Steps to wrapping grooved kitchen doors with a square edge
This method won’t be suitable for kitchen doors with tapered edges
Step 1. Measure the door
Step 2. Cut vinyl to size
Some easy maths here take your door size and add 100mm to the width and 100mm to the height.
example. door size 715mm x 515mm = 815mm x 615mm
What type of vinyl wrap material to use
The market is full of wrap material that will be suitable for this step. You can find a list of vinyl types that we have seen used on kitchen wrapping here at https://modernds.co.uk/how-long-does-a-kitchen-wraps-last/
Step 3. Order 2mm ACM board to size
Use the size from step 1 for this. It is important you get this step correct if your size is wrong then it will cause issues when wrapping or even make the door unable to be fitted back on.
What is ACM?
ACM ( Aluminium Composite Material) is a 3 layer lightweight panel. If you want to find out more about ACM board then check out curbellplastic blog
Where can I order this
I would recommend finding a local supplier of ACM board or visit your nearest sign shop
Step 4. Make Door Flat
Bond the ACM Board to the kitchen door face.
How to bond the board onto the door
Using grab adhesive. Starting around 50mm in from the edge run a bead around the full door with an x shape on the center.
What type of adhesive should I get?
Stick like Sh*t is our go-to for bonding but you can find others online. If you want to just go with the same adhesive as us then you can order it today from screw fix for less than £10 https://www.screwfix.com/p/evo-stik-sticks-like-sh-t-adhesive-290ml/22070 A full tube of this stuff will do around 15 kitchen doors
Step 5. Wrap it
ACM board has a black rubber core so the face might be a lovely colour but to avoid the unsightly edge you need to wrap the full board making sure to wrap around the back to tidy up the door edges
