High-pressure laminate sheets for Kitchen from NewMika Laminates

4 Key Benefits of Using Laminates in Kitchens

A kitchen is undoubtedly one of the most important spaces in a home - both from a functional as well as aesthetic point of view. Therefore, when choosing a surfacing solution for your kitchen space, you need to choose one that not only offers high durability and functionality but also scores high on the design quotient. High-Pressure Laminates, for instance, offer all the qualities that make them an ideal surfacing solution for kitchen surfaces. On that note, let’s look at some of the key benefits of using HPL sheets in kitchen spaces.

1. HPL sheets are available in a variety of design options.

The best thing about HPL sheets is that they are available in a wide range of colours, textures, and surface finishes. No matter how unique your design idea, you can choose from the countless laminate sheet designs to bring it to life. Also, NewMika allows you to order custom digital laminates with digitally printed patterns.

2. HPL sheets offer excellent thermal properties.

HPL sheets are manufactured using melamine resin, which makes them highly resistant to heat. They are designed to resist dry heat up to 180 °C, which makes them a perfect surfacing solution for commercial and residential kitchen spaces. (Note - Though HPL sheets have high dry heat resistance, it is advisable to avoid exposing them to extreme temperatures.)

3. HPL sheets have antimicrobial properties.

This is one of the biggest benefits of choosing laminates over other surfacing materials. Kitchen surfaces are prone to bacterial growth as they are exposed to moisture and food ingredients, which are one of the primary causes of germ infestation. NewMika laminate sheets come with antimicrobial properties that make them highly resistant to the growth of bacteria and other disease-causing pathogens.

4. HPL sheers are easy to maintain.

Maintaining the kitchen space is always something of a challenge. Laminates make things much easier, as they are resistant to stains and scratches. They are easy to clean and maintain, as all you need to do is wipe them regularly with a clean microfiber cloth. In case of any stubborn stains (which is rare), you can use a mild gentle soap and a sponge to get the best results
