There are many materials used for kitchen cabinets, and some of them are as follows:
- MDF (Lassani): Nowadays, the most commonly used material for kitchen cabinets is MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard), also known as Lassani in Pakistan. This is a reasonable material.
- Chipboard: This material is also used for kitchen cabinets. It is an economical and low-cost material. Most people think that chipboard is easily damaged by water and MDF (Lassani) is better, but in reality, both materials can be damaged if they are dipped in water. However, the finishing of MDF is much better than chipboard.
- Plywood: Plywood can also be used for kitchen cabinets, but its appearance is not as good as chipboard or MDF (Lassani), and carpentry with this material is difficult.
- Strip board: This is an old material that is rarely used for cabinets, and its appearance is not very attractive.
- PVC foam board: This is a new material for kitchen cabinets. It is also waterproof, but it is costly. If you can afford it and need water and termite-proof material, you can use it.
- WPC: WPC stands for (Wood Plastic Composite). This material is also waterproof and available in some beautiful finishes. If you can afford it, you should use it.
- Concrete walls: For base cabinets in the kitchen, you can make cemented walls and fix tiles on them. Most Pakistani people think that kitchen cabinets should be made with tiles because the Pakistani lifestyle of kitchen work is messy, and most kitchens have servants who use the kitchen frequently. Therefore, it is better to make it with concrete walls once, but this is not an international format and not 100 percent accurate. If you can compromise on quality, you can make the kitchen with cemented walls.
