Kitchen Cabinets / September 25, 2018 / Banner Jones.
They look just like they sound: rectangular and ready to be filled up with shelving and drawers. Boxes are typically built in one of three ways: with plywood, particleboard or MDF (medium-density fiberboard) and a base that is later covered with a finish piece called a toe kick. There are pros and cons to each of these materials.
Material: Make sure you choose substantial, sturdy brackets, not tiny or plastic ones, because you want them to be able to hold the weight of the shelf and anything you put on it.
It may not always be practical or affordable to rebuild the cabinets in a kitchen or bathroom. Or you may like your cabinets, but they just need a refresh. Refacing them might be the best solution. But what does refacing involve? As with most construction projects, the answer depends on lots of details.
Many louvered doors have spaces between each slat, making them great for cabinets that require ventilation — like a cabinet near a radiator, a dedicated clothes drying cabinet in a laundry room or cabinetry for cable boxes and DVD players.
