How are the Thermo-foil doors constructed?
Thermo-foil doors and drawer fronts are constructed from premium quality Medium Density Fiberboard, also known as 'MDF', sealed with a durable and hygienic vinyl ‘thermo-foil’. MDF has similar characteristic to hardwood, but can be profiled more precisely and is much more structurally stable. This makes it ideal for the intricate paneling found in these door styles.

How are the Shaker doors constructed?
Shaker style doors with a stained wood grain finish feature a 3" wide solid birch frame with a flat recessed center panel of birch veneer over Medium Density Fiberboard, also known as MDF. This makes the center panels more precise and provides a solid base for the hand selected natural wood veneers. Painted Shaker door styles are constructed entirely from solid MDF. This engineered wood material has similar characteristic to hardwood, but can be profiled more precisely and is much more structurally stable. This means there is less chance of door components moving, due to changes in temperature or humidity, which reduces the risk of cracks appearing in the durable painted finish.
