5 Reasons We Love Laminate Countertops

For high traffic areas of the home, like kitchens, laundry rooms and basements, laminate is a great option for countertops. Here are the reasons why we still love the old-school material.

  1. Family-Friendly: Since laminate is a solid surface, it’s not porous, and therefore doesn’t absorb bacteria and food spills as some natural stone surfaces do. For a busy, active household, laminate counters are a convenient choice.
  2. Cost Effective: Drastically more affordable than stone, laminate countertops are a smart option for homeowners looking to renovate on a small budget, and still get great style.
  3. Low Maintenance: Only soap and water are needed to keep laminate countertops clean. No sealers or special polishes needed, as required by other countertop materials such as stone and quartz.
  4. Wide Variety of Colors: Popular brands such as Formica and Wilsonart are continuously coming out with new colors, patterns and even materials.
  5. It’s Versatile: Laminate can be cut into pretty much any shape, providing a fantastic solution for rooms with difficult dimensions.
