KraftMaid Cabinets: a U.S. Favorite for Kitchen Remodeling
KraftMaid® Cabinets takes the top spot in a 2011 U.S. Kitchen Cabinet Satisfaction Study conducted by J.D. Power and Associates. The study measured customer satisfaction with kitchen cabinets by measuring 5 factors:
design features, operational performance, ordering and delivery, price, warranty.
How Homeowners are Shopping: 80% of consumers chose their brand of cabinets rather than the contractor, architect or retailer. They were influenced by past experience or displays and cited price, quality and cabinet styling as the most important reasons for choosing a brand.
A shift to stock-sized units in 2011 (28% more) indicates that more people are working with budget restraints. The average purchaser (45%) replaced their cabinets as part of a full kitchen remodel and spend an average of $4500 on cabinets.
