How solid wood scores over particleboard

If you are considering new kitchen cabinets for your Cleveland home, you might wonder if an investment in solid wood products, rather than those which use less-expensive particleboard, is a wise investment. It’s a question that our team is often asked, as we never use particleboard. So, here’s why all our kitchen cabinets are constructed of solid and gorgeous wood, skillfully matched with plywood sides and backs.

Solid wood offers a rich and deep pattern, which works to reflect the beauty and style of your kitchen, which we know is a major and long-term investment for your home here in Ohio. This brings us to the second key benefit of solid wood: it lasts – after all there are not many historical and long-sustained particleboard forests around the world!

The sturdy strength of quality wood installations, especially the great hard woods, such as maple, are often constructed with much greater longevity in mind. Solid wood boxed and faced frames, plus expert dovetailed drawer construction, for example, has a feeling of both strength and satisfying permanence about it. Particleboard products can be much less holding, being more flimsy in themselves, and perhaps only secured using staples or glue.

Another concern when using particleboard, particularly when crafting a kitchen design for your Cleveland home, is what can happen when the surface gets wet; not an unusual event in a kitchen. If a part of the veneer or laminate is peeled away over time, and then water comes into contact with the particleboard surface, it is likely to start absorbing the water. Over a period of time it can then expand beyond any possible repair, and can even become quite brittle.

Legendary French shoe and fashion designer Christian Louboutin once said: ‘My father, who was a cabinetmaker, told me, ‘Wood has a grain and if you go into the grain, you have beauty. If you go against it, you have splinters – it breaks.’ Using beautiful solid wood for your kitchen cabinets goes, we believe, into the grain of good thinking!
