  • If you’re planning to choose metal cabinetry, you’ll have long-lasting, strong and durable cabinets. What many people love about this material is that it can be painted if you want to add a different look or new hardware. Metal cabinets are a great choice due to their appearance, and of course, their price.
  • Another very popular material used for laundry room cabinetry is wood. However, if you’re planning to install wood cabinets, you should consider a few things. First of all, laundry room is an area with excess humidity because of the moisture from your washer and dryer, which means you must make sure that the wood cabinets are properly sealed. What type of wood to choose? It is recommended to opt for hardwood, as it lasts longer and is more durable than soft wood.
  • Rubber laundry cabinetry has become quite popular in the last few years, probably because it’s affordable. Heavy-duty rubber storage is durable and strong. As for selection of sizes, colors and configurations, the options are endless.
