Who wants to win a Wilsonart® HD® countertop surface?

In other words – I am giving away a stinking countertop, and a makeover consultation with HGTV’s Design on a Dime host Summer Baltazar, people…

What a way to kick-off 2013, right?

Let me lay this out for you… We (Wilsonart®  with the help of Yours Truly) are giving away…

I do not have one of these countertops. So this is not a review. I COULD have opted to have this for me, but since my kitchen is pretty new as far as kitchens go, I thought maybe one of YOU FRIENDS might like the chance at a fresh and fun kitchen update.

But mostly, I am THAT thoughtful.

  1. Momo Fali says:

    Oh, great! Now I’m going to spend the afternoon in the Room Visualizer picturing all of those lovely countertops instead of my current countertop, which is CRACKED in two places. The Raven Gemstone wants to be mine. IT DOES!

  2. Trista says:

    Oh. My. Gee!!! I would absolutely DIE if I won!

    I have been complaining about my countertops for years. They are the ugly, grey, builder grade countertops that stain almost daily.


  3. Hollee says:

    I’m going with Carnival and I totally need to win because my white tile countertops were the dumbest idea ever… At least I wasn’t the one who installed them!

  4. We are about to start a full fledged kitchen reno, including replacing over 110 sq. feet of counter space. I LOVED all that counter space until I started pricing out replacing it. Yeah, granite is out of the question. We’ve been seriously considering Wilsonart HD! Swearsies! Plus, I LOVE the look of marble for our island, but what sane person (with children) actually installs real marble for a kitchen countertop? I love the Wilsonart HD alternative!

  5. Robert C says:

    hmmm… the look of granite at a fraction of the cost. Added to my remodel list.

  6. Sarah says:

    There are samples at the Wilsonart Web site! How cool is that for making a decision.

  7. Tracy R says:

    Can’t believe what great colors it comes in!

  8. Beth Anne says:


    Actually, it would be for my momma who is about to redo her 30 year old kitchen & has no idea where to start & doesn’t have the time to figure it out. SHE NEEDS THIS.

  9. Kelly Thomas says:

    I have ceramic tile counter tops and going to the Wilsonart website made me drool.

  10. Kristin says:

    I have been looking for countertops and haven’t found exactly what I wanted yet. These look great because they look like granite but much more affordable!

  11. Jessie says:

    I think that I need this. Bella Capri would look amazing with my existing cabinets.

  12. Jacki says:

    I love how low maintenance they appear to be!

  13. Andrea says:

    My husband and I are itching for a kitchen upgrade. This is totally up our alley! At a glance, I really like the Sedona Spa. But then again I would need a pro to help me piece everything together 🙂

  14. Cindy Stockard says:

    I’ve wanted to replace my counter for such a long time…It’s a dark black/gray color. I love the Sedona Spirit and Sedona Spa colors. I would like something light but won’t show a ton of dirt. I do have two kids to deal with. (three if you count the hubby!)

  15. Lori says:

    I wouldn’t normally be selfish enough to enter and lowering the chances of someone else, but I really *need* a new countertop. Mine is faded (from time) green, splotchy, and with a burn or two on it (from, ahem, the kids, not me, of course). I like the “Sophisticated Surfaces” at the WilsonArt site. Having one would make me feel a bit more…sophisticated.

  16. Jenny says:

    my husband and i are looking in to redoing our kitchen, and i love all of the options on the wilsonart website! everything looks so awesome, and it’s actually affordable for everyone!

  17. Lori says:

    Look how desperate I am…I’m lowering another’s chances even more by tweeting for a second entry: https://twitter.com/loriseaborg/status/289483578671235072

  18. Jess Cadena says:

    Oh man, my counter tops NEED this kind of love! We have sharp edge crappy tiles that catch everyone, especially the little ones that love to run circles though the kitchen! We’re doing the whole “We’ll deal until we can’t take it anymore” thing.

    Wilsonart comes in so many colors! I have my dream kitchen in my head already so when I clicked over I immediately searched for (and found) the color I’ve been dreaming of. Sahhweet!

