So Watt

Laminex on Ply Cover Panels


Durable Colourful Plywood Cover Panel with Laminate for IKEA METOD Cabinets

Designed + Made by So Watt made materials.

Our curated range of Australian made Laminex laminates pressed onto local hoop pine ply celebrates Australian manufacturing, giving you an accessible and durable kitchen that exhibits the best characteristics of both materials

This collection of cover panels are designed to match those offered by IKEA. That means they are not oversized and will fit to the end of your IKEA METOD cabinet without needing power tools to trim the size.

Make sure you are happy that the depth of these cover panels will be enough to cover the side of your cabinet and the thickness of the So Watt door, plus 2mm for the gap created by the hinges.

Standard sized cover panels are available at standard heights or extra tall for wall mounted cabinets with overhang doors, so that the bottom edge lines up.

For the perfect fit, choose a slightly larger size ready to be cut down to the exact size by your installer on site (this is called scribing).

Available in 24 colours with more options available on request, this is Australia's favourite locally manufactured laminate collection. Visit Laminex Hive showrooms across Australia to learn more about this material and see the other colours in their ever-growing catalogue.
