As you've probably already noticed, figuring out the best
type of material for your cabinets can be quite overwhelming.
Another material type on the list to choose from is laminate.
Probably the most attractive features when it comes to this
material is the fact that you can choose from such a wide
variety of colors, styles and designs. Most manufacturers
make a line of laminate cabinets so your selection will be vast.
Another perk to this material is that it is easy to clean and
will not be damaged by most household cleaning products.
It is durable and even your kids will have a difficult time
How are Laminate Cabinets Constructed?
In high quality cabinets, typically the
laminate is secured to the cabinet once the box has been
constructed. The cabinet box is typically made of plywood,
particle board, or fiberboard. The laminate itself is
similar to the material you would find on a laminate countertop
though for cabinets it is often thinner. It is created by
fusing plastic resin and paper together under pressure and heat.
Drawbacks of Laminate Cabinets
As with any type of cabinet material, there
are certain drawbacks when it comes to laminate. The first
is in the fact that laminate is essentially adhered to the wood
or particle board underneath. This means that it is
possible that it can peel or chip. This is unlike a
wood cabinet that is wood
throughout. Typically chips or peeling occur on the frame
edges or at the seem where the laminate was secured to the wood
underneath. Keep in mind that it is not the end of the
world should your cabinets peel or chip as you can repair them
for a minimal fee. Even better, if you have a cabinet that
