    Most kitchen have MDFs, fiberboards and medium density wooden laminated boards; but you need to replace such material after a certain time. These boards are rust and oil resistant, but they do not provide durability and longevity. So it is better to mix the traditional materials with modern ones when designing your kitchen.

    For contemporary kitchens, design your kitchen cabinets with soft wood. Make sure to choose the right materials that are durable, rust resistant and water resistant such as block boards or laminated plywood for your cabinets.


    These are machine made woods that are completely moisture-resistant. But there are various types of plywood available in the market and you need to choose them according to their density. Apart from that, you must check their warranty and certification before buying.

  • Hardware:

    you need to use proper hardware to fix such plywood. Not only that, you may need some additional hardware to fix ther parts of your kitchen.

    For example, if you want to install granite bench tops in your kitchen, you must use proper sealing; and you may need to reseal your bench tops after certain time. So it is better to visit your nearest hardware store to get their advice and to ensure you pick up overall best quality products.
