Polymer: The material of choice for your cabinet doors
When the time comes to start renovating your kitchen, you want to go for quality and durability.
Just like countertops, there is a wide range of materials for cabinet doors; we think of massive wood for its luxurious look, melamine for its affordability, but also polymer – our favorite material ?
Without further ado, discover the multiple advantages of polymer and why it is our material of choice at Eco Cuisine Design!
A durable option
Compared to the various types of materials available on the market, polymer is known for its resistance to many elements. Indeed, it resists well to scratches, fading caused by light, heat and humidity. This makes it the ideal material for bathrooms and laundry rooms which are more humid spaces.
Due to its quality and durability, polymer has a 10 to 12 year warranty depending on the model chosen. This differs from the warranties found for melamine, which are generally around a maximum of five years. An important advantage when the time comes to renovate!
A choice for the environment
Choosing polymer doors means doing something for the environment. In fact, our doors are made of MDF, an engineered wood product that maximizes the use of primary materials. In addition, the surface is made of various types of polymer, which contains recycled and recyclable materials.
Being very mindful of the environment and in order to offer the best to our customers, we have specifically chosen a local, carbon neutral supplier with a vision focused on ecology and zero waste for the manufacturing of the cabinet doors. The polymer is 100% recycled, and the production residues are baled and sent to a recycling center.
Colors and styles for today’s trends
In addition to being eco-friendly, high-end polymer represents a great selection of cabinet door colors. If you’re planning to renovate your room in the near future, it’s a good idea to keep an eye out for the latest color trends. Right now, we’re thinking about dark, rich tones like blue and black. This trend towards darker tones took its origins in the two-tone fashion.
In terms of style, Shaker doors are very popular. They are distinguished by a raised frame for a touch of depth.
With all the possibilities offered by polymer, which cabinet look will you choose?
