Kitchen countertops are an important part of every kitchen. Whenever you decide to spruce up the kitchen area, it is important to consider the kitchen countertop. Building custom kitchen cabinets and installing new appliances will not give a great look to the kitchen if the countertop continues to look dull and tattered. Do not worry about the cost of kitchen countertops. If you choose the right countertop after thorough consideration, it will last a lifetime. So, it is best to invest in one that lasts for a long time and doesnt demand maintenance. Choose a low maintenance countertop that can stand the kitchen heat.
Countertop Materials. Countertops that are covered in Formica are the most common as well as being the cheapest, however, they are likely to wear out quite quickly, and Formica covered countertops can be easily damaged. Placing a hot pan straight from the oven on to a Formica covered countertop can cause the material to bubble and crack, and this is damage will not be easy to repair, and could result in the replacement of that entire section.
Corian countertops are extremely durable, more costly, and are an attempt to mimic a natural stone look for a more affordable price. Tile has been used for centuries and is popular choice in Europe and South American kitchen designs. If one tile is damaged it can be removed and replaced without having to replace the whole countertop. Natural materials come in tile form also, and are a great compromise in both style and price. Concrete countertops have been more popular recently, but are losing their appeal, because of higher upkeep involved and change of consumer taste. For the eco-conscious consumer, there are more choices of recycled materials being used in countertops. One popular choice is recycled colored glass bits set in a polyresin matrix producing an Art Deco look that is colorful, durable, and earth-friendly.
