Ever asked why high-pressure laminates (HPLs) are so in? Nope? Well, read on to know more about it.

High pressure laminate is a decorative surface material commonly applied to feature walls and cabinet surfaces. Interior decorators often recommend installing HPLs to visually enhance spaces and complement your interior design.

Here are top reasons why HPLs are so in:

It’s durable

Did you know that high pressure laminate’s lifespan are 5 to 15 years? HPLs are made of Melamine resin for decorative paper, and phenolic resin for kraft paper. It is considered one of the most durable surface material today! You can safely use it for your commercial and residential spaces without worries!

It’s very versatile

Not only are high pressure laminates stylish, they are also amazingly versatile too. It can be applied to various surfaces, such as cabinets, shelves, table tops, and doors. One unique and cost-effective way of using HPLs is to use marble-design and apply it on reception counters, instead of using real marbles on it, which may be too expensive.

High pressure laminate like the real deal for a fraction of the cost

Since HPLs are considered a child of modern technology, this genius man-made creation can look like the real deal, for a fraction of the cost.

For example, the shelf in the picture below looks like it’s made of real wood, with the grains and tones of the laminates mimicking a real wood.

If you are using HPLs on high-usage areas such as table tops or kitchen cabinets, you will need laminates that are scratch-resistant. HPLs that are scratch-resistant are rare.
