Cabinets: Vinyl- and Melamine-covered Particle Board

Posted by hit4show (My Page) on

Been looking at kitchen cabinets, including used. How do you determine whether the material you are looking at (for drawers, shelves, and carcasses) is vinyl over particle board or melamine over particle board?

Comparing just vinyl and melamine, is melamine generally considered more durable?
