Finishes come in far more realistic imitations now with texture and depth – stone, wood, concrete, granite and marble effects.
Laminate is very durable in terms of stain and scratch resistance; but be careful near water, heat and steam. If water gets into the joints and seeps into the core, then the worktop will blow and edging can start to delaminate. On the plus side, it is cheap to replace if you get any damages.
Laminates are easy to clean and are very low maintenance. They can be installed quickly by a kitchen fitter rather than a worktop expert.
