White Cabinetry Thermofoil vs Painted
I have had my heart set on a white kitchen for so long. The thought of not getting the white really bothers me, it isn't something I plan on being flexible about.
We were at the cabinet store and the cabinets they recommended for us were all thermofoil. When I inquired about painted finish instead we were told we could go with Dura Supreme Alectra, but that they would be much more expensive.
I had also been looking into the Ikea cabinets but their white are all thermofoil also.
I'm looking for affordable cabinets that are easy to maintain, can be wiped clean, and last a long long time. The thermofoil we looked at seemed so cheapy but were very small cabinet samples. (Merillat)
What is your opinion on painted vs thermofoil?
