What countertop edge profiles are best for a modern kitchen?

If you want a kitchen that looks and feels very modern, you need to make sure that every aspect fits in with your vision – including your countertop edges. Here are some helpful tips from the leaders in countertop edge profiles.

  • Choose quality: Modern kitchens are all about minimalism, efficiency and practicality, so you need an edge option that will give you a look that lasts without wearing, chipping or peeling. For this, it’s best to go with independent laminate edge specialists rather than the standard offerings from your laminate manufacturer, as we have invested in the time, technology and expertise needed to develop a truly high quality product.
  • Avoid the ‘brown line’: Standard laminate countertop edges often mean dealing with an unsightly brown line at the join between the countertop and the edge. This will stand out in a modern kitchen and distract from your overall aesthetic. Professionally manufactured edges will fit seamlessly against your countertop, removing that brown line permanently.
  • Clean edges: Clean, simple lines are part of the foundation of a modern look, and this is no different in the kitchen. Single or double beveled edges and straight edges are the best profiles for these spaces, as they give a crisp and attractive accent to the room.
  • Consistency: While we can customize our edging to suit any look, we’ve found that the best results for modern kitchens focus on consistency – using matching materials and designs on all countertops within the space. Fortunately, we work with all the big laminate countertop manufacturers, so we can match your countertops and edging perfectly, whatever you choose.

Inside the laminate countertop and edging installation process

One of the best things about choosing laminate countertops for your home is the quick and easy – and inexpensive – installation process. Here’s how it works, from your specialists in laminate countertop edging.

  • Step One: Measuring. This is the most important part of the process, as incorrectly measured countertops will be a disaster. Your contractor will come through to your home and take down the floor plan and dimensions of your cabinets, as well as measure for appliances, sinks and so forth.
  • Step Two: Out with the old. On installation day, your countertops will arrive complete with your custom laminate edge, if you have chosen that option. Your old countertops will now be removed, which can be a messy job. Your cabinets will then be prepared for the new countertops by installing buildup strips to ensure a level, secure fit.
  • Step Three: Scribing for the best fit. This is the method your installer will use to ensure you get the best fit between your countertops and the walls, especially in corners. This includes shaving down the countertop in places where the wall is uneven. While this may look like a messy job, it’s essential to getting great looking countertops and the smallest, neatest joins.
  • Step Four: Attach the countertop. Now the installer can position and fix your countertops in place. This involves gluing and bolting the countertops down, and calking joints. At this point, your backsplash will also be fixed in place.
  • Step Five: Sinks. Using the sink you want installed, your installer will trace and cut its shape out of the laminate using a jigsaw. They will then place the sink in and seal around the edges to ensure no water can get into the laminate.

Maintenance-free marble? Laminate kitchen countertops are the answer

For many interior designers and homeowners, marble is the ultimate kitchen countertop. But there are downsides to living with this classic, elegant stone. While the price is exorbitant, the practical use of this stone for such a high-use area of your kitchen is even more of a problem. This stone very porous, so it soaks up liquids like wine, oil and other spills quickly – leaving stains that are difficult or even impossible to remove. It can also scratch easily, and edges have been commonly known to chip or even break off entirely. However, laminate countertops may offer you the best alternative to real marble – find out why from the experts in kitchen countertop edges.

  • Innovative design technology: The ability to accurately render the unique look of marble in full, realistic definition has been developed by leading manufacturers, which makes it a great alternative to the real thing. If you have your doubts as to how it measures up, check out the showrooms of laminate countertop manufacturers and see for yourself how amazing they look.
  • Affordability: Laminate and marble are at opposite ends of the scale as far as cost is concerned. While marble can set you back as much as $250 per square foot, the most expensive laminates are available for around $30 per square foot. The installation costs are also significantly lower, making laminate a great choice for anyone who wants to free up money in their budget for other areas of the kitchen while still getting that luxurious marble look.
  • Durability: Their ability to last through the decades is one of the most striking features of these countertops. They are easy to maintain with mild household cleaners, are non-porous for hygiene and stain resistance, are heat resistant and (while you should not cut directly onto the laminate) are impressively scratch resistant.