  19. Melissa says:

    We just replaced our countertop (original from when our house was built in 1987) this past summer… I really wish I had heard about Wilsonart before we did. I love that they offer free samples, too!

  20. La Rae says:

    oooh… a new Bronze Eclipse countertop, but then I might as well redesign the island for more storage… and get a new sink… and then, we might as well look at double ovens… and, yeah… Bronze Eclipse…

  21. Michelle Hadash says:

    Interesting find! I had never heard of this and I’m not far from Temple, so fun find!! I have been drooling over the counter tops for about an hour, that’s when you know its time to get the white laminate out of your kitchen! I LOVE the look and will actually be checking out this product even if we don’t win! Thanks!

  22. Annegirrl says:

    I like that it is a much more attractive option to laminate. I have laminate now and while they are functional, they are really ugly and these look pretty.

  23. Lindsy says:

    The River Gemstone counter tops are beautiful!

  24. Erin says:

    Oh, we so need new counters. And new cabinets, and a new layout, and somehow to cram some more storage and functionality into our wee annoying kitchen.

    I can’t decide if I’d want Deepstar Mineral or Bella Reale… decisions decisions…

  25. Jennifer K. C. says:

    I love the Sedona Spa surface… I think my husband would too!

  26. Allison Browning says:

    So, I’ve lived in my home for three years. The one thing I despise most about my house is the outdated, horrible bright yellow countertops that just stains easily. Looking on the website, I was relived to see that there is hope for the world of kitchen countertops-something that looks like you are stinking rich, but actually is priced for a family that is on a budget. Of course, I do like the many options-possibly something in the medium color shade family -so that when I do destroy dinner for the family, they won’t be able to see the horrible mess I’ve made. I’m confident that Wilsonart would be the perfect match for me and my (growing) family. With a new baby on the way, my kitchen will need something that can take life’s dings and dents-just what Wilsonart does for countertops.

  27. Staci says:

    OMG. I’d like to take that kitchen that’s on their front page with the terra cotta walls and white cabinets and AH MA ZING sink and put it in my awful builder grade kitchen from 1989!

  28. Brittany says:

    OMG! I am neck deep in redoing our kitchen AS WE SPEAK, and I was just sitting here debating what organ I could sell for new countertops. THIS COULD NOT BE MORE PERFECT!

    Also….I adore the Bengal Slate. HARD.

  29. Joanna says:

    omg. We are redoing our kitchen floors this March and can’t afford to do countertops this year. This would be amazing. I am in love with the summer carnival color. Would be perfect!

  30. StephG says:

    This stuff is new to me! It looks fantastic! I’d love to have some Bella Capri in my kitchen

  31. Robin says:

    I would love to win this! The colors offered are fantastic. I love the project gallery, the I
    ntegrated sink and decorative edges.

  32. Kristine Eley says:

    I love the room visualizer!

  33. Melissa I says:

    We will be replacing our counter tops this summer! Ours are so horrible…you put a cup of coffee down and there will be a permanent ring! I ordered some samples and really like the Brazilian Summer Carnival.

  34. Tarrah says:

    Crystalline Ice wants to be in my kitchen. It’s only fair to give the countertop what it wants.

  35. Shirra Hanna says:

    I love the Sedona series colors, especially the Sedona Spirit. We are in desperate need of a makeover and would love the help of a professional!

  36. Jodi says:

    My counter top is a really pretty tile but it destroys all of our shirts. When you are working at it the material catches on the tiles and the entire family walks around with holes in the front of their shirt by their waistband. The money I have spent on buying new shirts could have bought me a new countertop! this Wilsonart is lovely!!

  37. Wow, Room Visualizer on Wilsonart’s website sure is a handy gadget. I have my new kitchen all picked out! 😉 Thanks, Jenny!

  38. Molly Tomlinson says:

    I would love to win! Love the winter carnival countertop!

  39. Sara Wilson says:

    Love the countertops. My kitchen is the last of my remodel projects and I’m stuck because I don’t really know where to start.

