One of the most popular innovations of recent times is high pressure laminates. If you are thinking of remodeling your kitchen, your bath, or any other room in your home you will probably reap the benefits of high pressure laminates.
High pressure laminates are durable, decorative surface materials that are made with multiple layers of paper treated with resin. The material is fused together under tremendous pressure to form a surface that is low maintenance and resistant to impact, scratching, fire, and chemicals. For just this reason, high pressure laminates are very popular for use as kitchen surfaces, countertops, doors and furniture.
From laboratories to homes to commercial stores, high pressure laminates have replaced more costly and less durable materials. The beautiful marble countertops in the model home you toured is most likely made of high pressure laminates, as is the realistic wood used in that upscale jewelry store in your favorite shopping mall. Because of their durability and beauty, these materials are used everywhere–as public restroom partitions, office cubicles, and even home furniture. A dining set that you could swear is genuine, lustrous cherry wood is, these days, most likely made of quality high pressure laminates.
One of the many advantages of these materials is its variety. High pressure laminates are made in hundreds of different colors and shades, patterns and textures. The materials can vary from glossy smooth to matte and textures range from pebbled to smooth wood grain. Imagine a pattern and you can probably find it in high pressure laminates from modern abstract to geometrical and everything in between.
Surfaces made of high pressure laminates are easy to clean and will stay looking fresh and new for years with just minimal care. Their scratch resistant quality is one reason they are so popular.
High pressure laminates are popular in the manufacture of kitchen and other cabinetry, too. The colors and patterns never fade and, unlike wood, they are easy to keep clean and will not warp due to humidity or heat. Cabinets look new decades after they are installed, unlike wooden or metal cabinets.
High pressure laminates can beautify your home or office in nearly any style, color, texture, or pattern you could wish for.
