Custom Cabinetry
Creating the Ultimate Blend of Elegance and Functionality


Laminates are the most common -- and usually most affordable -- countertop choice. Brand names include Formica and Wilsonart. They're made of plastic-coated synthetics with a smooth surface that's easy to clean. Laminate countertops are available in granular, matte, or glossy finishes and sold pre-molded with rounded edges or in sheets which are glued onto a plywood form on-site. Laminate countertops are offered in a variety of colors and patterns.


Laminate countertops are the least durable material in the marketplace.


Laminate is one of the cheapest products available. Prices vary somewhat by quality and pattern but are generally between $25 - $80 per square foot.


Laminate countertops require little maintenance and do not require annual sealing.


Different types of laminate counters offer different levels of green content.

How to clean

Wipe with a clean, soft cloth and a mild dishwashing liquid and water, and then wipe away streaks with a clean, damp cloth. Treat stains with a paste of 3 parts baking soda to 1 part water; do not rub, as doing so could mar the surface. Wipe away paste with a clean, damp, soft cotton cloth, and then rinse with clean water. (Some stains, such as food dyes or coffee and tea stains, will not disappear right away, but may with repeated cleanings.)
