Latest Trends in Laminate Counters!

Sure- I get it- everyone wants granite or quartz nowadays, but let’s be realistic.  Not everyone can afford a natural stone option, not to mention that trends change every day.  The investment of granite or quartz is something that will add value to your home right now- but might not be a future buyer’s preference when you go to sell.  If you are on the fence you should be reassured that laminates have come a long way!  You can get a great look that you’ll love today and is easy enough to swap out tomorrow if you want to update or upgrade!  Here are some of my favorites right now-

Faux Stone- done right!

These laminates from the Formica brand have a realistic granite pattern without trying too hard.  Pictured below is the color White Ice.  It looks great in a bathroom with dark cabinets and shiny chrome accents.  The bright white pops and gives this faux look a rich feel!

Back in Black!

When grey and white just won’t cut it- try black!  This looks especially sharp when paired with warmer woods, that feature the redder brown undertones.

It has been a common trend to use a deep laminate like Wilsonart Oiled Soapstone as the perimeter laminate in a kitchen with a busy granite island.  This allows the eye to break from the pattern and even add a more intricate backsplash into the scheme.
