If you have white Formica....

...would you do it again? I am leaning towards white but worried about how it will hold up over time (due to scratches, stains, etc.).

If you have white Formica....

I'd go with what you like. Formica is pretty durable, and regardless of the color, you should use a cutting board anyway when doing anything that could cause scratches.

The other thing is that your trailer countertops don't have to take the beating that your home kitchen ones do. With reasonable care, the countertop should look great for many years.

Hi Linda

We had white countertops at our cottage and they held up great, didn't show scratches and were easy to keep clean. That aside like Robert said go with what you like.

Cheers
Doug

Just about all the interior (all the while) in my Boler is white Formica, it is great easy to clean, no stains, no scratches, very durable. Trust me the Boler gets a lot more wear and tear compared to our Escape

And if you do have any trouble with stains, just use Barkeeper's Friend. It's the best for so many cleaning issues.

Thank you, Buttercup has been a 4 year labour of love and obsession. but please let's not hijack this thread away from the original poster.
Come to the Prairie Egg Gathering in July, I will have Buttercup there. Also if plans work out we will also bring it to the 2017 Escape customer appreciation event in Osoyoos

We have white formica in our 21. So far, so good. No problems. We picked white because that is what we like for counter tops. We agonized for a while about what color to get in the trailer. Then we realized that we had been through this before when we remodeled the kitchen in our house. We found the formica shade that matched the corian coutertops we had put in the house years before and still liked. We don't have the house anymore, but, we still have our white coutertops.
