What is a Laminate
Laminate cabinets are an alternative to making cabinets from real hardwoods. Laminate refers to manufactured wood that is covered with a variety of "skins" to make the final product appear to be made from real wood. Traditionally, these types of laminate products were frowned down upon by homeowners who view laminate cabinets as extremely low quality.
While it is true that nothing can match the aesthetic and durable quality of real wood cabinets, laminate products have improved over the years. Today, laminate based cabinetry products offer an extremely affordable product that can be significantly cheaper than real wood cabinets. Lily Ann makes all of our own cabinets from real wood, but for cabinet buyers looking to spend less than even the most affordable real wood cabinets, laminate cabinetry can be a budget-friendly option.
