Below is our comprehensive list of the top selling cabinet manufacturers in the United States

NOTE: The new 2021 Comprehensive Cabinet Rankings are now available Click Here

Please go to our home page in the tabs above to learn more about our company if you are within our service area.

The top selling cabinet manufacturers in the United States and how they rank for construction quality and for value considering the price point of each cabinet line. Price point is rated from 1 to 6 with 6 being the most expensive cabinetry on the market.

We rate cabinetry assuming each line is upgraded to the top level of construction available. A grade of A for construction quality will not be equal across different price levels, as the more expensive price point cabinets will have far nicer finishes and construction options.

722-Argyle-Ave

The value grade we give is not a rating about the quality of the cabinetry but a rating of how good an investment a cabinet line is considering it’s cost. For example, many of the most expensive well made cabinet lines receive lover marks on value even though as designers we think the cabinetry is the best in it’s class. These lines receive lower grades on value simply because there are competitors offering the same quality at slightly lower prices.

Note: The highest grade for Quality in any frameless European style cabinet line is a B. While frameless cabinetry is easier to access and is sleeker looking, it is also less durable than the best made framed cabinetry.

Remember that choosing the designer, the cabinet dealer, and the installer you are working with is just as important as the cabinet line.

    All the higher priced cabinetry will be made in the US. The best buy in lower priced cabinetry will be for cabinetry owned by US companies and assembled in the US but the doors and cabinet fronts being made in China. Many cabinet companies will be carb compliant across all price ranges. The less expensive 6 Square and Fabuwood lines we carry are both carb compliant. You will need to ask your cabinet rep about the lines you are considering.

    Do you have information about which companies have 1. made in USA cabinets? 2. Which companies are CARB2 compliant/low VOC?
    Thanks!

    Hi Lisa,
    Thanks for the compliment. These are just the top 70 cabinet lines that we are familiar with. There are many good lines and good values not mentioned here, but if you apply the construction standards we discuss in our 2015 blog:
    https://www.mainlinekitchendesign.com/general/2015-popular-kitchen-cabinetry-brand-comparison/
    You can’t go wrong.

    Thank you for this information!! This helps us decide and gives us an idea if we are getting the best for our budget.

    Hi Claire,
    Do you have a question?

  6. Claire Duplain, March 10, 2017 at 6:25 pm:

    Great information. I have a kitchen that is to be approx. 10.4 x 11.5 with an additional area for two pantries: one approx. 36″ w X 24″ d x 93″ and one 24″ w x 24″ d x 93″ h.
