What is a Vinyl Wrap Door?
A vinyl wrap door is one where the door is made up of an MDF panel that has been cut, routed and profiled as desired and then glued and covered with a vinyl form that is pressed to the door using heat and vacuum. The back of the door is usually pre-laminated. Vinyl wrapped doors have no joints as the vinyl goes all the way around the door.
Vinyl Wrap Doors are Versatile and Attractive
One of the biggest benefits of vinyl wrap doors is the fact that they are so versatile. The MDF panels that the vinyl is attached to can be designed to a number of profiles, from simple flat doors through to doors with ornamental routing. The vinyl itself comes in a large range of colours including solid and wood grain colours and the finish can be smooth, textured or even gloss. In some cases, you’d have trouble telling a vinyl wrap door apart from a polyurethane door! What this means is that you can choose a vinyl wrap door to suit any style kitchen and in any colour that you want, practically.
Vinyl Wrap Doors are Durable and Low Maintenance
Another reason why viny wrap doors are such a great choice for the kitchen is the fact that they are both durable and low maintenance, which is what you want of any materials that you use in such a high traffic area. Vinyl wrap doors are scratch resistant, and they won’t chip. As well, they also seal out moisture, so you don’t have to worry about the doors warping or swelling. Vinyl wrap doors also need nearly no maintenance at all – just wipe them clean and check the hinges occasionally. They never need to be repainted or anything like that.
Vinyl Wrap Doors are Easy to Clean
Another benefit of vinyl wrap doors is the fact that they are so easy to clean. All you need to do is to give them a wipe with a soft sponge and some soapy water, and then dry them off afterwards. There is no need to use heavy or harsh cleaners at all – in fact, doing so may actually damage the door! If you have stubborn stains or marks that won’t come off with the soapy water, just gently wipe these off using methylated spirits.
