When buying cabinets, make sure they are quality. You used to be able to tell by checking for drawers with dovetail joints, but now manufacturers offer premium feature son even lower end cabinets.
The two materials which make up this type of kitchen cabinets are thermofoil and MDF. Thermofoil is a type of a flexible, thin vinyl material that has no metal content. It acts as a layer of coating that is vacuum pressed above the main cabinet material which is MDF. MDF, or medium density fiberboard, on the other hand, is made up of recycled wood fibers that are bound by resins. It is machine dried and pressed into sheets to produce a stable and sturdy material which is better than solid wood. MDF kitchen cabinets can stand up to heat better and adapts well to changes in humidity and exposure to moisture. MDF alone is not strong enough to be used as a kitchen cabinet material, but once treated with thermofoil, the result is a smooth cabinet door that resists chipping and damage better than regularly painted cabinets.
These features (or lack of features, rather) draw attention to the crisp lines of the kitchen cabinets.These days you will find cabinets sold in every color. A two-tone paint job is very common, wood with a bolder color looking very different.
You can also find these sorts of doors with a more traditional look, but they are one of the foundations of modern kitchen designs.
