These sheets, backed by layers of kraft paper, come in two grades: thick, for horizontal surfaces like counters, tables, and desktops; and thin, for vertical walls, panels, and cabinet doors. Both kinds are usually glued to particleboard.

To find out where sheets—and prefab counters and panels with backing already adhered—are sold, go to manufacturer websites, such as Formica Group and Wilsonart.
