Top 3 Kitchen Cabinet Door Materials for Durability and Style

Renovating or refacing your kitchen can be a daunting task. Choosing the right material is crucial for both aesthetic appeal and durability and with a wide range of door materials available in the market these days, it can be overwhelming to make the right choice.

Luckily, Swedish Door has various solutions to meet your needs with dedicated Sales Representatives who can help guide you.

High-Density Fibreboard (HDF)

Are you looking for a sturdy but, budget-friendly option for kitchen cabinet doors? Our painted finishes are all made on HDF because they offer a smooth, uniform surface that can be easily customized to suit various styles. Due to their density, they are less porous than an MDF or particleboard which also makes them more resistant to moisture.

Solid Wood

Hardwood has long been a staple in crafting exquisite furniture, and when it comes to kitchen cabinet doors, it's no different. Solid wood doors made from materials like oak, maple, walnut, or cherry, offers a classic elegance that stands the test of time.Red Oak veneer wood cabinet doors

The durable nature of the product is great for busy kitchens and is easy to clean.

Since each wood has its own unique grain patterns, this option can provide warmth and a luxurious setting in any kitchen.


Particle Board

Particle board is an engineered wood product that is commonly used for kitchen cabinet doors due to its affordability and versatility.

One of the advantages of particle board is its cost-effectiveness, which makes it a popular option for budget-conscious consumers. Additionally, particle board is often made from recycled wood products which makes it an appealing option to the eco-friendly customer.

This type of wood is usually used as a substrate for products that can provide full coverage such as laminate and Thermofoil wraps since it covers the entire door.

A notable disadvantage to consider however is its susceptibility to moisture damage since it tends to swell and deteriorate when exposed to water. This makes it less suitable for areas prone to high humidity or moisture.

Because particle board lacks the strength and durability of solid wood and HDF, it can be prone to chipping and wear over time. Even though it serves as a budget-friendly option for cabinet doors, individuals should weigh the cost savings against the potential for reduced longevity if not properly sealed.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                               PXL_20231211_204218291
