Re: How to finish a laminate benchtop?

Hello @ceejaybee 


Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community. It's sensational to have you join us and thanks for sharing your question about your laminate benchtop.


If you are thinking about giving your benchtop a marble look using paint like the Dulux Renovation Range, I suggest having a look at this discussion - Marble-look benchtop using paint by @raceytrace. If you are thinking of applying this technique, I strongly suggest doing a test on a laminate off cut to familiarize yourself with the procedure.


However, you also have the option of just painting the surface in a single colour. There is of course the option of changing your laminate benchtop with a benchtop that has a marble laminate design such as the Kaboodle 38 x 600mm Compact Radius Calcutta Grey Customisable Benchtop. It can be ordered to the size of your current benchtop at your store's kitchen department.


Here is a handy step-by-step guide: How To Paint A Kitchen Benchtop
