Hi, posting for the first time here and thank you to anyone who reads/advises on this.

We have a laminate kitchen countertop, which has some burn marks due to a hot utensil being placed on it. I am trying to fix this so that the entire kitchen countertop does not need replacement. Any ideas would be welcome!!!

Thanks for your help,
Ro

Not a lot you can do really. You will never hide it but if you want to stop the laminate lifting then you would drill out the affected area and fill with a coloured resin. You can't do any of the repairs designed for solid wood or composite tops, it's the trade off for laminate.

Don't know if you can still get them, (they were never popular) but you can get an inset cutting board which would be ideal if the burns are in an appropriate place - they are usually also heat tolerant so can be used to put hot pans on too which is the source of the original problem.

Otherwise just put a cutting board/mat/whatever over the burns to hide them, (there's no way to repair laminate without it showing).

I was thinking https://www.dunelm.com/product/black-gr ... 1000009315

Following on from what Ayjay has said, this could be routered in and set into the worktop or just lay it on flat to hide the burns.

Thanks for the advice. Sounds like sticking a worktop saver on it is a good idea. I think i might use this

https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B078SZRT1F/

One more follow up. Any advice on how to stick it on the countertop? I want to stick it clean so at least it does not spoil the look of the kitchen and also doesnt ruin the laminate if i decide to take it off. But need something which will stick glass to laminate...

any ideas on this?

That will do it you do not need to stick it down as they have rubbery feet that stop slip. Alternatively router a shallow rebate into the worktop and drop it in flush to the surface, a bit more like it was designed that way.

Try MirrorMate. I've used it (a lot) to adhere stainless steel onto old tiles - although it did need the tiles to be thoroughly degreased first (Sugar Soap solution) as well as fix mirrors onto everything from plastered walls to gloss painted doors and a lot more besides (including laminated doors - so yes it can.....). One word of caution; MirrorMate is quite dense and so it is best applied using a heavy-duty caulking gun rather than a basic, lightweight skeleton gun

personally i would avoid routering the surface unless the cover has at least a 6mm lip all the way round
otherwise it has to be very exact shape with no gaps
also old laminate especially subject to high temperatures is far more likely to chip and de laminate often in big chunks :cb
