Plywood Kitchen Cabinets
Let's talk plywood kitchen cabinets. I was wondering as to what we should focus on while we are out for shopping kitchen cabinets. Should you go for the looks or the price or the durability? I guess you will agree that making a choice among the three is quite impossible because you want cabinets, which are trendy, affordable and long lasting.
Considering all the above facts I think plywood kitchen cabinets would suit your choice. During this venture of buying cabinets you see innumerable catalogues provided by the stores in your local market and on the website. When it comes to deciding on the material of your cabinet it is but natural to get confused.
Beware! Don’t get carried away by the designs of the wood kitchen cabinets. You should select such a material so that your cabinets don’t give a torn and shabby look in the near future.
You will find a wide range of materials used in cabinets. They are wood, plywood, particleboard, medium density fiberboard metal and many others.
While purchasing all wood kitchen cabinets it is extremely important to see the type of wood used. The principle types of wood used are pine, birch, chestnut, oak etc. Maple kitchen cabinets are the best in quality. If you are searching for solid wood kitchen cabinets let me tell you that you can hardly find these, as these are normally way above your budget.
Plywood is probably the most universally used material for the cabinets. Plywood is composite material actually manufactured by using fine sheets of wood. Basically these sheets are glued and bonded together.
Their strength pertains to the fact that these are layered wood compressed together, which allows distribution of strength and stability in different directions.
Plywood kitchen cabinets are a wonderful choice if you have a slightly flexible budget. Cabinets’ where only plywood has been used is quite inexpensive. Cabinets where wood and plywood are in the ratio of 1:4, they will be a little more expensive. Cabinets that will have both of them in equal proportion will have a higher price tag.
Plywood proves to be a fabulous material for the cabinet when given a wooden finish. You can beautify plywood by pasting laminated sheets. These are available in both glossy and matte finish. Select the one that compliments your kitchen décor.
Plywood can also be used to support the countertops. Usually 1/2” plywood is used for this purpose. These are resistant to warping and cracking. These will run more than particleboard.
Shopping for these kitchen cabinets is easy. You can either visit your local retailers or you may browse the Internet for home improvement stores selling plywood kitchen cabinets. For a bargain you should also try eBay or other auction websites.
On the Internet you can see the cabinets and can compare their prices instantly. Some websites even show you three-dimensional views or even allow you to design your cabinets using tools.
Choose a design and color that will match your home and kitchen. As kitchen cabinets made of plywood are available with a variety of laminates to choose from you have a lot of choice. You may also apply wood veneer on the plywood. That will be more lasting option than laminates.
