Using laminate in your kitchen design also allows for a huge range of options in colour and design. With the Laminex brand alone boasting over 200 variations in their Colour Palette. The Formica brand offer 8 different finishes from Gloss to Velvet as well as a multitude of colours. All these alternatives allow you to design your kitchen specifically to match the rest of your home décor.
Laminate is also a very cost effective choice when kitchen remodelling. When compared with most options such as solid timber, Vinyl Wrap and 2-Pack Polyurethane laminate is quite a bit cheaper. A great way of updating your kitchen on a very tight budget is to just replace your old cupboard doors with new laminate doors giving the space a fresh modern look.
Cleaning laminate is as easy as a quick wipe over with any all purpose household spray or just some soapy water. Laminate is resistant to stains and marks from food or cleaning products but always take care when using abrasive and caustic cleaning products. Mop up water that regularly builds up around sinks to prevent any long term seepage.
In our feature kitchen we have used 'Cream Flash' Laminate doors to accentuate the great splashback and 20mm CaesarStone 'Mink' benchtops and to keep the kitchen bright and give the illusion of space.
