Durable countertops mimic natural materials without the maintenance
Natural finishes are always popular, but they typically require a lot of maintenance. With new laminate finishes from Formica, it's easy to bring a touch of nature into any kitchen.
At the the 2016 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show, Kate Fortlage, senior brand manager at Formica, reviewed the latest trends in laminated and the new Timberworks pattern.
The Timberworks pattern is part of a collection of laminate patters inspired by natural materials. Timberworks is a unique pattern created by blending strips of different reclaimed wood species, grains and colors, Fortlage noted.
“The 2016 Formica Laminate Residential Collection offers homeowners on-trend surfacing that is durable to withstand everyday messes and events, affordable to fit into family budgets, and designed to complement homes and styles of all kinds,” she said.
Each home in the Latitude project was designed to provide a low-maintenance, energy-efficient lifestyle.
