Why is it that prefabricated cabinets cost so much? -Cookie
While prefabricated cabinets might look like they’re made from inexpensive particle board, they are actually constructed from a much higher quality product known as engineered wood. More durable than standard particle board, engineered wood weighs three times as much and can be submerged in water without damage. The core is then covered with either a simulated wood grain or wood veneer to give the cabinets the look of solid wood at a lower price.
