Design-Craft Cabinetry: Thermofoil Styles & Finishes

Thermofoil Styles

A rugged alternative to hardwood, thermofoil styles are made with a durable PVC overlay, which is fused with heat to natural wood fiberboard. The result is a surface that has a superior stain and scratch resistance and is super easy to clean.

Raised Panel: A slightly raised center panel is characteristic of this door style and may have additional profile detail commonly found in traditionally-styled rooms.

Flat Panel: the flat center panel door style typically has minimal ornamentation and is a versatile choice for traditional, transitional and contemporary decor themes.

Beaded: the distinctive look of the beaded door style has a vertically ridged center panel and adds a casual style detail to your home.

Slab: descriptive of its solid, flat surface, the slab door style has little to no detailing and is exemplary of modern aesthetics with clean lines.

Thermofoil Finishes

The thermofoil finish is created by fusing durable PVC to natural wood fiberboard with heat. The result is a surface that has superior stain and scratch resistance, and is a breeze to maintain with simple wiping.

Matte: a solid, soft and muted finish available in two neutral tones. (This finish is shown above with the Caledon door).

Woodgrain: woodgrain finishes provide a realistic-looking, durable alternative to hardwoods. (This finish is shown above with the Ridgecrest door).

Gloss: is often used for contemporary or urban designs. These high luster finishes are available in a wide variety of colors. (This finish is shown above with the Eaton door).

Accents: enhanced with glaze, select matte and woodgrain finishes highlight decorative features of a door style. (The above pictures feature the Ridgecrest and Lawrence Door Styles. Both have an accent called Carbo Accent).
