Kitchen & Bath Business magazine readers named the top five preferred makers of cabinets, vanities, and hardware, among other remodeling sources. More than 11,000 votes were cast, yielding the "usual suspects," in most cases, but some new names, too, in the fourth annual edition of the program. 

MasterBrand Cabinets made the top-five for kitchen cabinetry, along with competitors Wellborn Cabinets, Cabico Custom Cabinetry, Masco's Kraftmaid, and Merillat (another Masco brand), plus Germany's Poggenpohl. Criteria is craftsmanship, door styles and finishes, ability to customize and modify, and construction quality.

Hardware Resources, which despite its name also sells wood bathroom cabinetry, was cited among the top five in three categories: Bath Cabinets/Vanities, Hardware, Decorative and Hardware, Functional. Cabico, Fairmont, Kraftmaid, Ronbow, and Kohler - a growing presence n bath cabinetry - were also in the top five vanities list.

Kitchen Accessories,- a category for drawer organization and cabinetry add-ons, included Blum, Hafele, Rev-A-Shelf and Richelieu in the top four. For Decorative Hardware the top five are Amerock, Atlas Homewares, Richelieu, and Top Knobs, along with Hardware Resources. For functional hardware KBB magazine readers again voted for Blum, Hafele, Rev-A-Shelf, Richelieu, along with Hardware Resources.
