CUSTOM THERMOFOIL CABINET DOORS
Rigid thermofoil (RTF) cabinet doors are cost-effective, versatile and low maintenance. These qualities make them a favorite among homeowners looking to replace the cabinet doors in their homes.
Manufacturers create thermofoil doors with engineered wood, which makes them less expensive than the average solid wood cabinet door. RTF replacements come in a variety of colors and finishes, including satin colors that complement a room's existing aesthetic. When you need to clean them, you can wipe away spills without using harsh cleansing agents. Plus, at Cabinet Doors 'N' More, we customize each replacement door to your size specifications.

WHAT IS RIGID THERMOFOIL?
Rigid Thermofoil cabinet doors have a medium-density fiberboard (MDF) core. MDF is used because of its durability and ease to route out the cabinet doors patterns or style. RTF refers to the "vinyl" material that manufacturers use to apply to the MDF's surface. Manufacturers apply the thermofoil material to the MDF pattern and bond the pieces with heat and pressure. The bonding process is key to RTF's durability.
The thermofoils flexibility means it's compatible with flat, beveled or embossed cabinet door designs. It comes with a smooth finish and slightly textured surfaces, so you can match your replacement door to your existing cabinets. We also sell RTF cabinet drawer fronts and other accessories to match your replacement cabinet doors. These details can help you pull your kitchen, laundry room or bath together aesthetically. Some homeowners even choose to match replacement doors to cabinets throughout their entire home.
WHAT IS MEDIUM-DENSITY FIBERBOARD?
An MDF core is a composite of wooden fibers from hardwood, plywood, wax and resin, which acts as a bonding agent. MDF is an engineered wood, so it differs from natural wood in a few ways. Unlike solid wood, the wooden fibers in MDF are so small and broken down that it has no textures or blemishes left from its raw state. That means MDF is a smooth, uniform surface perfect for coating.
MDF has no natural grain, and its density makes it heavier than comparable objects made of solid wood. Whereas solid wood expands and contracts as environmental conditions change, MDF withstands temperature and humidity fluctuations. MDF's lack of grain means that it's less likely to sustain hairline cracks. MDF is also less likely to bow or warp over time.
