Even though this seems like a simple question, it is still important because the type of kitchen plywood design you choose depends on several things, such as its weight, colour, the temperatures and air conditions it is exposed to, etc.

Here are some of the most common types of plywood used in modular kitchens today:

Commercial/Moisture-Resistant Plywood:

It is more affordable than BWP and BWR plywood; durable, fungus-resistant, impact-resistant, and moisture-resistant; nevertheless, it is not waterproof and is appropriate for use in kitchen cabinets in a distant area from any source of water.

Boiling Waterproof (BWP) Plywood:

It can stay wet for long periods and at different temperatures. It is of higher quality and costs more than commercial and BWR plywood. This plywood is best for making modular kitchens.

Boiling Water Resistant (BWR) Plywood:

It doesn't get damaged by water or steam. It is high quality, more expensive than commercial plywood, and strong, but not as strong as BWP.

Laminated Plywood:

Laminated plywood for modular kitchens is plywood with a laminate film on one or both sides. The laminate film is resistant to chemicals, water, and moisture and lasts long. There are different designs and colours of laminates for plywood.

Firewall/Fire Retardant Plywood:

It can't be absorbed by water and burns slowly, which slows the spread of fire and makes things safer.

Marine-Grade Plywood:

It is the best grade of plywood because it is resistant to water and can't get wet.

Softwood Ply:

It is weaker, softer, and lighter. It also burns faster, is easier to carve, and costs less.

Hardwood Ply:

It is stronger, harder, and heavier, lasts longer, burns slower, is harder to carve, and costs more.

Calibrated Ply:

It makes the kitchen look more aesthetically pleasing and has the most accuracy.
