Getting your cabinets done can come with a lot of choices. You have to choose everything from materials, hues, and textures. These choices can be overwhelming for first-timers, especially when interior designers use jargons like ‘MDF‘, ‘plywood‘ and ‘particle board‘.
In order to help you make an informed decision, you need to know what your choices of material are, and also what the pros and cons for each are. Your cabinets, ie., the boxes that form the body of your modular kitchen or wardrobes can be made of plywood, MDF, blockboard or particleboard.
Plywood is made up of thin layers of wood, called ‘plies’, that are glued together for strength. The most commonly available sheet sizes are 8’ x 4’ and 7’ x 3’. It is available in Commercial and Marine grades.
Where to use plywood in home?
Plywood forms the core material for your kitchen cabinets, wardrobe boxes, and other furniture. It is always completely covered with a surface material such as laminate and edge banding so you cannot see it once your boxes are finished.
We recommend that you opt for Marine quality plywood—
