UltraCraft vs. Crystal Cabinets?

Posted by 3SFBoys (My Page) on

we are getting ready to do a full kitchen remodel in our 1924 Edwardian in San Francisco. I am comparing cabinets from both UltraCraft and Crystal cabinets. Both are semi-custom, all wood construction with soft close doors.

Does anyone have insight on which line of cabinets would be better? The price is similar. Any advice (for or against either brand) would be greatly appreciated!

RE: UltraCraft vs. Crystal Cabinets?

I've actually seen both in good size displays. Ultracraft gives you the advantage of extra space via frameless cabinets. Maybe Crystal offers a european frameless too though which you are considering.

Having said that, I'm into cabinet finish and how it's done. If you are installing painted cabinets, I'd say Crystal over Ultracraft for finish. GL.

RE: UltraCraft vs. Crystal Cabinets?

We are in the midst of our kitchen reno and are using Crystal frameless cabinets (mostly painted and a hutch in cherry). Overall, I am very impressed - the finish is beautiful! There were a few minor imperfections (I am SUPER fussy) and our KD had the Crystal rep come to our house to look. They are sending replacement drawers/doors - no hassle, very good customer service.

We are in Marin, so if you need a reco for a KD/showroom, feel free to message me - happy to provide more details.

Good luck!

RE: UltraCraft vs. Crystal Cabinets?

We have UltraCraft cabinets and have been super happy with them. We have them in a vacation rental home that has had use by probably over a thousand people in the last 2 years. They have held up great so far and look brand new still. I have posted many times about how happy I am with these cabinets.
