The kitchen is the key to your home! It’s the busiest room, where homework is done, family dinners are cooked, breakfast is made, and the gossip is caught up with over a cup of coffee. So it needs to be as durable and flexible as you are, giving you one clear choice of material for your worktops: laminate.
Laminate is perfect for kitchen worktops; it’s long lasting, scratch resistant, heat resistant, easy to keep clean and the most budget-friendly option, as well as being available in a huge choice of colours and finishes. Here are a few suggestions for how to incorporate laminate kitchen worktops in a contemporary kitchen design.
Kitchen Worktops in a Brightly Coloured Kitchen
One of the key looks this year for kitchen cupboards and units is bold colour and high gloss: think a stunning scarlet, fresh lime green or dramatic black. Your choice of worktop in this style of kitchen needs to be bold too, able to hold its own against a riot of colour, or it will simply look a bit half-hearted. Stick to a glossy finish – a black granite effect works well and is a very strong look. For extra bling, choose a granite finish that has a bit of sparkle to it, it will catch the light and reflect beautifully. This is a look for people who aren’t afraid to make an interior design statement! Have a look at some inspiration here: http://interiorzine.com/2015/11/24/kitchen-design-trends-2016-2017/.
Kitchen Worktops in a Cream Kitchen
At the other end of the spectrum is the classic cream kitchen. A popular choice as it is fairly timeless and won’t date, a cream kitchen can be elegant and chic. You have a great choice for your laminate worktop as pretty much everything will go with it, from a wood effect to a block colour. A new worktop is an excellent way to brighten up an old kitchen too and give it a contemporary feel, and you can also bring splashes of colour in with your kettle, toaster and other appliances.
