The question one asks just after deciding to get one’s kitchen renovated or getting a brand new modular kitchen is – what material to use?
Suppliers of modular kitchens in Surat, Ahmedabad, Rajkot, and all other cities know that both MDF and particle board have their own sets of pros as well as cons. But, the trick is to use those pros and cons to the full advantage of the consumer.
And just so you can take the right decision, based on your set of requirements, we bring you a some factors and some individual attributes that differentiate these two materials:
