Re-imagine Melamine with Today’s New Standards!!

By Kimberly Bricker & Andre Simoes, Marketing Department, GCW Custom Kitchens & Cabinetry Inc. Things have changed! When we think of melamine, many of us immediately relate it to a less durable, low-cost material that we may even try to avoid ... but what if we told you that many of the high-end builders are turning to melamine for massive projects in stunning high rises, lavish condos and new homes? This is because of the quality, durability, design options and cost effectiveness that melamine provides. It's time to re-imagine melamine with today’s new standards!! Melamine is a low pressured laminate, sister to high pressured plastic laminate, made using paper and resin, but the melamine costs less to produce – in-fact, as much as three times less. When applied vertically, there is little to no advantage to using plastic laminates! Even compared to painted cabinetry, melamine eliminates some of the manufacturing processes, lowering labour costs and creating a shorter timeline for your project to be completed! When it comes to design, melamine provides an array of stunning looks to choose from. It can be produced in a wide variety of colors & finishes. Acrylic finish laminates are highly durable and possess a reflective high gloss finish giving a high-end modern look. Acrylic finish laminates are moisture resistant and are highly impervious to fading. Melamine is offered in solid colours but currently the most popular choices include the wood grain options! They look like authentic wood
