    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.

    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.

    Personnally I would go for either light grey (close to the stnl steel grey) or beige (like the paint) subway tiles for your splash back. Nothing that distracts from the beautifully dramatic countertops. What are you putting on the floor ?

    any updates from Formica Group on this? I am looking to have a 60/40 33" stainless steel apron sink with laminate countertop in an island... raised about 1/4 over the edge of the countertop to be 'top mount' style. is that an option or do I have to get butcherblock ?

    Hello. We do not recommend flush mount farm sinks but only drop-in
    styles with a flange. This allows installers to seal under the flange
    with copious amounts of caulk.

    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.

    Look at your mothers laminate. It's probably been down for years with no problems

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Floor idea for our kitchen. Contrast to all the wood.

    ID 12 Fall 2019 CECILIA XU added this to Plastic LaminateOct 20, 2019

    It is a thin veneer, it could be used on anywhere. It can be made by any color and pattern. It also can make a fake quartz feeling, but much cheaper

    17. Plastic Laminate: 4 The printed stone on this laminate is very nice and very realistic only the pros would know.
