Which of these materials will you use for your kitchen cabinets?
In most department stores finding cabinets made from particle board is common, cheaper than MDF yet with less durability. Particle board is made with recycled products formed together through pressing and finished with a wood veneer. This type of material is ideal for furniture cabinets, where you store dry goods or other kinds of stuff since this kind of cabinet is sensitive to water and moisture. This might be a less durable material but still ideal for a customer who is good in handling and caring furniture.
Plywood is the most common material used not only in cabinet making but also in construction. This material can easily be found in every hardware, but customers must be meticulous in choosing what kind of plywood to purchase because its durability differs with its thickness. Plywood is composed of layers of wood joined together in an adjacent layer with glue and heat press, right ratios are easily achieved with this cabinet material.
Medium-density Fiberboard is an alternative to plywood with cheaper cost value. It is made with hard and softwood fibers mixed with some resin and wax. MDF has lesser advantages than plywood yet durability is still guaranteed. Customers who are on a tight budget can still achieve a stylish and durable cabinet by using MDF.
