Why Are Formica Countertops Sought After?

Visual Appeal

Formica is a visually appealing material, and these days there are plenty of styles to choose from. What's better is that with this material, you can get an attractive surface without paying a high cost. Materials like granite, quartz, and marble can be several times more expensive than laminate in some cases, yet many often mistake Formica laminate for another kind of high-end material.

Easy to Clean & Maintain

Laminate surfaces are also easy to maintain. Because they're non-porous, you don't have to worry about liquids and food spills affecting them. Moreover, when these get damaged, they can be repaired easily. And with Formica laminate, there's no resealing required, which is what you’d have to do for a natural stone countertop. Just make sure you don't use harsh cleaning products, like bleach, when you're cleaning a Formica countertop.


Formica is also a stain-resistant material, and therefore it’s ideal for those who know they're going to be encountering food spills often. In other words, it’s a first choice for parents of young children. And if you install a Formica countertop, you're essentially cooking with a stain-proof surface. Such a setup is quite beneficial for those who are learning how to cook.


Laminate can also be used to create backsplashes. Furthermore, laminate is not just a material for the kitchen, as it can be used to construct bathroom vanities as well.
