Hi, everyone. I have seriously been torturing myself over this decision: plywood or mdf for the box/interiors of my kitchen cabinets?
I had always thought I would be using plywood. When I went to one $$$ cabinet manufacturer in a showroom, the guy was really pushing mdf (doors and melamine-coated interior). He said that believing plywood was the best was an American way of thinking, and that mdf was an excellent top-of-the-line choice. He said at some high-end cabinet dealers, you are only given mdf, and no other choice. He said a lot of European manufacturers only use mdf. So let us take a look at best mdf board kitchen storage corner cabinet with 24 pictures below.

After talking to some other people and doing a lot of research, I just decided I would go for the mdf. Weeks of torture was over.

But then, a general contractor came out today and he asked what kind of cabinets I would be using. When I told him about the mdf, he SCOWLED at it! He said plywood was the best, was pricier, but well worth it. He urged me to reconsider my choice.
And now, I am tortured again. I was confident that whatever material I was using from this expensive showroom would be quality. So I wasn&#039t so bothered. But now that I have come back to the basics of mdf versus plywood, I have no idea!! Which, in your honest opinion, is the better choice overall? I know it&#039s more expensive, so I&#039m not basing this on budget. I just cannot seem to make up my mind about which is the better choice.

Well, with the doors, it depends on style, paint (or not), etc. For the boxes? Pfft. If you&#039re really paranoid but want to be frugal, get plywood for sink cabinet and anywhere you might maybe have a big water leak and MDF elsewhere. Do be sure it&#039s not bad MDF (and I don&#039t know how you&#039d check that) but good MDF makes a perfectly acceptable material where you don&#039t get water or direct wear. And of course you don&#039t want to SEE it.
