Maintenance Free Cabinet Doors

Wood is great but it has its place. When traditional kitchen cabinet boxes were originated, back in the day, they A) were all craftsman that 'had' to build their own structures and B) didn't have the technology we do today. Think fences and decks. You don't want to be restaining in 5-10 years. And that's typically what needs to be done with wood cabinet doors that can sometimes become wet or overheated.

Heat and moisture all affect wood and what's on that wood. The climate of a kitchen isn't really conducive to wood materials. Now, vinyl and laminates are made to withstand the heat and moisture of a kitchen. Whether you want faux wood, white, winter white, gray, black, blue green or any color you can imagine. Maintenance free is the way to go for kitchens. It will last just as long as it's wood counterpart, if not longer.

Actually, some form of white is chosen by over 50% of kitchen homeowners today. Maybe it's the brightness it offers, making rooms appear larger or that it is timeless.

Consider a maintenance free kitchen and you'll enjoy it for many years to come!

I had an induction cooktop on one kitchen and loved it for cooking responsiveness that rivaled gas and an easy-to-clean, one piece, glass surface.
