KCMA 101: Resources


As the leading trade association for kitchen and bath cabinet manufacturers and suppliers to the cabinet industry, the Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturers Association is your go-to-resource for specifying quality cabinets. In fact, This Old House recommends only purchasing cabinets that have the KCMA Seal.

KCMA administers two different certification programs: The KCMA A161.1 Quality Certification Program and the Environmental Stewardship Certification Program.

The KCMA A161.1 Quality Certification Program ensure that cabinets are built to last, durable and quality built. By administering over a dozen tests including door tests, drawer tests, structural tests and finish tests, this certification guarantees you can feel good about a cabinet displaying this seal.

The Responsible, Sustainable Environmental Stewardship Program reviews cabinet manufacturing companies across a variety of categories including air quality & pollution prevention, resource sustainability, waste minimization, environmental stewardship and community relations to ensure that the company is following best practices to have a positive impact on the environment. When this seal is on a cabinet, you know this company does their part for the environment.

Our manufacturer look-up tool can help you find a KCMA Certified cabinet manufacturer by certification, location, style, distributor, cabinet type, materials or brand.
