Laminates and Countertops
A passionate interior designer who’s long been associated with us, once said, “Laminates are the loveliest thing that could have ever happened to countertops”. Whether you agree to it or not is up to you. But what we can tell is that it was said in a moment, and came straight from the heart.
Would you prefer a boring colored countertop or a new vibrant colored countertop? Well, the answer is quite obvious!
Laminates are a popular choice when it comes to choosing a countertop for kitchen or other surfaces of a house. They’re attractive, durable, economical and easy-to-maintain. Moreover, laminates are designed to mimic virtually every type of hardwood, and come in matte, shiny, and other finishes along with a wide variety of colors and styles.
If you’re looking to give your home a new, fresh and attractive look, then compact laminates can add value to your living space. Also, just to state it again, you’ll never run out of choices when it comes to laminate designs and textures.
The Three Sides to Countertop Laminates
- – Color
Have you ever noticed a colorful thing catch your eye when you enter a place? Well, that’s exactly what color can do to you. Hence, when picking a compact laminate, the first thing to choose is the color. Color is something that affects a person’s mood in some way. So, choose an encouraging or a relaxed color that gives you cheerful and happy thoughts. Plus, you need to ensure that the color of the laminate sits well with the color of the walls and the surroundings, so that it doesn’t look out of place.
- – Pattern
Laminates come in a range of patterns, including wood grains, stone, abstracts and solids. So, there is absolutely no doubt of finding the perfect one according to your choice and needs. While you can make a choice as per your likes and dislikes, here’s a little tip for you – choose wood grains and stone for counters in your kitchen and bathroom, and solid ones for other places.
- – Finish
Just like patterns, you can browse through the finish options available. Stone, metal, gloss, embossed, hand scraped, matte, and many more, there’re absolutely endless options when it comes to finish of the laminates.
