When it comes to building materials for a custom closet, solid wood is the known quantity. Melamine, on the other hand, is a bit of an unknown, or at least somewhat misunderstood.
Melamine is often mistakenly lumped in with the cheap laminates you’d find at a home improvement store. The fact is, a high-quality melamine product is just as attractive as solid wood while providing more durability at a lower price.
Unfortunately, many homeowners regret choosing solid wood. They made their decision because they like the sound of “solid wood” but didn’t realize the level of quality and value that melamine brings to the table.
Before you move forward with your custom closet system, it’s important to understand the differences between melamine and solid wood so you can make an informed decision.
