An industry standard for many generations, laminate is an extremely durable and reliable countertop material, making it an ideal surface for busy homes and offices. With a large variety of new colors and designs developed recently, laminate countertops are seeing a resurgence in popularity.

Advantages of Laminate
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 this old-school material.
- Family-Friendly: As 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.
- Cost Effective: Drastically more reasonably priced than stone, it’s an affordable solution for homeowners looking to renovate on a small budget, and still get great style.
- Low Maintenance: Only soap and water are needed to keep this material clean. No sealers or special polishes needed, as required by other countertop materials such as stone and quartz.
- Wide Variety of Colors: Popular brands such as Formica and Wilsonart are continuously coming out with new colors, patterns and even materials.
- It’s Versatile: It can be cut into pretty much any shape, providing a fantastic solution for rooms with difficult dimensions.
- Great for Any Room: For all the reasons above, this is a practical material for any room in a house, including bathroom countertops, laundry room folding stations and home office desks.
We will definitely be returning to them for our next project. We highly recommend Metropolitan for your countertops.
