Why choose between solid surface and laminate countertops?

When it comes to choosing between solid surface and laminate countertops, it’s important to understand the difference between the two. For instance, there’s no point in purchasing laminate when solid surface better meets your needs than laminate.

Laminate, once a leader in the industry, has certain benefits such as extensive variety in benefits, especially where appearance is concerned. It’s also more affordable and easily replaced if necessary. Some of our most popular examples of laminate countertops include Formica and Wilson Art. These names are synonymous with high - qual ity Formica for the discerning, but budget - minded, homeowner.

Solid surface counters, on the other hand, are one solid piece of natural material, all the way through. Quartz and granite are excellent examples of this niche and represent a large portion of the market. MSI makes great quality countertops, as does Zeal Quartz, providing excellence, durability, and easy to maintain surfaces, especially when professionally installed.

Solid surface and laminate countertops play a vital role in a great kitchen or bathroom remodel. If you are in need of products that can truly make a difference in not only how your home looks, but how it functions as well, be sure to research the two further. As always, our associates are standing by to assist you and answer any questions concerning either material.
