Some natural looking patterns and colors of the laminates are purpose-manufactured to resemble slate granite or other stones albeit at a small fraction of the expense while a few others flaunt extensive veins producing the appearance of mineral salts traversing through the design. One can find a wide range of affordable options in many established countertop manufacturers in GTA greater Toronto area and other global markets worldwide.

accessories such as an insulated hot pad or a trivet should always be used to safeguard the laminate from thermal damage. An occasional slip for an insignificant amount of time is tolerable provided the temperature of the article in question does not cross the stipulated thermal threshold of 275 0 F as mentioned before. However allowing the laminate to remain exposed to heat for long could make it de-attach from the substrate to which the material is bonded or it could even cause the laminate to melt. A scorch mark usually appears on a laminate when an individual is found to place a hot utensil on its surface. To suffice if anything seems a little too hot for setting on one’s hand then it is likely to be pretty hot for placing directly on the laminate surface.  Never use the laminate as a replacement for a cutting board Though laminate is known to be pretty robust for general use it could be cut with a typical kitchen knife inflicting damage to the superficial veneer and exposing the brown layer underneath. Hence the end users should always remember not to use their laminate countertops as cutting boards. CONCLUSION To summarize laminate countertops are durable affordable and not impervious. They continue to remain an excellent choice for the present day homeowners and could potentially last for several decades without any issues of discoloration provided one takes appropriate care as discussed above.
