The quality of your kitchen cabinets can be measured by their construction based on the materials that have been used and how these materials have been put together. These are the key features to look for when selecting cabinets especially when you expect them to remain as a permanent fixture in the kitchen for many years to come.

It’s worth the extra cost to make sure that you are buying something durable. Kitchen cabinets should be viewed as an investment and since they are used on a daily basis, you’ll need your cabinets to be able to withstand a lot of punishment.

Materials

Kitchen cabinets can be made from particle board, medium-density fiberboard, solid wood, and plywood. As a final finish, they may also include metal and melamine or laminate that is placed over the particle board or fiberboard.

Construction

Frameless and framed are the two designs to choose from when it comes to cabinets. Framed cabinets feature a frame outlining the cabinet box at the front while frameless cabinets don’t have a frame and use different techniques to support and assemble them.

Hardware and Mounting

There are different types of hardware available for the cabinets themselves and they vary in quality. Mounting brackets for shelves can either be made of metal or plastic. Some types of hardware give you the ability to open the drawer fully while others have restrictions. Also, there is hardware available with a soft-close feature that stops drawers from slamming shut.
