Are you looking to update or refresh your kitchen, but you’re on a budget? Then acrylic fitted kitchen cabinets could be the one for you.

If you’ve never heard of acrylic, you might be wondering what it is. In basic terms it’s a non toxic finish that gives a super smooth texture as well as a really high shine and clean finish. It comes in a huge range of colours and gives your kitchen that modern mirror like finish.
There are two different kinds of cabinets, solid acrylic and acrylic covered. Solid acrylic doors are more expensive, however they can have a richer and more solid colour pay off than their counterpart.
