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).

Design-Craft Cabinetry: Premium Veneer Styles

Design-Craft offers different ways of making your cabinets uniquely yours. Having a Premium Veneer Style is a way to do this. Premium hardwood veneer styles offer uniqueness in color and pattern, creating an exotic feel to your room.

Quartersawn Figured: Premium cut veneers, such as the simple grain patterns of anigre or the sharp contrasts of black walnut, display beautiful character and natural figuring of the wood.

Reconstituted: Aesthetically combined layers of veneer are joined to form a uniform gran with high contrasting colors found in Rosewood to Zebrawood.

All Their Own: These highly desirable veneers boast unique irregular patterns and contrast, offering a unique, specialized look to your decor.

Kerri of Cabinets Extraordinaire likes the look of Red Gum Veneer along with the Rosewood Veneer. They both have a classic look to them, but still unique.

Design-Craft Cabinetry: Organization

Organize. Do More With More Space. Tailor your family’s unique storage needs with creative cabinet options.

Store: get savvy storage with a base cabinet pull-out with hidden shelves. The full-height door cleverly disguises two extra drawers for a cleaner “less is more” appearance.
Organize: no more digging into the dark interior of a corner base cabinet – these inspired corner base shelves with non-skid shelves easily rotate out for instant access.
Accessorize: sometimes it’s the simple accessories that provide the most pay-off. Large items such as, cookie sheets, muffin tins and pizza stones are easily found with a tray divider base with adjustable partitions.

Design-Craft has created an array of different items that you can have in your kitchen to help you with storage, organization and accessorizing. We are excited to share some of them with you:
