Any search for materials to use during kitchen remodeling is incomplete without considering laminate finishes. Laminate is a material that is durable, affordable and customizable. It is made by pressing together layers of heavy-duty paper with a compound known as melamine, which hardens into a resin. This solid veneer, can be covered in a thin decorative layer. Manufacturers can print any type of decorative design on these finishes. Normally, a wood grain pattern is used, but the possibilities are endless. As a final touch, a layer of clear protective coating is applied.