  40. Kristin Gabrielson says:

    The Raven Gemstone looks great in my fantasy kitchen!!

  41. Erica Mueller says:

    I desperately need a new counted. I have horrid tile ones with nasty grout 🙁 I live the raven gemstone with a cool undermounted sink.

  42. Jenn says:

    I don’t think I would complain if Winter Carnival came to live in my kitchen. Reglaze the cabinets, change the knobs and add a new island, and finally put my already purchased slate tile on the floor, and my kitchen would be DONE. Well, and a sink, but that seems to be included, so I’m down that.

  43. Hmmm. So many choices! I’m not a fan of granite prices, and I’m not a fan of plain jane laminate either but this looks like a nice compromise. My 1989 custom home has beveled countertops with WOOD inlaid, so the fact that WilsonArt offers a rounded edge makes me swoon. Now to decide a color. Maybe Luna Winter?

  44. Leanne says:

    I have a kitchen built in 1980! I really need an update! I love the room visualizer! Love the look of the counters and the fact that they are rounded/smooth! The Wilsonart HD counters not only look great they apparently clean easily. I sooo need a new kitchen!

  45. Leanne says:

    I tweeted!! Leanne Sanchez ‏@LeanneSanchez

    Thx! I really need a new kitchen! Mine is 80’s! Luv the rm vzlizr, @jennyonthespot @wilsonart, ck this contest http://bit.ly/ZN7qZb

  46. Karns says:

    I love the look of the deepstar tint and the safe rounded corners. We totally need a kitchen makeover and this would help!

  47. Jenny says:

    I am loving that Carnival line! I seriously need this beautiful countertop in my kitchen!

  48. Stacy M. says:

    Wow – so many beautiful options! I think I would go with Tuscan limestone. The room visualizes is great. Thanks for introducing me to this company and website!

  49. Karla says:

    So cool! I like their limestone looks and let me tell you, my kitchen could use some help!

  50. Erin B. says:

    I love the wilsonart hd countertops! They look great, and are very affordable! Perfect if you’re on a budget like mine! What a great giveaway 🙂

  51. Stacey says:

    So I loved it when I won the package of peppermint Oreos or the laundry soap (or when you gave me those pair of Crocs), but I really really want to win this one. Like really. And I really really want one of those sinks that is all seamless and therefore no nasty stuff is going to get stuck in the gross edge that meets the counter top. Said counter top has busted grout and chipped edges. I bet the beautiful smooth edges of Wilsonart wouldn’t chip now would it?! Just sayin…

  52. Sarah Reed says:

    That you should not use acidic or abrasive cleaners or bleach to clean the countertop.

  53. Courtney says:

    I love the Bengal Slate color! We need a new kitchen countertop desperately. Our current one actually has a whole cut into it with a very old and dingy wooden cutting board placed in it. It is a disgusting eyesore and non-functional for our needs. I’d love to see a Wilsonart countertop in our kitchen. I think it would help me to enjoy cooking dinner more, too!

  54. Michelle Kay says:

    The virtual room designer had me at Perla Piazza! I didn’t know countertops had turned into art!! ART UP my Kitchen Jenny!! <3

  55. Rhi says:

    I REALLY HATE OUR COUNTERTOPS. And, I really love the Sedona Spirit color.

  56. Teresa C says:

    those countertops would be awesome in my kitchen and would just make it look so updated

  57. emma reeves says:

    My countertops have the original “sad” and cheap white tops, it was built in 1997..I NEED NEW ONES

  58. Andrea says:

    I really like the variety they offer, and the finishing is amazing. It really does look like real granite. I have a kitchen that was remodeled 12 years ago. Crappily done laminate countertops that are scratched and chipped and dull. Plus a white sink, not enameled, that is chipped, cut and stained. I REALLY need a makeover.

  59. Marcie says:

    I need the kitchen consultation and the kitchen countertop, my kitchen is straight out of the 1970s! HELP!

