Finishes are the final step added to kitchen cabinetry after they undergo construction. The purpose of finishing materials is to add color, enhance aesthetics and at the same time, provide added protection to kitchen cabinets. there are several options to choose from when deciding on the right finish for your cabinet, and each has their own positive and negative features. Here are some types of kitchen cabinet door finishes :
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.
