Whether you’re looking to remodel your home or introduce new modular storages and cabinets, here are some materials to help you achieve stellar results. These cabinets are simple to install, aesthetically pleasing and can enhance the appeal of the entire area.

Trouble is, there are a large number of materials that can be used to build cabinetry whether it is for your kitchen or your bedroom or extra storages for living space. While all vary in terms of cost and durability, At Decorpot interior designers in Hyderabad want to ensure that you make the best choice. 

For that very reason, today we’ve decided to compile a list of the most durable materials that you can use to build your modular cabinets. The items have been listed in increasing order of cost, and we’ve also included the pros and cons of each.

Let’s take a look.


These sheets are made up of three layers: a bottom layer of brown paper coated with phenolic resin, on top of it a layer of designed, patterned or solid color paper, and finally a finishing layer. Laminates are usually very cost-effective and come with decorative surfaces. They are usually glued over a stronger base layer, such as MDF (Medium Density Fiberboard).
