On the "con" side, durability can be an issue with laminate countertops. They can scratch and dent, and if they feature top surfaces that have been glued on, peeling can occur. In addition, hot curling irons or other appliances can scorch a laminate surface. That said, laminate bathroom countertops tend to be a practical and durable option, particularly for families with high-traffic bathrooms.

With regard to style, laminate countertops can mimic the look of higher-end materials like granite or even wood, simply by applying a veneer to the surface that approximates the natural material, at a fraction of the cost.
