Laminate or Natural Stone? Which should I choose for kitchen counters?
When it comes to kitchen counters, the most popular choices are granite, marble and quartz. While natural stones like granite and marble and engineered stones like quartz have their advantages, they also have their drawbacks. They are difficult to install, expensive and require high maintenance.
This is where, laminates come into the picture. Laminate is a budget-friendly countertop that offers an array of benefits. Premium laminate products as offered by Décor Luxury Stones provide a stylish, practical and high-performance product for your kitchen, making them an excellent alternative to natural stone.
In this guide, we compare the top features of laminates and natural stones and help you evaluate which is the best choice for your kitchen countertop.
Everyone loves to have a beautiful kitchen – that feels warm and welcoming. While natural stones look good, they are limited in the colours and patterns. Laminates, on the other hand, are a manmade material available in an assortment of colours, designs and patterns. So, irrespective of your kitchen style, you can find a laminate counter that matches your design preferences.
Thanks to the advances in laminate printing technology, today laminates can mimic the aesthetic of other popular materials like natural stone and wood. Yes, you can have a laminate counter that looks just like a hardwood kitchen counter. How cool is that? If you have always dreamt of a dreamy farmhouse style kitchen in wood, but worried about the difficulties of maintaining wood, then you can go for premium wooden-style laminates.
Not just wood, our laminate collection also has patterns that resemble other materials like natural stones. So, you can now have a beautiful kitchen without spending tens of thousands of rupees on expensive materials like granite, marble or wood.

At Décor Luxury Stones, we have laminates in a variety of textures like matte, glossy, soft, extra soft, roche and many more. You can choose your preferred texture to create a realistic replication of other materials like wood and stone.
