Can you under-mount the sink with Formica, how about heat resistance?

Hi, there. It is possible to undermount a sink with laminate! Check out our blog post about it: http://bit.ly/LvvR6J ... Karran is the manufacturer of the undermount sinks for laminate and would be your best resource for more information. (We link to them and show their video in our blog post!). Formica® Laminate is resistant to scratches and impact under normal use conditions. Lengthy exposure to temperatures over 140* F (60* C) may cause the laminate to separate from the core material. We recommend utilizing a trivet or hot-pad when setting any hot objects directly on laminate surfaces.

I was just going to say, the only sink brand that I know that can be mounted under neath a formica top is Karran. :) Formica Group beat me to it!

The counter tops are beautiful. How do you do the edge so it doesn't look like the old 70's laminates? It looks seamless.

Yes, a square edge will show the brown seam, and those brown seams will be more visible with a light-colored countertop. We’ve read about tricks that some have used to eliminate that brown line (Sharpie, paint, etc.) Although we’re not endorsing any of these fixes, here’s a blog post in which a woman shows the process of eliminating the brown seam in her Calacatta Marble 180fx® countertop: http://bit.ly/19B6wSm Our new IdealEdge™ profiles will eliminate the brown seams, but those do not have the “squared” look you’re seeking. If you haven’t considered a postformed edge treatment, check out the options from VT Industries, specifically, Marbella and Ora: http://bit.ly/1igA21B

Hi Jennifer, yes you can use Formica® laminate for the countertop and for the backsplash. Check out an example using our Slate Sequoia 180fx® here: http://bit.ly/134Afl9 (second picture from the bottom).

I don't know the specific name - but it's the only laminate product that I know that mimics the look of Calacatta Marble. Not bad for a laminate!!! And, a whole lot cheaper than the real thing. So......check it out! I saw it at Lowes.

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.

Thanks for your inquiry. As this is a real homeowner's kitchen (versus a staged kitchen for a photo shoot), we don't outfit the kitchen with cabinets, lighting, flooring, etc. We can sometimes track down answers to questions about other products. We'll be sure to respond to this thread if we're able to track down the information.

Since this is a photo of a Formica kitchen (Yes, those counters are laminate) I'd be willing to bet that they had these shelves fabricated using Formica-brand DecoMetal laminate

what is the formica edge finish on these countertops
   Comment   March 24, 2013

What Houzz contributors are saying:

What looks for all the world like a marble counter is actually a laminate from Formica. Laminates have come a very long way. If you're in the market for new counters, the new laminates are definitely worth a look.
The basics: Plastic laminate countertops consist of a wafer-thin finish adhered to a plywood or particleboard substrate. That thin finish is a high-pressure laminate (HPL); it's made of three layers of material bonded together by high heat and pressure: a clear melamine top for protection, a decorative layer and a backing made of phenolic resin-coated kraft paper. Well-known laminate manufacturers include Formica, Wilsonart and Nevamar.Costs: $8 to $20 per square foot, including installation.

Plastic laminate. Pros- looks nice, good price, durability is okay to an extent. Cons- can be expensive if you're applying in a large space, plastic isn't always a quality choice. You would find this flooring in a kitchen. Very popular
