Advantages of solid wood kitchen cabinets

Although solid wood is more expensive than plywood or particle board construction, this material has a number of advantages:

  • Durability--solid wood lasts longer than particle board construction
  • Damage resistance--particle board is susceptible to moisture damage, chipping and peeling, while solid wood is not
  • Strength--wood cabinets support heavy countertop materials, like granite; particle board and plywood sag over time
  • Beauty--although many veneers come close to mimicking wood grain, some will fade, peel and chip over time

Solid research means solid discounts on kitchen cabinets

As you begin your research, you will find wide variations in the cost of wood cabinets. Get a true cost for your kitchen remodel by asking for specific quotes, based on the size, style and number of cabinets required. The type of wood you choose can affect cost. While less durable over time, soft woods like pine are less expensive than hardwoods, such as oak, maple, birch, hickory and cherry.

Consider these manufacturers, when you research kitchen cabinets and remodels:

  • Thomasville
  • KraftMaid
  • Merillat
  • Armstrong
  • Medallion
  • Adelphi
  • Masterbrand

Armed with your kitchen measurements, the style and type of wood you desire, the quotes you get from local suppliers and internet sites will be more accurate and allow you to work within your budget. Stick with it!
