Laminate worktops are a great option for kitchen countertops because they are durable, affordable, and come in a range of different pattern and texture options. With so many different laminate countertop suppliers it can be difficult to known which laminate product to choose. Here are answers to some of the questions you may be asking.
What is the difference between low-cost and more expensive laminate options?
The main difference in laminate costs lie in the quality of material used and the colours on offer. High-quality products, such as Formica LifeSeal Worktops, come in a wide range of colours and finishes. Formica LifeSeal Worktops also offer a non-drip edge, or seal, that protects the worktop from moisture making it last longer than less expensive alternatives.
What maintenance is required?
If installed and treated properly, good quality laminate worktops will not require much maintenance. Clean the surface with a soft cloth and mild detergents and do your best not to scratch or cut the surface.
Should the side edging start to lift this can be easily replaced.
What are the cons?
There are some downsides to laminate worktops but most of these can be avoided by choosing a quality laminate countertop supplier. Lower quality countertops can look cheap, can be susceptible to water damage, and can scratch and chip easily thus shortening their lifespan.
What is the instillation process?
Experienced DIY enthusiasts can install laminate worktops themselves provided they have the correct tools.
For those who aren’t up to installing their own worktops, a contractor or handyman can do so for you. Installing laminate countertops is a relatively easy and quick job, but be sure to choose someone who does neat work.
