Cabinet doors come in all materials, shapes, sizes, and price ranges. The strength or durability of a cabinet is determined by the quality of the cabinet doors; therefore, it is essential to choose a cabinet that has a superior quality door. Cabinet manufacturers customize cabinet doors in various shapes, styles and materials.
Most cabinet manufacturers use different woods for cabinet doors including solid wood cope and stick raised panel, square and arched mitered, recessed panel and solid wood. Other than natural wood, manufacturers also use MDF (medium-density fiberboard) and RTF (ridged thermo foil) for constructing cabinet doors. MDF is an excellent substitute for solid wood as it is uniform, very dense, smooth and free of knots and grain patterns.