  60. Lisa says:

    Like I needed to venture down this path…. my affordable kitchen redo is all about paint so that I can live with my horrid hunter green tile countertops. It will never be my happy kitchen until that green is gone! So.. I just killed a load of time browsing Wilsonart. Loving some of the dark countertops.. like Bella Vinito and Ebony Eclipse. Either would ROCK the paint colors we are doing.

  61. Angie says:

    Ooops, sorry, went to visit the Wilsonart website and lost track of time. I adore that room visualizer and love the options. My Mom overhauled her kitchen just a few months ago and had Wilsonart countertops installed and I was completely impressed with them. It’s time for an overhaul on our kitchen now too 🙂

  62. Nicole H. says:

    Oh man, I want this. The Mystic Gemstone would look great in my kitchen.

    I have nice cherry cabinets, but the previous owners went with the cheapest white with pastel flakes laminate for the countertops. Makes the whole kitchen look cheap.

    I think I’ll be spending hours on the Wilsonart site daydreaming of new countertops.

  63. Kim S says:

    Love that an under mount sink exists now with the laminate granite looking tops. YAY!!!!!!!! BEAUTIFUL

  64. Heike says:

    The colors they offer are amazing! I would love to have a countertop from them 🙂

  65. Paula Diekhoff says:

    My gosh, my kitchen SO needs updating, but I am too scared and too confused to make a decision. However, I did find great satisfaction in using the WilsonArt Room Vizualizer where I could see countertop colors against cabinet colors. It was really helpful! But I need the whole package — design consultation and that new countertop. I’m old enough to be your grandma, I’m sure, and I have never had one ounce of intuition on how to put things together. So, pick me and make this “old lady” proud to show off a new kitchen. BTW, do you do other rooms…….??? (LOL!)

  66. We need a new counter SO MUCH right now. We’re trying to add a breakfast bar to our kitchen (once we save up enough for the whole project) so we have a little bit more counter space in the kitchen and room for the kids to help with meal prep, and I’ve recently started looking at cabinets and countertops. Winning a countertop would make our goal happen so much faster!

    The room visualizer is awesome, and I’m now showing the options to my husband trying to get his take on countertops. My favorite is the Crystalline Shell, but I also like Sedona Spirit and it’s probably the best match for our kitchen.

  67. Tina Waldher says:

    The Kitchen Visualizer is a great tool! Our countertops need a facelift and I found several combinations that would well with our home.

  68. Lisa Lodter says:

    My very old kitchen needs new granite countertops!

  69. Kim Uyyek says:

    Perfect timing! We’ve been talking about redoing our kitchen. It’s over 20 years old. I love the look of Deepstar Slate and Bella Reale.

  70. Nicole Vosburgh says:

    We just bought our first home this past summer and our kitchen is the worst eyesore of our house. The countertops, aren’t even real, but rather, they are just laminate that the previous owners laid down. There are so many stains on the counters, that it is actually gross looking. Mustard stains, chocolate stains, you name it, because it’s laminate. I just spent the last 20 minutes, google-eyed over on the Wilsonart website! How gorgeous! So many choices, but I think I am leaning more towards darker countertops since our current kitchen is all white. I really like the 1831K Raven Gemstone color. Thank you so much for the generous giveaway!

  71. rachel travis says:

    Oh my word, did you *have* to make me go to their website!!?! We’ve been renovating our house “DIY” style since we bought it and looking at the countertops made me drool! I love the Deepstar Slate – so classy. Thanks for this awesome opportunity!!!

    rachelmarietravis at gmail dot com

  72. I like the African Slate countertops

  73. Julie says:

    My kitchen is from 1968 (no joke) and desperately needs an update! Hubs is an architect and we’ve been researching. I like that Wilson countertops are laminate, because I’ve learned that’s greener, and we really want to be as green as possible. The rounded edges are another really nice feature. Winter Carnival would look awesome in my kitchen!

  74. We’ve been dreaming of a kitchen makeover for years. These countertops would be a great way to kick-off the fun! I think Desert Passage would be a great match in my kitchen.

