Popular Features

All plywood construction boxes (APC)

KraftMaid Vantage boxes come standard with APC – All-Plywood Construction. Many manufacturers and big box stores charge fifteen to twenty percent additional for APC. Because this better-built box is standard with KraftMaid Vantage, not only do you get a better overall value, you get more design upgrades at a lower percentage cost based on door styles and finish options selected.

Nearly every cabinet manufacture constructs their cabinet boxes using (MDF) Medium-Density Fiberboard or particle board. With KraftMaid Vantage, your cabinet boxes will be significantly more durable, stronger, sturdier and less likely to receive water damage. They are designed to last a lifetime.

Six-way adjustable Blum hinges

KraftMaid Vantage uses Blum Hardware which is the gold standard and leader in cabinet hardware. KraftMaid’s Whisper Touch™ hinge features an integrated mechanism that closes doors softly and quietly and is adjustable six

ways for perfect alignment.

Blum undermount soft close drawer glides

Vantage’s standard drawer runner suspension system features a smooth, ball bearing operation with a 90 lb. load capacity.

Say goodbye to slamming drawers, sagging drawers and drawers that won’t stay closed.
