Diamond vs. Kraftmaid Cabinets

xeedooFebruary 20, 2009

I am in the process of deciding on cabinets and getting quotes from Lowes/HomeDepot and Local cabinet dealer (Salt Lake City). I am looking at Kraftmaid Ashbury Maple cabinets(Lowes brand) vs. Diamond Selena and prices are very similar. Is there any quality difference between the two manufacturers? Any comments which one to pick since prices are with in few hundred dollars range.

I have Diamond, and the reason we went with them was to get the toe-kick drawers, which were not available with Kraftmaid. When my design was done, I ended up not being able to even get the darn toe-kick drawers because the are only available with certain sized cabinets, which were not in my kitchen. Oh well.

In addition to the cabinet line themselves you should consider the dealer. I have had a mixed experience at HD, but I have had 3 perfect transactions with Lowe's in my area; KM cabinets arrived perfectly. Orders for addtional parts were fast also. You should find that out.

Also, in these times I'd be sure, if ordering through a private dealer, that a credit card payment is acceptable. About a year ago I almost went through buycabinets.com, but for that issue. We all know what has transpired since that time. You never know.

I was wondering if anyone knows if the painted finishes are the same on these two brands. I am looking at the bright whites in these cabinet lines, but want the ones that are less shiny/ more matte finish. Does anyone know offhand? I had planned Kraftmaid because I thought they were cheaper, but now I am learning that the prices are about the same. I guess the paint finish is going to be the decision maker. Thanks.
