What’s the difference between different levels of cabinetry?

Wondering what you get by upgrading to the next level of cabinets? Here is a general comparison of three different Merillat cabinetry lines to provide an idea of the types of feature and quality upgrades available as you move from standard to mid-range to semi and custom cabinetry. While we’re using Merillat lines for the comparison, the examples are a generally indicative of features across the other cabinet lines we stock.
