A closer look at Snaidero’s melamine kitchen cabinets

Thanks to technological advancements, melamine has become a finish that offers a wide variety of options and can even be a nice alternative to wood. As it is the case with all the materials used for the Snaidero kitchens, our melamine kitchen cabinets are manufactured to achieve elegance and durability, while protecting the environment and human health.

So, let’s take a closer look at our melamine finishes.

In the case of our kitchens, “melamine cabinets” actually means cabinets with “melamine-faced doors.” Each door is made of a wood particle panel coated on both sides with melamine, which is a synthetic material made of sheets of paper imbued with resin. This helps keep the doors lighter than if the panels were made entirely of melamine.

The wood used for the particle panels is 100% post-consumer wood, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council as being 100% recycled. The resins used contain extremely low levels of formaldehyde, equal to less than a half of the standard set by the LFE E1 international certification (stricter than the standards of the California Air Resources Board).

Durability: Our melamine finishes are hard and resistant to heat, moisture, stains and scratches. The durability of our melamine cabinets is guaranteed under the Snaidero USA 10-year warranty program.

Variety of options: Being a “manufactured” material, melamine can be produced in many variations – from solid colors to finishes closely resembling wood grains. The latter type of finish also comes out as more uniformed than wood surfaces, which can vary in pattern and color even within the same kitchen.

Low maintenance: Melamine cabinets are easy to clean, just using a non-abrasive neutral liquid detergent diluted in water.
