In the past, laminate cabinetry has had a bad reputation, and with good reason: it used to be an inferior product. But today’s modern laminate kitchen cabinets are one of the best options for modern kitchens due to their durability.  

They’re arguably even more sleek and stylish than wooden cabinetry, providing homeowners with countless options in terms of colour, style, and design.

This type of cabinetry is constructed using a man-made synthetic film of material that is bonded to the outer surface of the cabinet door.

From gloss and low gloss to matte, homeowners have a plethora of options, making it possible for you to build the kitchen you have always dreamed of.


An Attractive Option for Your Space

Wood cabinets are the first consideration for many because wood is a timeless go-to. Innovative designs have led to a number of developments for laminated cabinetry, however, with many cabinet manufacturers now being able to create laminated cabinets that are nearly impossible to distinguish from actual wood.

Another bonus to choosing laminate is that the colour is less likely to fade from exposure to UV rays. The cabinets also easily hold a uniform stain colour, so each cabinet looks the same with no unsightly variation in appearance.


A Quality Investment for Any Kitchen

One of the reasons why laminate kitchen cabinetry is so popular is that it is affordable. It is the most budget-friendly cabinetry material available on the market.

But it isn’t only the initial cost that makes laminated cabinets an easy choice. When properly maintained, your laminated kitchen cabinets will withstand the test of time. High-pressure laminate is particularly tough, difficult to dent, and hard to scratch, making it a top choice for families with little ones and pets.


Care Tips for Laminate Cabinets

The slick and hard surface of a laminate cabinet means that it is easy to clean with a damp cloth. Unlike other cabinet types, spills, grime, and dirt cannot penetrate this material.

With that said, proper care and maintenance will keep your cabinets looking better for longer. Here are some tips for properly caring for laminate cabinetry.


  • Try to keep cabinets away from humidity and moisture. This goes for any type of cabinet you install in your home.
  • Wipe cabinets with warm soapy water. Dry the cabinets after each wipe.
  • Don’t use abrasive cleaners or pads on your cabinets. A soft brush is all you should need.
