The clean lines of European cabinet design seem to be catching on in the U.S. The design style featuring laminate doors with either square or rounded edges, in a rainbow of trendy colors or patterns, is the polar-opposite of traditional American hardwood cabinet doors.
Year after year the National Kitchen & Bath Association recounts the most popular wood species for kitchen cabinetry, with miniscule movements between among the popular species: cherry, oak, alder and maple.
But this European design jettisons that, favoring instead glossy acrylic surfaces with a plasticized look: more Formica than fine woodwork.
Denver’s Premier Eurocase added a PUR laminating line for producing high gloss acrylic panels in a variety of colors in scratch-resistant acrylic material offers extreme resilience. While Premier Eurocase offers both fully laminated sheets or finished cabinetry and other furnishing components, neighboring General Casework is using a similar style approach in its just-launched kabin.net line.
