Particle board got a bad rap years ago when home center stores were selling cheap grade particle board cabinets. We use “thermally fused” melamine panels. These panels do have a particle board core, but it is an industrial grade of particle board that our industry uses in almost all cabinets. It is an excellent product that is consistent and provides a very durable surface for your cabinet interiors. That being said, we also offer plywood cabinets with a prefinished interior for those who just don’t want melamine.
