Textures for Woodgrain Laminates

Texture is a defining characteristic of natural wood. When selecting woodgrain laminate, there are two textures that will add realism to the look and feel of the surface. Complementing a woodgrain pattern with just the right finish will add warmth and distinction to any space.

Natural Grain (-NG)

With low luster and medium pore design, this even-textured woodgrain finish adds just the right amount of expression to your surface.


Wide Planked Oak-9479

Pure Grain (-PG)

The textured straight-grain pattern of this finish adds dimension and depth to standard-range woodgrain patterns. It’s ideal for oaks, ashes and other woodgrains with strong character and graining.


Planked Coffee Oak-7413 

Textures for Stone Laminates 

High-resolution scanning technology makes it possible to achieve the drama of exotic marble, premium stones and quartz on laminate surfaces. There are three definitive textures available for stone laminates that create looks similar to what can be achieved with more expensive options.

Monolith (-ML)

This large-scale flowing pattern offers an authentic stone feel combined with a matte visual that doesn’t repeat in a sheet of laminate.


Taj Mahal-9922

Scovato™ (-34)

This finish creates a low-gloss visual through its lightly textured, smooth-to-the-touch quality, evoking the appearance of honed stone.

Slate Noir

Slate Noir-3711

Etchings™ (-46)

This softly polished and etched surface is dappled with highlights from tiny fractures and fissures reminiscent of those found in natural granite and stone.


Ivory Kashmire-6226

Universal Textures

These finishes are available across the entire line of solid color Formica® Laminate. Using depth and light, these textures deepen the appearance of color and pattern, elevating the final look. They can create sophisticated mattes and versatile, hand-rubbed qualities — and there is one designed exclusively for 180fx® Laminate.

Matte (-58)

This is our core texture available on all patterns, solids and woodgrains. It imparts a warm, pleasing effect that enhances the beauty of color and produces great clarity and depth for any application.

Jatoba Green-9920

SatinTouch™ (-11)

Exclusive to the 180fx® Laminate Collection, this luxe matte texture features a silky, smooth-to-the-touch feel. This option enriches select designs with a sleek feel and understated sheen.

Ferro Grafite-9483

Artisan™ (-43)

Reminiscent of the hand-rubbed, oiled finish craftsmen use to produce fine wood surfaces, this texture is ideal for any pattern, wood or stone selection.


Sahara Noir-9921 

Textures for Writable Surfaces

Formica® Writable Surfaces enable you to personalize any space in your home. These stylish options can give you and your family a blank canvas for doodles, notes and more, with the added benefit of being easy to maintain.

Gloss (-90)

The Gloss finish is ideal for applications that require maximum smoothness and light reflection. Use it to turn any Formica® Laminate into a dry-erase surface to add writable functionality to walls, cabinet doors and tabletops.
