Are you considering a Thermofoil cabinet as an option in your next kitchen or bathroom renovation? Thermofoil cabinets are made using a flexible vinyl material that is applied by heating the vinyl and molding it over medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or engineered wood. Thermofoil has come a long way in recent years and offers many benefits to consumers who are looking for a product with good quality, durability and versatility. Here are some reasons that Thermofoil has become a great alternative to wood and laminate.
Moisture resistant : In a high humidity location wood and laminate can warp and expand over time, whereas a Thermofoil cabinet is unaffected. It is the perfect choice for a busy bathroom or kitchen.
Easy to clean and low maintenance : Thermofoil is stain resistant and easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth. It stands up to the wear and tear of a busy family and doesn’t lose it’s lustre after frequent washing, as solid wood can.
Lots of options : Wood grains, bold colours, textured surfaces, patterns…there are a ton of options to choose from and you can mix and match to create the style that suits your home. Combine the Thermofoil wrap of your choice with the cut and style of door that you want. Your options are endless.
Great price : Compared to wood, Thermofoil is easier on the budget, but you can get the same high end look. Also, do you want to change the look of your kitchen, without changing the layout? Thermofoil offers the option of updating your look by adding new doors to the existing cabinet boxes, which is far less expensive than a whole kitchen overhaul, and is less work than a DIY job of stripping and refinishing existing doors.
Durability : Thermofoil is resistant to scratches and dents, and can look brand new for many years. Are you looking to upgrade cabinets in a rental property or high traffic space? Consider Thermofoil as an option for a product that will require little maintenance for years to come.
