Environment Friendly & Sustainable Cabinet Materials

A huge benefit of custom cabinets is the vast array of finishes to chose from. As part of our mission to not only continually focus on providing our clients with choice and of course continual product improvement from a build quality perspective, we are actively sourcing cabinet materials which not only provide the vast selection of finishes clients are looking for, but which also come from manufacturers who value their part in being environmentally friendly/sustainable.

To this end we are delighted to now offer our clients Panolam TFL (Thermally Fused Laminate) for the construction of cabinet boxes who are FSC Certified, Rainforest Alliance Certified and Environment Preferable Product Certified. Panolam TFL can in turn be paired with any style & finish of cabinet door/front that you wish from a variety of real wood species (eg. maple, VG fir, walnut, etc) to paint grade finishes (any colour from the Sherwin Williams, Benjamin Moore or Cloverdale palette) to a multitude of high gloss acrylic or other engineered products. We have a sample kit in our office here in Squamish.

Of course if real wood is your preferred cabinet door material then we can create a custom stain of your choice or one that closely matches one of the Panolam TFL finishes (for the cabinet boxes) which is always a great way to balance finish, durability & budget.
If the more traditional plywood cabinet boxes is what you are after then we have that covered too … clear coat finished birch is the most popular, but again there are always options.

If you have any questions about deciding on a cabinet finish or figuring out the pros and cons of the many different cabinet styles / materials then don’t hesitate to give us a shout via our Contact Us Page.
