Thermofoil kitchen cabinets are also easy to maintain. It can be cleaned easily by wiping and resists stains better compared to natural wood. Unlike solid wood cabinetry which needs sealing, thermofoil cabinets does not require any special treatment for protection.
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.
Flat panel kitchen cabinets usually come in a solid wood or a decorative laminate finish. Using solid wood for a flat panel kitchen cabinet design showcases the raw, natural beauty of wood, without any need for an additional decor or ornamentation. However, if the project is leaned towards a more budget friendly option, decorative wood laminates can be used in order to mimic the appearance of real wood. Laminated flat panel kitchen cabinets also offer a wide variety of colors, designs and patterns to choose from, allowing you to create the perfect kitchen cabinet design that matches your personal taste and preference in style.
