Why Custom Laminate Cabinets Are a Great Choice

1 June 2018

It’s exciting when you decide that the time has finally come to update your daggy cabinets and install something a little newer. When it comes to finishes for your cabinets, you have a few options and one of the most popular choices is custom laminate cabinets. If you’re having flashbacks to horrible 70s laminate cabinets, don’t worry – modern laminate is a whole different world and there are a number of advantages to using this material.


Easy to clean

Any surface which is easy to clean is a bonus in the kitchen. Laminate has a reputation of being easy from a maintenance perspective – all you need to do is wipe it down with a damp cloth and mild detergent and you’re ready to go.


Cost effective

Updating your kitchen on a budget can be difficult – you want your new space to look amazing but you can’t completely blow the budget. Luckily, laminate is a cost effective option which also looks great. Love the wood look but can’t afford it? Most laminate cabinets are available in a wood-look finish.


Fit with different styles

It can be difficult to get the right look for your cabinets when you want the space to look new and modern, while also fitting with the rest of the house. Laminate has the advantage of coming in a range of colours and finishes so it’s easy to find a style which suits you and your lifestyle.


Durable and long lasting

It’s all about durability with kitchen cabinets and the last thing you want is a finish which starts looking shabby after only a short time. However, good quality laminate is very durable and truly made to stand the test of time. If you choose a coloured laminate finish, it also won’t fade over time. It’s also pretty difficult to dent and scratch laminate, which is a very good thing!


Easy to install

If you choose a flat pack option for your laminate cabinets, it’s understandable that you want them to be easy to install. If you choose high quality laminate, you’ll find that they won’t chip or crack which makes them very forgiving when being installed by the DIY home renovator.
