    Pluses outweigh the minuses of these two: appropriate for kitchen, bath, or bar, non-believers are semi-converted to the concept of renovation instead of “updating”, and as Pam said, available and $$$.
    Minuses: they are tied to a certain few decades which, if that’s your home, YEA!
    I’ve only just started researching a laminate to replace the seafoam green ’70’s pattern bull-nose on which the previous owners used knives and scratched in several places. My preference is “butcher block” since it updates without being inappropriate to the value of the house but would consider other colors/patterns.
    I don’t know which is more frustrating: looking for something you can’t find ANYthing of or being boggled by what’s all available.

    Hello, I have Betty laminate in my kitchen and retro renovation gray boomerang in one of my bathrooms. We purchased from Lowe’s last year, when we renovated our mcm. We live in Temple Texas home of Wilson Art. I had to go with a Wilson Art laminate. I highly recommend them both. I have two small kiddos and I have had no problems with the kitchen or bath laminate. They look fantastic! If you are considering either I say go for it!! They are so fun and definitely retro! Fitting for an mcm!

    By the way Pam. Everyone that has seen your retro renovation laminate thinks it is original to the house. I’m loving it!

    As I said below I highly recommend Wilson Art laminate. All of the retro patterns are so cool. I was afraid with small kids it would get marked up easily. However they have far exceeded our expectations. I have a lot of the Betty laminate in my kitchen. A whole island even. We use it everyday and it doesn’t have a mark on it. Everything has wiped up with ease. The same for the retro renovation laminate in the bath. It is our boys bathroom/ hall bath. It looks fantastic and everyone loves it!
    Our laminate was easy to order. The gentlemen that helped us order both were loving it. As they mostly see granite and solid surface ordered today. It did take a bit to get in. We were working on other parts of our house so it was not a problem for us. It was well worth the wait! The price is great as well. I especially loved for us that it was Wilson Art, being made in Temple. Also living in a home built by Charlie Voelter whom was friends with Ralph Wilson we felt like we had go for it and put laminate everywhere!
    If you are trying to renovate and stay true to your homes time period. These Wilson Art retro laminates are so fantastic!

    Danna, I have WilsonArt in my kitchen also, a pattern no longer available called, I think, “Green Nile.” It has a linen-like visual texture. Unlike much more expensive stone (marble, granite) it hasn’t stained in the 7 years we’ve had it. I’m talking as a gal who loves beets and wine and has stained many other surfaces. 🙂

    Even when you have to special order this laminate, it is so much more inexpensive than any other countertop surface.

    Stopped in at Kohler THD and sure enough, they even have sample tags displayed for the butcherblock, AND her eyes lit up when I mentioned Betty & Endora! Then we sorta went down the rabbit hole looking at samples…
    I feel like kind of a dope because as soon as you mentioned Formica, all I needed was “a little push” (Admiral from “Get Smart”)
