Have you ever walked into a kitchen or bathroom and taken immediate notice of the cabinets? Attractive looking cabinetry adds an extra touch of class and style to a space. Even more appealing is the fact that achieving this look is not as expensive as you might think. If the cabinet boxes are functional, replacing the doors and hardware (a process known as cabinet refacing) will typically save you both time and money. Granite and Trend Transformations is a leader in cabinet refacing using wood or an engineered wood called medium density fiberboard (MDF) with a rigid thermofoil (RTF) finish that prevents chipping, warping and looks absolutely fabulous.
To replace or not to replace your cabinets?
As pointed out above, not all cabinet renovations are alike. In situations where the box structures of the cabinets are in poor condition, then yes, it is necessary to invest the time and money in a complete replacement of your cabinets. If these structures are still strong and usable, however, change the word “replace” to “reface.” This is when new doors, drawers and hardware can be used to provide a wonderful new look without having to destroy the box structure. If you decide to go the route of cabinet refacing, you can breathe easy at how much time and money you will save versus a complete replacement.
Choices, choices, choices
Granite and Trend Transformations offer a wide selection of cabinet door styles to choose from. These selections are available in real wood, our exclusive Expressions Collection, or rigid thermofoil (RTF). You may think that wood is the obvious choice. But if RTF isn’t an option you are considering, it may be simply because you don’t know enough about it.
So, what’s the deal with RTF?
Here is some interesting news: Many consumers are quite enthusiastic about RTF cabinet refacing and are often requesting this material over wood. Here are some reasons as to why:
- Durable, rigid thermofoil (RTF) is a laminate which is seamlessly constructed with warp-resistant medium-density fiberboard (MDF).
- The final product is a surface that is smooth to the touch, won’t warp or crack, and will not need finishing. Oh, and it looks just like real wood.
- Rigid thermofoil is typically a more cost-effective option.
So, if you’re questioning the choice of RTF cabinets vs. wood, the points listed above strongly suggest you should consider RTF for cabinet refacing. Granite and Trend Transformations has you covered with the ABCs of RTF cabinetry. We are confident we can provide the best thermofoil cabinets for your kitchen or bathroom renovation.
