When shopping for closet organizers, it is often difficult to understand exactly what you are buying. One of the questions we are often asked is to describe the term “melamine”.
Melamine is an organic compound that is often combined with formaldehyde to produce melamine resin, a synthetic polymer which is fire resistant and heat tolerant. Melamine resin is a very versatile material with a highly stable structure and is commonly used in the construction of closet organizer shelves and vertical panels. The surface of the material is designed to be easily wiped and cleaned, resulting in durable and dirt resistant closet organizer units.
Most closet organizer companies use melamine shelves and vertical panels in their closet organizer designs. It is durable, structurally sound, comes in a wide variety of colors and styles, and costs less that solid wood or wood laminate. Most consumers would not be willing to spend the kind of money required to put a solid wood organizer into their closet, so melamine provides a similar look and feel for a much more reasonable price.
Although melamine offers flexibility to design and create closet organizers in all sizes and colors, it is not a particularly easy material for the DIY homeowner to work with. Cutting or drilling holes into melamine requires the use of the proper blades and drills to prevent chipping. An easier way to build custom closet organizers to meet your unique needs would be to purchase the melamine shelves and vertical panels already cut and drilled from a closet organizer supplier.
