Is It Time to Upgrade Your Countertop to Formica?

Take a look at your countertop. How old is it? Is it a gaudy remnant from the 1960s or 1970s? Does it have an awful color scheme or a dated floral pattern?

While countertops are often strong against wear and tear, they’re not meant to last forever. Here are some signs it’s time to replace that countertop and get a Formica one instead.

It’s stained

Depending on the color of your countertop, stains may be obvious or they may blend right in. Lighter colors will put that stain on display front and center, which is not what you want.

Whether it’s a stain from wine, cooking oil, food coloring, or even some mysterious foodstuff, it’s a part of your countertop now. You’ve tried everything you can to get the stain out, but nothing’s worked.

Why not treat yourself to a new Formica countertop that’s stain-free?

Chipping, deep scratches, and other damage

Even the nicest countertops, like those made of marble or another luxe material, are susceptible to damage. The edges of these can weaken over time and small pieces may chip or crack off. If you’re not careful when you’re cooking, you could cut a deep scratch into the surface with a knife.

Formica countertops are made of melamine, which is very durable. This material will hold up better to countertop wear and tear.

It’s just…ugly

If your kitchen countertop is about as old as you are, it’s okay to replace it because of looks alone. You should want to relax and spend time in your kitchen. With a Formica countertop, you can select from various colors and patterns to find the perfect match.
