painted wood shaker doors with mdf center panel?

9 years ago

Hello wise forumites,

I am closing in on our cabinet decision for our remodel, and I have just realized that the shaker style doors we have chosen have MDF in the centers. Cursory forum searches tell me this isn't necessarily a bad or unusual thing for painted shaker cabs, but I want to double check. The outside panels are wood (maple). Do I need to worry about the MDF? I have a baby who is going to grow up to a rambunctious toddler and then a rambunctious kid :) and I'm just imagining him bashing into these doors. Am I about to make an expensive mistake? Should I reconsider?
