Melamine Cabinets$

Melamine is a particle board, otherwise known as “agglomerated”. This panel is hot-pressurized with a sheet of resin-impregnated paper. Colours and finishes can be used both vertically and horizontally, granting no material restrictions when designing the kitchen or any other project. When applying melamine to a panel, a laminate membrane in the form of an edge strip is glued to the sides of the melamine panel, allowing the desired color and finish on all available angles.

Polyester Cabinets $

Polyester is a mixture of melamine and polyester. The panel in the centre of the doors is made of melamine while the shutters are made of MDF (medium density fibres) covered with a polyester film. The 5 pieces shaker models and polyester finishes have a great resemblance to wood. Thus, it is possible to look for the appearance of wood at a lower price with polyester.
