Happy New Year! On to projects for 2009!
I am looking for any & all advice/comments. We have formica countertop & unfortunately, but predictably, there are burns and the counter is marred next to the cooktop. I have used a large spoon rest to hide for a while & I am now considering options.
We cannot afford to replace all the countertop at this time.
I have read about cutting a square in the formica & inserting some type of insert; if we go this route I am leaning towards quartz. Does anyone have such a cutout/insert? It seems to me that somehow we would need to either border the cutout or fabricate the stone to allow for a "lip" that would sit on the counter; otherwise you would see where the cutout was made.
I am also considering completely replacing the entire length of countertop in that area, which would require more counterop & be more expensive. It is the most used section of the kitchen.
If you need more info to visualize let me know; all suggestions are welcomed.
