Choosing a wood effect laminate kitchen worktop

The kitchen worktop is one of the most important parts of any kitchen. This is not only the place where the food preparation will occur, it is also an important visual aspect of your kitchen. Whether you use white, black or grey cabinets, the attention will naturally be drawn to your kitchen worktop. And choosing a wood effect laminate kitchen worktop can ensure both practicality and visually appeal. Here at Homematas, we are Preston’s leading kitchen design professionals, and this is our guide to everything you should know about wood effect laminate kitchen worktops.

What are the advantages of choosing a wood effect laminate kitchen worktop?

If you want to add natural style to your kitchen, you should consider a wood effect, laminate worktop. This type of kitchen worktop can bring a range of advantages, including:

  • Looks like real wood- wood effect worktops are designed to look just like real wood, like oak or walnut. Available in a range of shades and styles of wood, you can choose the colour and texture to match the rest of your kitchen style. This brings a natural element to your kitchen, and can become a key focal point in any home, traditional or contemporary.
  • Water-resistant- natural wood is not water-resistant. This means that installing a real wood worktop will lead to necessary maintenance and sealing on a regular basis to keep worktop protected and to keep this looking as it should. However, a wood effect laminate worktop is completely water-resistant, which means you can achieve the right look and texture of real wood, without the maintenance.
  • Durable and strong- all kitchen worktops need to be durable and strong, and wood effect laminate worktops are no exception. These are highly impact resistant, and are highly unlikely to be damaged by general use, or suffer from much wear and tear over time.
