Bestwood Melamine Interior Panels

Bestwood Melamine is a great choice not just for kitchens but for any interior project that needs to look good and work its socks off.

Our low pressure melamine panels are made to cope with life's knocks and carry a 10 year warranty.  We offer a choice of texture finishes on all colours - Velvet, Embossed, Woodgrain and Wilderness.  Plus our newly launched Timberland finish offers an incredibly deep and realistic timber grain that has fooled even the experts into thinking it was a real veneer when used in conjunction with a woodgrain design.  A high gloss finish is available for white only. 

Bestwood Melamine carries Environmental Choice NZ accreditation and has an extensive range of substrate options including MDF MR/EO, MDF FR and particleboard.  1800-wide panels are also available, giving added flexibility and affordability.  Our melamine carries at 10 year warranty.

Note:  Aways make your colour selections from an actual sample, not from a digital screen where colour variation will occur.
