How to paint laminate countertops?

Hi everyone! Last weekend we painted our kitchen cupboards and changed the door handles, but left the countertops. Which brand is best for painting countertops? is it gloss or semi gloss? Has anyone attempted to paint the faux marble? Any suggestions with colours is appreciated 😊

Re: laminate countertops

Hi @julzdiy,


A great place to start is to check out these guides, which include a list of materials and step-by-step instructions:


How To Paint A Kitchen Benchtop With Dulux



Let me also tag our resident D.I.Y. expert @EricL who will be able to help with any extra questions you may have when he's back on the site over the weekend.


The cupboards and handles look great. We'd love to see more of your kitchen refresh if you have any extra photos to share.

Re: How to paint laminate countertops?

Hello @julzdiy


It's great that you've received fantastic advice from @StevieB. Her recommendation is spot on and should provide you with the necessary steps to paint your benchtop. There are several types of Benchtop Paint and come in different finishes from gloss to satin. I recommend visiting your local store and have a look at the benchtop finishes sample board. It sounds like a great project, any updates you can provide while renovating your benchtop would be much appreciated.


If need further assistance with this project, please let us know.
