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.
There is no doubt that the most dominant feature in a kitchen are the kitchen cabinets. It comprises more than 50 percent of the design and is the first thing that you see the moment you walk into a kitchen. They serve as strong focal points in a space, while serving functional benefits in terms of storage and organization. The choice of kitchen cabinets will greatly define the overall look and style of your kitchen, while also giving it a unique character.
