A lot of cabinets that are made out of MDF board are found at large construction stores. This is why their cabinets are so inexpensive because the materials they are using are cheap. This is why you should always steer clear of big construction stores when buying cabinets.

A lot of smaller companies that sell cabinets say their cabinets are made with plywood. A lot of them are not lying – they do use plywood in their cabinets, but they leave out one big detail: the center layer of their panels is MDF board. That MDF board varies in size, but regardless of the thickness of this centerpiece of MDF board, it creates inherent problems.

One of the great features of plywood cabinets was that the cross-graining technique drastically improved the strength and resiliency of the board. Having an MDF core interrupts that cross-graining pattern, and completely compromises the strength, and integrity of the board. Also, remember that if any water gets into the MDF board, it expands and warps. When this happens with cabinets also made with plywood, it separates the MDF from the plywood layers, and in turn causes the layers of plywood to separate, creating more warping, and reducing the overall strength of the wood.

Plywood cabinets are the superior product in so many ways. It is resilient thanks to the strength it has due to the way it is assembled, and its lack of vulnerabilities that its MDF and particleboard counterparts have. At the end of the day, you want to be confident in the product that you choose. Plywood gives you that confidence and reassurance, from its sturdy construction, down to its feel that other products lack – the feeling of real wood.

While MDF can sometimes look like wood, it cannot match the quality that wood offers, and here at Maplevilles Canada, nothing is more important to us than the quality we offer. MDF furniture and cabinets are not high quality and they are not long-lasting, and that means that they are not for us. When you can have real Canadian hardwood, we see no reason to settle for a substitute.
