Like the ubiquitous IKEA kitchen, Kraftmaid is widely accessible and affordable. Their kitchens are sold through megastores like Home Depot and Lowe's, and they come in a wide range of styles, materials, and finishes. They specialize in "built-to-order" sales, where the customer chooses their own doors and finishes from a pre-defined palette.
Cabinets are made in the USA, and they come with a warranty that guarantees they'll be "free of defects in material or workmanship for as long as they are owned by you." Pricing varies depending on the choice of style, wood, and finish.
The company's not nearly as modern as IKEA, but it's not supposed to be. Their target market is the middle-of-the-road consumer who's looking for traditional styles. If your aesthetic is more modern, they do carry basic slab and square cabinets that are clean-lined and come in maple, cherry, oak, birch, hickory, or thermofoil (a laminate applied to MDF).
