High-tech melamine

summerOakSized

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.
