Kitchen Worktops Plus
Laminate is another popular choice for kitchens in the UK, laminate worktops offer an attractive option for your kitchen at a more affordable price than most other surfaces. They are quite hard wearing, resistant to heat and easy to maintain. The main advantage of laminate is that it is available in a larger range of colours than other materials so it will fit in with any colour scheme.
Laminate surfaces are more heat resistant than they used to be and will withstand heat from boiling water and other moderately hot spillages and containers. It is not recommended that you place a hot pan on a laminated worktop as this can warp the surface.
Due to the non-porous surface of laminate, liquids will not be absorbed and can be easily wiped away. Laminate surfaces are very resistant to most stains and with minimal care will retain their uniform colour without discolouration from staining or sunbleaching for years.
The colours laminates are available in is far more extensive than other kitchen worktop materials. A solid colour can be chosen if desired, or if you want the look of a wooden or natural stone worktop at a fraction of the price, there is also a large choice of simulated colours. The quality of these imitation laminates has progressed greatly and in many cases it is hard to tell the difference just by looking at it. The range of laminate colours means that you can have the look of natural wood or stone in an synthetic colour. The design possibilities are endless!
Clearly the top choice for colour selection and affordability, laminate worktops offer a range of looks for your kitchen without breaking the bank. A laminate worktop is an attractive option and, if properly maintained, will last for years.
