Lam­i­nate coun­ters, made of plas­tic­coated syn­thet­ics, are man­u­fac­tured by sev­eral com­pa­nies, in­clud­ing Formica, Ne­va­mar, and Ar­borite. They’ve come a long way over the past decade, and boast thou­sands of looks, in­clud­ing tex­tures sim­i­lar to leather, mar­ble and gran­ite.

Lam­i­nate to­day is not the lam­i­nate of even 10 years ago, says Aviva BenChoreen, a de­signer with Lau­ry­sen Kitchens Ltd. There are new tex­tures, there are new colours. It’s no longer just a fine polka-dot, or some­thing that looks like gran­ite, says Ben-Choreen. You can now get things that look like slate, feel like slate. There are some re­ally beau­ti­ful and wild colours avail­able.

Cost-ef­fi­cient, easy to clean and avail­able in a va­ri­ety of colours.
