Kitchen Cabinet Buying Guide

Countertop options

The quality of the countertop material, processing accuracy, strength, hardness, non-toxicity, and non-radioactive properties are all key indicators to measure the quality of the countertop. When purchasing, only consider whether it is scratch-resistant, temperature-resistant, environmentally friendly, and easy to clean.


Door panel options

The cabinet door panel material can be divided into double-veneer type, baking varnish type, fireproof board, blister type, molded door panel, solid wood type and so on.


-solid wood door panel

There are many kinds of materials, and the more commonly used ones are cherry wood, oak, ash, birch, etc. The characteristics and prices of the wood vary greatly.

Advantage: Natural appearance, strong and durable, environmentally friendly

Disadvantage: Can not be exposed to the sun, easily deformed


-PVC film pressure blister board

Use medium density board as the base material to hollow out the pattern, and use imported PVC veneer to form after hot pressing and blister. The color is like a high-grade mirror paint, which looks very high-grade. Suitable for European pastoral and avant-garde style.

Advantage : Waterproof, stain resistant, and fade resistant

Disadvantage: Thermal expansion and cold contraction can easily cause the film to take off, and the anti-slip and scratch-resistant properties are poor


-Double veneer

-Fireproof board

It is called refractory board, which has abrasion resistance, heat resistance and open flame resistance, scratch resistance and easy cleaning, rich color and good stability. Suitable for pragmatism.


Base material options

We can see that 80% of a kitchen cabinet is made up of the cabinet. Not only that, the hardware and door panels are directly connected to the cabinet. In addition to the waterproof and moisture-proof performance of the cabinet when choosing the cabinet, special attention should be paid to the formaldehyde problem.


-Density board

Also called fiberboard, according to the different density, it is divided into high density board, medium density board and low density board. Generally used as cabinet or box material.

Advantages: The surface is smooth, the wood is evenly thin, the flatness is high, more shapes can be processed, and it is not easy to deform. Especially suitable for curved and special-shaped designs.

Disadvantages: high water swelling rate and poor nail holding power.


-Particle board

The thin board is made of wood scraps as the main raw material, and then infiltrated with glue and additives.

Advantages: light weight, strong nail holding power, good moisture and water resistance. It is easier to control the amount of formaldehyde released, and it is not easy to deform. Easy to paint and surface decoration, suitable for flat furniture.

Disadvantages: Fragile and fragile, not easy to bend. Generally not suitable for making larger furniture.


Hardware accessories

Most functions of the cabinet require hardware support. Generally speaking, the hardware accessories mainly include hinges, slide rails, damping, air support, hanging yards, adjusting feet, skirting boards, etc. The quality of hardware often determines the service life of the cabinet. It is best to choose hardware products of big brands. When purchasing, it is mainly to look at whether the appearance is defective, how the electroplating gloss is, and whether the hand feel is smooth, etc.
