Pros & Cons of Laminate Cabinets

Pros & Cons of Laminate Cabinets When you’re in the process of upgrading your kitchen’s cabinetry, it’s important to consider which material is going to be the right choice for you. Laminate cabinets are often popular among homeowners, as they are available in a variety of colors and can be found in matte, granular, and glossy textures. Let our team at Tundraland break down their pros and cons before you decide whether or not they’re right for your home:

Pro: Laminate Cabinets Are Affordable

If you’re looking for a cost-effective material for your new cabinets, it’s going to be hard to beat laminate. Laminate cabinets are composed of layers of paper and plastic resins bonded to plywood or particleboard, and they provide a look that can mimic that of wood at a far less expensive cost.

Con: Laminate Cabinets Are Not Crack-Proof

As important as it is for you to find cabinets that fit your budget while still looking great, durability is another key to your cabinetry upgrade. Laminate is largely resistant to damage, though it’s not impervious to cracks and cuts. And if your laminate cabinets are deeply cut or cracked, a repair won’t be possible.

Pro: Laminate Cabinets Are Otherwise Very Durable

While laminate cabinets aren’t resistant to cuts and cracks, they do usually avoid getting nicked and stained. That can be especially important if you have kids or pets around your house. And perhaps the best part is that these durable cabinets require very little maintenance in order to stay looking their best.
