So what material is better?
There are many variables to consider when shopping for kitchen cabinets. One of the things you will come across is what cabinet box material to select. A common misconception we hear all the time from customers is that a plywood cabinet box makes a better cabinet and ultimately a superior product. What they are talking about is which material the cabinet box (top, bottom, sides and shelves) is constructed of. Most cabinets will either be constructed from plywood or particleboard. Both materials have their strengths and weaknesses.
