KraftMaid Cabinets vs Wolf Cabinets

I am in the process of selecting cabinets for my new home. For my budget, the lumbar company has 2 brands Wolf Cabinets and Kraft Maid cabinets which are at around same price (1K more on KM because of a sale going on). From what I know, Wolf is a baseline contractor cabinets. Here are my questions:
1. Are Wolf cabinets good?
2. Are KM cabinets good?
3. Is it really worth spending 1K more on KM?

I used KM Cabinets when I made over my kitchen. Did the design and installation myself, bought the cabinets from Lowes.

I did upgrade to plywood and self-closing drawers.

Wife and I are extremely happy seven year later.

I am not familiar with the other brand...

Best of luck!

KM also have different levels of quality. You have to dig in and look at the exact specs of each. KM does have a better quality finish, and if the specs are even, that woukd be enough to sway me to them. The doors are what you see and touch the most, and a better finish is worth it.

Not sure if you read this past post on Wolf quality but the opinions mostly say the quality is not that great.

I have had my oak KM cabinets for 20+ years and actually just completed a redo and kept them and they still look great. Haven't had one problem with drawer glides etc. and do remember they were about $3600 back then. :)

My advise would be to go with KM and get the best level you can stretch to and you will have them for many years.

Thanks for all of your inputs. This atleast justifies the extra $ I might put on KM.
