I finally chose which laminate countertops to go with for the kitchen facelift: Formica’s Calcutta Marble in gloss. I ordered many samples from Home Depot and I think they look wonderful in person. They offer it in “gloss” and “etched” finishes. I ordered samples of both and to be honest, the etched didn’t do anything for me. I felt the gloss option looked more like a true, glossed marble. I am a tad nervous that it might look a little too glossy when I get them installed but I wasn’t concerned enough to not order them.
There was also a “Carrara” Marble option but that had quite a bit more gray, so I stuck with the Calacutta.
They should be installed in a couple weeks!! Yay!! Here is a picture of the sample.
I plan on writing a review on the countertops after they are installed. My goal is to have the cabinets 100% finished by then-hopefully....
I’ll keep you posted!
