Design Options: Finishes for Laminate Countertops
Did you know that once you select the perfect color or pattern for your new laminate countertop, you can tailor it to your tastes by choosing between a number of finish options?
A traditional matte finish is ideal for hardworking surfaces. It enhances color by producing greater clarity and depth.
A textured or reflective finish —just as durable as a traditional matte finish—can bring additional realism to stone and granite patterns. Formica Corporation’s Premiumfx™ line offers finishes such as:
-Radiance™ - high gloss and punctuated with texture, featuring holographic facets that refract and reflect light.
-Etchings™ - softly polished, etched and dappled with highlights from tiny fissures reminiscent of those found in real granite and stone.
-Honed™ - low-sheen satin finish with subtle surface clefts and crevices that mimic softly brushed stone.
Please keep in mind not every laminate countertop pattern or color is available in every finish. Consult with your kitchen and bath retailer or formica.com for your options.
