Melamine Cabinets$

Melamine is a panel made up of particles, otherwise known as “chipboard”. This panel is hot pressurized with a sheet of paper loaded with resin. Colours and finishes can be used vertically, when designing the kitchen or any other project. When applying melamine to a panel, a PVC membrane is glued to the sides of the melamine panel through edge banding, thus allowing the desired colour and finish to be on all available angles.

  • Vulnerable to scratches

Polyester Cabinets $

Polyester melamine cabinets are a blend of melamine and polyester. The center panel of the doors is made of melamine while the casements are made of MDF (medium density fibreboard) covered with a polyester film. The 5-piece shaker models and polyester finishes feature a great resemblance to wood. So, it is possible to have the appearance of wood at a lower price with polyester.
