The major drawback of thermofoil kitchen cabinets is that it does not stand up to heat well. Their poor resistance to heat causes the laminate to pull away from the MDF panel. WIth that, installing them too close to a heat source may potentially cause a problem later on, but this issue can be rectified by installing a heat shield for the cabinets. Another problem that thermofoil kitchen cabinets pose is that the light color variants tend to have some discoloration and may turn yellowish over time. However, the positive features of thermofoil kitchen cabinets till outweigh the negative ones, which make them a cost effective kitchen cabinet option.
The type of paint used for wooden kitchen cabinetry are acrylic enamel paint, water based paints or alkyd paints. Acrylic or waterbased paints are a type of paint which can easily be cleaned off with water. They contain less fumes and are often odorless. Alkyd paints, on the other hand, are oil based and typically have a strong odor. Instead of using water for clean up, alkyd paints use mineral spirits.
