Laminate Countertops

The ability to easily replace your laminate countertop altogether is another advantage for people who like to change the ‘look’ of their home. Once laminate countertops are installed, changing the surface can be easy and done at a reasonable cost as opposed to solid surface, stone, or wood countertops, which are a long-term investments.

Laminate countertops are very easy to maintain, and with the proper care, your countertop should last for many years. Cleaning your laminate countertop is easy. Just use a damp cloth or sponge with mild soap. Don’t use abrasive soaps or pads to clean tough spots as this may damage the surface. Laminate countertops are also non-porous so they will resist staining and bacteria. Be cautious of deep textured countertops. Dirt and bacteria can be harder to clean out of the deeper grooves.

You should not think of laminate countertops as something that you might find in your grandmother’s house.  They are newer and better looking than ever. They are more durable, easy to repair, and can even be replaced when you want a new look for your kitchen. Laminate countertops are an affordable and creative option for choosing a new countertop.

Laminate countertops come in a wide variety of colors and patterns. They can range from solid colors, woodgrains, to stone in appearance, but at a fraction of what you would pay for the real thing. Laminate also offers more edge choices than other materials.  Postform laminate countertops also can be ordered with a seamless cove backsplash to keep spills from seeping behind the cabinets.

One of the most popular features of laminate countertops is the ease of care. While other homeowners see everything – butter, tomato sauce, coffee, grape juice – as a stain about to happen, you can relax with laminate.

Laminate countertops are great for families with children where spills or food can sit on laminate virtually worry-free. Combined with the affordability of laminate, laminate countertops are a smart choice.

Laminate offers the best choice of colors and patterns – in addition to the best price. Yet laminate’s advantages go beyond price and selection.

Then there’s style — with laminates’ low cost and always-up-to-date patterns and colors, changing your countertop to be right in style with today’s trends is a piece of cake. Selling your house and want to make your kitchen sparkle for potential buyers? A new laminate countertop will have a much greater impact on your sale price than a coat of paint.
