Traditionally, we think of high-pressure laminate (commonly referred to as “Formica” or just “laminate”) as an inexpensive, run-of-the-mill, readily available surface, primarily applied to countertops. While this product is not only extremely durable, suitable for vertical and horizontal applications, it comes in a range of colors and styles that allows budget conscious customers to save. Although there has been great expansion in simulated textures and visuals over the past several years, customers looking for an option beyond stone and wood-looks have seen little hit the market.
Abet Laminati, an Italian-based company with warehouses in North America, offers a different take on high pressure laminates. Their extensive line ranges from semi-translucent patterns made to look like lace, to elaborately punched metal. Many finish options are available for solid color laminates as well.
They can even create custom silk-screened laminate surfaces, perfect for high-traffic and high-impact locations. While we would love to think that digital representations of these laminates suffice, but they are truly something to see in person! Stop by our store and browse our samples for your next project.
