Since laminate countertop is becoming an increasingly popular choice, it is hard to find someone knowledgeable about the material to help you choose the right material. The answers to your questions will depend on what you intend to use the laminate for. For example, if you are going to use it for a bistro-type kitchen with bar-height cabinets and bar-style table and chairs, you might want to choose a laminate with a harder gloss and matte finish that will resist scratches. If you want to install a wood-burning stove, however, you may want to consider using a laminate with a medium gloss. Another factor that will influence your decision is the type of wood you intend to use on your butcher block laminate countertop.
Wood fires often cause smoke and soot to be reflected onto the laminate surfaces. To minimize this problem, you can paint the laminate surfaces with an electrostatic charge. However, since you still have to deal with the moisture issue, a wood-burning stove should be avoided. By choosing laminate over wood-burning appliances, you will reduce your fuel costs, keep your kitchen looking great and save valuable floor space. With a well-designed laminate countertop, you can transform any kitchen into a modern and stylish one.
There are some important considerations when choosing a laminate counter top for your kitchen. First, check if laminate comes in different thicknesses and grain patterns. Depending on what you need the laminate for, you will need to choose a countertop with the right texture. When choosing a laminate countertop, it is important to choose one with a high gloss that will show the beauty of the wood, but which will also resist staining. The thickness of the laminates varies, from six inches to twelve inches, and the choices range from three inches to seven inches.
Another consideration is the look and feel of the laminate countertop. Some laminate countertops are made from real wood, while others are made from synthetic materials. You may want to choose one that compliments the overall design and structure of your kitchen. Some people may prefer a dark finish, while others may prefer a lighter one. As a general rule, the heavier the laminate countertop, the more solid it will be. Lighter laminate countertops may sound nice, but they can often be wobbly when you are using them for cutting or for other tasks.
There are many more factors that will affect your choice of a laminate countertop. The first few times you will be using it in your kitchen, you may not have time to go back and forth to the hardware store to find the best laminate options for your butcher block. However, after a couple of uses, you will probably have enough idea about what looks best. Of course, you should consult with a knowledgeable salesperson who can help you choose the best one for your kitchen. If you do your homework ahead of time, you can find a laminate countertop that is just right for your butcher block.
