Their products may cost a pretty penny, but many homeowners love the variety of choices available, as well as the high-end look. Here are the facts to help you decide if Crystal Cabinets is the way to go.

Crystal Cabinets are considered to be a very durable cabinetry choice and come with a limited lifetime warranty to prove it. All cabinets installed after November, 1996 that are still at the original installation site are covered—as long as the damage is due to regular wear and tear.
Crystal Cabinets maintain a high-end look as long as they are cleaned regularly and kept away from excessive moisture, temperature and humidity extremes, harsh cleaners, and self-polishing waxes. To clean, simply wipe down cabinets with a damp cloth and a mixture of dishwashing soap and water, and then wipe dry. Always make sure to wipe up spills after they occur.
Crystal's product offerings include three lines of cabinetry. Traditional Crystal is the top of the line, offering a wealth of options in styles, materials and custom construction. The recently introduced Keyline line takes the most popular elements of the Crystal line and adapts them to more budget-priced construction techniques without sacrificing overall quality. Finally, the Quest line offers a sleek, seamless look, with no visible frames. This allows the cabinet doors to present a continuous surface, and is especially well-suited to modern designs.
Crystal Cabinets are sold at several showrooms across the country. If you are interested in finding models near you, you can visit their website and click, “Find a Showroom” at the top of the screen.
In 1947, Minneapolis cabinetmaker Tom Hammer started building custom cabinets for the local building trade in his garage workshop. Two years later, in what would be the first of many expansions, he moved the company to the neighboring town of Crystal, MN and named it after the town.