  75. melissa says:

    We are in the market for a new countertop. Ours is corian and has a HUGE crack alongside the stovetop. Ugly. I can’t believe how far laminate has come over the years. http://www.wilsonarthd.com/productdetail.aspx?Id=1&cid=293704&bp=33734 is one of the surfaces I would choose. Purdy.

  76. Tweeted! https://twitter.com/techmama/status/292335669961973760 I would love to try to Wilsonart visualizer on the site to dream about a new dreamy kitchen:-)

  77. Carmen says:

    I LOVE the granite. We had it in our old (too expensive for us, sigh) house and it is one of the things I miss most about that house.

  78. The River Gemstone would be perfect in my kitchen. The floor and cabinets are great but the laminent counter tops and stained sink have got to go. This would be awesome as there are no funds to do that right now.

  79. Sherry Allebach says:

    I love the Room Visualizer! I have my kitchen plan and color scheme!

  80. Holy smokes! This stuff is gorgeous. I would love LOVE love Deepstar Bronze or Deepstar Mineral.

  81. Kimberly says:

    OH, so many pretty choices! My chipped mauve countertops could sure use some love!

  82. I like that bella reale surface the most. I think. We currently have 1970’s mustard yellow and are slowly, slowly saving for new countertops. I fear we’ll never make it there. Le sigh.

  83. I have Wilsonart countertops in my kitchen and LOOOOOOVE them. I get compliments constantly and people are always shocked when I tell them its laminate. I’d love to upgrade my bathrooms next…maybe in something lighter like the Silver Travertine! 🙂

  84. I don’t think you know how much I NEEEEED these! Our counters aren’t even fastened to the cabinets. We could pretty much pick them up and walk around the house with them. Not cool previous owners. Not cool!

    I didn’t know Wilsonart had SINKS!! I am in love with the offset white sink. Absolute. True. Love.

  85. Dina Malkiewicz says:

    Love the variety in your inventory. Also, love the room visualizer. What a great idea!

  86. Connie Farish says:

    Wow!!! I’ve been wanting to re-do my kitchen since the day we bought this house, four years ago!! I’d LOVE to win a new counter top from Wilsonart (Salentina Nero is my favorite!) and paint my oak cabinets antique white.

    Or, re-do the guest bathroom counter top!

  87. Carl Esakson says:

    my wife and I had a little problem with our kitchen. a month ago we had a pipe burst and flooded our kitchen. now we have to redo most of our kitchen. we went to a local lumber company to check out cabinet prices. since we need to replace the countertop too, the rep told us about getting the Wilson Art HD laminates. she showed us a sample of the Winter Carnival. we fell in love with it. everyone that we show it too, thinks its granite. I went to the website and ordered some other samples too. this contest couldn’t come at a better time. we are just now starting to color shop. it would really help out to receive a free consultation and free countertop. thanks for the chance at both of these!!

  88. Brad Green says:

    We need the “Sadona Spa” counter top with a beveled edge to a left offset icory bowl pretty-please!

    Thanks for the chance.

    Brad & Val

  89. I love the sedona spirit with the crescent edge. I would be so ecstatic to win a new counter top. We have the most horrendous counter and haven’t been able to replace it yet. Thanks for the chance to win! You’re pretty flipping awesome!

  90. Pick me, pick me…my countertop is too shiny!

  91. Amy says:

    Ohhh. Love this! Love the Deepstar Bronze! Thanks for this contest! See my tweet! @amymunns

  92. Jeanne says:

    I have known about and helped sell Wilsonart Laminate and countertops while working at the Home Depot. I always loved their color selections. However, wow! They have added two new and incredible features…integrated sinks and a great edge detail. My mouth is literally wide open. I never would have considered a laminate countertop because of the sink issue. But wow! What an awesome change. Ok, anyway, a remodel/addition is in the works and the kitchen phase will be starting in about a year.

    Wow! Did you see that sink!!!

  93. Sheila says:

    I have had WilsonArt laminate countertops and I love them. So many options to choose from!
