Woodies Kitchens

One homeowner's high-end is another homeowner's low-end.
And all too often, high style is mistaken for quality--leaving materials and workmanship ignored. Let's look at a few accepted hallmarks of high end kitchen cabinets and where you can buy such cabinets.


What Are High End Kitchen Cabinets?

Here at Woodies we define high end cabinets as a combination of three factors:


1.) Quality materials;


2.) Quality workmanship; and


3.) Unique styling.Does "sleek and Euro" mean high end? Not always. Example: IKEA kitchen cabinets have achieved a gloss of "high end" over the years, mainly through aggressive marketing. While its style mimics high-end European cabinetry, its construction is decidedly basic: lots of MDF, thermofoil, cheap fixtures, and balky hinges and slides.

Box Materials

Kitchen cabinets are really just a bunch of boxes affixed to your walls and resting on the floor. So it's no accident that industry parlance for this part of the construction is simply "the box." The box should not be MDF or any other type of pressboard. Despite industry claims to the contrary, I do not believe you can build a quality kitchen cabinet box out of MDF.

Plywood: The plywood used in quality kitchen cabinets is not the stuff on the bulk racks at Home Depot. It's furniture-grade plywood that performs as well or even better than solid wood. -Plywood will be found in the box, not doors and other finish surfaces.

Solid Wood: Solid wood doors and drawer fronts are par for the course in high end kitchen cabinets.


Box Dimensions: Panel Thickness
Outside dimensions of the box vary. But within each box, recommended thicknesses of panels are:

• Doors: 3/4" (18mm) thick.
• Floor Panels: 1/2" (12.5mm) thick.
• Ceilings (Wall Cabinet Only): 1/2" (12.5mm) thick.
• Back Panel (Wall Cabinet Only): 1/2" (12.5mm) thick--important because the cabinets hang from this panel.
