Post subject: Plywood or MDF/HDF for Kitchen cabinets

Kitchen cabinets are frequently in close contact with moisture (cooker vapours, heavy water use in kitchen and consequently high water vapour etc.).

As a result you would be best placed to choose either marine or commercial ply or if you are looking for a cheaper alternative you could go for high quality HDF. You can look up more information on plywood here at http://www.buildmatic.in/blog/plywood-interior-finishes/ or browse various carpentry products at http://www.buildmatic.in/carpentry.html/. Please note that HDF is better than MDF, but is not moisture resistant.

In summary, if there is a high chance of water contact, I would strongly suggest to go for ply based kitchen cabinets. The price of plywood based kitchen cabinets would be higher, but would be long lasting. Price of MDF based kitchen cabinets would be lower, but will not give you such a long life span.

Hope that helps.

For kitchen bottom cabinets, it should be plywood( either MR or BWR or BWP).
In case of, semi modular kitchen you can go for MR ply or MDF. because it will have be less contact with moisture.
but for full modular kitchen, strictly BWR or BWP ply.
If you want to get some idea on cost try this modular kitchen cost calculator
