If you've been waiting for better economic times to make some upgrades to your home, you're not alone. But when you can no longer ignore the "need to nest", it's best to consider affordable and eye-catching options that will instantly bring renewed life into your home. Upgrading one's kitchens always seems daunting, yet there are changes that you can make that will have a big impact - countertops, for example. They represent 30% of the color in any kitchen, so an upgrade can make a profound statement.


We're thrilled to be teaming up with Wilsonart® laminates to talk about ">Wilsonart® HD® High Definition® surfaces. We couldn't believe that a brand new laminate countertop can be installed within a few hours and without major disruptions to family life. So consider swapping out your tired, scratched or stained counter surface with one made from the latest generation of premium laminates, and start to nest in style!

Why ">Wilsonart® HD® High Definition® Surfaces

Laminate countertops are a smart option for a variety of reasons - they're easy to care for, easy to install, and easy on your wallet. Throw away any preconceived notions you have about the bold colors and gold-flecked countertops of old-style laminates - today's options are clean, modern, and eyecatching. And with Wilsonart's® AEON™ Enhanced Performance technology, these surfaces bring four times the scuff and scratch-resistance of conventional laminate, as well as five times the wear resistance to the surface. And unlike granite, they are non-porous and never need to be sealed.

A wide range of stone-inspired looks, rich finishes and new fabrication techniques make these surfaces perfect for today's hectic lifestyle. So choose from hundreds of colorful surfaces, determine the edge profile that complements your style, and even consider an integrated sink for a fully seamless and modern look. Making a bold improvement to your kitchen has never been easier!

Want some more remodeling ideas that will have a high impact at a reasonable budget?


  • Replace your old refrigerator with an energy-efficient model. Look in the big box stores for floor models or even those with a little dent on the side, which never will be seen.
  • Refresh your cabinets with a coat of paint using one of the easy-to-use refinishing kits especially for wood. And change all the cabinet hardware in the process.
  • Swap out your old ceiling light fixture and install under cabinet lighting as well. A little light can make a dramatic difference.
  • Change your sink. Consider a Wilsonart® HD® integrated sink with your new countertop. These sinks were designed to be integrated with a laminate surface.
