Founded in Ohio in the ‘80s, Mill’s Pride based its strategy on its belief that budget-minded homeowners would flock to high-quality, ready-to-assemble kitchen cabinets. The strategy paid off - Mill’s Pride, now part of international giant Masco (which also includes such brands as Delta Faucet, KraftMaid Cabinetry, and Milgard Windows) is a market leader in the North American ready-to-assemble market and is the top kitchen cabinet brand sold at Home Depot, with whom the company has a close relationship. It continues to make cabinets in Ohio.
Key to its success has been Mill’s Pride’s emphasis on good value. While the company makes liberal use of relatively low-end materials, such as fiberboard and particle board, and uses a lot of veneer, melamine, vinyl and thermafoil over such engineered wood products in lieu of solid wood, it offers a range of attractive styles and decorative options. Perhaps more importantly, its limited lifetime warranty (for as long as the purchaser owns the home) is comparable to that offered by much pricier vendors. Also, Mill’s Pride cabinets stand up to rigorous testing and are certified by the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association.
Particularly if your plans call for the sleek “frameless” look, in which the doors and drawer fronts cover the entire front of the cabinet, you might want to take a look at Mill’s Pride - even if you have no intention of assembling the cabinets yourself. Talk with your kitchen contractor - it may well be that you’ll save considerably on labor as well as materials with these cabinets, thereby freeing up funds for other parts of your project.
