Rust-Oleum Specialty Countertop Coating Vernon Hills, IL - Every homeowner wants a dream kitchen, but not everyone has a dream budget. That’s why Rust-Oleum Specialty Countertop Coating, an easy-to-use, budget-friendly coating that’s available in 16 neutral and earth tone shades, has become a popular alternative for homeowners who want to update the look of their laminate countertops at a fraction of the cost of replacement. Now, Rust-Oleum is giving homeowners who prefer the elegance and drama of dark, rich countertop colors even more options with Rust-Oleum Specialty Countertop Coating Deep Tint Base. With the new countertop tint base, homeowners can select from 10 dark colors -- Black; Midnight; Acorn (dark brown); Clay (dark brown/gray); Granite; Storm (dark gray/black); Arbor (dark green); Hunter Green; Spice (dark red) and Terra Cotta – to express their unique style and creativity. “While neutrals are still the most popular colors for kitchen countertops, we have been getting more and more requests for dark colors like black, dark gray, dark brown and terra cotta. And, we listened,” said Jenny Thavenet, assistant brand manager for Rust-Oleum Specialty Paints. “Our new tint base is a fantastic budget-friendly option for transforming an old, tired laminate countertop into a beautiful focal point in any kitchen or bath.” Requiring the same amount of skill it takes to paint a wall, Rust-Oleum Specialty Countertop Coating Deep Tint Base is easily applied using a basic foam roller and produces a smooth, washable finish that is stain and chemical resistant. The durable coating is made to last and stands up to daily wear and tear. It contains HomeShield Antimicrobial Protection to protect the painted surface by inhibiting the growth of mold and mildew and other odor and stain causing microbes so it’s ideal for use in any high humidity area. Like the “original” Rust-Oleum Specialty Countertop Coating, the new Deep Tint Base also can be used to update other laminate surfaces in the home such as bathroom vanities, kitchen cabinets, furniture and more.
