If you’ve heard about WPC. However, with the evolution of modular kitchens, WPC kitchen cabinets are now the trend people are looking at. WPC, or polyvinyl chloride, is a widely produced polymer that finds widespread use in construction, healthcare, automobiles, and other sectors. You can use it to furnish your kitchen with pocket-friendly cabinets that are super easy to clean and maintain. Read on to find out what you can expect from this kitchen cabinet material.
If you still have your doubts about this product, we have a detailed guide on what you can expect.
WPC for Kitchens
Currently, the market opts for two kinds of WPC boards for the kitchen, that is, hollow boards and foam. The difference is simple, as the name suggests, the first one is hollow inside, thus being lightweight and economic. Whereas, WPC foam boards are thicker making it sturdier than hollow boards.
Characteristics of WPC Kitchens
We suggest foam boards for a sturdy kitchen as hollow boards are neither thermal resistant or fire-resistant. Foam boards are usually insulated against heat and are fairly fire-resistant. They are also non-toxic, anti-chemical and corrosion-resistant material giving you hygienic conditions to work in.
Design and Installation
The material for a WPC kitchen is available as ready-to-fit boards that don’t require finishing. Available in an array of colours, you don’t have to think about laminates or add-ons to make it look beautiful. Since they are lightweight, the workers can find it easy to work on. However, for WPC foam board, the right expertise is required as improper finishing can result in irreversible damage to the cabinet.
When it comes to the sturdiness, it is definitely the foam board you must buy as it can hold more weight compared to the other WPC variant. However, this is ideal for rented homes and is a small-term investment as the cabinets can sag over time and there is no resolution for damages.
