Engineered Wood Cabinets

Posted on: June 27, 2013

Engingeered Wood Cabinetry

Your cabinetry is not only important in improving the functionality of your kitchen, but it can also enhance the overall style and design. If you want a European look for your kitchen, you may want to consider engineered wood cabinets.

About Engineered Wood

Engineered wood is also referred to as composite wood or manufactured board-it includes wood products that are made by binding particles, fibers, or veneers of wood together with adhesives to form composite materials. Engineered wood products are engineered to precise design specifications that are tested to meet national or international standards.

Engineered wood products are usually manufactured from the same woods used to make lumber. For engineered wood consisting of wood particles or fibers, sawmill scraps or other wood waste can be used. Whole logs, on the other hands, are typically used for veneers, such as MDF, particle board, or plywood.

Engineered Wood for Kitchen Cabinetry

Engineered wood is often used in residential products like cabinetry. The Jack Rosen team has designed kitchens that feature cabinets with engineered wood veneers. Engineered wood cabinets have modern, sleek lines and can provide a European look for your kitchen.

In the top picture of a Potomac, MD kitchen, the cabinet fronts were made from “engineered” wood veneers. The process used wood fiber that was manipulated through computer design to create a natural appearance.

The bottom picture is Elmwood cabinetry in our showroom. The engineered wood veneer offers a European look, and the cabinetry has a particle board (composite engineered wood product made from wood chips or sawmill shavings) with white melamine interior.

Melamine Cabinet Interiors

Hard laminated interiors-as opposed to real wood-like melamine resin are being used by more cabinet makers. Melamine is available in different sizes, thicknesses, colors, and patterns. One of the biggest benefits of melamine, especially for cabinet interiors, is its durability.

Add a European Touch to Your Kitchen

Beautiful engineered wood cabinets can provide a European feel to your kitchen-and particle board with melamine interiors can ensure your cabinets will last as long as possible. To learn more about engineered wood cabinetry veneer, contact us or stop by our showroom in Rockville, Maryland!

Working with Jack Rosen Custom Kitchens was a wonderful, pleasant experience. I wanted a sleek, modern kitchen in my Georgetown condominium, with unusual cabinets and lots of special features. I found exactly what I wanted in the broad selection at Jack Rosen. The designer laid out the space incredibly well; it has made an amazing difference in how the kitchen functions. The whole experience exceeded my expectations.
