Selecting a suitable surfacing material for your kitchen cabinets is crucial in terms of functionality and design. Some of us only think of the overall appearance, whereas others may consider the durability and maintenance of the kitchen cabinets.
There are plenty of options to choose from, such as tiles and laminates. Tiles are easy to maintain but they can be costly depending on the type, size, and quality. Laminates, on the other hand, are known as the affordable alternative for various surfacing materials.
If you are looking for an affordable option that looks amazing and is easy to maintain, then Clean Touch laminates may be what you’re looking for. Here’s what you need to know about the laminate and its pros and cons.
What is Clean Touch Laminate?
Like many other laminate companies in Singapore, Jennings Laminate had a breakthrough in their R&D (research & development) of high-pressure laminates and advanced technology. This resulted in a new type of laminate, Clean Touch, that leaves no traces after touching.
Plus, its ultra-matte, smooth surface makes it a fuss-free maintenance laminate. With a highly opaque surface and anti-fingerprint property, the Clean Touch laminate can create a modern and luxurious look for your kitchen.
In addition, it is highly resistant to scratches and abrasion. The laminate is also easy to clean, water-resistant, and mould-resistant, making it an ideal surfacing material for various interior applications, including the kitchen.
Pros and Cons of Clean Touch Laminate
When choosing the right type of laminate for your kitchen cabinets, there are many things to consider. Here are some of the pros and cons of Clean Touch laminate:
Bacteria can grow on walls and surfaces of your home, especially kitchen cabinets, as they are exposed to cooking fumes that may contain dirt and grease. With Clean Touch laminates infused with anti-bacterial properties, you can protect your kitchen cabinets from bacterial growth and prevent diseases.
2. Easy to clean
While other matte laminates require us to clean with a dry cloth after using a damp cloth, Clean Touch laminates repel water. This means the surface will dry up without leaving water marks. Besides, Clean Touch laminates have a smooth surface, making cleaning your kitchen cabinets a breeze.
We all know what it’s like to leave our fingerprints on certain surfaces like glass, leaving you with the need to wipe them away. However, with Clean Touch laminates, you need not worry as it comes with an anti-fingerprint property. So, no matter how often you have to open the kitchen cabinets, there will be no traces of your fingerprints.
4. Low-light Reflection
As most laminates come with a glossy finish, they tend to reflect more light, illuminating the kitchen better. But, if you prefer a sleek kitchen with matte finishing, Clean Touch laminates are perfect for your kitchen as they offer low-light reflection. They can also be used as a chalkboard to jot down the ingredients you need.
5. Thermal Self-healing
Through a breakthrough in German technology, using electron beam curing, fine scratches on our Clean Touch laminates can be removed using your fingers, a sponge, etc., as long as there’s friction which doesn’t damage your kitchen cabinets.
1. It cannot be repaired
Because Clean Touch laminates comprise multiple layers of kraft paper, the surface of your kitchen cabinets cannot be repaired once it has been damaged or worn out. This means you will need to replace the entire laminated surface. Also, they cannot be sanded down and repolished to make your kitchen cabinet look new.
As the pros outweigh the cons, choosing Clean Touch laminate for your kitchen cabinets may be your best option. After all, laminates are more affordable if you have to stick to a budget.
