Hi All, anyone does experience in installing kitchen cabinet for his/her new home?

These days I have met a few kitchen cabinet makers and getting a bit confuse about the materials they are using for my cabinet's door.

Common and economical material being used is ABS melamine board type.

However, there are some makers called this as Chipboard as well.


They claimed ABS melamine actually is Chipboard which I am not sure whether it is correct.

My understanding is that Chip Board is a kind of compressed of fibre wood materials that is even worse than Melamine board.

Anyone know the differences between these 2 materials?

Thanks.

abs melamine is basically laminted chipboard. previously the quality of the lamination was not very good in terms of water proofing etc. such that the chipboard will expand if the cabinet becomes wet, hot etc. and this will result in cracking on the cabinet door. however now, the quality of the lamination has improved tremendously, and i see the cabinets lasting much longer.

however, one problem is the strength of the cabinet in terms of holding screws. which will tend to become loose after a while.

solid wood is always the longest lasting.

Ya, normally those colour like red or green is request by young couple.
Black n white is the perfect match, but majority colour must be white, then black will be like secondary colour.
If u use black for whole cabinet, it look dark. uncless mix with aluminium or mirror. drool.gif

Is very difficult to tell 1 by 1 here, or I show 1 of his quotation to u as reference,

user posted image]

Like the cabinet shown above,

Granite for table surface, around rm190 pfr. (factory price)
If u order your cabinet from showroom, normally they charge rm260 pfr.

The price always depend on the design, material and accessories as well.

For those who wan to meet their budget, the price still can adjust due to different kind of materials.
