Step 3: Determine your Formica Countertop Cost

Formica® countertops are well liked by homeowners because they combine beauty and sophistication with affordability. A few factors can affect the price of Formica counters; read on to determine which selections work best for you. 


There are a variety of Formica® materials from which to choose: laminate, natural stone and solid surface. Your final cost is dependent on which material you select. Take a look at the Formica® materials selection to help determine which one best fits your needs and the way you use your kitchen. Formica laminate counters cost less than solid surface, which cost less than natural stone. 


Like with any other manufacturer, your choice of color will play a large part in the price of your Formica® countertops. Popular colors will cost you more, so you may want to consider choosing a less popular color that complements your existing kitchen design. By considering alternate color options, you may be able to save on the cost of your Formica® countertops.


When you buy new countertops, you often get them customized to fit your home’s unique design. Keep in mind that these alterations add additional costs onto your purchase and can quickly make your Formica countertops more expensive.


Some buyers consider personalizing their countertops through custom edge styles, which can raise the overall price of your countertops. From elaborate to simple styles, take a look at your options to find something that fits within your budget.
