When you feel like your kitchen looks out-of-date and worn out, one way you can significantly enhance your kitchen and make it look more modern is by opting for new kitchen cabinet installation.

Kitchen cabinets play an essential role in the functionality of your kitchen. In addition to being a reliable storage solution for the space, kitchen cabinets contribute the largest design element to the kitchen itself. Therefore, it is important to pick cabinets not only with a certain aesthetic appeal that will make the space feel new, but that also are durable and spacious enough to provide practical and long-lasting use. While there are many kitchen cabinet styles and finishes to choose from, Thermofoil kitchen cabinets are a great choice for your kitchen renovation project.

What Are Thermofoil Kitchen Cabinets?

Thermofoil kitchen cabinets are manufactured using vinyl material that is applied by heating the vinyl and molding it over medium-density fiberboard (MDF) or engineered wood. This creates cabinetry with a  smooth surface that more resistant to chipping than painted cabinet surfaces.

The Benefits of Thermofoil Cabinets

Simple detail and easy-care durability make thermofoil kitchen cabinets a popular choice for homeowners, both in the way they look and the way they last. Compared to painted or laminated kitchen cabinets, thermofoil cabinets offer a host of benefits, including:

Low Maintenance and Easy Cleaning

Think about how much time you spend cleaning your kitchen. That time can be shorted with thermofoil kitchen cabinet installation. Because the vinyl surface of these cabinets are incredibly resistant to stains and easy to wipe down, thermofoil cabinets do not require nearly as much maintenance as other kitchen cabinet options.

Moisture Resistant

One of the reasons why thermofoil cabinets are so popular in both kitchens and bathrooms is because of their excellent resistance to moisture, so you don’t have to worry about them warping. This is also a reason why thermofoil cabinets are popular in humid climates, such as Barbados. Keep in mind, while they are more moisture resistant than plain MDF or wood kitchen cabinets, they are not entirely waterproof.

Different Design and Color Options

Thermofoil cabinets are available in a wide range of color and design options. The vinyl surface of these cabinets may be molded into a variety of patterns and shapes, which allow you the choice of a basic flat cabinet or one with an appealing design, and you have the option of a matte or glossy finish. Thermofoil cabinets are typically available in a variety of colors as well, from basic white to shades that replicate the look of natural wood.


Perhaps the best part about thermofoil cabinets, especially for homeowners remodeling their kitchen on a budget, is their affordable cost. Typically, these types of kitchen cabinets cost roughly two-thirds less than traditional kitchen cabinetry. These kitchen cabinets offer an attractive and sturdy solution for homeowners who want to spruce up their kitchen without extending themselves financially.
