What is laminate?

Formica laminate was invented at the turn of the century. It’s a composite material which comes with a wide range of lithoprinted designs such as simulated granite, wood grain and silestone on the laminate top coating. 

It is heat-resistant, water-resistant and easy to wipe-clean, making it a popular choice for kitchens and bathroom surfaces.

Why choose laminate?

Due to its multi-layered construction it is a useful material for high traffic areas where a hardwearing surface is required. It is also a more cost effective solution to real wood veneer and easier to look after, with virtually no maintenance.  Although the arrival of pre-veneered boards has lessened its popularity.
