Which Style Suits Your Taste? Kitchen Shutters Edition.

Looking to breathe new life into your kitchens? Can’t decide what could fit well and look good in your kitchen layout? Take a look at these different cabinet shutters to find the perfect match!

1. Laminate Shutters 

Laminate shutters are a popular choice for kitchen cabinets. They are not only easy to maintain, but also resistant to fingerprints and scratches and are budget-friendly! The ideal choice for busy kitchens prone to wear and tear.

They’re available in various finishes ranging from matt to high gloss and in a plethora of colors. You can even find textures that mimic natural wood grain, stones, bricks, etc. 

The range of options guarantee that you’ll find something that works for any design style, from coastal, traditional and modern to glam and contemporary.

2. PVC Foil Shutters

PVC foil shutters are wrapped in a thin layer of polyvinyl chloride film, making them resistant to water and easy to clean. These are a great choice for kitchen cabinets prone to moisture, such as those near a sink or dishwasher, and are pocket-friendly too.

3. PVC Membrane shutters

While similar to PVC foil, the PVC layer here is thicker and more durable, while being available in a greater variety of colors. Membrane shutters work well for kitchens that need a more durable finish, such as those in high-traffic areas. With the moulding-like design, these shutter add a traditional touch to any kitchen.

4. UV Lacquer Shutters

UV lacquer shutters are coated with a clear, high gloss finish that is cured with ultraviolet light. This in turn creates a very scratch-resistant and durable finish. These shutters are the perfect option for any kitchen that needs a high-end look and feel!

5. PU Gloss Finish Shutters


While similar to UV lacquer shutters, instead use a polyurethane-based finish. This makes the finish slightly less durable than UV lacquer but still highly resistant to scratches. A splendid choice for kitchens that need a hardwearing and high-gloss finish, but at a slightly lower price.

6. Acrylic Gloss Finish Shutters

Acrylic gloss shutters are made with high-quality acrylic coating that provides a deep shine and excellent durability. These shutters are a good aesthetic choice for contemporary or glam kitchen design.

7. Back Painted Glass Shutters

Back painted glass shutters offer the most sleek, modern look. The glass is essentially painted on the back side, protecting the colour from scratches and fading while being hygienic and easy to clean. This is another great option for small kitchens, as they reflect light and make the space feel larger.

8. Veneer Finish Shutters

Veneer finish shutters are made with a thin layer of real wood that is applied to a core material like MDF. They offer the beauty of natural wood at a far lower cost. This shutter style works well with moisture as well, as it is far more resistant to warping than solid wood shutters. They are the perfect choice for Japandi, biophilic or rustic kitchen on a budget!
