I can't get any answer from the wife here. What say you guys on the color of the laminate. Here's the three choices before it gets too expensive. These are off the shelf. The wood is the cabinet color and here's the floor as well.

While it comes down to your personal taste, from a design perspective, you want a color that pulls from it's surroundings while at the same time provides some contrast... because your wall colors are light, out of the three, the one on the right covers it from all angles while still giving you contrast, and the left and and center blend with less contrast, so it depends on your personal taste... while all three colors work for various reasons, the contenders from a design perspective are right, left and then center... but again, it comes down to your personal taste as you have to live with it...

Think of it this way... your cap color is contrasting accent... so what color will compliment it...

Now for breakfast (gotta' involve some bacon)...

OK...

I've given you a design perspective and included it's up to your taste... your call... you have to live with it...

Any one of them will look good from here...

BTW, it's a simple top and you might want to consider just making it yourself... gives you much more elegant edge options (laminate of different profile, solid-surface, wood, etc.) as well as decision on where you place the seam, and based on the level of cabs you seem to have chosen a post-form top look might be considered a down-grade... much easier to seam also...

Or go buy some post-forms and struggle with them...

Again, your tastes, your house...

It was a simple color question. That's it.

Also the cabinets are the contrasting accent and in this case are the same as the cap.

Your questions denote different...

When you don't know how to "splice a couple counters together" or the tooling involved and ask for "tips" and then get them, sometimes Cali, a simple thanks for the info goes a long way...

But you of course can do whatever it is you want... you have to live with it...

It already looks great from here...


Enjoy your new office...

I never said I don't know how to splice a countertop. I asked for any tips. That's it simple as that.

In fact I was the first one who brought up the hardware to do with. Tom gave me better hardware from fastcap. Exactly what I was phishing for.
