Are laminate countertops the right choice for your customer?

Choosing the right countertops for a kitchen or bathroom is a big decision in most home renovations, and contractors are often called on to weigh in with their opinion. Although the ultimate choice is always the client’s, an informed decision can help them get the product that will deliver the highest level of satisfaction! According to Corian countertop edging specialists, laminate countertops are likely your client’s best option if:

  • They have a tight budget: Renovations are expensive and completing them on time and on a budget means looking for high-quality products that can help save money. Laminate is the most affordable countertop option, as it more affordable than granite or marble by a significant amount and it is easy to install.
  • They want quality: Often, high-priced goods are associated with the best quality, but that isn’t the case with countertops. Laminate countertops don’t chip like quartz, granite and marble, stain like tile grouting, crack like concrete, get damaged by heat easily or scratch easily like stainless steel. In fact, consumer reports have consistently evaluated laminate against a wide range of countertop materials for all kinds of wear, tear and damage, and laminate has come out on top overall.
  • They want a certain style: Do your clients like the look of classic granites and marble? Do they like the modern look of composite stone or solid surface? Or do they want to do something wild and creative? Thanks to new design technology, laminates can be made to look like almost anything you can imagine, from bright colors and patterns to granite like laminate that is almost indistinguishable from the real deal. If they have a specific style in mind, chances are that you can find it in laminate.
  • They want a custom finish: The days of standard laminate countertop edging is over and you can now offer your clients edging that is customized to their unique vision. Made from laminate, wood, solid surface or a combination of these, edging can be designed with a range of profiles like beveled, round or ogee edges to create a unique look.

Laminate kitchen countertops and backsplashes – Budget friendly and so trendy!

Laminate countertops are no longer an undesirable feature in a home, thanks to new design technology. In fact, they are one of the most popular kitchen countertop options due to their combination of budget-friendly pricing and great look! What’s more, you can extend this high-quality product to other uses in your kitchen, including laminate backsplashes and backsplash edges, and countertop edging.

By having a matching or decorative backsplash created for your kitchen, you’re not only extending the style and aesthetics of your countertop, but also adding a durable and practical feature. Here’s why:

  • Walls always have some imperfections and this creates a gap between the countertop and the wall. Hiding this gap with a backsplash gives your kitchen countertops a more finished and high quality look.
  • Backsplashes prevent water from getting onto the wall or seeping down between cupboards – something that can easily happen during washing up, kitchen spills and even while cleaning your countertops. Your backsplash prevents this, forming an effective barrier that keeps your walls and cupboards damp and mold-free.

Laminate backsplashes and backsplash edges 

At Kuehn Bevel, we can match all colors and styles from the leading laminate manufacturers, from Formica, Pionite and Wilsonart to Corian and more, as well as offering a variety of different solid surface colors. Our custom designs are expertly manufactured using state-of-the-art technology, ensuring that you get the exact look you are after at the highest quality – but still at a fraction of the cost.

How to remodel your kitchen the easy way!

Few things brighten up your home, add more functionality and increase its value quite like a kitchen remodel. But these projects can become very expensive, very quickly. Here are some tips from laminate countertop specialists at Kuehn Bevel for getting a high-end, practical result easily without breaking your budget:

  • Don’t move your plumbing: Unless you absolutely have to do it, keep your major appliances and sinks in the same spots. One of the biggest hidden costs in renovations is the plumbing, and reducing this side of your project will save you time, money and hassle.
  • A fresh coat of paint: Paint colors allow you to really express your creativity and achieve your new look without spending a lot of money or effort. You can easily go vintage, country or modern chic just by choosing the right paint colors. In addition to your walls, your cupboards and drawers can be painted too and, along with new handles, these will bring new life to the heart of your home.
  • Lighting: Kitchens need bright, even lighting to make them functional and this easy update doesn’t have to take a lot of time or money. Be sure to consider lighting at different levels, for example, hanging lights over the breakfast bar, or under-counter lighting. Be sure to use high efficiency bulbs that give off a natural light for a warm but practical touch.
  • Laminate countertops: These days, laminate countertops are setting the trend in kitchen design with looks that are almost indistinguishable from high-end stone, wood and granite countertops. Budget-friendly and easy to install, you can also add extra character with beveled edge laminate countertop trim for an elegant finishing touch.
