Remodeling a laundry room is not that different from remodeling a kitchen and professional kitchen remodeling services can help you with either. Like kitchens, laundry rooms benefit greatly from plenty of counter space and, just like kitchens, these counters must be able to work well in a high humidity environment. It makes sense, therefore, that the same guidelines for choosing a kitchen countertop material can also help you find good products for a laundry room.
Homeowners tend to choose counters based largely on appeal. This is certainly an important part of the remodeling process but it’s equally important to consider other factors when choosing countertops. Here are a few tips from our experts at The Kitchen Store to help get your search started.
Your kitchen remodeling expert may suggest different materials while you’re planning out a laundry room remodel. One of the most popular materials you may come across is laminate. The biggest advantage of laminate countertops is their affordability. This can be a game-changer especially when you’re remodeling a particularly large laundry room. Unfortunately, they are not heat-resistant, which could be bad news if you intend to use hot irons or presses after washing your clothes.
Solid Surface Countertops
Solid surface is the common name for acrylic or polyester countertops. These materials are more durable than laminates but they do share the same weakness for heat. Additionally, solid surface counters require special installation, which could translate to higher labor costs.
Quartz and Engineered Stone
Consider getting engineered stone countertops to match an equally luxurious kitchen cabinet refacing project in your laundry room. This material offers excellent durability, longevity, and resistance to many common problems. Of course, they are also one of the most expensive materials available. Considering they offer plenty of benefits, their cost shouldn’t be too much of a problem for homeowners who value quality.
