Martha Stewart Living debuts new custom kitchen line for Home Depot


Using her own utilitarian kitchen as inspiration, Martha Stewart has released her first special order line of cabinetry, hardware and counter tops.

Martha2 Sold exclusively at the Home Depot, the cabinetry features clean lines and comes in 11 door styles and a variety of wood finishes. It also offers thoughtful accessories that show Stewart is in charge: cookbook pop downs, roll out shelves and pegged dish organizers.

Hardware comes in 32 styles -- 18 of which are available in stores -- with finishes in Bedford Nickel, Polished Nickel, Bedford Brass, Bedford Satin Brass, Soft Iron and Bronze with Copper highlights.

Corian counter tops starting as low as $53 a square foot come in eight colors and are designed to complement the cabinets.

Because every kitchen is different, prices will vary. But the hope is that consumers will be able to create a custom kitchen at an affordable price. To get an idea, cabinets for a hypothetical 10-by-10-foot kitchen would range from $1,919 at the low end for Wainscott Oak to $3,679 for the higher end Skylands Cherry.

I love the look of these cabinets, but I wonder how they compare in quality and price to, say, Ikea cabinets? It would be exciting to have a stylish competitor for the Ikea kitchen makeovers, but no one seems to know how the MS cabinets will hold up.

I'll let you know...we purchased a MS Kitchen yesterday. It should arrive in 3-4 weeks. We chose Skyland Cabs in Sharkey grey. I understand the color choices will be expanded - currently there is no off white/creamy color, just white or lt grey if you are looking for a light neutral color.
Tip: Some of the colors are straight from her paint line so you don't need to order the $65/qt "touch up" paint from the kitchen dept. Just walk over to the paint dept. and buy a premixed sample bottle for $3.

i beleve masterbrand cabnets is building these cabnets i work there they should be a well built cabnet we build the best


yes masterbrand owns thomasville

These cabinets are the same as Thomasville. They are just stock cabinets with nice looking doors. The construction is not up to the quality it should be. #1 The backs are just stapled on. They should be in grooves in the sides so they don't pull off. And have solid wood across the back to screw through. Remember you attach cabinets to the wall through the back. #2 The frames are just screwed together. They should be Moirtise and tennon joints. But their way is cheap and easy instead of quality. #3 Tops and bottoms are just stuck in slots in the sides. They should be dovetailed into the sides so they hold the cabinet together. The only thing special about these is the Martha Stewart name stuck on the box. And we all know she is paid well for that. She does design and color well. But I think she needs to learn about wood construction as well as looks if she is to back cabinetry.
