Laminate (TBA) - Your Choice Colour
Laminate (also known as Melamine), is an extremely durable material choice for your Doors, Drawer Fronts, Open Shelves and Panels. It is suitable for use in all areas of high humidity, such as kitchen, laundry and bathroom cabinetry, but is also extensively used for bedroom wardrobes, shelving, storage and garage cabinets, as well as domestic and commercial furniture applications.
It is heat and moisture resistant, and the improved durability (due to the 1mm thick ABS impact resistant edging around the outside edges), has enabled laminate to re-capture an increasing large market share over recent years. Combine this with its low cost (compared to vinyl wrap or poly paint options), makes this an ideal option for DIY’ers on a budget (without having to sacrifice durability or quality).
The face of this material is flat (non-profiled) making this material very easy to clean. Its plain and un-cluttered look, makes it a very popular choice for today's trend toward a more minimalistic cabinetry design.
This is the 'Your Choice' area for choosing a Laminate colour of your choice. Basically you source the colour that you would like, and then let us know what it is. We can then customise the quote for you based on this colour.
For example: After selecting the ‘Laminate (TBA) -Your Choice Colour’ material option, just put it in the Special Request box of the first item in your quote, for example: "All Your Choice colour to be Polytec Tessuto Milan -Ravine finish 16mm" (or whatever the colour happens to be).
The four keys things that we need are:
- Manufacturer's name (e.g. 'Polytec')
- Colour Name (e.g. 'Tessuto Milan')
- Finish Type (e.g. 'Ravine finish')
- Thickness (e.g. '16mm')
The 'All Your Choice colour' part of the special request, just means that you only have to enter this once, and this colour choice will apply (blanket cover) to all your 'Your Choice' Laminated cabinets and/or panels in your quote.
The thickness is typically 16mm but can also be 18mm (note: some colours are only available in 18mm).
The website prices are for a standard laminate colour upgrade. Once you submit the quote to us for validation, we will check the colour that you have chosen against the cost of the board, edge material, quantity of cabinets and panels that have been ordered, and adjust the quotation accordingly. You will need to enter the supplier's name (i.e. Laminex, Polytec) colour (i.e. Classic Beige, Malt) and finish (i.e. Natural, Gloss, Velour) in the 'Special Request' box.
