"What kind of doors can I get on metal cabinets" is a question we get asked a lot! So we thought we would dedicate today's blogpost to describing the different options you have to choose from when you choose our beautiful non-toxic aluminum cabinets for your indoor or outdoor kitchen.
POWDER-COATING (AVAILABLE IN HUNDREDS OF COLOURS)
Our most popular door is this simple, clean, minimalist door style with a sleek thin edge profile detail and a textured powder-coated finish, available in hundreds of colours. Our colours are determined by the RAL European color matching system. This is especially useful when trying to match your cabinetry to other components of your design, such as coloured appliances. This standard will also come in handy if you've purchased an indoor kitchen from us and then you want to match your outdoor kitchen cabinets (or vice versa). The colour will be based on this standard which has been around for decades and won't vary. The majority of the finishes we offer have a beautiful textured finish which warms up the "feel" of the metal and adds an extra layer of durability. You can really have fun with the colouring of your cabinetry, choosing a complimentary colour for the trim of your doors to make it a dual-tone door, or switching up the toe kick colour or even adding a wild colour inside your cabinetry for that unexpected pop! This is one of our favourite parts of cabinet design, call us today to discuss your upcoming project!
SLAT DOOR (SHIPLAP STYLE)
Another style of door that some people love is our slat door. This is similar to the shiplap idea that you see with wood planks. This can be made with the same textured powder-coat finish or even the "wood-like" finish that we will be describing in a minute. Depending on the design of your cabinetry we can run the slats vertically or horizontally on your doors. This style door can also be used in combination with the minimalist door described above. All of our door styles have the same edge profile, so all of the styles can work with one another to create a truly unique space for you and your home.
STONE DOORS (NEOLITH INLAY)
This is a very interesting look. Stone finishes are so gorgeous and the beauty is somewhat missed when only used horizontally on your countertops. In luxe kitchen design you are seeing a lot of full-slab/no-seam stone backsplash and countertop waterfalls on the ends of exposed cabinetry so you can really appreciate the detail of the stone. Now, with our cabinetry you can incorporate the stone finish right into the Kitchen cabinet doors.
Last but certainly not least, we love our "Wood" doors! The warm look of wood is still possible when choosing metal cabinetry for your kitchen! Above are a few of the most popular "wood-like" finishes we offer. The Cedar look (picture at left) is the most popular for outdoor kitchens. The wood print is transferred to the aluminum using a process called sublimation, where dyes are infused onto the metal via heat transfer. It's a fascinating process and can be applied not only to the face of the door but wrapped along the edges as well!
Now that we have shown you the 4 categories of doors we offer, we are really curious which one (or combination) is your favourite? What would you imagine for your dream kitchen, indoor or outdoor?
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about aluminum cabinetry! It really is changing the way you think about kitchens!
Make it a happy and healthy day!
