Is it time for Countertop Replacement?
The kitchen has become the most active room in the average American home. It’s much more than a place to prepare meals… it’s a room for family gathering, entertaining, homework, crafts, sometimes it’s office space – it is a room for living. But does your kitchen reflect your personal style? Is it fashionable? It can be!
If you haven’t remodeled in years, you might consider a complete kitchen makeover – but often that comes with a costly price tag. Have you thought about replacing only your countertops? Countertops can be the most attention-grabbing visual in your kitchen, and a significant source of color, texture and design to modernize your space and give you the look and feel of a much more extensive renovation.
Laminate Countertops can be a great bargain when compared to other surfacing materials like solid surface or granite and offers hundreds of up-to-date colors and patterns to choose from to complement any decorating style. You can choose laminates that offer the look of stone, wood, marble or concrete for a fraction of the price of the real thing. Technological improvements in laminate printing processes have given today’s laminate the appearance of incredible depth and dimension, offering more durability another element of luxury to consumers.

You’ll be amazed by the options; many of which are designed to capture the uniqueness of natural stone. We love them! However, like stone, they may have non-repeating and/or directional patterns. What you need to know is that these laminates will have visible seams as incongruous laminates come together. The seam itself will be of the highest quality; however, we encourage you to consider how your dream pattern will look not just on surface area of the top but also at the seams and corners.
