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.
Compared to the raised kitchen cabinet style, the recessed kitchen cabinet design has a more sleek appearance, making it more suitable for modern and contemporary kitchen decor styles. The minimal presence of ornamentation conforms to minimalist design and its simplicity allows it to blend well with contemporary inspired interiors. Compared to raised panel kitchen what cabinets, this style offers versatility and can work even in transitional and traditional kitchen settings.
