The Hard-to-Beat Functionality of Formica® Brand Laminate


Not only does Formica® Laminate help you achieve the design aesthetic you crave, but it also has major benefits over natural stones like marble.

Budget-friendly: Exotic marbles and other natural stones are notoriously expensive, which can be prohibitive for some renovation projects. Formica® Laminate is available at a fraction of the cost. 

Cleanliness: Although real marble is beautiful, the upkeep can get ugly. Its porous structure invites hard-to-remove stains that can mar the surface for years to come. Formica® Laminate is as durable as it is beautiful, with a non-porous structure that keeps hygiene and cleanliness front and center.

Ease of installation: Formica® Brand laminate is easy to install and can even be done as a DIY project if you’d prefer not to hire outside help. On the other hand, real marble means real dollars when it comes to installation.
