If you're doing a painted finish, an MDF center panel is much more stable than a wood panel.. What the means is that there is a lot less expansion and contraction so the paint joints will not show as much.

Like with anything, it depends on how well it's built, but MDF center panels are very common on painted finishes and are very stable. Do you know the brand of cabinets, or is be or she building them?

If you have an experienced builder/carpenter most likely they'll be using high end materials so you'll be just fine. I'd love to see the results if you've got any pictures..

It'll all work out in the end, remodeling is tough, just roll with it and it'll look fine when it's done!
