Which laminate is best for kitchen cabinets?
Laminates are widely preferred for both modular and conventional (carpentered) kitchens – they are categorised as high-pressure laminates, used on plywood, and low-pressure laminates that are used on MDF or particle board.
Here is a comprehensive guide on the kinds of laminates out there.
1.Matt finish laminate
Matt-finish laminates bring a look of functionality and quiet elegance to a kitchen space.
2. Gloss finish laminate
A glossy laminate finish has an attractive mirror-like sheen. It imparts a luxurious look to the kitchen and adds brightness to the space because of its ability to reflect a bit of light.
Gloss-finish laminates are susceptible to scratches and need regular cleaning because they show smudges and fingerprints easily.
3. Textured laminate
An easy way to subtly bring in a sense of depth into a monochromatic kitchen is with textured laminate. Textures that simulate the feel and appearance of elements like solid wood are most appropriate for kitchens.
4. Solid colour laminate
You can introduce multi-coloured laminates to add vibrancy and a zing to the kitchen space. How? Combine two different colours on kitchen drawers and cabinets.
What is the best way to clean laminate kitchen cabinets?
Wipe With Soap or Cleaner
Too much water exposure can damage the laminate, so avoid using a soaking-wet cloth. A water-based all-purpose cleaner is generally safe to use on laminate cabinets if you need a little more power than plain water. You can also use liquid hand soap or dish detergent to clean the surfaces.
