Updating your kitchen or bathroom, but don’t have the thousands of dollars needed for expensive stone counter tops? Consider going with laminate instead. It used to be that laminate or Formica counters were ugly and cheap looking, however there are many styles and finishes currently available that will make your kitchen or bath look sleek and modern – for a fraction of the price of granite or quartz. Another plus is that it is relatively easy to install and well within the scope of most DIYers. Watch the video below from Lowes.com to learn how you can install Laminate countertops yourself.
