Apart from knowing that it is a low cost option for a kitchen worktop, how much do you actually know about laminate? The chances are it’s not all that much. So here is our quick guide to laminate, which may have a few facts that will surprise you!
Laminate Worktops are Strong & Stain Repellent
One of the best features about laminate is how tough and durable it is. Did you know it’s actually as scratch resistant as granite? Granite is one of the toughest materials on the planet, so that is quite impressive! It is also as heat resistant as quartz. It has stain repelling properties, meaning it will stay looking great long after granite and other solid counter-top options have started to show marks and stains – and you won’t be troubled by bacteria or mold growing on it either – it is by far the easiest option to keep clean, and requires the least maintenance – no standing, staining or oiling required.
High Quality, Versatile Laminate Worktops
You may think of laminate as looking a bit like a cheap copy of more natural materials, but the high quality of laminate worktops now means that this simply isn’t true. It’s difficult to tell the difference between real granite, stone or wood and their laminate equivalents, and they are an awful lot easier to look after! As well as natural finishes, laminate is available in a huge array of styles, from ultra high gloss to simple block colour.
Are you aware how versatile laminate is? As well as covering a worktop in any style you like, they can be moulded and formed into a variety of different shapes, offering you the opportunity to have a seamless backsplash in high traffic areas and a fully customised workspace.
With all these advantages, as well as the incredible value for money that a laminate worktop offers you, it really is the sensible choice for your kitchen. It is as scratch resistant as granite, and as heat resistant as quartz, while being mouldable and available in any finish you choose. Laminate is definitely something worth having in your home.
