Kitchen cabinet doors do most of the heavy lifting when it comes to the appearance and usability of the kitchen. They are one of the first things you see when entering the kitchen and one of the first things to take any punishment such as spills or wear and tear from children and pets. Therefore, the material chosen for your kitchen cabinet doors is extremely important in maintaining its appearance. Here are a few of the benefits of using laminate as the primary material for the cabinet doors in your kitchen.

Laminate is a synthetic material made of compressed wood, wood particles and melamine with a thin outer layer that usually contains design elements such as color and texture. Laminate offers quite a few advantages over other cabinet materials such as solid wood or stainless steel for example it is generally more cost effective and extremely customizable, coming in nearly any texture and color you can think of. Laminate is also extremely moisture resistant and tends not to expand and contract with temperature changes.

Solid wood by comparison is more likely to bend and warp when exposed to excessive moisture or rapid temperature changes. Laminate also holds up well to everyday wear and tear, being extremely dent and scratch resistant, it is also extremely easy to clean and can be wiped off with just a little bit of water and cleaning product. Stainless Steel by comparison will show scratches, dents and fingerprints very easily and only really comes in one color and style.
