Low Pressure Laminates, such as Melteca, provide a tough, stain resistant finish that is virtually maintenance free. In a Hi-Gloss finish Melteca offers a shiny surface without the scratching or chipping properties of lacquer.
Full extension drawers in the corner make products in the further-most space easy to access and you have a great visual on everything inside. No more lost items in the back of the cupboard thanks to high sided drawers, and because they are drawers, they can be organized with a vast range of internal drawer accessories.
Don't forget about the small appliances - function must come first so choose the appliances that will make mealtimes easier. Think about storage - will you keep everything tucked out of sight, or in pride of place on the benchtop? For visible or everyday appliances consider choosing ones that match the overall decor of your kitchen.
Laminate is the most popular choice of benchtops in New Zealand and is one of the most cost-effective options, available in a large range of colours and patterns. Formica AR+™ finish is a superior high gloss laminate. With greater abrasive and scuff resistance, horizontal surfaces will maintain their shine over standard gloss laminates.
