The Door Maker is the largest on-line e-commerce manufacturer of thermofoil cabinet doors in Canada with shipping available all across Canada and the US. All of our doors go through a rigorous quality control process to guarantee a high-grade product that is made to last for years without fading, scratching, peeling or losing its aesthetic appeal. We at The Door Maker know our product very well and stand behind the quality of our PVC cabinet doors. 


What Is Thermofoil?

Thermofoil is a material made of polyvinyl chloride (PVC). It is a thin layer of white, coloured or faux wood grain plastic coating applied to the surface of an MDF door. It is a commonly used material for cabinet doors and drawer fronts for reasons such as durability and uniformity of appearance. The PVC becomes malleable at 120 degrees. A highly useful attribute of thermofoil is that it can be heated to its melting point, cooled, and reheated again without significant degradation. 

While cabinet doors are certainly essential items for any kitchen, the decorator in all of us knows that accessories make the room. TDM provides all components needed to complete a dream kitchen. From light valances to kick plates - if you can design it, we can make it in the largest array of colours available anywhere.

As a kitchen cabinet door manufacturer, we follow a careful process designed to bring you the highest possible quality products every time. 


How Are Thermofoil Cabinet Doors Made?

PVC coating is applied to a prefinished MDF door using heat, pressure and adhesive (thermofoil). All our thermofoil cabinet doors are custom-made according to your measurements and specifications. When we apply PVC to our custom kitchen cabinet doors, the result can be a solid colour or imitation wood grain. The cabinet boxes that accompany these doors can be finished in various materials, such as matching melamine, coordinating paint, and laminates. Thermofoil is available in a range of textures and sheen levels, the most popular choice being solid white with a matte sheen.

Thermofoil kitchen doors are optimal for both MDF and wood cabinets, thanks to their uniform appearance and protection against common kitchen staining.

How To Install Themofoil Cabinet Doors?

DIY cabinet door installation is an easy process that anyone can master. Before you get to the installation, ensure you have the required tooling, such as a power drill with an assortment of drill bits, a screwdriver, a pencil, new hinges, and the new cabinet doors. You can install new hinges, or you are welcome to reuse the old ones if they are mechanically sound. All you need to do to get started with your cabinet doors installation is to mount new hinges on the cabinets and the cabinet doors. Once the hinges are screwed in and aligned with the hinge back plate on the cabinet, snap the back hook into place and voila! - your kitchen is now transformed.
