Types of Kitchen Cabinet Doors: Polyurethane Kitchen Cabinet DoorsLearn about the different kitchen cabinet doors options available to you
Now, I want to show you guys my final door, which is, guessed it? Polyurethane. Now, if I were to put these doors side by side, guys, I’m telling you, you can’t really tell the difference, okay.
Look, I know on the camera you go, “No, one’s a different shade of white,” and now guys, that’s colour. All right. Like I said, these can come in a variety of different colours, all right. So, if I were to get a Polyurethane and a Thermolaminate door in exactly the same colour and put it side by side, I doubt you’d tell the difference unless you start touching it.
What is Polyurethane?
Polyurethane is paint. It’s a paint finished door. No, there’s not guys getting rollers and rolling paint on the door. It’s actually a little bit more labour intensive than that.
What it is, is your MDF board, they sand it to ensure it’s nice and flat. They put the first coat of priming on it. Then, they probably sand it again to make sure again, it’s nice and flat, and they spray paint it. They spray the face and the edges on it to make it look really, really nice, and beautiful. Okay.
Once this door’s done, if you were to touch it, it is… well, I think it is… I think it feels a lot smoother than Thermolaminate, but guys, not sure about you, but how often do you stroke your doors once they’re on? I… yeah… okay. So, once it’s on, it looks like… it looks like that, okay. So, that’s that. Okay.
What is the cost of Polyurethane Kitchen Doors?
In terms of cost, Polyurethane, in the Australian market, in theory, should be the most… it’s a premium. I consider it a premium door because of the time it takes to actually manufacture it. All right. So, it’s not the material which costs a lot. It’s actually the time it takes to actually manufacture these doors. That’s where the cost goes, and that’s why the Thermolaminate doors usually are a little bit more cost friendly compared to Polyurethane, okay. So, that’s that.
