Benefits Of MDF Cabinet Doors By Ekitchens In Perth

When it comes to choosing a material for your kitchen cabinet doors, you need to find a product which both looks great and that will last the distance. With that in mind, MDF (medium-density fibreboard) is an awesome, versatile option. MDF is a type of engineered wood which is made of thin panels of wood fibre, wax and resin and is a popular choice for kitchens.


 If you’re not convinced that MDF is the right choice for you, let’s take a closer look at the benefits of choosing this material for your new kitchen.


Strong and durable

Thanks to the dense construction of MDF, it’s a strong and durable material which is perfect for the kitchen. Although MDF has previously had a reputation as being flimsy, good quality MDF will last a long time and continue to look great well into the future.


Numerous colours and finishes

The smooth surface of MDF means that a range of colours and finishes can easily be applied to complete the look. Whether you want to do with raw MDF and paint it yourself or choose an option which is ready made with the colour of your choice, you’ll love the final look.


Lack of grain

The beauty of MDF is that, unlike wood, it has no grain. This means that it has no natural defects and can be cut, drilled and filed without damaging the rest of the cabinet door. With MDF, installation is easy as you don’t need to worry about an inconsistent look or unnecessary damage during installation.


No warping or cracking

Like solid wood, MDF will expand and contract with heat and moisture. However, the structure of the material means that it won’t warp or crack. If you live in an area with fluctuating temperatures or high levels of humidity, MDF is a great option.



Compared with other materials, MDF has the advantage of being affordable so it won’t break the bank. Whether you’re overhauling your entire kitchen or just updating a few cabinets, it’s good to know that your budget will be under control. Despite being a budget friendly option, MDF is also durable so you won’t need to replace your doors after a short time.


Easy to customise

Due to the strong construction of MDF, it can be cut into various different styles without causing damage to the wood. Whether you want a sleek, modern look or a country feel with cut out detailing, there will be an MDF option for you.
