If you’re in the process – or are thinking about – upgrading your kitchen worktops, laminate is a great choice.
While it may be a lot cheaper than a lot of the alternatives, that doesn’t mean you will lose out on any of the looks or quality. In fact, many people actually prefer it – and we’re here to tell you why.
Join us as we run through three of the key benefits of fitting a laminate worktop, highlighting why we here at House of Worktops think they make such a great choice.
Laminate worktops are easier to maintain
Compared to wooden worktops, which require oiling on a bi-annual basis and can stain more easily when incorrectly looked after, maintaining laminate worktops is an absolute breeze.
The protective layer that laminate worktops are constructed from means that any accidental spills can be quickly and easily cleaned up, without fear they’ll seep into and stain the surface when left unattended over an extended period.
Laminate worktops are cheaper to replace
While on the topic of spillages, it’s safe to say that the kitchen is one of the home’s hotspots for accidents to happen.
Whether it be a hot pan being left on the side for slightly too long, a red wine spill or a crack from a heavy bowl falling onto the worktop, it’s likely that your worktops will suffer some form of minor damage over time.
Therefore, when this happens, you will be thankful for having laminate worktops, due to how much cheaper they are to repair or replace than other types of material.
Laminate offer a huge amount of variety
Depending on the look and style of the kitchen you are going for, laminate worktops come in a wide range of designs, styles and colours.
As such, they can seamlessly match your kitchen’s design, allowing you to fit your worktops around the rest of your kitchen, instead of the other way around.
Whether you’re looking for a clean sparkly white worktop, a cloudy autumn worktop or more of a traditional farmhouse block worktop, the variety on offer is certainly one of the key benefits of fitting laminate worktops in your home.
Here at House of Worktops, we are big advocates of laminate worktops. And, as the points listed above should now prove, it’s not really hard to see why.
