While Granite is more popular, laminate has developed into a cost effective, long lasting, attractive alternative. Laminate tops have come a long way since the 1920s by developing more textures and colors. But its appeal goes deeper than just looks. Laminate tops have proven to withstand stains, heat, and impact as well as other more expensive materials.
Let’s Talk Prices
Laminate is an inexpensive option for those looking to remodel. Typically it costs a lot less than other materials, about $10 to $50 a square foot installed. Jemson offers different laminates to pick from. Stop by our showroom to look at samples and try them in your home.
Age Isn’t a Factor
Countertops take a lot of abuse over the years. Laminate has been tested for durability against dings, scratches, scorch marks, and knife slices and resists most damages, stains, and heat. Unfortunately laminate is easily scratched by knives and isn’t repairable. So it’s a good idea to keep a cutting board at hand.
Goodbye, Ugly Seams
So we’ve established that Granite is more popular, but laminate is making a comeback. Brands like Formica and Wilsonart offer all different kinds of textures and color patterns to choose from, providing the exact style you need to tie a room together. Even better, that ugly seamed edge is gone! Now you can choose to add a decorative edge, effectively eliminating those ugly seams and black lines.
