Kitchen & Vanity by Coldii. The lowest prices and best quality in Alberta

Guide to Materials Used in Custom Kitchen Furniture Production

Creating the perfect custom kitchen requires more than just design expertise; it demands an in-depth understanding of the materials that bring those designs to life. At Coldii Inc., based in Alberta, Canada, we specialize in crafting bespoke kitchen furniture, TV cabinets, and vanities tailored to your unique tastes and needs. In this guide, we’ll explore the key materials we use in our production process to ensure quality, durability, and aesthetic appeal.

1. Solid Wood

Solid wood remains a classic choice for custom kitchen furniture. It offers unparalleled strength and natural beauty, with unique grain patterns that add character to each piece. Popular options include:


    • Oak: Known for its robustness and timeless appeal.

    • Maple: Offers a smooth finish, ideal for modern designs.

    • Cherry: Provides rich, warm tones that deepen over time.

Solid wood is perfect for cabinet doors, drawer fronts, and structural elements, ensuring your kitchen stands the test of time.

2. Plywood

Plywood is a versatile and reliable material made from thin layers of wood veneer glued together. Its benefits include:


    • Strength and Stability: Less prone to warping and shrinking compared to solid wood.

    • Cost-Effective: Offers a great balance of quality and affordability.

    • Versatility: Can be used for cabinets, shelves, and paneling.

At Coldii Inc., we often use high-grade plywood for the internal structure of our kitchen cabinets, providing a sturdy foundation that supports daily use.

3. MDF (Medium-Density Fiberboard)

MDF is an engineered wood product made from wood fibers and resin, known for its smooth surface and consistency. It’s ideal for:


    • Painted Finishes: Its smooth surface takes paint exceptionally well, allowing for a flawless finish.

    • Detailed Designs: Easily machined for intricate profiles and details.

MDF is a preferred choice for cabinet doors and decorative elements where a sleek, painted look is desired.

4. Particle Board

Particle board is another engineered wood product made from wood chips and resin. While not as strong as plywood or MDF, it has its advantages:


    • Affordability: More budget-friendly, making it a popular choice for cost-conscious projects.

    • Lightweight: Easier to handle and install.

We use particle board for interior components where cost savings are a priority without compromising on functionality.

5. Laminate and Melamine

For surfaces that require durability and ease of maintenance, laminate and melamine are excellent choices:


    • Laminate: Offers a wide range of colours and patterns, perfect for countertops and cabinet fronts.

    • Melamine: Provides a hard, durable surface that resists scratches and stains, ideal for high-traffic areas.

These materials are easy to clean and maintain, making them a practical choice for busy kitchens.

6. Quartz and Granite

When it comes to countertops, quartz and granite are popular for their beauty and durability:


    • Quartz: Engineered stone that offers consistent patterns and colours, with excellent resistance to stains and scratches.

    • Granite: Natural stone with unique, one-of-a-kind patterns, known for its strength and heat resistance.

Both materials provide a luxurious finish that enhances the overall aesthetic of your kitchen.

7. Hardware and Accessories

The right hardware can make a significant difference in the functionality and style of your kitchen. We offer a range of high-quality options:


    • Soft-Close Hinges and Drawer Slides: Ensure smooth, quiet operation and prevent slamming.

    • Decorative Handles and Knobs: Available in various finishes to complement your design.


At Coldii Inc., we pride ourselves on using the best materials to create custom kitchen furniture that combines functionality, durability, and style. Whether you prefer the classic look of solid wood or the modern appeal of laminate, our expert team is here to help you choose the perfect materials for your dream kitchen.
