At The Door Maker (TDM), we pride ourselves on being the friendliest, most cost-effective, and easiest-to-use manufacturer for cabinet doors. Family-owned and operated, TDM is large enough to produce these cabinet doors in volume, but still small enough to provide dedicated personalized service.


TDM's cabinet doors are the next generation in kitchen décor; take, for instance, our thermofoil MDF cabinet doors faced with a durable PVC – a versatile, affordable, and architecturally-designed material that outperforms wood. Our products are environmentally sound, easy to install, and easy to maintain. As well, they are available in 3/4-inch thicknesses to match any kitchen. They can even have the appearance of painted wood or finely-stained natural grains in over 30,000 variations.


TDM is not just a supplier – we are the manufacturers of all of our products! All TDM products for your kitchen, including accessories, are manufactured using locally-sourced medium-density fibreboard (MDF), and components that are assembled on-site by skilled staff using the industry’s most advanced equipment. TDM imports PVC from the finest design and manufacturing companies in Europe.



With a solid ten-year warranty backed by over forty-five years of industry experience and a reputation for customer service, TDM is the natural choice for your next project!



TDM stocks over 150 of the latest colours available from our European designers and manufacturers. From our budget-friendly 12um Ontario White to the luxurious 20um high gloss colours, you can rely on TDM for fast delivery of your custom doors.


While cabinet doors are certainly essential items for any kitchen, the decorator in all of us knows that accessories make the room. TDM provides all components needed to complete a dream kitchen. From light valances to kick plates - if you can design it, we can make it in the largest array of colours available anywhere.


Ideal for both new builds and kitchen remodels, TDM’s custom thermofoil cabinet doors and accessories arrive completely finished and ready to install. Attention to detail is our calling card. The only way you’ll know they’re not real wood is by the money you’ll save!

The kitchen cabinet doors for your home couldn’t be in better hands throughout this process.

As a kitchen cabinet door manufacturer, we follow a careful process designed to bring you the highest possible quality products every time.


Thermofoil is a surface finish commonly applied to bathroom and to kitchen cabinet doors. It is a plastic (PVC) material, which is thermoformed to the profile of an underlying core of medium-density fibreboard (MDF).


When we apply thermofoil to our custom kitchen cabinet doors, the result can be a solid colour or imitation wood grain. The cabinet boxes that accompany these doors can be finished in various materials, such as matching thermofoil, coordinating paint, and laminates. Thermofoil is available in a range of textures and sheen levels, the most popular choice being solid white with a matte sheen.


Polyvinyl Chloride is a “thermoplastic” material, which has to do with the way the plastic responds to heat. Thermoplastic materials become liquid at their melting point. A highly useful attribute of thermoplastics is that they can be heated to their melting point, cooled, and reheated again without significant degradation.


The medium-density fibreboard is an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood and softwood residuals. These wood fibers are combined with a wax and or resin binder, and the resulting mulch is then pressed at a high temperature and pressure-formed into the panels that will be the basis of the cabinet doors in your home.


MDF custom kitchen cabinet doors are generally denser than wood products of a similar size and shape. Due to the nature of MDF manufacturing, they also do not contain knots, rings or other imperfections that natural woods or man-made wood products might suffer from.


Whatever design and size your kitchen cabinet doors may need, we can deliver. As kitchen cabinet door manufacturers, we will never alter your specifications to allow for PVC thickness. The PVC is between 9um (micrometers) and 20um thick, or .0000354 to .000787 inches thick. TDM uses a CNC machine to cut the doors within 1/10,000th of an inch. We then spray each door with a water-based, environmentally sensitive glue. The doors pass into the pressing area where they are placed onto our pin press, where the PVC is applied through extreme heat and pressure. The doors are then trimmed and wrapped, ready for the customer to pick them up and install them in their home.
