When you’re refacing your kitchen cabinets or doing an entire renovation one of the most time-consuming decisions is the style and finish of your cabinets. And why shouldn’t it be; it’s a huge decision. It’s what makes up the overall look and holds your kitchen storage space.
Slab-style cabinets and drawers are perfect for a modern and minimalist kitchen or bathroom. With the right finish and decorative hardware, they can be seen in transitional spaces as well. If you are planning or already have attention-grabbing features in your kitchen like granite counters or a bathroom tile that demands attention you don’t need uncomplicated cabinets
What is a Slab Door?
A slab door is a sleek, one-piece solid door with no frame or panel. Classically, the slab door is referred to as “European Style of cabinetry”. This style is useful because lines are flush and therefore emphasizes maximizing space. CabinetNow offers a variety of wood styles and Thermofoil options each with a range of colors to choose from.
Materials, Finishes and Styles
When we talk about slab cabinets or drawers, there are several distinct differences. On CabinetNow choices include solid wood and rigid thermofoil. These can be combined with a variety of finishes such as paint, clear- coated, and various other choices with RTF. The style of the finished product can range from rustic to ultramodern.
Rigid Thermofoil ( RTF)
