When choosing your cabinets it’s best to take into account what other materials surround the cabinets. If the living room is connected with an open kitchen and there’s lots of wood present then of course an accompanying lumber material would be best suited. If you are already working with a modern point of view then MDF board might be your best choice.
There are two types of cabinet materials that dominate the residential sector, MDF and wood. Steel and aluminum are available, but for the home point of view these two are the most associated. MDF, a composite material made from recycled fibers, is the typical building material used for a vast majority of the cabinets available in local hardware stores and online. MDF has a finish that is smooth, easily painted, comes in an endless amount of shapes and sizes. Cabinets made from this material are also laminated for an ultra smooth finish available in a multitude of colors.
The second most used material is of course wood. Installed and finished correctly wood cabinets are by far considered some of the most beautiful of materials to use for your cabinets. From Oak, Hickory, Cherry, Ash and Pine every type of wood has its own characteristics in patterns and colors available. Wood choices usually weigh significantly less than MDF and can stand the test of time with great care and maintenance towards them. Unlike MDF, wood will expand and contract with changes in temperature and humidity so when making your selections just take this small amount of information into account and ask one of our representatives for help or opinions. All of them are well versed in the pros and cons of each material available.
