Healthy Cabinets on a Budget
We are going to be doing a major remodel (moving the location of the kitchen all together) in the near future. One of our major concerns is avoiding toxic chemicals and off-gassing to help keep my asthma under control. It seems that all off-the-shelf, affordable cabinet options are made of particle board. The toxic paint on many metal cabinets is also not much of an option. Our existing cabinets are plywood, and we would like to re-use what we can to avoid the "new cabinet smell". However, because we are completely reconfiguring the kitchen, it's not clear if this will work. We will certainly need to buy some, if not all, new cabinets. We simply can't afford solid wood. Any ideas about healthy, reasonably priced options for us?
