If you would like a certain color or simulate a certain look or material, laminate will you to do just that! Along with an abundance of color choices, you can add decorative, rounded, or ridged edges to customize the product to your desires. You can also integrate laminate into products such as sinks to complete the picture and style of any room.
In terms of durability, laminate is resistant against stains and heat. Because laminate is made of a non-porous material, it will not absorb spilled liquids and can easily be cleaned with a damp cloth. This provides a surface that will be clean, eco-friendly, and reduce the amount of bacteria on your countertop surfaces. You do not have to seal the counter, saving you money and the introduction of toxic chemicals into your home. Placing hot pans or hair styling items will not damage the countertops, but using the surface as a cutting board or preparing food directly on the surface may easily scratch your laminate countertop.
With a cost between $10 and $40 per square foot, laminate is a cost-effective material to install in the home and is considerably less expensive than most materials used for countertop surfaces. It is widely available and easy to install, making the material desirable for those inexperienced in countertop and surface installation. Even though purchasing and installing laminate surfaces and countertops will not add value or ROI to your home, its affordability and durability is a great touch for starter homes and families on a tight budget.
