High-tech melamine


Melamine has come a long way. Today's "thermo fused laminates" (TFL) melamines are durable and the colors and textures are better than many expensive laminates. And, TFL price points are much lower! Textured melamines look great, are very durable and competitively priced. Doors come in modern slab and traditional shaker styles.

Silicon Valley ADU

By David Wright | March 2, 2022

This beautiful Silicon Valley ADU uses thermofused laminate (TFL) for the cabinet door and drawer fronts. TFL is similar to traditional laminate but with more texture and literally heat fused onto the surface of the substrate. The price and durability can’t be beat and it’s nearly impossible to tell it from wood.
