What’s the difference between laminate and solid surface worktops?

The kitchen worktop you choose must suit the style and needs of your kitchen, and there is a large variety out there to choose from.

So... What’s the difference between laminate and solid surface worktops?

This is a common question we get asked, and we will love to give you a simple breakdown. These two materials seem similar to the naked eye, but they do have a difference.

Read on to find out.

What’s a Solid Surface kitchen worktop?

Solid surface worktops are solid right the way through. These are primarily made from quartz dust, polymers and various resin.

A really nice addition to a solid surface worktop is the ability to create many colours, shapes and patterns.

Commonly, most solid countertops are made to look like stone and marble, but the options can be endless.

What is a Laminate kitchen worktop?

Laminate worktops have a wooden core with sheets of thin veneer wrapped around it.

The laminate normally has a pattern printed on it to emulate an array of different shapes, colours and textures. This is a more cost-effective way to create and install the worktops. Still, the quality of the end product is clean and professional, which is why most households around the UK have them.
