In the market for kitchen cabinets? Aesthetics are important, but here’s a quick guide to help you recognize key elements of cabinet construction and quality.
The stability and durability of a kitchen cabinet depends on the quality of its box construction. So how do you determine whether or not a box is built to last? Look for how it is reinforced. The box is most commonly made from particleboard, MDF, or plywood. Look for triangular braces in the corners of the box or a beam brace that runs in a dado slot along the inside of the side panels or along the back. These methods will ensure the box remains rigid and stable.
