MFC – Melamine-Faced Chipboard

A go-to option for contemporary kitchens, Melamine-faced chipboard is a manufactured board famous for being economical and sturdy. Its chipboard core is built from scrap wood, sawdust and paper, covered in a melamine laminate. The surface of such cabinets is resistant to moisture, anti-fungal and effortless to maintain. The only drawback is that the chipboard core might likely expand and suffer damage just in case moisture gets in. However, most contemporary cabinets are well-sealed to counter this possibility.

MDF – Medium-Density Fibreboard

Another ideal mass-produced product, MDF, is deemed superior to the chipboard and is consequently marginally more pricey. More robust, denser and with a much smoother, resistant to moisture surface, MDF is crafted from wood fibres produced in a defibrillator. 

Timber-Faced MDF / Chipboard 

To duplicate the appeal and feel of authentic wood without the drawback of damage and warping, a slim veneer of timber is added on one, sometimes both sides of MDF/chipboard to give an impression of being an individual section of wood.


Plywood is a premium sheet material built from sheets of hardwood and is mostly utilised by bespoke cabinet manufacturers. It’s exceptionally durable and stable, practically bulletproof.

Real Wood

Solid wood in single planks is genuinely a highly improbable option for kitchen cabinets. They aren’t as unyielding as manmade boards and possibly warp in the course of a few years. If you are looking to work with a stringent budget for your home, the addition of solid wood elements can increase the price.
