What is the Most Durable Material for Kitchen Cabinets?


The kitchen is the center of the home. From cooking for your family to entertaining guests, even working from home, the kitchen provides a comfortable oasis for your entire family. Modern kitchen designs accommodate changes in the contemporary lifestyle. Whether you need a more accessible home, a space to teach the kids, or just a more functional kitchen space, having durable functional cabinets will save you money and hassle.

Choosing the Right Cabinets

Many times homeowners complain about their cramped cluttered kitchens. Customized cabinets address many problems in the home. For example, modern kitchen designs have special hidden storage, handle-free cabinets, and durable materials to ensure decades of use and functionality in the home. Additionally, today’s cabinets provide a beautiful aesthetic perfect for any home or budget.


What type of cabinet material should you choose? Our Jescore team will help you decide which cabinet material works best for your personal style and budget:

  • Hardwood
  • Plywood
  • Fiberboard
  • Veneer
  • Particleboard
  • High Gloss Cabinets
  • Aluminum
  • Glass

With so many options, deciding on the right material can be difficult. Consider you budget, lifestyle, storage needs, and kitchen décor. For example, particleboard and fiberboard has been an inexpensive option for many homeowners and apartment dwellers. However, the material is susceptible to moisture and very, very weak. Fiberboard may be cost-effective and easy to paint but also suffers from moisture damage over time.

The Strongest Materials

When choosing the best materials for your cabinets, look at hardwood and plywood for the best quality. Both aesthetically attractive and long-lasting, they will last for many, many years. Some homeowners might find cost a concern. Talk with our Jescore team about what options work within your budget. Hardwood and plywood come in a wide variety of styles and colors. You can find the right design for any home, large or small.

Other high quality options include glass cabinets, solid wood, and aluminum. Depending on the style of your home, you might want to consider these popular trends. Luxury cabinets often incorporate unique features like glass doors to show off prized China and give an overall calming spacious look.

What to Avoid

When replacing your cabinets and remodeling the kitchen, avoid low quality materials like particleboard. Both fiberboard and particleboard do not handle moisture well. They do not hold screws, leading to uneven and sometimes unsafe shelving. Additionally, water damage can damage the structural integrity of the cabinets. Particleboard sags over time and lacks durability. Instead opt for wood options like hardwood for sturdy cabinets.
