“Buying based on price hasn’t done well for us,” complains Tracy.

 Bill sighs and nods. “I know what you mean. All this stuff we bought on the cheap didn’t last very long or look that good in the end.”

Tracy huffs. “And that’s exactly what we aren’t going to do with our kitchen cabinets. We are going to use the most durable kitchen cabinets and the most durable kitchen cabinet finish. These cabinets will last for decades!”

Bill laughs. “That sounds perfect! Just, we need to find out what they are first, and how much kitchen cabinets cost,” he says as he takes out his phone. “Let’s search it on Google.” He starts as Tracy walks over to see too.

Here’s what the couple finds out:

The Strongest Kitchen Cabinet Material

The most durable kitchen cabinets are ones made from solid hardwood. Cherry and maple are popular choices. They’re the most expensive but they last a long time and look great doing it. Plywood and MDF (medium-density fiberboard) are less expensive choices.

The Strongest Kitchen Cabinet Finish

The most durable kitchen cabinet finish is a catalyzed conversion varnish. This is the most durable finish available for wood. It’s chemical and moisture resistant, making it easy to clean. It’s also more flexible. This means it expands and contracts with the wood as the temperature changes.

This varnish is great for paints and stains. It might be more expensive than traditional lacquer but the benefits are worth it. Your cabinets should look better for longer.

Cabinet manufacturers will use an oven-baked finish, which helps cabinets keep their color and sheen for longer (which you can’t get when refinishing).
