closing action, reducing wear and tear.

Well-constructed cabinets will also have thoughtful interior features that enhance functionality and organization. Adjustable shelves, pull-out trays, dividers, and specialized storage solutions maximize the use of space and make accessing items more convenient.

The more bells and whistles your cabinets have, the higher the cost so you’ll need to keep your budget in mind.

#5 Storage Needs

Don’t forget to assess your storage needs and how you use your kitchen. 

Consider the quantity and sizes of your cookware, dishes, utensils, appliances, and pantry items. This will help you determine the number of cabinets, drawers, and shelves you’ll require, as well as any specialized storage solutions. Features like pull-out shelves, lazy Susans, spice racks, and built-in organizers help to maximize functionality.

Once you assess your storage needs, you’ll want to review your kitchen’s layout and evaluate the available space. 

Take measurements of the walls, ceiling height, and any architectural features or obstructions that may impact the cabinet installation.

 Consider the workflow and ensure that the cabinet placement allows for efficient movement and easy access to essential areas, such as the sink, stove, and refrigerator.

#6 Installation Needs

Determine whether you will install the cabinets yourself or hire professionals. 

Proper installation is crucial for the longevity and functionality of your cabinets. If you’re not experienced, it’s generally recommended to hire a professional.

#7 Warranty

Always make sure to check the warranty offered by the cabinet manufacturer and review their customer service reputation. A reliable warranty and good customer service can provide peace of mind and assistance if any issues arise.
