How to Choose Kitchen Cabinet Material

When choosing kitchen cabinets, there are many things that come into play.  One of the most important things is the type of material that you are going to use.  There are three different types of material to choose from:

Laminate: Laminate cabinets, made from multiple layers of kraft paper, are the least expensive. The upside is they can be found in nearly any color. The downside is they’re can be easily chipped, which is difficult to repair.

Wood: Durable and available in a variety of types, colors and finishes, wood cabinets fall into a mid-range price level. However, they tend to expand and contract according to humidity levels, and can warp over time.

Metal: Usually made of stainless steel, these cabinets are pricier than wood. Metal cabinets tend to show fingerprints and scratches easily, but are durable and easy to clean.

Glass: Glass cabinets are often paired with wood cabinets to add texture and color variation to a space. They help light move throughout the space, but because your dishes are noticeable, your cabinets and the items in them need to be organized and worth displaying.
