Melamine is an excellent material for building closets. Melamine looks like wood but it is actually a laminate that is engineered to be more durable than the woods used to build lower-quality closets, such as plywood. Melamine is lightweight and durable, and it doesn’t warp.

Melamine is durable and can be customized to your liking. During the design consultation, we will go over the options and finishes of melamine with you so that you get the look you desire.

Melamine is a great closet material if you need storage space with quality but on a tight budget.

Closet & Beyond uses melamine boards that were imported. They are 100% recycled.

MDF Laminate

MDF Laminate boards are a better quality product made from melamine. MDF laminate is available in pre-made furniture boards so they can be installed. MDF laminate, unlike melamine is made from hardwood fibers and resins. This creates a strong building material.

You have many color options when you choose MDF laminate to make your closet. MDF laminate is more expensive than melamine but it’s a superior material.

Boutique Boards

Our best-selling boards are lacquer painted or wood-veneered. Lacquer paint can be used to match any color on high-quality MDF boards.

Wood-veneered boards are made from a high-quality hardwood veneer, which is then bonded to a material. Real wood can be used, including maple, walnut, oak, cherry and cherry.
