When you are thinking of remodeling your kitchen you have many choices ahead of you. One of the choices is going to be whether you want wood cabinetry or laminate cabinetry. In recent years you may have dismissed the thought of laminate cabinetry immediately, but today the laminate cabinets not only look amazing they are durable as well.
While your choice may have been cosmetic based, and you think the laminate cabinets will simply look nicer in your new kitchen, they are also efficient. Laminate cabinets tend to be easier to clean than standard wood cabinetry. They are also more durable than wood cabinets and show less scratches.
One of the great features of laminate cabinetry is that it comes in a variety. There are different types of laminate cabinets that range in durability and price. One of the types of laminate is Low-pressure laminates. This type of laminate has a propensity to chip and crack with low quality construction materials. There are also high-pressure laminates. High pressure laminates work better on kitchen cabinetry than low-pressure laminates. This of course tends to drive up the price if this is the type of laminate the cabinet manufacturers are using.
Resin-impregnated, vinyl films, and hot-stamped transfer foils are also different types of laminate that is used in the construction of cabinetry. As you are shopping for your kitchen cabinets, it is good to know a little bit about the materials you may or may not be purchasing. You want to make sure you get the best quality cabinetry for your money.
Not only are you getting a quality product with laminate cabinets, but you also have still more options with the aesthetics. Years ago laminate cabinets meant a small assortment of colors, textures, and finishes. Today you can a majority of colors, and you can even get laminate cabinetry that has a wood grain finish. You can also choose from different textures, glossy finish, or certain patterns. Your kitchen will be durable and beautiful.
