How laminate kitchen countertops measure up against the competition

Thanks to new manufacturing and design processes, laminate countertops are becoming one of the most popular options for interior designers and home renovation projects – but how do they compare to other materials?

  • Granite: This natural stone is still very much in demand thanks to its wide range of colors and patterns as well as its durability. However, it can be very expensive to buy and install, and although it can handle heat and knife nicks well, it does need to be sealed regularly to avoid staining and keep it in good condition. It is also very heavy, so you need to invest in high quality cabinets that can hold this weight properly.
  • Solid surface: Although this is an acrylic and polyester blend, it isn’t by any means a cheap option. It is non-porous, has a seamless installment and comes in every color and pattern – but his high-end product comes with a luxury price tag that can detract from its great features. It is also susceptible to burns and scratches.
  • Tile: Always a kitchen staple, tiles offer you a chance to get creative and install a beautiful old world kitchen. Although it is chip and heat resistant, the uneven surface can be difficult to clean and work with while the grouting can lead to bacterial growth if it isn’t regularly sealed.
  • Stainless steel: A stylish option that suits the industrial aesthetic, these countertops are indestructible, bacteria resistant and heat resistant. However, they can dent fairly easily and their natural shine makes every fingerprint show up. Because they are custom made to fit your kitchen, the cost of these countertops can be very high.
  • Laminate: Laminate offers the best of each material without the downside. It can deliver the look of granite, the non-porous character of solid surface, the creativity of tile and the bacterial and heat resistance of stainless steel – all without the cost. Laminate kitchen countertops are easy to clean and last for decades, and can be designed to suit any design aesthetic, from modern minimalism to warm traditional materials.

How to choose the right countertop for your kitchen

New kitchen countertops are a great investment, whether you are looking to simply and quickly upgrade your space or if you are going for a full kitchen remodel. With so many options available these days, choosing the perfect countertop can be quite a challenge. Here is some helpful advice from the leaders in kitchen countertop edge options.

  • Know your materials: Throughout the years, laminate has become one of the most resilient countertop options. Made with moisture-resistant medium-density fibreboard (MDF), laminate countertops are manufactured with unsurpassed strength and durability
  • Decide on your budget: Laminate countertops are the most budget-friendly countertop option. With endless styles to choose from, you can have the same look of the more expensive materials without blowing your entire budget in your kitchen remodel.
  • Choose an aesthetic: Once you know the look you want to achieve in your kitchen, you’ll be able to narrow down your countertop choices in order to get the right atmosphere. Keep in mind that new technology has brought some great changes to laminate countertop manufacturing, resulting in beautiful, high-quality countertops that are almost indistinguishable from more expensive options.
  • Consider care and maintenance: If you love to cook and spend a lot of time entertaining in your kitchen, you’re going to need a countertop that can withstand lots of hard work and clean easily. Wooden and stainless steel countertops can wear and scratch easily, while laminate countertops require little maintenance other than a wipe down with household detergent.
