I'm thinking of cabinets that are in the dining room and are more of a built in hutch, with glass panels in the doors instead of raised panels, lighting and grandma great's china.
These types of cabinets (hutch) are more for show than functionality. Plywood at $150 a sheet with some exotic wood veneer. They give the illusion of solid wood construction.
Functional cabinets made from Melamine are typically what you'll find in a kitchen. The domestic engineers really like the Melamine interior because it cleans so easily.
Installed cabinets typically do not show the sides of the carcass. If the cabinet is in a long row, only one side of the end cabinets will show. It doesn't make a lot of sense to use expensive plywood for the cabinets when only the interior will be visible.
Use the right tool for the job.
