Today’s homeowners don’t just want to find a property – they want a home that matches their personality. From houseboats to funky apartments, these homes offer a unique opportunity to express your own character, but they can be a challenge too – especially when it comes to practical countertops. Here are some great ideas from the laminate countertop edging specialists.
- Choose a lightweight countertop: These days, lightweight doesn’t mean low quality, especially if you are using a premium laminate brand. Lightweight countertops are much easier to install than granite, marble or natural stone, which often require additional structural support in the form of more expensive, heavy duty cabinets. Laminate countertops can be easier to install on almost any existing cabinet – saving your budget.
- Go bold: Quirky countertops that are have lots of character suite small spaces, giving them impact and personality rather than making them feel like a forgotten space. A bright color, striking pattern or a high contrast against the cabinet and wall colors makes for an interesting, welcoming space. Laminate countertops are the most versatile in terms of design, ranging from classic wood and stone designs to solid, glossy colors.
- Have a uniting theme: Small and unusual spaces can quickly become overwhelmed if there are too many things going on in them. A unifying theme or aesthetic will keep the space visually interesting without letting it become chaotic.
- Practical and purposeful: Unusual spaces can be difficult to use, so every surface and space needs to be practical as well as attractive. Countertops need to be able to withstand heavy use, flooring needs to be waterproof and able to manage heavy traffic, and the space has to be easy to clean. Laminate countertops are exceptionally hardwearing, easy to clean and hygienic, requiring no special care, maintenance or harsh cleaning supplies.
