Laminate countertops are probably the most popular kitchen countertop. It’s a synthetic material consisting of several layers. The layers are made of multiple sheets of kraft paper, a decorative paper and a melamine plastic coating. Solid-color laminate is also on the market and is made of a colored plastic throughout. Expect to pay anywhere from $5 to $20 for standard laminate countertops.
Laminate countertops offer many wonderful benefits to consumers. For starters, they are available in hundreds of colors and patterns with a variety of finishes. In fact, some of the designs are made to resemble the look of hardwood, natural stone, and solid surface countertops. In addition to the virtually endless design styles, laminate is also easy to maintain, impact resistant, and reasonably priced.
