Once you start shopping around for South Coast kitchen cabinets, you will notice that there is a wide range of differences between the “low end” cabinets and the more expensive designer kitchen cabinets that are on the market. However, it is possible to get quality materials in the way of all wood construction cabinets through Cabinet Factory Outlet in Swansea. Whether you are a homeowner or a contractor looking to install cabinets in Southeastern Massachusetts, you can find everything you want at a surprisingly affordable price in just about every style, color and design at our outlet showroom.
What Are All Wood Construction Cabinets?
In the cabinet industry, products that are made from wood instead of particle board are referred to as all wood construction cabinets. They can be made of a variety of different woods and can be created with a range of solid cut wood and plywood or wood veneers. While it might sound like plywood is not a good choice, the truth is that these thinner materials are better for quality cabinetry because when they are glued together in a cross-grain pattern to make a composite sheet, they become even more stable and resistant to heat and moisture than a pure solid cut piece of wood.
Our all wood construction cabinets available through Cabinet Factory Outlet are made from high quality solid maple. They add value to your home and offer rich details, attractive finishes and a variety of sizes and specialty options that can be used to create custom results. Our South Coast kitchen cabinets also include dovetail drawer construction with full-extension, soft closing, under mount glides, plus finished sides and interiors that are designed to impress.
Comparing our all wood construction cabinets to other low-end kitchen cabinet products, the other guys use a man-made composite sheet wood product known as particle board, which is created using a combination of wood chips and particles, along with glues and resins, to create a specific shape with a mold or through the use of pressure. While there are many different quality grades of particle board, it just can’t beat the aesthetic and durable results of solid maple wood products.
Advantages of All Wood Construction Cabinets
When it comes time to choose the materials that you will use to install cabinets in Southeastern Massachusetts, it pays to select the very best that you can afford. Save on designer kitchen cabinets in all styles, colors and designs at Cabinet Factory Outlet so you can have better quality products at a price that you can afford. There are a lot of advantages to choosing all wood construction cabinets over other types of South Coast kitchen cabinets, as we have outlined below.
- Durability – Plywood materials will hold fasteners such as screws and nails much better than particleboard. They also are more effective at holding glued joints. You can recognize higher quality all wood construction cabinets from cheaper versions by the type of joints that they have. Mechanical joints are cheaper to make, and are ultimately less effective, than glued joints like the dovetail drawer construction found in our quality South Coast kitchen cabinets and cupboards.
- Moisture – When it comes to wood products, one of the biggest enemies is moisture. Finding designer kitchen cabinets that can handle moisture exposure, such as boiling water, steaming on the stove, water leaks and other humid situations, is important to gain the biggest return on your investment. Particle board is not good at resisting water and after repeated exposure to moisture, it can swell and lose its structural strength. Plywood is much more water resistant, however excessive or long-term exposure to water will eventually affect all woods.
- Strength – Overall, plywood is much stronger than particle board. The design of the boards themselves is what separates them in this area. Particle board – even higher quality particle board – simply cannot stand up to plywood and other all wood construction cabinets materials. The particle board will scratch and dent more easily than real wood construction and cannot hold up to regular use over time.
- Pricing – You will initially see that particle board cabinets cost much less than all wood construction cabinets, simply because they are less expensive to create. The wood particles used to create them is considered “waste” by most industries so the materials are cheaper. True designer kitchen cabinets should be made from solid wood and plywood veneers. They will cost a bit more, somewhere between 10-20 percent, but overall they will provide better, longer-lasting results, making them worth the investment.
