I picked up the small samples at Lowes, then ordered several 5"x7" from the website Paul mentioned. Think I'll go to Home Depot this weekend and see if they've got something different.

Thanks for the reminder about the edge trim Jim!

The one we chose is this one: Tumbled Mosaic pattern / color of Wilsonart Laminate - 4893

We went into a builder's supply in Chilliwack and picked it out, then gave the information to Tammy.

That looks really nice Brian. I guess I didn't pay attention when I toured your trailer. Remind me to LOOK next time. I thought buyers could only choose from Formica brand? I have seen some I thought I'd like from Wilsonart. Hummm.

What I'd REALLY like is a Corian countertop with a double undermount sink. Doubt that will happen!

Really? I know they make laminate, but I thought Formica was a different brand/manufacturer? I have so much to learn....

I believe as long as they can get it in to their local supplier, you can choose any brand laminate. I know here in Calgary, almost all major brands are warehoused, and can be had in a day or two. Other than some fancy ones, 90% of all available laminates are within 20% cost of each other.

Maybe check with Tammy, you might find you have lots more selection, but having to deal with customers deciding on selections daily, sometimes having too many can be a real pain in getting them to choose just one thing.
