We are considering buying ready to assemble melamine cabinets from the Mills Pride line for our kitchen. We are on a limited budget and they seem very reasonably priced. However, I haven't been able to find much information on them as far as durability.

Is using melamine recommended? Is it the same as particle board that's been laminated? Will the cabinets hold up over time? Any advice is appreciated.

Melamine is a good way to go (price and durabitity) melamine is a poly coverd particle bord. as long as they are installed corect they are very good (better in the stain and clean up area) the only problem is water geting to the partical core but if edge taped and seal all holes with silicone they are very durabal. and should last 30 + years good luck
