Door Finishes

Solid Wood and Bamboo

If you choose wood, will you go for solid wood or wood veneer? The veneer is cheaper and is more durable to weather conditions. Whilst the humidity and temperature outside have an effect on your solid wooden kitchen doors, the biggest influence comes from the changes in temperature and humidity derived from your kitchen activities. 

Wood itself is available in various colours, but it can also be glossed, painted, colour washed or waxed to give it the finish you prefer.

Veneer Finish

This is a door made of thin layers of real wood applied in leaves over a particle board door, providing uniformity and even colour distribution. Veneer is a more economical alternative to real wood but without the compromise of colour changes.

Melamine / Laminate 
      

Laminate cupboard doors have numerous possibilities in colour, texture and sheen. You can opt for a soft look with creamy colours and a matt finish. Alternatively, to make a statement, select the Italian elegance with glimmering fronts, bold colours, modern handles and other stylish finishes to compliment this theme. 
A great advantage of laminate cupboards is that they are virtually maintenance-free. Laminate only needs the occasional wipe to keep it its lustre and maintain its condition.  

MDF Supawood

A versatile product with many options for shaping doors into different profiles and edging, allowing for manufacture of contemporary, colourful and funky modern units. Although the board itself is inexpensive, the type of finish selected will influence the expense to the end product.

Granite

Granite articulates style & quality. It is the most common type of stone used for countertops. Granite is quarried worldwide, with colours and patterns that reveal the region and geological conditions where it originates from. Each slab is unique, with random and inconsistent patterns boasting its natural impressive character and distinction. It is highly durable, it doesn't scratch or burn and it retains its colour. Whilst Granite is an expensive material, the finished appearance is often well worth the investment.
Costing Granite : The general rule for granite pricing is that the lighter the colour of the granite – the more expensive it will be per square meter. Rustenburg granite (black) is your most affordable colour.

Glass, stainless steel and aluminium as an addition  

Glass is an ideal material for brightening rooms or kitchens comprising of wood or dark cabinets. Glass is often used on door panels, usually in conjunction with other materials, such as aluminium frames, to break up the uniformity, reflects light and adds creative flair. 

Clear glass is an appropriate choice for displaying ornamental pieces, but can highlight dust and fingerprints. An alternative solution would be to select frosted glass which will reduce cleaning and hide the contents of the unit.
