The countertop is often the busiest part of the kitchen and it tends to be the messiest as well. That is why it’s important to choose a countertop material that is easy to clean and maintain. Fortunately, there are several countertop choices that you can choose from. Learn more about them here as home remodeling expert DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen of Southeast Florida shares some basic facts about your low-maintenance countertop options.
Laminate countertops have been a long-time favorite of homeowners. Apart from being affordable, these countertops are also known for being versatile. Laminate is usually made in different colors and patterns, and it can even be designed to mimic the look of granite and other premium countertop materials. This material is definitely easy to clean and moisture-resistant, so you can keep it looking good for a long time.
If you want a low-maintenance countertop that can deliver superior performance, stainless steel would be the best option. Stainless steel countertops have excellent heat resistance, so hot pans can’t easily damage them. They’re also resistant to food and juice stains. You can easily clean up spills with mild soap. Furthermore, stainless steel countertops don’t require sealing or refinishing. If you’re interested in using stainless steel for your kitchen cabinets, that might work too.
For solid-surface countertops, Corian and soapstone are usually the most popular choices. Cleaning solid-surface countertops are pretty easy — soap and water would normally do. Another good option for solid-surface countertops is resin. This particular material is resistant to heat, staining and impact.
