OUR TOP 9 CHARACTERISTICS OF HIGH-QUALITY KITCHEN CABINETS
Much more goes into making high-quality kitchen cabinets than you might think, but you definitely know the attributes of low quality cabinetry. Low quality kitchen cabinets begin to droop or sag over time, the drawers and doors become crooked leading to misshapen boxes, loose hinges, and deterioration. Many low-quality kitchen cabinets show signs of wear and tear with scratched and dented cabinet doors and drawer faces. High-quality kitchen cabinets, on the other hand, are aesthetically stunning and effortlessly functional. They make your life better and they make the entire kitchen look better! Cabinet drawers glide smoothly, beautifully designed cabinet doors show no signs of wear, and the entire cabinet range is safe and durable. If you're looking for kitchen cabinets, make sure they have these 9 characteristics of high-quality kitchen cabinets.
01. HIGHEST QUALITY BUILD ACCORDING TO YOUR BUDGET
Although particle board is a less expensive alternative, plywood construction is the best option to have high-quality cabinets. Particle board is susceptible to moisture damage, crushing or breaking, and blow-outs that are difficult to repair. Other types of materials, such as a stained wood veneer interior, are also more susceptible to moisture in comparison to plywood. Ply wood has a much higher tolerance for moisture and will bear the weight of heavy countertops, appliances, and dish-ware over long periods of time. But whatever materials your budget allows, the most important thing is the end result. We always strive to have our cabinets designed according to your budget with the highest quality possible. We provide options for quality materials such as wood or engineered products that will fit your budget
02. FULL-HEIGHT BACK PANELS
Our full-height back panels ensure that the cabinet box square can be fully attached to the wall behind it. This provides extra security and accurate placement for your kitchen cabinets, preventing them from falling, and keeping them exactly in line with one another.
03. SOFT-CLOSE HINGES
Soft-close hinges are one of the most important aspects of your kitchen cabinets. Without good hinges, your kitchen cabinets may be loose, stiff, or even cause the doors of your kitchen cabinets to be uneven. In worst case scenarios, your doors won't be able to open at all without properly functioning hinges! Soft-close hinges with six-way adjustability not only function well over time, but also stand up to constant use.
04. SOFT-CLOSE DRAWER GLIDES
Weak drawer glides can lead to sagging cabinet drawers, loose drawers, or drawers that are stuck! If you want to avoid these situations, choose cabinet drawers with undermount soft close drawer glides. High-quality drawer glides will support smooth, quiet kitchen drawer movement even through constant, hard use. Especially if your drawers carry heavy weight, you want to invest in drawer glides to support your drawer box and your cabinets overall.
05. SOLID WOOD DOVETAIL DRAWER BOXES WITH PREMIUM UNDERMOUNT SOFT-CLOSE GUIDES
Each drawer box is an important part of your kitchen cabinetry, and the sturdiest drawer boxes are made using hardwood dovetail joints and heavy plywood bottoms. Especially when compared to stapled particleboard drawer boxes, hardwood dovetail drawer boxes stand the test of time as extremely durable and safe cabinet drawers.
06. FULLY ASSEMBLED IN OUR SHOP
Factory construction methods vary greatly from at-home or DIY construction methods, which makes fully assembled cabinets the clear choice when compared to ready to assemble (RTA) cabinets. Cabinet manufacturers have the capability to bind cabinet pieces together on a microscopic level with wood-to-wood construction methods! The safest, most reliably put together cabinets are ones that are fully assembled in the factory.
Materials and construction methods of kitchen cabinets can vary greatly, so one of the homeowners greatest assets is the ability to customize their cabinets. A fully customized cabinet can be tailored perfectly to your unique needs and space (which is just one more reason to avoid RTA cabinets). From cabinet size to shelf or cabinet lining, your kitchen cabinets should be fully yours.
Warranty and industry certification tells you just how far cabinet manufacturers are willing to go to stand behind their product. If your kitchen cabinets come with a warranty, odds are that they'll last the wear of time.

Supporting local is always the best choice, especially when customizing your home. No one knows the place you live like local builders there, so we recommend hiring local cabinet makers who know the trends and needs of your area to craft your custom kitchen cabinets.
