When it comes to updating the look of your kitchen, it doesn’t have to be expensive – in fact, simply replacing your cabinet doors can make the world of difference. There are a number of different materials you can choose from for your new doors, and a continually popular choice is melamine. Today, we’ll be taking a closer look at melamine cabinet doors.


What is melamine?

Melamine is made from resin soaked paper, which is then bonded onto particle board or MDF. The resin used in the construction of melamine doors make them highly durable and versatile, with a number of different colours and finishes.


Is melamine long lasting?

Looking for kitchen doors which can stand up to wear and tear? Melamine is a great option. Melamine is resistant to scratches and abrasions, as well as being able to handle high temperatures and resist moisture. This is all thanks to its strong construction, which also makes it resistant to fading over time so your cabinet doors continue to look their best.


Is melamine available in different colours?

One of the great things about melamine is that you have a range of options available when it comes to choosing the final look. Not only do you have a choice of numerous colours, you also have access to a variety of finishes, from high gloss to wood texture. No matter your personal style, you’ll have a melamine option to suit your kitchen.


Is melamine easy to care for?

Yes! One of the main benefits of melamine is that maintenance is easy thanks to it being hard wearing. All it takes is a soft cloth and warm, soapy water to keep your cabinets clean. Just make sure you avoid abrasive cleaners as they can damage the finish. As with most cabinet doors, you want to avoid moisture with melamine doors so wipe up any spills right away.


How do I find good quality melamine doors?

Not all melamine doors are the same and you need to find a product which not only fits your budget, but that is also of good quality and will last a long time. Look for products which are made using Australian materials and ensure that the underlying MDF is of high quality. Even the small details, such as the quality of the edging, is important. Don’t be shy about asking questions, all it takes is a quick phone call or email to find out more information.
