1. Add some creativity to home offices and student home school spaces…laminate countertops and writable surfaces by Formica can make task lists fun.

Less mess than Chalkboard paint! Get creative with solid surface materials for walls, cabinets, countertops great for bedrooms, home offices and wall splashes. Use Chalk pens or dry erase to decorate or change your message daily.

2. Solid Surface that looks like Real Wood to add visual texture to the rustic meets crisp line designs.

Exotic wood looks for countertops that can offer a better price point and less maintenance than Butcher Block tops. For example Formica and Corian products both offer these type of looks.

3. Dress up your cabinets with details at the BACK of your cabinets!

Artistic wallpaper or laminate inside the cabinet with no doors or glass doors can add a pop of detail in an inexpensive way without committing to a whole wall backsplash.
