We have a set of Merillat Essentials Milbridge II cabinets in our kitchen in medium Oak, and I’m looking to build a matching utility cabinet on one end. The problem is Merilatt uses an oak grain vinyl paper on the outside of the sides and a maple vinyl on the inside with maple vinyl for the shelves. I have no idea where to get this vinyl or laminate. I can stain the front to match, but I’m not sure I could match the color on the sides if I used oak plywood; and it certainly wouldn’t look like Maple on the inside. I hate to use their cheap construction material, but I want it to match. Any suggestions?

Thanks,

Greg

Greg:
Not a cheap solution but… In my last house I had Merillat cabinets through out the house. When I wanted to add a sideboard to match I contacted Merillat about it. They sell end panels (at least they did in oak) that matched their doors and face frames. Very thin stuff, but not vinyl.

I’ll have to check with the local Merillat supplier to see if I can order end panels. It’s at least an option.
