Choosing kitchen cabinets

I'm new to this forum. Joined as it's great how much information I've seen. I'm getting estimates from two companies that sell cabinets. One place deals with Kraftmaid, Dynasty (already have them and they ended up being horrible,) and Medillion. I'm going to a 2nd company and they sell Koch, Wolf, and Kabinart. I think Kabinart works w/Sherwin Williams and you can get any color - or at least thats what I was told. Any information or insight from anyone that has bought cabinets is helpful. I already know what color I"m doing - upper cabinets will be sage (shaker style,) and bottom cabinets and island will be black/onyx. Thanks for ANY HELP!!

If you're interested in a DIY cab, I can highly recommend Barker Cabinets. I have to do roof before kitchen, but I purchase a sample cabinets to check out the quality and ease of assembly - I think Barker is absolutely a DIY, reasonable cost option

Thank you - I will look them up. Has anyone one heard of Kabinart cabinets? I'm finding that when you get estimates from different places, they all deal with different companies. Thanks!!

RE: Choosing kitchen cabinets

We bought Bellmont cabinets. They are made locally in the PNW and affordable.

RE: Choosing kitchen cabinets

Are they Omega Dynasty cabinets?

I'm really surprised you had a bad experience with them. I have them and I absolutely love them! They're so sturdy and the finish quality is wonderful! All the hardware is solid and works smoothly. The customer service is outstanding! I highly recommend them...

RE: Choosing kitchen cabinets

The ones I have are 16 years old an thermafoil. They became warped and peeled within 1 year. Unfortunately we didn't know the right questions to ask 16 years ago. Now I'm asking a ton. I'm sure there better cabinets are probably great. Thermafoil cabinets are horrible. Our kitchen isn't that big - 14 x 14 and we paid $13,000 for cabinets that were crappy back then. Are there any sites that rate the actual quality of different cabinet mfgs? I was thinking about going with Kraft Maid - they've been around for so long and I love the color selection.
