Signs It’s Time to Update Your Kitchen Cabinets
Some signs of kitchen cabinets that need an update are more obvious than others. If you notice any of these signs, then you may want to consider investing in a high-quality kitchen cabinet wrap.

Outdated Appearance
One of the most common causes for a kitchen remodel is outdated appearance. If your cabinets are stuck in the 90s, then it may be time to seek out a more modern style.

Chips, Cracks, or Other Signs of Wear
Children, pets, and years of use can all wreak havoc on your kitchen cabinets. Surfaces that show signs of wear and tear such as dents, chipped paint, and scratches, can benefit from an update.

Mold Damage
If you notice any signs of mold or water damage in or around your cabinets, then you will need to address these issues promptly. If you catch this problem early enough, you may be able to get rid of the mold and freshen up the surface with a wrap. However, if the mold damage is significant, then you may need to completely replace your cabinets.

Desire for a Change
One great reason for updating your kitchen cabinets is simply wanting a new look! If you are itching to change things up, then updating your kitchen cabinets is a great idea. There are several different types of kitchen cabinets for you to choose from, and most of them are completely customizable.

Increased Home Value
If you are planning on selling your house now or in the future, then updating the cabinets is a wise investment. According to Consumer Reports, kitchen updates can bump your home’s sale price by three to seven percent.

What Are Cabinet Wraps?
Cabinet wraps are a type of covering or material that is applied to the exterior surfaces of cabinets to give them a more updated look. These wraps are often used as a cost-effective way to update your cabinets without completely replacing them. Common types of cabinet wraps include:

Vinyl Wrap
Thermofoil wrap
Peel-and-stick wrap
DIY wrap
While all of these cabinet wraps can work well, Thermofoil is arguably the best option.

 

Cabinet Refacing

Thermofoil Wrap: What You Need to Know
Despite the word “foil” in the name, Thermofoil does not contain any metal. Thermofoil is a type of vinyl film that is heated and then molded over cabinet surfaces. Thermofoil cabinets come in a wide variety of
colors, finishes, and styles, so you can customize them to fit your specific style needs.

These are a few benefits of Thermofoil cabinets.

Easy to Clean
Thermofoil kitchen cabinet wrap is incredibly low maintenance. The smooth vinyl surface of Thermofoil cabinets ensures that they can quickly and easily be wiped down with a damp cloth. The cabinets also resist the buildup of dust and are moisture-resistant, which means they will never stain.

Cost-Effective
If you are looking for an affordable alternative to solid wood or veneer cabinets, then Thermofoil is the material for you. Refacing your cabinets with Thermofoil kitchen wrap often costs less than $1,000, which is very low for a kitchen remodel.

Easy Installation
Thermofoil kitchen cabinet wrap can be applied quickly and efficiently by trained professionals. A complete cabinet remodel can last days and produce bags full of debris. Instead of being unable to use your kitchen for days, opt for a quick Thermofoil wrap installation.

Endless Color Options
When you choose Thermofoil, you are not limited to certain colors. There are countless options when it comes to colors, finishes, and styles. No matter what you are looking for, Thermofoil can make it happen. You can also choose a Thermofoil wrap that mimics the look of wood, eliminating the hassle and cost of replacing your cabinets with actual wood.

Long-Lasting
Thermofoil cabinets are known for being able to withstand years of use. As long as you take good care of your cabinets, you can expect them to last 15 years or more. Thermofoil cabinets, unlike solid wood, are resistant to warping. This means that you do not need to worry about your cabinets being exposed to high humidity levels (which is very common in kitchens). The technology used for Thermofoil has greatly improved over the past few years, and the cabinets are stronger and more durable than ever.

Kitchen Cabinet Wrap FAQs
Before committing to kitchen cabinet wrap, it is important to know what you are getting yourself into. Here are a few common kitchen cabinets wrapping FAQs.

How Long Does Kitchen Cabinet Wrap Last?
Regular vinyl wrap typically lasts around 10 years, while Thermofoil wrap often lasts over 15 years.

How Much Does Kitchen Cabinet Wrap Cost?
