Solid Hardwood Cabinet Doors In and Outside your Home

Published: April 18, 2022



When it comes to the cabinets in your home it may come time to replace or reface and you will be faced with the question: do you get real hardwood or MDF. While the MDF may be the less expensive option it isn’t necessarily the best. MDF or Medium Density Fiberboard is a man made material that is free of knots and other wood defining characteristics, while this can be considered good in some applications it also has its weaknesses, it is not as strong as natural wood, it can be extremely heavy and it will deteriorate when it gets wet. While MDF can be sealed and painted to make it more resistant to water damage this can be an expensive and tedious process as the cut edges require special attention to make sure they are sealed properly.

Why use Solid Wood

When it comes to wooden cabinet doors some wood species are better than others as well as more preferred by homeowners. If you are replacing cabinet doors in your kitchen and plan on staining them or applying a clear coat to bring out their natural beauty we recommend cherry, maple and oak woods as these woods all have a beautiful grain pattern and color that will pop in your kitchen. However if you are looking to get new wood cabinet doors but painting them instead of staining them, you can get away with a less expensive wood such as poplar. Now if you are looking for cabinet doors in a marine application we highly recommend teak as this will withstand the harsh conditions salt water offers. There are other woods that are good for exterior applications where salt water isn’t involved, such as cedar, cypress and knotty alder.

Our beautiful wooden cabinet doors are manufactured using natural hardwoods using old time joinery so that they will last for years to come. Wooden cabinet doors have a natural beauty that can be accentuated with a stain or clear coat to bring out its natural grain and preserve it for years to come.
