Make your kitchen look colossal by using plastic laminate

By Robert Meccale Subscribe to RSS | May 18th 2012 | Views:

Are you looking to give your kitchen a complete makeover? Although, there are several options available but plastic laminate has its own advantages. This is the reason why a large number of homeowners prefer using this laminate variety over other materials. Plastic laminate is a thin material that is used to cover countertops. This laminate comes in several different colors and designs. You can choose from dull or gloss finish. It is easy to install and can conform to the shape of your countertop. By using them you can add appeal to your kitchen. Let’s find out more about this gloss laminate variety in the following paragraphs.

The idea of plastic laminate was basically developed in early 1900’s when the engineers were searching for something that acts as insulating material to mount electrical components. To achieve this, someone soaked paper in melamine resin and it turned hard after heating. This incident marked the introduction of what we all know today as plastic laminates.

In simple words, plastic laminate is multiple layers of craft paper soaked into melamine resin and then put to high pressure and temperature which results in a reinforced surface. The upper surface of plastic laminate which looks attractive is made by pasting decorative paper on the upper layer that gives it an elegant look. This product is now widely used in homes and offices for decorative purposes. Decoration may be linked to laminate countertops, lockers or sheeting. Moreover, there are large numbers of laminate manufacturers worldwide offering the great range of laminate products to people.

One of the most common problems faced by plastic laminate users is that they see brown lines at the edges of laminate. The brown line is nothing but simply the layers of Kraft paper. The interesting thing is that when the issue was noticed by laminate manufacturers, they overcome this problem by using black colored Kraft papers for laminate manufacturing. This gives plastic laminate a more solid shade.

Before you buy plastic laminates for your kitchen, we recommend you visit the market and research thoroughly to compare the prices, quality, designs, colors and style. You will find the prices almost fair but you may find high prices for solid colour plastic laminates. It is all up to you to make the apt choice of laminate as per your requirement. Take a decision only after looking at various options considerably.
