Left unattended, spills might stain your kitchen countertop, which is why it should be cleaned regularly. Fortunately, cleaning your countertop or your kitchen doesn’t have to be tedious. You can lower your kitchen’s maintenance needs by installing easy-to-maintain features, like a low-maintenance kitchen countertop for instance.
Here are our top countertop recommendations for a low-maintenance kitchen:
1. Laminate Countertops
There are several reasons why laminate countertops are a popular choice. They don’t need a lot of upkeep, the’yre quite durable and come in a wide variety of designs and colors. Not to mention they’re one of the most affordable options on the market. If you prefer the look and feel of more premium countertop materials, ask your local kitchen remodeling expert about whether your customization options. Laminate countertops can be customized to look like granite or any other kind of material.
There’s nothing wrong with choosing trendy designs. The problem is they tend to go out of style quickly. That’s why it’s best to stick to countertops with a classic aesthetic appeal, like Corian for instance. Corian also has fairly low maintenance needs. For routine maintenance, all you need to do is wipe it with soap and water. It’s also fairly resistant to stains, heat and wear and tear.
Alternatively, you can install soapstone countertops, one of our highest-rated options. Soapstone resists hot spots, chemicals and stain damages. Not to mention it needs minimal maintenance.
4. Stainless Steel
If you’re quite particular about hygiene, stainless steel countertops are a smart choice. Since it’s resistant to dents, nicks, cuts and other forms of damage that can allow bacteria to infiltrate your countertop, stainless steel is one of the most hygienic countertop materials. Stainless steel countertops can also last for a lifetime despite requiring minimal maintenance. And unlike porous countertop materials, stainless steel doesn’t need to be resealed or refinished.
