There are numerous kitchen cabinet materials available on the market. To make an informed choice, you’ll need to know what factors to consider, as well as the relative advantages of each option.
For a kitchen you’ll love day in and day out, it’s important to choose cabinet materials based on your lifestyle. Depending on the demands you anticipate placing on your kitchen, the vulnerability of certain materials to heat, water or scratching may make them inappropriate for use in your situation. For example, families might want to choose a material that’s durable and easy to maintain. Style is also an important consideration. Do you prefer the modern look of Similaque cabinets or a more classic look, like you’d achieve with opaque lacquer? Certain materials only come in a limited selection of colors and textures, so make sure you settle on one that you’ll appreciate for a long time to come. Last, don’t forget to choose a material that’s within your budget. Melamine, polymer and European laminate will all give you great value for your money. There are so many choices in kitchen cabinet materials that you’re sure to find one you like.
Kitchen cabinet materials can be divided into two main groups: natural materials, like solid wood and wood veneer, which add charm and come in unique and varied colors, and synthetic materials, including acrylic and Similaque, which are durable and easy to maintain.
Are you planning to renovate your kitchen in the near future? The trend this year is to use synthetic cabinet materials in natural shades of beige, grey-beige and taupe, often in two contrasting tones. For the more adventurous, kitchen materials in dark colors, like blacks, greys, and browns, are currently the most avant-garde choices on the market. Do you dare?
Regardless of what material you choose for the doors of your cabinets, you should be aware that the cabinet frames at Cuisines Verdun all offer the same advantages: ¾" thickness and very dense materials, featuring doweled or tongue-and-groove construction. Our cabinet frames not only offer superior quality, but are also customizable and made in Quebec.
