How to finish laminate around sink? - I want to flush-mount a farmhouse sink in a laminate counter just like you show here. The counter fabricator doesn't know what to do (they're afraid of not sealing up the laminate well enough). Is there documentation about how to do this that I could point them to? Or can you recommend counter people in Sioux Falls, SD that have experience with this? Thank you!! (Love the 180fx!)

Thanks. Would it be possible to just seal the substrate close to the sink before adding the Formica?

Hi, again. I asked our design team to weigh in on the Blue Storm/black cabinet combination. "While everything depends on personal preference and kitchen layout, space, etc., if they're concerned about the room feeling too dark, we would suggest a gray cabinet as an alternative to black." If you are set on black cabinets and seeking alternative options to lighten the space, here are the design's team suggestions: 3466 Antique Mascarello, 3420 Dolce Vita, 3460 Calacatta Marble, 3458 Travertine Silver. Attached are swatches for each, and you can order free samples at www.formica.com. Any would look stunning with black cabinetry! Attached is also the Blue Storm "3467" swatch. You can upload it (and any of the other swatches) to www.letschipit.com to see the palattes!

OMG! I am so glad to see your post! I am posting some pictures for you. There are a bunch on Formica's face book page and I will find the link for you right now. I went to the contractors shop and he laid out the 5' x 12' sheets for me to see. I was able to use painter's tape and choose where each counter "section" came from.

Thanks for the inquiry. Unfortunately, we don't have information on all of the features of this kitchen as this is a real homeowner's house and not a staged kitchen we created for our product photography. If our designers can find out what floor material was used here, we’ll post it on this discussion thread. Thanks again for reaching out.

Gerri Chmiel, our senior design manager for Formica North America, weighed in. I’m pasting her response below:

“Wow, there are so many options. First, I wonder if they have a more contemporary or traditional kitchen. A subway tile in a lighter color found in the Blue Storm could work for either contemporary or traditional – white, light gray and even the gold might look nice with black cabinets. Just be mindful of other backsplash options getting too busy with the Blue Storm … glass tile could easily do this, especially if it is tiny or multi-colored.

The homeowner could also use the Blue Storm as a backsplash and go all the way up to the bottom of the upper cabinets for a more European look. This look is starting to gain more popularity beyond just white marble and is happening more and more with other stones.

This is a real homeowner's kitchen we shot about four years ago. We don't outfit the kitchen with cabinets, etc., for the photoshoot, but I'll check with the appropriate folks within Formica and will respond to this thread if we're able to track down the information.

How do you protect laminate countertops and flooring?

Plastic laminate is usually used for counters, cabinets, and wall panels (backsplashes in commercial applications). It is not usually used as a flooring.

Plastic laminate is durable under most conditions. It can burn so hot pots and pans shouldn't go directly on it. It also can chip or scratch with heavy impact, especially near corners and seams. Also try not to leave large puddles of water standing for long at seams, as the adhesive can loosen, and water can seep below - eventually causing delamination.

Also take care not to use abrasive cleaners and scouring pads when cleaning. A soft cloth and multi-surface spray is sufficient for cleaning.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

This looks like stone doesn't it? Well it's not. It's a new high-definition laminate from Formica. In person, this laminate has a glittering, prismatic effect that makes it look even more like natural stone than it does in this photo.
