While the interest in cabinets that meet green standards – with regard to finishes, adhesives and sustainable woods – remains strong, a new trend has emerged that is changing the face of the cabinet industry and the way cabinet manufacturers are approaching the market. Today’s more value-conscious consumer is looking for exceptional quality and extra amenities, all at a competitive price point.
To meet these newest demands, stock and semi-custom cabinet manufacturers are now offering a range of features, such as soft-close for doors, full-extension drawers and creative storage options. To keep pace, many custom manufacturers are entering the semi-custom market with more value-priced lines that are attracting a new crop of customers to their brands.
Manufacturers are also adding a number of painted options and colored finishes to their lines in keeping with the current trends, with door styles leaning toward clean lines and minimal detail.
Kitchen & Bath Design News’ 27th annual “Kitchen Cabinet Style & Design Guide” is designed to provide current and key information to help cabinet specifiers stay in touch with the types of products that are currently on the market. Featuring over 300 companies, this 19-page guide is a year-round reference tool for specifiers.
Information provided in this cabinet directory includes type of cabinets manufactured, target markets, number of dealers and distributors, geographic boundaries of distribution, delivery methods and more.
Since cabinet lines and offerings change frequently, KBDN suggests that product specifiers contact the companies listed directly when additional information is required.
