What Are Acrylic Kitchen Cabinets Made of?
So what is acrylic? How and what is it made of? Acrylic is a kind of transparent thermoplastic homopolymer, which is more commonly known as “plexiglass“. It is a great material that engineers prefer as an alternative for glass, because of high-level impact resistance. The material is famous for submarine periscopes, airplane windows, and canopies.
Acrylic became a popular material for furniture in the last decades. Acrylic furniture is manufactured by coating MDF material with thin acrylic sheets. This way, we can have shiny and impact-resistant furniture. These features make acrylic a common and trendy choice for kitchen furniture and cabinets. As kitchen cabinets are;
- Densely used,
- Subject to moist, water, and damp,
- Also affected by direct sunlight;
acrylic is a great and durable choice for manufacturing them. But you should be very careful while cleaning because acrylic is a sensitive material against chemicals. As it is a petroleum-based material, you can harm the surface with strong chemicals or hard sponges and rags.
Trendy Acrylic Kitchen Cabinet Models
As acrylic is very popular for kitchen decoration lately, there are so many different cabinet models. You can either choose one model from a store, or you can order a special one for yourself. But don’t forget that the second choice will be more expensive. Generally, acrylic cabinets are a little bit more expensive than the other cabinet types. But when you consider the durability and fanciness of it, acrylic worth the money you spend.
Before deciding about the cabinet model, you should consider;
- the dimensions of your kitchen,
- what kind of a cabinet you need,
- the sunlight that your kitchen can get.
If you want a more glamorous and fancy kitchen, acrylic is a wonderful choice.
And if you have a wide kitchen, you can prefer kitchen island models. A kitchen island can make your kitchen more beautiful and practical. As acrylic is a fancy and modern style, kitchen island models will make your kitchen more luxurious. You can either choose classical colors or wooden acrylic models.
Color Choices for Acrylic Cabinets
If you don’t have a wider space, you should definitely go with the white color. As it is shiny and a good light reflector, white will show your kitchen wider than it is. Also, white color is a good color not collecting much dust. So, cleaning also will be easier. You can design your cabinet according to the spot you want to place and your needs. Especially, by placing a big cabinet into a corner will provide both a lot of space to use and a fresh view. You can also have assistance from designer companies for a great solution.
What about the colorful acrylic cabinets? If you prefer colored cabinets, it is possible to find all of the colors. But we should say that as acrylic is shiny and fancy, using glamorous colors will be assertive. And if you prefer an assertive color, you should definitely choose plainer colors and accessories in the rest of the decoration in order to put cabinets front. You can choose attractive lighter or darker shades of red, blue, or yellow. This way you will have a more alive and energetic kitchen decoration.
So, here we talked about the ideas of acrylic kitchen cabinet model trends. There are limitless color and model choices. You should consider your space, your needs, and create a kitchen decoration that you will enjoy. You can even choose two different contrast colors for a strong view. The minimalist decoration style is in a great harmony with acrylic cabinets. So you can combine them with wood or natural colored accessories.
