What are kitchen end panels?
End Panels are a great way to hide exposed cabinetry ends. When working with a typical kitchen design, you’ll notice that only the doors, drawers and top surfaces are coloured. The rest of the cabinet – also known as the carcass components (the bottom, back and sides) are constructed from carcass white board. Hence, the need for end panels, to create a more complete look.
White High-Moisture-Resistance Particleboard (HMR PB) is often used in kitchen cabinetry, alongside screw and dowel construction. This is an effective technique, resulting in a very strong and sturdy cabinet but it does leave visible screw holes on the sides of the carcass. Cabinetry which buts up against other cabinets or a wall aren’t an issue – however, this layout doesn’t always suit people’s needs or designs.
