If yours is like most households, your kitchen is the hub of activity for family and visitors. It’s where you start your days; it’s where you and yours hang out after work, after school, and on the weekends.
As the focal point of your home, what your kitchen looks like, from the appliances in it to various color choices and even the materials used to construct your cabinets and counter tops, matters . . . a lot. Think of your kitchen as a way for you to present your personal brand to the world. You want it to say something about you and your style.
While many homeowners desire the classic look of wood, they also want the modern convenience of cabinets that are resilient and require minimal maintenance. They want cabinets that can stand up to heat, water, and the test of time.
At Holland’s Custom Cabinets, we know cabinets like that; we build them.
Holland’s custom cabinetry professionals continuously source materials from around the globe. Our goal is to make sure clients have access to the kinds of materials necessary for us to design and build them the kitchens of their dreams.
One of the materials most popular with our clients for that “just right” combination of “classic and modern” is a textured, melamine resin product manufactured in Italy by Cleaf, in the heart of that country’s Milano design district.
Don’t let the word “melamine” discourage you. Cleaf is nothing like the melamine panels of yesteryear that spurred such products as Formica and laminate flooring. Cleaf is a modern, award-winning, thermo-structured material that features a melamine panel on an underlying layer of particle board. While it mimics the look and feel of real wood, it’s super tough and stain, steam, and scratch resistant. Cleaf is also environmentally friendly and certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).
Whether yours is a new build or you’re renovating existing space, Cleaf can help you achieve that special design flare you want.
- For new builds, let your imagination roam free. Use it as the basis for all of your new cabinetry throughout the home or use it as an accent with other materials.
- If you’re renovating, keep in mind that Cleaf panels come in dozens of colors and textures, which means you’re bound to find a style that integrates well with any existing cabinetry you’re planning to keep.
Cleaf’s application is not limited only to the kitchen. It’s used frequently in home offices, dens, closets, bathrooms, laundry rooms, beverage centers, entertainment centers, and for shelving.
Desired for its realistic looking wood grain, durability, and low maintenance factor, there’s nothing else quite like it on the market. Cleaf checks all the boxes for today’s discerning homeowners looking for a high-end, sophisticated look at a reasonable price point.
