KraftMaid Cabinets...

...cabinetry "made just for you."

As the world's leading manufacturer of built-to-order cabinetry, KraftMaid leads the way in offering an almost endless selection of door styles, finishes, functional storage solutions and decorative enhancements that allow you to customize your home to suit your style – and your lifestyle with cabinetry “made just for you.”

KraftMaid offers cabinetry in six beautiful, natural woods and a variety of laminates.

The following section will show each wood style with a brief description of the characteristics.


Hard maple is a strong, close-grained wood that is predominantly off-white in color, although it also contains light hues of yellow-brown and pink. Hard maple occasionally contains small mineral, light tan or reddish -tinged streaks that will darken with stain. It is usually straight grained, but can be wavy or even curly.


Hickory is a strong, open-grained wood that is known for its flowing grain pattern and dramatic variation in color. It often contains random specks, burls and mineral streaks, and it is not uncommon to see doors or parts of doors that range in color from light to deep brown when finished in light or natural stains. Darker stains will mildly tone these color variations, but these very characteristics make each hickory kitchen unique and the preference of those who love wood.


Red oak has a prominent open grain that ranges in color from white to yellow and reddish-brown. Red oak is sometimes streaked with green, yellow or black mineral deposits and may vary from a closely knit grain to a sweeping arch pattern.


Cherry is an elegant, multi-colored hardwood. In its raw state, it has a pinkish-brown hue with occasional shades of white, green, pink or even gray. Natural or light stains accent these color variations. Small gum pockets, streaks, pin knots and figures are common. Cherry wood will darken or “mellow” with age. This mellowing is a natural occurrence and a benefit of owning solid cherry cabinetry.


Natural birch is a medium-density hardwood with a distinct, moderate grain pattern that ranges from straight to wavy or curly. The predominant sapwood color is white to creamy yellow, while the heartwood varies in color from medium or dark brown to reddish-brown. This range in color makes a distinctive statement in a birch cabinetry selection.


Pine is a close, straight-grained softwood that ranges in color from white to yellow to pink. Pine contains numerous solid knots of varying size that contribute to color changes within pieces of wood. “Factory installed” indentations or distressing provide an Old World look on selected KraftMaid pine door styles.

This next section represents the three different door shapes available in each of the different wood species shown above.

KraftMaid offers over 50 different square door styles ranging from a simple recessed panel or Shaker style door to a detailed mitered raised panel door. All KraftMaid square styles feature square doors on both wall and base cabinets with coordinating drawer fronts.

Square Door

KraftMaid's selection of almost 25 arch style doors is a mix of Roman, cathedral, crown and gentle arch doors in a variety of woods and laminate styles. All KraftMaid arch styles feature arched doors on wall cabinets and coordinating square doors and drawer fronts on base cabinets.

Slab Door

Slab door styles exude a simple elegance and clean lines, and KraftMaid has a wide selection of styles in a variety of wood species and laminates. Slab door styles feature the same clean look on all wall cabinets, base cabinets and drawer fronts.

KraftMaid Cabinetry's standard construction features like ¾” solid wood dovetail drawers with undermount suspension runners and ¾”-thick, fully adjustable, full-depth shelves are considered upgrades by many other manufacturers. Look closely at the details and you'll see why they say "made just for you".

KraftMaid's DuraKraft finish is one of the finest wood finishes available. This multi-step process is used to create each one of KraftMaid's 37 finishes and glazes. We take the extra steps like hand-sanding and hand-rubbing the finish into each door – to bring you a beautiful finish, each and every time.
